Immediately following the hearing, the Board will convene for a regularly scheduled meeting on or near 7:00 P.M.

    Yes, BFE that should concern everyone except those who think we just don’t pay enough in taxes to support their freebies. The state pays about $10k a year per student. That money should be focused on educating children not paying for the bloated salary and benefits (gas allowance? How about filing a travel voucher for exact reimbursement like normal people)of a bureaucrat.

    No. Our superintendent is dedicated to education in our public schools. Our current governor is intent on destroying them.

    Does it bother anyone that our Governor makes $111,688 and Superintendent Tyree makes $150,000+ ?
