  1. I just went into the USD 231 School Board Meeting minutes. Much to my dismay the latest minutes were for the meeting of Sept. 13, 2010 – why does it take so long to post minutes. Secondly, if you will review the minutes, you will note there is no detail. Why aren’t the written reports posted so citizens may have the detailed report? Mr. Rayburn states “Hats Off for our committees” and yet the District does not give the citizens details as to the reports given by the committees.

    I have not done my duty by being more involved and looking at this information but even if I had, these minutes tell me NOTHING. Come on, Gilhaus, you need to do better and your doing needs to be done on a more prompt basis.

    I sound like the chronic complainer I am sure but this kind of stuff drives me up a wall. The city of Gardner and this school district I believe have not been doing their jobs and I believe it is because the citizens do not hold them accountable.

    The city of Gardner and the School Board both need to be videotaping ALL of their meetings and putting them on their websites plus promptly posting their minutes with all of the details – that is my opinion.
