We just passed a renewal levy. What are you trying to say?

devilsadvocate

Did they cut the new building yet?

Vote4Perkins

The new building is on hold until we are finically stable.

citizen

When you say "financially stable" you must mean pass this levy.

As soon as this levy passes, the new building is full-go.

Don't be silly.... this is a building levy, not an operations levy.

If this is a building levy then why were 16 teaching positions as listed on the board minutes cut? Does cutting teachers have anything to do with a building levy?

Gunner and the Board all need to resign.

Vote them out. It's up to you. Pass the levy and vote out the board. Simple

VOTENO

Vote NO AND vote them OUT!

Vote4Perkins

There are 2,400 plus reasons to vote yes in August. Vote the Board out in November. Don't vote emotionally, vote rationally.

VOTENO

Don't tell us we're emotional. We are fiscally responsible. VOTE NO! MOVE THE MONEY BACK!

Vote4Perkins

The Board is fiscally responsible! They are cutting because they can't run in the red. Moving the millage back won't help...you would still need to pass a levy. Go the the meetings and be informed...

fifteenthgreen

When is the next meeting?

citizen

The board is fiscally responsible? HA

This is a building levy. NO TO A BUILDING LEVY.

I would somewhat consider an operations levy, although the district still operates fiscally irresponsbile? A communications director? REALLY? Cut ole' Gasiterer and save $100,000 per year! (And I don't mean cut him in 2 years, CUT THE POSITION NOW!... If it's not needed in 2 years, why on earth is it needed today?!)

Perkins12345

This is irrelevant....if you knew what the board minutes said (VII H.) you would hopefully be able to read the names listed under the positions eliminated.

Sadly, Mr. Gastier has been RIFed.

fifteenthgreen

Times have sadly changed.

As a voter you have the power to vote them out in November. At this point it is imperative to do what is best for out students. If that levy does not pass then students WILLL be effected. They will lose art, music, gym, computer and other extracurricular activities. If this levy passes they will get all of this back and again get the great education that Perkins provides. VOTE YES!!!

Perkins2060

I will be voting no as will all my neighbors and everyone I talk to.

Perkins12345

That saddens me because I thought it was an adults responsibility to look out for the best interest of children. This levy is about giving students the education that they deserve. It is sad to know that adults voting no don't really care about these students and the educational programs that they receive.

Vote4Perkins

You are more than welcome to vote in November for new board members...just sayin'

VOTENO

I advise any parents thinking about open enrolling their children in Perkins to think twice. Can you afford all the fees? Is Perkins really better than your district? I hear a lot of Perkins parents are looking at Margaretta, Huron, Sandusky, and Edison. Gunnner and his board's plan has backfired. They now will lose a ton of dollars when Perkins parents pull their kids from Perkins and open enrollment kids from other districts pull their kids from Perkins. Perkins is a joke thanks to Gunner and this board. All the other districts are laughing all the way to the bank.

Vote4Perkins

If parents move their children to other districts, they will pay way more in taxes than they ever imagined. This "plan" has not backfired...if you attended the Board Meeting tonight you would have heard we have a wait list on Open Enrollment.

If you don't like the decisions the board and superintendent have made then vote them out in November. Don't punish the students and teachers.

VOTENO

GO POLAR BEARS!

WesTaylor

By your name, we all understand your stance. I have to tell you, my 2 nieces from a school to the west of us are open enrolling, and 4 of my good friends from north of us are as well. They understand that the pros outweigh the cons. I just wish that the people in our own district could see from the outside. WE HAVE A GREAT DISTRICT! Vote yes!

Perkins12345

It is sad that people outside of our district can see how good of a district we are and what a great education we provide but some people in our district can't. Please attend a board meeting or any Perkins event to see what pride an informed voter gains when they know they did the best for the students by voting yes!!!

BetterTomorrow

I wonder what district VOTENO lives in. It just seems that he/she is determined to see Perkins fail. Even with all of these finical issues there are over 500 Open Enrollment students attending Perkins. It must not be that bad of a school district.

Perkins2060

They won't be any longer. I'm loving these pay to play fees! Kids will be flocking to other districts!

Perkins12345

The taxes in other districts are much higher than the taxes in Perkins even after this levy passes. If people move out of the district for higher taxes and average schools then that is their choice. I would rather pay a little more and have my child get an outstanding education that will get them into a good college which will eventually lead to a successful career.

Señor Clown

This is not true, and any amount of time spent comparing homes of similar estimated market value and tax assessment and you will see that they pay nearly the same amount in property taxes. If anything Perkins Township is already HIGHER than many districts in the area for a home of equivalent market estimate and tax assessment. Please stop either deliberately lying to people, or spreading misinformation you heard at the board meeting, as it's apparent you haven't done any research at the area's auditors offices to realize the truth.

I'm Done

Not moving, open-enrolling
