May I ask; what's wrong with the school now, is it falling apart? I understand our town is growing which is and will be bringing in more students and we will continue to grow in the years ahead which will be bringing in more students, but do we need a whole new school to accommodate the growth of a few hundred more students. Touch up the existing school and expand to accommodate the growth. I know Holly Blackwelder has her contractors license and she may see things that I and the general public may miss, but the county has taken real good care of this school and I just can't see our tax dollars being spent on building an entire new school then spend more of our tax dollars to tear the down the "old" school.

Things cost more than they use to..........
You get what you pay for-----
SCHOOL MONEY IS AN ENDLESS BLACK HOLE / PITFALL THAT EVERY YEAR I LOOK FOR THEM TO ASK FOR MORE MONEY.
FACT IS .69c OF EVERY TAX DOLLAR GOES TO THE SCHOOL SYSTEM ? WILD HUH ??? and they still can't make it work $$$$$$$$$$

The school system can't make it because they have to have new furniture each year.. look at the surplus materials they have -- it looks like the old Rhodes Furniture Store. That is part of the problem . Education doesn't have the newest innovations all the time (just keep us updated).

We do not have to all have all the teachers blue tooths walking around. ok.......

Can you say mis managing funds - not in an illegal way just in a stupid way.(very wasteful spending).

The administrators are much more educated than the choices they make.(don't loose your common sense) administrators...... please......

Tax payers are the ones getting ripped off - you and I are paying the price for our kids to go to a hollywoood looking school without as much substance. I would rather have more scholored teachers and administrators than a las vegas, nc.
we don't need a MARSH-VEGAS for instance for a school system. Why pay for a Cadillac when a buick will drive just as good.(but no lets pimp up the cadillac also / not just purchasing the lot/ but stick them out there pimped up to the top. unbelievable. I'm sad for our school board and system. we have definitely failed the tax payer s an now even the kids ? what is your purpose? use the kiss method/ keep it simple stupid.
