Levy meeting covers more issues than just M&O funding

Lyle News


The Lyle Gym was crowded Saturday evening with parents, teachers, students, school board members as well as concerned residents. They conducted a concentrated effort to find ways to improve conditions and face issues of the current school curriculum; as well as addressed personal issues that plagued some of those present. County Commissioner Dave Sauter acted as litigator and liaison between the crowd and the school board, keeping the tone as respectful, less personal and as prompt as possible with questions and concerns ranging from discipline of bullying students to the school’s Maintenance and Operation Levy. The consensus was that there is a need for more interaction between the afore-mentioned-peoples by attending, and presenting complaints both verbal and in writing, at official school board meetings to create a legal record of those complaints. The next school board meeting will be on Thursday, March 22, at 7 p.m. at the Lyle High School board room and are open to all community members.
