The fee amounts currently aren't listed on the meeting agenda.

Edwin Ison

Thanks, the numbers are there now. $730 for a sport? Seems criminal. I have many friends with children at Perkins.
Better open enroll your kids at Edison quickly, not sure how many spots are available.

Or...you could pay on average $25 a month for the levy and support the students

VOTENO

Nah, I will send my kids to Margaretta and keep my "$25" per month.

VOTENO

And send all that open enrollment cash to Margaretta! Go Polar Bears!

Heck ya!! Our boy is in football practice currently..GO BEARS !!!

yesshedid

you will spend more than "25" a month on gas alone!

If the levy passes, the fees will return to what they were in the past. Twenty five dollars a month for the levy is a better deal than what it would cost for the pay to participate fee. LETS PASS THIS LEVY!!!!!

Run and hide. . . Step up and support our own. If our community supported our schools we wouldn't be where we are

No free computers. Will save $1,185,745! Might be an option to save jobs!

Typical scare tactic.

WesTaylor

They simply do not have the $$$. You do the math. I wish it were a scare tactic. It will end up being much more than a scare if we can't come together for our future. I am voting yes, then getting some of the BOE outta here in November.

fifteenthgreen

Stay focused!

WesTaylor

Gee. I hope you are right. If not, then we are going to be one sad district!

The new building is now put on hold until the district is financially stable. You have it right. Lets now pass this levy so that we can not only support the teachers but what is most important.....THE STUDENTS!!!!!!

VOTENO

They don't need the money if they aren't building Gunners taj majal. Move the money back and problem solved. Move the money back for the kids amd vote no for our future.

BetterTomorrow

Voting no and for the kids is not the same

Common Sense

Please tell us all how many board meetings you have attended to become an infromed voter. How much of the literature sent out by the district have you reviewed? It is truly sad that you have nothing mmore to say and nothing to back your reasoning. Thank goodness, one of the "critical thinking skills" taught to the students at Perkins is how to weigh out the advantages and the disadvantages and make a responsible decision.

yesshedid

amen!

I'm Done

Were you at the meeting were the treasurer stated that with pay to play and the athletic boosters, the athletics is such as minute part of our budget that it isn't worth touching? So, how do we go from that to $730? I was at the meeting where Gunner stated that if the levies failed they would have to move the inside milage back. What happened to that? I'm so tired of it. Everyone keeps saying take the BOE out in November. What about Gunner? His contract expires Aug. How can you bring him back? If he receives another contract, I am voting NO and sending my student to another district.

Perkins12345

Clearly you have not attended any of the board meetings or reviewed any of the literature pertaining to moving the money back. When you know the facts maybe then you have the right to comment. Moving money back has nothing to do with the cuts being made at the state level. Why would you ever want to vote no for a childs future? Do you have children? If so, I feel bad for them!!!

I'm Done

I have been to many of the meeting. Apparently you haven't been to the ones that only would draw 10 people. Must be a new attandie. My whole point is the way the BOE can change what they say and then deny it. Calm down. You shouldn't feel bad for my children. They are doing excellent in life due to parenting not the school.

I'm Done

Actually, it is the attacks against those that are against the BOE that is the problem. How do you expect to persuade a no voter to change their minds when you start personally attacking people?

Where are you getting your information?

This levy IS TO BUILD A NEW BUILDING.

Gunner moved the operating funds out of operations and into permanent improvement fund after a levy for a new building failed TWICE.

Gunner has now essentially bankrupted the school district so they are classifying this levy as operating and threatening all of these cuts!

All Gunner needs to do is move the operating funds back where they rightfully belong... to operations to educate the district's students!

Perkins12345, the new building is not put on hold. It is full steam ahead as soon as they pass a building (disguised as operating) levy.

Perkins12345

Right now the issue is not the building. Right now the issue is passing the levy so that students get the best education possible. We do NOT want the students to feel the hurt of the reduction of programs. Once the levy passes and the district becomes financially stable they will pursue the building. The building being on hold was announced tonight at the board meeting. If you want to hear it for yourself, they have the live video posted. WATCH IT FOR YOURSELF!!!

fifteenthgreen

Stay the course!

citizen

What exactly do you mean by "financially stable?" I will tell you what it means.... once this building levy passes, they will build the new high school!

Again, I cannot make it any simpler.

Gunner and Board recently took out a $3 million loan from Citizens Bank to plan and design the new school. Why on earth would they do this if they were "putting the new building on hold." If that is the case, they are worse leaders than any of us imagined. WAKE UP.

Perkins12345

VOTE YES!!! SAVE OUR STUDENTS!!!!!
