Torok on PE and all other votes are recorded in the minutes. Mitchner's and all individual votes must be recorded for all school boards.

Torok on PE was a NO for PE exemption (as was Mitchner's) unanimous
candidate More and Kramer are on-the-public-record as YES. Besides the Sports group, there is a Band/Color Guard group that speaks to the Board for a change on this also. (5/28/13)

Torok vote to Close "Young Parent's Program" (as was Mitchner's) unanimous
candidate Bunnett on-the-record as Keep open.

Board votes do matter and board votes are always recorded.

Debbie Torok voted in favor of granting the PE exemption. She was in the minority and the exemption was not adopted. The Young Parents program was never brought to a vote by the Board. Debbie Torok has consistently advocated to support students in the Young Parents program by advocating support so that these students can graduate from high school.

The post by "observer of politics" contains several factual inaccuracies.
