Well, thank you very much for the report and information gathered. I have made my decision! Mrs. Skinner speaks more for the voters and speaks the truth, from administrators taking a pay cut to the school lunches. How can leadership justify minimizing teachers, who the students need every day for their future successes, while they hire another administrator at $90,000 per year? By NOT hiring this person, that would easily cover the lunch losses that Mr. Burgett said we could not afford!!! Are you kidding me? How insane is that, really?

I want to see administration temporarily sacrifice their own staff, in order to maintain adequate teachers and cooks. Thank you Mrs. Skinner!!! As for Mr. Burgett, you need to spend the remainder of your time on the board eating lunch with our kids. Maybe then you can relate to the citizens again.

i agree with the last comment. helen has her head on straight. it's time for fresh faces to pull this community out of the rut it's been in. mr. burgett obviously cares about the health of the children as much as the ceo of mcdonalds cares about the obesity of our country. it's always about the almighty dollar. there are things that can be cut, but and nutrition isn't one of them. are you still teaching a class on nutrition? maybe he should sit in on one. and it would be wonderful to see local food in our schools. let's help each other out for a change!
