Listed below are notes from the September 8th Leon County School Board meeting.
During the Leon County School Board meeting on Tuesday night, the Board approved the final estimated budget for Leon County Schools for the 2021-2022 school year. The report to the Board was to explain the closing of the budget from the last school year, as they move into the new budget.
Assistant Superintendent Dr. Alan Cox reported that 70% of Leon County School employees with CHP insurance, about 67% of total employees, have been vaccinated at this time, they believe that is close to seven out of every ten employees.
Vice-Chair Darryl Jones suggested reestablishing temperature checks for children as a possible COVID protocol. However, Dr. Cox responded that the CDC has said temperature checking is no longer effective, but they can reestablish the action if the Board desires to.
Superintendent Rocky Hanna stated as of Tuesday there has been 714 students who have tested positive for COVID in Leon County Schools. In grades K-8 there are currently 189 students who have had completed opt out forms.
Board member Chair Joy Bowen requested looking into hiring additional help to supervise students, K-8, during the lunch hour to help keep students stay distanced.
Vice-Chair Darryl Jones noted that for parents who are concerned about sending their child to brick and mortar school, there is an option for them to utilize Leon County Virtual School, which has recently been optimized for students grades K-12. There are currently 776 students enrolled in Leon County Virtual School and the enrollment is still available for students.
After the comments by the public regarding the mask mandate during the meeting, Bowen thanked all of those who made remarks throughout the evening, she then stated, “we’ve been talked to, we’ve been talked about, we’ve been preached to, we’ve been threatened, we have been commended, we have been heard, and we are still in this together.” She emphasized the Board is “not trying to become the parents of the children,” they just want to be “the best elected officials that we can be,” and keep the children safe.
Lastly, Board member Rosanne Wood reiterated her suggestion for the Board to fund a vaccine campaign touting the benefits of getting the vaccine. In response to her request, Hanna stated the wellness funds that were previously mentioned for possible utilization for the campaign, is in fact used for wellness programs throughout Leon County Schools, and he is reluctant to use the funds in this instance.
Though much legal bru-ha-ha is manufactured out of the mother-superior 14th, I feel this one is pretty clear https://constitution.congress.gov/constitution/amendment-13/
Given this filthy, child abusing, corrupt, garbage Capital District is 70% or more filled with sociopathic, psychotic Branch Covidian Cultists of Covidstan, the Scruel Kommissars probably do represent the majority opinion. It’s inherent in a Cult to think this uniformly. Their abject lack and inability to critically think and their level of invincible ignorance is a sight to behold.
“…reported that 70% of Leon County School employees with CHP insurance, about 67% of total employees, have been vaccinated at this time, they believe that is close to seven out of every ten employees.”
Really? They ‘believe’ it is close to 7/10 employees, as in they’re not sure? This is 5th grade math, folks. Maybe it is time for “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? – School Board Edition”. Mr. Foxworthy, please help us bring some comedy to this tragedy.
” looking into hiring additional help to supervise students, K-8, during the lunch hour to help keep students stay distanced.”
WHAT? Back when I was in School, the TEACHERS ate with us and controlled the Students. No need to HIRE any one to do that.
“However, Dr. Cox responded that the CDC has said temperature checking is no longer effective, but they can reestablish the action if the Board desires to.”
…sooooooo… Science and the CDC do not really matter… its all about what the alt-left wingnuts “desire”.
… got it…
RECALL THEM ALL!
I agree Hope. Wood says they (the LCSB) are educators but she is confused about what type of education. The whole Board needs to revisit their job descriptions.
They should be coming up with creative ways to teach reading, writing and arithmetic to the 50% of students lagging behind their peers. Maybe they should offer prizes to incentivize these children to succeed at their school work. Maybe they should hire additional help to tutor students who are struggling with their school work. They should do what they would do for their own children if their own children were not performing at grade level.
Woods would be much better suited to the position of President of your homeowners association. Imagine your joy upon waking up early Saturday morning to President Woods out in your yard with a tape measure in her hand preaching to you about how you are in serious violation of the rules by allowing your grass to grow 1/4 inch higher then the HOA rules. And of course handing you a fifty dollar fine.
Next weekend: Knock Knock Knock!!! “Dont answer the door honey its that evil witch President Woods again.
Next weekend and every subsequent weekend:
Knock Knock Knock yeah President Woods again, and again, and again…
Would someone please brief Wood that she is not a doctor, the vaccine czar, nor the mask police.
She has completely lost sight of her job description and given herself empowerment that is totally inappropriate, illegal, and dangerous to the public at large… Especially our children.
She does something weekly that is so egregious that she should resign. The public should be concerned. She has stepped way out of bounds.
The vaccine does not stop the spread of COVID nor does it decrease the potency of the virus. It only protects the person who got the jab. Period.
In all seriousness, Woods needs to be stopped. She wants to incentivize the use of an experimental drug (keep telling yourself its approved) on the very children she is responsible for educating. This is madness! We DON’T know the long-term effects of the vaccines. No one does! They’re not even a year old yet!
To use innocent children as guinea pigs is sickening! If this is passed, I trust Woods will not receive immunity from future legal action. I cannot believe we’re thinking of offering Amazon and Starbucks gift cards in exchange for a child’s role in the world’s largest human drug trial. This cannot be America.
