The 189 students missing must be black and are probably enrolled in thug school or on a full scholarship @ DOC in Florida! Playing flag football on cracker beach!

Honestly it's not surprising. I think it'll continue to drop, too. There is nothing here to keep our young people from moving off. Very, very few decent jobs and absolutely nothing to do for entertainment that isn't an hour away.

Kids are growing up and moving off. Can't blame them.

189 students is equivelent to a greater number of families that are not in the area; living, shopping, working, or paying taxes....

You have no clue! My WHITE children were moved out of the district. They are not thugs, they are normal everyday children with good grades and no behavior problems. My daughter cheers and my son plays football, classic all american people. We moved due to the lack of concern for education in Jackson County as well as the new dress code. My children have never been in trouble for violating the previous dress code yet were being punished by those who couldn't obey. Good luck JaCo.

If my house would sell they will be down 3 more. Houses are real hard to sell in Jackson County, more so than other areas because there is nothing to offer a buyer. And don't say low taxes either, because the flip side of that record is you get what you pay for....

Sounds like there are some smart parents who moved the hell away from that place!

Actually, my children were already withdrawn from the district on the last day of school. The new uniform policy has only been approved over the summer. You have no clue what you're talking about. As for my children and their future professions, they will both be wearing uniforms...my daughter will pursue her nursing degree and my son will be entering the Marines.

Exactly. There is nothing whatsoever to attract people to this county.(Not people that can actually afford to buy a house of their own.)

There are no jobs or industry to attract people here, and that's just the way your county commissioners and "big whigs" like it.

We are not selling because of the school district. To tell the truth, our kids have had nothing but a great experience at MHS and have gotten to be part of and do a lot of wonderful things. They want to finish here, and really who can blame them, they are happy. So finish here, they will. We intend to leave because of the area in general.
Good grief

My children are 17 and 18 years old, they have planned their own futures and worked very hard to make their plans happen. You keep trying to degrade me and act like being a supportive parent is wrong. That is what's wrong with people these days. Our job as parents is to ensure they have the best education possible and prepare them for the real world. They both go to High School full time and they both have jobs. They each paid for half of their vehicle and they pay their insurance, gas, and cell phone bills. You can say all the mean things you would like but you will never make me feel like a fool for being a great parent.

You also have no clue, we didn't move because of the dress code. We moved before the dress code was even announced. Know your facts before you post ridiculous comments.

I do not think that JC has a lack of concern for education as a whole. If they did, why would my child and many others, have had and have the opportunity be dual enrolled at Chipola, what an opportunity for a kid, to get college classes out of the way, FREE! There are so many programs FCCLA, FFA, sports, music, reading, dance line, cheerleading, for kids to participate if they choose to. if they do not, hey, that's free choice and no one should be put down for whether or not they participate. And the dress code, well what do you know, we are the umpteenth district in the United States to adopt one. It is what it is!

You just stated above that you moved due to the lack of concern for education AND the change in dress code. Know your facts yourself! Do you really know why you moved? Because now it's confusing.

This dress code is just a smoke screen for the 4 of 5 Board members who over saw the elimination of the $20 million dollar surplus Danny Simms left. They are also so concerned about their re-election they lack the courage to admit it and fix it. Keep digging the hole.....we will cover u up soon!
