The d+c list the salary as $198,000 with a stipulation to eliminate schools of choice and open enrollment within one year.

Love the salary given the environment we are in these days. Hope there is an incentive related to student performance.

To 7:30AM ~~ Please have another cup of coffee and reread the article. There is no such stipulation. Our BOE couldn't decide to do something that significant if they had to.

Maybe being superintendent of somewhere was better than being superintendent of a dissolved school district?

They are looking to merge with the Barker school district. So we had to find someone who wanted to be our superintendent that was in a position that would be gone in a year possibly.

To 8:53 & 8:59AM ~~ Thank you!

Throughout history
There've been many songs written about the eternal triangle
This next one tells the story of a Mr Boiley, Unions
And a condemned District named Greece Central...
When the sun rises tomorrow, Greece Central... must Die....

Hang down your head, Greece Central
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Greece Central
Poor schools, are bound to die

First the school went Union
Then the busses too
Kids got left for stupid
So the jocks could have more toys

Hang down your head, Greece Central
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Greece Central
Poor schools, are bound to die

By this time next school year
Reckon where youu'll be
Hadn't a-been for Boiley
You'd a-had a PHD.

Hang down your head, Tax payers
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Greece Central
Poor schools, you're bound to die

Hang down your head, Greece Central
Hang down your head and cry
Hang down your head, Greece Central
Poor school boy, bound to die

By this time next July
Reckon where I'll be
Down in some Welfare office
My ass be up a tree.
Hang down your head Tax payer
You still supporting me

Shure enough. Ole Frank knows what he's talking about he does.

Let me think, what's in Lyndonville? A few bars, some fruit trees and a bunch of cows along with a small school district of under 700 kids. That right there is the kind of experience it takes to clamp a lid on Greece Central.

Sounds like Babs shoveled her first load of barn fresh cowdroppings right square at the Bored Bunch and they just loved the flavor and texture. Just wait till she finds a rabbit breeder and makes the Board some of her famous chocolate chip cookies.

The people running Greece Central belong in a brain injury rehab facility.
