This sure doesn't look good for the school district. Trying to pass a bond while your Superintendent is interviewting elsewhere is not an easy task.
Well said sir. It's people like you who make this a great community!
You sir, are an idiot. Plain and simple.
You're correct. But I believe that this wasn't conveyed by the district during the last bond. It seemed that they were pushing the overcrowding issue and the need for bigger classrooms. Whether you like it or not, this is going to be on the front of the minds of the voters during this bond also.
I think the realistic number is closer to 350. I believe the yearly average of CP students attending Wa Hi is just south of 400.
I agree that a lot of voters don't quite understand the scope of what Wa Hi does and how large it is. I also don't think enough tax payers have invested the time to go tour the facilities at Wa Hi and see how dilapidated they truly are.
With that being said, I still belive that most voters are not comfortable with the uncertainty surrounding how many kids wll be loist from Wa Hi to CP High School. I think this will be the biggest hurdle for this bond to overcome.
Very well said kurtfr. It's an investment in the future of our community and town. That's what it comes down to.
I would encourage everyone to go take a tour of the Wa Hi facilities, mainly the science building. It is an absolutely travesty that students in this day and age have to learn in an environment like that. I beg you, before you vote, go take a facility tour.
I am investing in the future of my children and our community by voting yes for this bond.
I can definately tell a difference between different snows. It's not really scientific on my part, but this snow seemed much lighter than the previous large snow storm we had. When shoveling, the prior snowstorm (4-5 years ago??) was much heavier to shovel. It just seemed to have more moisture in it.
Again, this is all theory. These may all be great in NY City, but not WW. We have how many major corporations here? Key Tech and Nelson Irrigation? A majority of our commerce is found through small busiess. What will these smaller guys do with a higher minimum wage? They will lay people off and work harder themselves. It's common sense. Again, on a massive corporate level, all of your points may hold true. Not in our little corner of the world though.
