  • Many of the students are tutored outside the school-often by the teachers. I am never sure if I am paying $90 a week for actual tutoring or because the teachers feel their salaries aren't enough. We are paying one discharged teacher full salary. He slept with his 17 yr old student which is not illegal. It would be nice if the school system could find a way that the tax payers of this district did not have to reward him for his actions. This school and the district schools are all very poor educationally. Our students do well academically because in our community we can afford to send our children to outside tutors.
