Comments: if the three board members excuse is they share Bolingers vision for the school system. Do we know what the vision is? Is it on paper? Or is it a what ever I deem best vision?

Comments: It's obvious community pressure is not changing a thing with this group. They are still * * * hurt over the referendum defeat. Bolinger gets her big paycheck. Joyce Imel gets to be the power broker she always wanted to be in the school system. Frazier gets power, a big check, and his girlfriend gets Yancys job. They just don't care and they are going to run ruff shot over us until we can we get the majority vote back. The thing which worries me is 200 people run for school board. It splits the vote to the point a person like Joyce Imel can get re elected again and again. These elections have consequences and we as a community have to more savy about the process.

Comments: After Rob Kring got them to move the approval of minutes of last meeting to the action agenda and have a new vote, 4 citizens spoke out against the Yancey move. The room was packed with citizens and overflowing into the hall. A vote was taken and again Imel, Glesing and laCour votes to move Yancey to the Alumni Coordinator position which had the crowd in an uproar. They technically spit in the face of the public.

Comments: There was no mention or agenda item tonite on raising Superintendent Bolinger's salary. We shall see if it raises its ugly head next time.
It was obvious that Imel, Glesing and laCour did not want any comments on the record. All 5 Board members were present and therefore it should have been a meeting since they were taking in information from the public. Board members were scattered at the front of the room and people could come up and talk with them. Of course those conversations were not recorded nor were there any minutes generated by them.
Why is Imel, Glesing, laCour and Bolinger afraid of doing school business on the record? Instead they want to do it behind closed doors. I truly believe if Indiana Code did not require a public vote they'd be smiling ear to ear.
Open, transparent government is non-existent at 2421 Wilson Avenue thanks to Bolinger and her 3 Board members.

Comments: The real problem is not Bolinger. Yes, she is a bimbo but she can only act with the approval of the Three Stooges (AKA school Board).
Imel, Glessing and Lacour are the ones responsible for her antics.

Comments: THE MAIN PART OF AN E MAIL SENT TO THE SUPERINTENDANT AND SCHOOL BOARD MENMERS TODAY. IT IS FLOATING ALL OVER THE SCHOOL SYSTEM... Since you began your position at MCS You have done many things that have been upsetting to the community and therefore the MCHS alumni. You have closed most of our key elementary schools and torn down a good portion of our high school. Yet with all of the money you have wasted the fine arts are dwindling in our schools , the restrooms need repair, and many doors in the high school are missing locks or handles. Instead of tearing things down, why not repair them?
We have several e mails in our possession from you to building maintenance staff stating not only to ignore repairs at E.O. Muncie but that you have told Bill Hensler that you love his ideas to cut E.O. Muncie and Anderson Schools and that you were going to send the idea to Tom Neff. These ideas include but are not limited to, as stated by you in one e mail, “Lets try Gifting the remaining building to the city , and considering selling property in the back for development. That area would be great for patio homes.”
When asked about why the school board should close E. O. Muncie you said that “the building was in disrepair and consumed with black mold. “ You said the same thing when closing Anderson. Why is it that the building is now safe now but was consumed with black mold when it closed? Black mold does not just go away. Now all of a sudden it is safe again? We have had our some of our inside people check E.O. Muncie checked for among other things stability and black mold. Their findings were that E . O. Muncie is not only in excellent structural condition but that black mold was not found anywhere in the building.
As far as the the relocation of Kevin Yancy in concerned, Many of us have known him throughout his life. Some of us have worked with him and others have seen their children or grandchildren flourish while working with him. Mr. Yancy is not only the best principle to walk the halls of MCHS, he is the most celebrated and loved of any principle past or present. He is personally involved with the students. He eats with them , takes time to speak with them, attends school all after functions etc. He walks the halls and makes his presence known in the building. He works well with faculty and staff. So our question is, why would you want to remove him from his position? Many people including news media has asked you this question but like every politician you sidestep the answer. The problem is that you did not offer him a position. You demanded he take it . It was either that or the door. If you are so concerned about our students you would have given him a choice. Instead, you went as far as advertising his position. As far as we are concerned this is a very low thing to do.
Here is where the alumni stand with these issues. You have overstepped your authority. You need to remember that you work for the community ! We have started a petition to have you removed from your position. So far, nobody has turned us down. It seems that your reputation has proceeded you. We are working on an injunction to stop the sale of the E.O. Muncie school property. You need to know that we will not be giving money to your version of our school. Yes! It is our school. Not yours! We want to make this very clear for you. Unless you leave E.O. Muncie open and Unless you reinstate Mr. Yancy as principle and leave him alone to do his job, The alumni association have reached out to all alumni requesting that no donations be made to MCS as long as Mr. Yancy does not have a his principle job. In other words, the fake position you have created for him will be fruitless. There are many who have their family names on Scholarships and funds that are considering moving them to Southwestern.
So before you go to the board meeting tonight, you better think carefully about what you have to say to the citizens of our city. If it is not we want, we will be doing our best to see that you are removed from your position immediately!

Comments: Hmmm..I don't know if they advertised it..I assume they did since they posted the Alumni position before they had even created it.
I have done a document request for the Schutte contract and also her job description which I was told would take up to 30 days. . The position paid $58,595.86 last year.
