    it makes no difference what the cost was...they were going to pass it along....i tried to stop them, but no....that vote was already settled when we got there....it's just too bad that the public is being duped into thinking that this cost is less when we all know that it's not....but hey, i will just write out another check, afterall i have deep pockets....i hope everyone has a great time....i might just show up for that too....

    THIS is WHY Galt needs to vote these dumba..es out, fire the Supt and principal and start a REAL high school...one that is interested in giving ALL of the students an education not just the 9% who qualify to go on to college...yes that IS 9% or in other words only 180 of the more than 2000 students in the District. The county average is 33% and the state 35%...check it out with the CDE.

    Amen Amos!!!! Asinine is about the absolute attribute to this allegory!

    I don't care how much it costs!!!!! The simple answer is start early(5:00PM on a Friday) before the sun goes down! This vote is about as smart as the ones to spend $11 million for a welding shop!!

    This article is inaccurate. The Board was given a quote of $2,830 for busing related to this event. Also, the dangerous precedent is to take graduation away from the community. It loses its meaning, and creates hazards for students and their parents on a night that should be filled with warm memories. Also, it sends the wrong message to the rest of our little community that one school is more "special" than the other. And it wastes public monies that could be better spent on academic needs! Mr. Deis plans to pay for this from General Funds and site Lottery monies. Chairs do not need to be rented! The District already owns chairs and we have a joint facilities use agreement with the City, so we can borrow from the city if needed.
