Noticed this item in Bob Rolfe's Insider column a few days ago.
Bob got an email from Stoner Horey that said, "It is beginning to appear that no 'one' school option is acceptable to 50 percent of voters. If that is so, then the all-or-nothing-approach will lack sufficient support for any one of the options to gain a majority.
Would it be feasible to offer multiple choices and allow voters to select the top two or three options they find most acceptable? Perhaps this approach could produce an acceptable but not necessarily the favorite solution that an individual voter might prefer."

Already there's rumors flying around that the school facilities plan will probably be voted down. (I just caught a news item on MSNBC from a fellow named Ark, from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. He said, "We do a good job on educating the top 10% of students, but fail miserably with the other 90%. Bill Gates is going to make an announcement sometime today stating that our public school system is in serious trouble.) I'll post his comments as soon as they go up on the internet.

Which brings me back to the upcoming vote on the facilities plan. I'm not sure many of you know just how broken down the public school system is. I really want to hear your opinions on this subject.

The Corning-Painted Post School District instituted "late buses" years ago specifically for kids participating in sports and to help rural parents who had to travel back and forth to pick kids up after practice.
I admit when I recently learned that the late bus didn't run late enough for kids in sports,, I wondered what the point of having a "sorta late bus" was. This is a very good question and should be looked into. I'll call around today and get some answers for you.
Also, if any one out there can add any information to this inquiry please leave a comment. I am very interested in why the late bus run does not service kids in sports---- the very reason it was created to begin with.

I spoke with the Corning-Painted Post bus garage about the late bus issue. They are sending me information on the bus schedules as it exist now. I'll probably receive the info tomorrow.

They're going to get back to me about what the process would be to change policy.

I'm sure there's other rural parents who would be interested in getting a late bus run instituted for kids who are in sports. I'm certain it would take a fairly organized group of parents to facilitate a policy change if it's even possible.

Any parents with kids in sports from surrounding rural towns i.e Caton, Hornby, interested in a policy change should contact other parents for feedback on the issue.

I'll post any information I receive to keep you updated.

Aren't you curious as to why all the deleted comments from Sallyann?

Update on late bus issue: The Corning-Painted Post District bus garage was going to send me the "Student Handbook" that published information on late buses. That was several days ago, and I still haven't received it.
