Schools should work together

November 10, 2013

Bill Treckman, Minot When is it enough? Voters in our area will be asked to approve school bond issues in the near future. That alone isn’t the problem....

Wrong - call Job Corps and they will tell you some of their students earn their high school diploma by attending the alternative school. The school district rents the space from Job Corps. Facts are correct.

No Job Corps owns the Alternative Building as the Alternative is using this building. Sorry you have your facts wrong....

In Minot the alternative high school serves Job Corps students also. And before Minot did away with open enrollment students from surrounding schools attended, too. I have nothing against Class B schools but it seems they are always attacking Class A schools. Shouldn't do that as both have strengths and weaknesses. I taught in a Class B school for 12 years and graduated from a Class A school.

For the past 20+ years the Nedrose and South Prairie have work together with its neighboring schools. The one constant in those 20+ years is the attitude that you can dissolve your district anytime you like and join us. Every 2 years the graded elementary schools have to fight the same attitude at the state legislature, the sad part is that it is the uneducated local representative that tries to close down schools in her own voting district. If larger is better, answer this one question. Why do all of the large school districts in the state have to have "Alternative high schools" to work with troubled kids when the smaller schools are able to give these students the attention needed in a typical class B district?

The aldermen have no say in the school district. So their "sneers" will stay in place with a no vote. The only people who will be hurt by a no vote are the students. South Prairie and Nedrose will not be affected by a no vote. They do not want to join with Minot. Visit with their school boards and suits. yourself.

Vote No and you will force a better answer. You will also remove that dumb snicker from some of the aldermen's faces. They see us as a money supply for their big plans. Vote No and answer them the same way they so often answer us.

South prairie and Nedrose do not want to build a second high school with Minot. It probably would be more cost effective but it will never happen. Minot would be open to it but the other two districts wish to be separate.

so, on. So true....As Minot is growing South, some go to South Prairie instead of Minot Public Schools. This is the solution........In addition, this would get more property tax monies and ease the burden off of those in South Minot who are paying more for valuations/property taxes because of commercial properties in the area........
