Alternative school may stay open next year

  • Follow Latest News

Bungalow Road Alternative School might remain open for the 2009-10 school year.

The Richmond County school board had voted to move the students housed at the facility to a new Tubman Education Center.

A committee of board members voted this afternoon to hold off on the move until renovations are complete at Tubman. The move would allow renovations to be completed faster.

If they couldn't make it in the regular school why used taxpayers' money to housed them in a place they really do not want to be.

They do love to be there,

They do love to be there, because alternative school is not like regular school where they are actually held accountable for doing something. They get to "Play" with all of their other thug friends!!!

Maybe some extra tough

Maybe some extra tough schooling would have helped in the grammar dept, haha. Past tense on used and housed is not correct. I really don't see why you would even comment on this. Btw, Thompson is in Mcduffie County so maybe you should leave such comments about your schools.

teachers pay cut, central

teachers pay cut, central office staff furloughed and a raise for the new human resource manager. Let's not forget the two new positions at Central office: Mr. Spires moved to grants manager and vacant controller position to be field at $120,000. A coordinators position cut, when there was never a coordinator in that position in the first place, then create a coordinators position to oversee instruction coaches. Now new remodeling of the Tubman facility for the new alternative programs. More money allocated for outsourcing. Did I miss anything? Oh yea the new position for the executive director for student programs. Take a look at the board agenda and decision at www.rcboe.org. My question is the county in financial crisis? I really would like to know what the priorities are for this school district.
