"I am from Mayfield City School District and the Board of Education and Superintendent have not allowed parents to speak at board meetings since last February! Because of the pandemic the meetings went remote last March and they “temporarily” suspended public comments, but now over ONE YEAR (15 months!) later they are still not allowing it. Many parents are aggravated and have asked them to reopen but they have continuously hid behind House Bill 404 which allows remote meetings, but it doesn’t mention anything about suspension of public comments. Considering the current climate of our country and pandemic, it is vital that parents have the opportunity to speak out and let our voices be heard. All our surrounding districts and city councils read emails sent in and out them on public record even if they are remote still. I and other parents have reached out several times and almost never get a response back from the board without another follow up email.
Last week we found out that an 8th grade middle school teacher has been accused of inappropriate relationships with students and paying them for pictures. They are allowing this teacher to resign even though he’s been arrested!"
