They are doing their job jerk. If you read and k.we what they are fighting for its for the kids..... Not themselves. Wth would any board member like kids in trailers and say its healthy.... Davis reidel and daniello don't know what they are getting themselves into. Let's see how many kids w pulmonary and respiratory issues get pnemonia and are sick and sue the district because the kids have to go outside in the cold and hot humidity just to go to the bathroom or get a drink or to go to gym .... Duh.... Retarded.... If you even knew what it was like to have those conditions you would know a trailer is the worst thing. Also why are the high poverty schools NOT getting any trailers???? Idiots..... And NO...... I'm NOT a teacher or even work in this pathetic district thank fricken god.

Suck it up? You're saying that our children need to suck it up? They have been sucking it up, and it is affecting their learning and causing test scores to go down. Yes, that's right the research is clear and overwhelming that transitions have a negative and lasting impact on student achievement. The more transitions, the more impact. It's not enough to say that kids are resilient, if that were so then they would be able to quickly and easily bounce back from a number of horrible things that happen to them in their young lives. They don't, and everyone knows that if we want to raise healthy well-adjusted children, then we have to be careful in what we say and do to them. We have to be careful in how we educate them. Students with a solid support system at home have an easier time making transitions but are still negatively affected by them. Imagine those student who don't have good support at home! That's a good majority of our school district and those schools that house them will be hardest hit by the reconfiguration next year...more trailers, more students, more crowding, more distraction. Our school board is not doing the best by our students. They are putting buildings ahead of students. How can that be right in anyone's book? They are the Board of EDUCATION. And the teachers...well I applaud their actions. It takes courage to go out in the community (that often is so critical) and take a stand for their students, our children. They do the best they can given the product they work with and the lemons (decisions)the board is ALWAYS giving them, expecting lemonade. The board should listen to and use their expertise as educators. They don't. They don't listen to taxpayers and they are ultimately accountable to us. They don't listen to anyone, and there is a slight majority (the five) there who have been putting our school district in ruins for years. The buck stops there at the school board with test scores. It's time for us to support that minority of 4 who really think about education first. That is, after all, the board's mandate.

Maybe the teachers should go on strike. Then the board could hire people like HOT TAMALE to teach our students...haha. LOSER..these teachers should be appauled for standing up for our students. Parents are being mislead. Your students arent guarenteed to stay in their home school.

if there isnt enough room they will be bussed to another school and it could be a trailer. Yes, its true . Mr. Simons is keeping that a secret. Along with the absestos is being removed in the summer and on the weekends so it could be partially occypied and of course thats being covered up as well. Parents start a petition its your right about not being informed. Your the only solution to stop this and stand up for your kids otherwise your kids will suffer. It's sad when 1 vote caused this. All because these board members dont care. Very sad. ask questions. demand answers

also the special ed classes have to be placed back into the home schools too. So they will take up space that Simons hasnt thought of so your kids will be bussed to these trailers and you will be mislead thinking that their staying in their home schools for 5th grade. Watch and see. He's lying to you parents. He has 15 trailers or more coming located at gans, denti, Bellamy, and fort so you put it together people,
