I am dissappointed by the choices the school board is making. I have been disappointed since last year when I was told the school would not participate with exchange student programs. I want my child to experience people from other cultures and exchange students provide a positive experience and education of life in other countries however Montgomery refused to allow me to enroll an exchange student. Our children will miss that experience.

This school board isn't only making bad decisions when it comes to sports. This year they started having all kids...K-12 riding the same bus together in the morning but sending the elementary kids home before the high school so, now parents that had older children watching their younger children until parents got home from work had to find alternate care for their younger children. They said this was to save money but because of this they had to purchase a brand new bus and put all new video equipment on all buses so tell me how spending almost $100,000 is saving money not to mention the buses are packed full in the mornings which is not safe. This school board and the superintendant does not listen or care about what the parents or community have to say. They do what they want without reguard to the people who pay their salaries.

As a Montgomery graduate the things happening there make me incredibly sad. It appears as if the school board is allowing themselves to be manipulated by a few parents. The coaches that have been forced out of Montgomery truly care about their athletes and want them to succeed. It's so sad to see people who genuinely care about their athletes forced out for not playing by the school board/parents loosely defined "rules" These same rules allowed a coach who's still at the school to know and ENCOURAGE three of his athletes to beat a ground hog to death with a large stick while at a varsity practice. While this isn't sick enough a coach then provided a knife to these boys who cut the tail off the animal and hung it in their dug out for good luck! And afterward posting pictures of them posing with the dead animal on social media sites. Where do you even begin with how wrong this situation was!?? And now this man coaches a second sport. Way to go Montgomery School Board!

Amen, Mr. Hill. All communities have their problems with "athletics" and making the right decisions but unfortunately, your school district can't seem to use common sense and set a good example of leadership for its student athletes. The football fiasco last year caused how many athletes to change schools? And now they have once again caused an uproar and divided the girls. It seems that those with power either have no clue how to lead or they just love being in the headlines. Either way, it is the students who suffer.
