Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? Regardless of my position it may not be fiscally possible to reopen VES and/or MSES. If it is possible, I would support reopening one if not both schools.

Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? I am not in favor of reopening the schools at this time. Both are excellent schools and I absolutely understand that students have thrived in them; but, because of current and future cuts we will soon experience, we had no other option.

Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why?

Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? No, I would not support reopening either grade school. I am a lifetime member of this community and I have had family members attend Marion Springs so this is a sentimental matter for me but we cannot afford an “emotional” decision we have to start make business and financial decisions.

Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? I would oppose re-opening them at this time, but I would be interested in opening them as soon as the funding would allow. The reason for this is that I believe that education should be kept as local as possible.

Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? In both my upbringing as well as in my business experiences, I was taught you can research, analyze, present and debate all you want before the decision, but once a decision is made and an issue is resolved, you are expected to support and implement the decision.

Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? While I understand the gist of the question, I do believe it is a bit of a trick question. It is easy to understand our current budget position, but we do not know what future reductions there will be.

1. Knowing the current budget position and potential future reductions, would you support or oppose reopening the Vinland and/or Marion Springs schools at this time, and why? It is a moot point. The decision has been made to close these two schools by the current BOE.
