  • Hello, my name is Sarah Jenkins and I really think that you should have a way to let people see the students football numbers. I really need to know Homer Carvers football number.
    I need this info. because I wanted to get him something with his football number on it. It is really hard to get his number when you can't find it on your school website.

  • School system is not familiar with Special Ed requirements and is exceptionally difficult to work with in regards to IEPs. As a parent I get the feeling that they intentionally remove "Problem" children from the mainstream seeting just to improve school preformance records.
