Hydaburg School District

Hang on to your hats, here I go again! I'm very concerned about the school district in Hydaburg. The CEO and his significant other have been hired back for another year at Hydaburg School. Why? Why? Why?

I still say that having a Superintendent would be more beneficial to our school and to our children. Instead of having a high priced CEO and I'm not even sure what his significant other's job title is, but think of the big money they are bringing home every month.

Our classified staff got cut 15 minutes so they wouldn't be eligible for benefits, such as they were. Where did that savings go? There's another person hired to help clean? Hmmmmmm. Our kids are having to be cut back because of all the money going out which is not fair at all. We will be losing more students because the students do not care for the current CEO and his significant other but does the school board care? NO they don't, why are they on the board, why did they run for the school board? It clearly wasn't for the children! If it was they would be taking a hard look at what's going on at our school. When the money is gone, they will be gone and it's our children who will suffer. But again, does the school board care? Again, NO!

There is one person who just recently got on the school board who does care but she is just one vote, one person. I would like to thank her for her care and concern for the children. She ran for the school board for all the right reasons! Thank you for letting me state my concerns!
