I guess you misunderstand. The board backs this behavior. Our only recourse is to defund the district and merge with one that has sensible monetary practices. I see the signs already spreading that defeated the school levy in the area. What happened to all that shale money the school has? We are tired of looking at our property tax bills getting hit twice to fund deceivers. No trust, no money.

They have maintained the building...it's still standing and safe, isn't it? It's badly outdated and not up to serving the 21st century needs of the students, but it's not some dilapidated structure and far from a "money pit." And what district to you propose merging with? Look around you...United is not in a position where they should be looking into taking on the problems of any neighboring districts. That's an asinine notion.

Merge with another district and lose the money pit.

They didn't maintain the one they have. Don't you read this newspaper? How long would you give your adult child money to improve their life when the spend it on things opposite of your reasons for giving it? They spend money on internet and sending the principal to China so they can bring back communist ideals to our children. They didn't fix the roof or update the electric. Do any people of your group read this paper or just hold your hands out for others' money to try to fix stupid?

That has to be one of the stupidest reasons to not vote for a levy. United has been one of the BEST schools in the county for YEARS in managing funds...just look around you at other schools in the red! So much so that they are still operating on a levy that was passed almost 30 years ago! It's $10 a month, we need to maintain this building since the voters won't allow a new one. You either pay for a new building or pay to maintain the old one, the maintenance fairy isn't going to show up!

This school has a track record in print of deceiving the people to get a new school. They have lost the support of the locals as shown by the embarrassing defeats of the new school has shown.

The school has admitted in print they did not maintain the school because they wanted the new one. Why should the people have confidence that decision has been reversed. I won't vote for more money when they neglect the children purposely.
