SCHOOL BOARD MEETING PUBLIC
By Charles Edwardson
March 07, 2006
I was told there is a school board meeting on Wednesday the 8th
by a school board member. I appreciate the information. With
all the contentious issues at the school in the past few weeks
I would hope the general public will take an interest in what
is being done to address the issues. I would like to share my
thoughts at the meeting.
One of the most pressing issues to me is the renewal or non-renewal
of the athletic directors position. It was not put on the agenda
for the next regular meeting and I think it is an issue that
needs to be addressed.
I can only assume that since it was not put on the agenda that
the current administration is satisfied with the Athletic directors
performance and this is a none issue to them, or contracts for
public employees are not discussed in public, and input from
the community is not required.
IF you are satisfied with the current program and in the Athletic
department and enjoy participating in the events, agree with
the changes that have been occurring at the high school then
do not say a word. I for one am not, and a lot of people are
complaining under their breath and whispering (there needs to
be a change) but no one is saying these things publicly. I am
tired of people saying "this program stinks, someone should
do something" well no one is. And on March 12th the contract
for the AD is up for renewal and all will be the same as it has
been. So as the saying goes, if you do not vote do not complain.
I am thoroughly disappointed in the way the program has declined
and that is just my opinion. I do not represent any group or
club. And opinions are like "you know what" everyone
has one - I just make mine known more publicly. I do not speak
for anyone, I wish more people would do the same, speak up for
