Lee Cox 2 months ago on School district to test emergency system

Too bad the print version says this will happen on Thursday, "...a day on which students will not be in school."


Lee Cox 2 months, 4 weeks ago on English, math assessment scores released

"South Routt’s math scores worsened at the sixth- and seventh-grade level, however, and remained flat in third grade." False - Last year's sixth graders were fifth graders the previous year, and the scores went up a little. Last year's seventh graders were sixth graders the previous year, and theior scores were flast. Last year's third graders had nat taken the test before, so you can't compare them to anything. It is statistically unsound to compare one year's grade to the previous year's same grade. It IS sound to compare the same students year to year.


Lee Cox 5 months ago on School board approves raise, contract extension for Superintendent Meeks

Strange how Meeks describes a "shortfall" to his budget, when the Ed fund Board told him that the money for all day kindergarten for 2015-16 was a one time shot, and that he needed to find additional funding for it in the future. He did not find the continuiing funding, and then whined that he had to cut his budget by the amount that the Ed Fund Board had given him.


Lee Cox 5 months ago on Weed whackers launch campaign against chemicals

First - the herbicide is called "2,4-D"; not "too,4-D". Second - this works fine for houndstoungue, but not for thistle. Good luck trying to get rid of an entire root of a thistle.


Lee Cox 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Colorado Master Gardeners: Managing whitetop

I have witnessed whitetop on many properties around Steamboat. Be a good neighbor and PLEASE take care of this weed, so I don't have to keep taking care of it when it spreads to my property.


Lee Cox 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Steamboat schools will charge $600 for all-day kindergarten this fall

Gee, Meeks was tasked with finding different funding for all day Kindergarten after he was given the money for 2015-16 by the Ed Fund Board. Too bad he did not do his job.
