Perkins Schools contract cut by $1 million; $11 million left to go

Non-teaching Perkins Schools employees approved a new 5-year contract this week that will save the district nearly $1 million during the next four years.

That's one step.

The school board still can't agree on the next step, however, and determining what programs and staff members must be cut to save an additional $11 million remains unresolved.

Board members initially planned to announce two rounds of district-wide cuts last week and approve them this week.

After several hours of discussion during executive, closed-door meetings, however, they have yet to release vote for an approved list. 

"There are lots of options we need to discuss," board president Matt Kosior said. "If there was one good option we would have done it a long time ago. None of these cuts are cuts we want to make."

Two no votes from this house. Im also considering adopting the woman from cincinatti who voted 6 times in the last election to vote no also. Oh wait she voted for obama so she doesnt mind reckless spending that goes against the wishes of the people who are supposed to be setting the goverment agenda with their votes.

Bwahahaha! That didn't take long.

Why vote no? Yes, I understand taxes will increase by about 20 dollars give or take a few. But, if this levy does not pass teachers will be cut and students education will go down. Is that what you want? If you want to keep teachers and keep the Perkins students education excellent you will vote yes on this levy!

Actually, I fill out the absentee ballot for 3 grandparents and 2 parents. So I will be voting for 6 people on are levies.
(Yes, I know it's our and not are. Simple spelling mistakes amuse me. But then again, if that person is a 2007 Perkins grad, maybe the schools need all the help they can get.)

bobshumway92

That was my point. If that person is a 2007 grad, why give more money to a school that turns out that type of grad? Isn't the school ranked in the bottom in the area?

Not Yer Pa

But Bob, if the leveys fail the kids will loose out on there education. Are kids deserve the goodest things you're money can buy!

oldpirate

Vote yes

bobshumway92

I will cancel your vote by voting no.

Not Yer Pa

I'm going to keep it fair and get drunk as a dispatcher that day and not vote at all.

Why would anyone vote for this levy? I get it that the school is loosing money but why would they continue to hold money to build a school? Now that KBI is laying off, how will these people be able to afford it. It is hard times for everyone except for people on the boe. I am ashamed of our school board and how they are acting, I want it now, now, now!!!!! They seem like they will say anything or do anything to get this school built and if it costs jobs along the way it does not matter, Gunner got his way. I am still voting no and I always will until someone with some sense gets on the BOE.

I will definitely vote NO! Im so fed up with ALL school systems around this area, not one of them truly give 2 sh$ts! Im hoping the first thing to go is the sports! Get rid of them, it causes prejudices between children because the adults that run that school encourage it! Im so fed up with the same kids taking slots in any event that goes on, leaving so many others to feel like they do nothing right, and that their not good enough! Nice way to make children feel there STAFF OF PHS! Then you have EVERY school district crying about how broke they are well pss pss because its taking its toll on ALL of us! This is not just Perkins, its everywhere but when the citizens always play into and give them what they want they lay it on thicker the next time they put a levy on the ballot! No offense but as long as Perkins has open enrollment why should we vote yes on anything. My child was put in Perkins and NOT Sandusky for a reason, but yet how many kids are here from Sandusky? If they want to attend Perkins force the parents to move to the township and take on some of the financial burden! Easy as cake, they make their decisions sound so difficult! Put individuals into the decision making seats that can make these vital decisions without the amount of difficulty these fools seem to be having! And last but not least THE SUPERINTENDENT needs to GO! He has no care about what truly goes on in Perkins, he doesn't live here, he doesn't support the township, he's here for his paycheck! I can say from 6 years ago when my kids attended Perkins until now with my youngest child in Perkins there is a big difference in the way things are done! My first two were treated with respect, prospered in several things, 1:1 help given when needed in the classroom, and my youngest son is constantly getting bullied, he's extremely athletic but gets cut from all sports because several Sandusky kids have taken the spots and he doesn't have an "important" name, this time around has been the worst experience ive had in having all of my children pass through the educational system! I will NEVER again support a levy for Perkins until they get their heads out of their a$$es!

Or SHS, his son could play there. Both schools need help. As a bonus he'd be sticking it to Sandusky taxpayers. Click the SHS advertisement and find out what SHS has to offer your son. Or complain anonymously on here and allow your son to be deprived of opportunities. Voting no won't be a cure all. You owe it to your son and to your own mental health.
