Heuer does not work two days a week, thats a rumor. No I'm not defending him at all, but I have interviewed our district treasurer and assured me that the guy does work more than two days a week. Drive by the offices and look for yourself and I'm sure you'll see his car, unless he's away on school official business.

Heuer said we COULD be not WILL be in the red, I can read perfectly fine. Nor do I need to thank the teachers for reelcting the same people, why would they reelect people most cant stand. Plus how many teachers are there versus community members in Austintown? You make NO SENSE!!I'm glad to be young and naive. My studies are none of your concern or business, worry about your own children (GOD BLESS THEM).

dmets, If you have a problem RUN FOR THE BOARD!! Lets see how good you can do.

AtownParent are you Ms. Kliner? I think not, so before you want to say the levy wont keep the district out the red, just stay quiet!!All of you complain like theres no tomorrow and YET you relect the SAME people that have been on the board for years. None of you have a right to complain AT ALL. You could have made change when Ritchie was up and Creator left but you didnt, and I doubt any of you ran that election year either.And the truth, ummm yeah I know my facts, and your NOT my parent (THANK THE LORD) so dont you even dare tell me "GO BACK TO SCHOOL", oh yeah and what is it you do?

WOW. All of you are really sad. Im ashamed to say I share the same community as you, ESPECIALLY you AtownParent.

Metz87, I am fully aware of the VT shooting. The reasin I feel safe is due to Fitch having police in the school from start to end. At AMS Im not sure and the other elementary schools, but our force is good at what they do and would get there in a timely matter. On the turf issue I'll research it. Its not that I believe the board on every decision or statement they make, its I have faith in them. Now yeah I dodn't like every one of them, but I dodnt bash them on Vindy.com, its so tacky.dmets, ARE YOU SERIOUS WITH THIS STATEMENT?!?!?!: If they received a half millon dollars in donantion for the turf. Then I see the school having no problem in getting enough donantions to pull them out of the hole.I dodnt think I need to say more. WOW.

The board made a great choice on putting the levy back on the May ballot. I have full confidence that the community now knows whats at stake if we were to go under with another failed levy, and for the negative people on here which I know are coming, its time for you to take your hatered and dislikement aside and support the children in YOUR district.

I am ONE person so do NOT compare me as the EXAMPLE for ALL Austintown Local School students. We have amazing students here that do amazing things, including myself. My anger comes from the stuff you say on here, thinking you know the ends and outs of this school district when you have NO IDEA!! metz87, the teachers took a 1% raise last year, and no raise this year, also they pay more on their health insurance. What more do you want? and the astroturf was funded by the Falcon Forward commitee NOT with the tax dollars. Get your facts.The last thing this school district needs is another failed levy on the March ballot. Your complains need not be made on VINDY.COM but at THE BOARD MEETINGS.ATownParent, you cant control what a student can wear, that is up to THEIR PARENTS. If they cant do their job well dodnt blam the principals. Now I will say there are some teachers and principals that let students get off but in all they do a good job.Honestly I feel safe here at Fitch, and when I visit AMS I do also. The weapon histeria at AMS was unfortunate but its going to happen when you have parents that cant do their job.

DirtyDozen I'm NOT a teacher, I'm a STUDENT, GET IT RIGHT or SHUT UP. Those 12 teachers who have students here should have the right to bring them here if they want AUSTINTOWN IS NOT THE ONLY SCHOOL THAT DOES THIS.dmets YES YOU DO NEED TO SHUT UP, you have no clue of the facts you're going by your loser @$$ friends and family. This school district HAS cut the fat 8 MILLION DOLLARS OF IT. SO STFU!!

First off AtownParent you didn't READ!! and if you did God Bless. The BOE is not cutting busing nor extracurricular's, the STATE will. Open enrollment would be the worst thing to happen to this district, I a student at Fitch, attends a pretty crowded school so I have no idea how we would fit anymore students in this school. If you're not happy then you need to bring your butt and as well for you OldManGrump and demets to a school board meeting. OldManGrump do us a favor and go to the nursing home!! No one wants your 19th century ideas.dmets you're almost on the right track, Im in complete agreence that Heuer should GET OUT immediately, if anything hes one of the reasons the levy didnt pass. As for teachers, I have yet to find one teacher that lounges around and babysit. ALL OF YOU NEGATIVE SOBs need to take your heads out of your @$$ and take your problems to the BOE NOT THE STUDENTS who in the end will suffer!!
