PANAMA CITY - The love for ..., 17 June 2012 [cached]
PANAMA CITY - The love for a school system and its children has motivated School Board member Jerry Register to run for the District 1 seat again.
"If we don't have the children to work for on their behalf, we wouldn't be needed," Register said. "By being honest and above board, you will do what's best for the kids. I believe they come first in every decision, that's how I vote."
He said the district has faced continual budget decreases and he knows that will continue to be an issue, but he's ready for it.
"I want to continue being very fair and do what we have to to teach children and get the most for our money," Register said. "I see it as a chal-lenge, but I like it."
He said his experience in the school system is what allows him to face those issues. Register said he spent 17 years teaching and 13 in administra-tion.
"With my experience as a teacher and administrator I can confront problems that face the district every day; I feel I am a hands-on School Board member," Register said. "I go to every school every semester; I have a mentor every year with the Bay Education Foundation. I try to go to as many sports and fine arts presentations as I can."
Register may be focused on doing everything he can to help the students in the district, but that doesn't mean he forgets about the teachers.
"I give $5,000 of my salary to teachers every year; 50 teachers get $100 each to spend at Ms. Mary's in Lynn Haven to spend for their classroom," Register said. "Everyone's name goes in a barrel and we pull out 50."
Two of the issues in discussion lately have been privatization and FCAT scoring. Register said for the privatization issue, he ensures he knows what is going on with both sides of the discussion.
"With the privatization issue, I have met with both sides and will continue to do so; I keep up with the materials and will keep doing that too," Register said. "We have great workers in our district and I appreciate them."
He said there is a lot of tension concerning the FCAT and he believes the situation needs review.
"We need a valid assessment tool and I was a fan of the FCAT in the beginning," Register said. "The test has gotten larger and larger and it's get-ting more bureaucratic. I think the test may have outlived its usefulness, but we still need a measuring tool for education."
Above all, Register said serving the Bay County school district has been a joy.
"I really feel that we have some of the best teachers and support people in the world in our district," Register said.
We have to take care of ..., 13 Sept 2012 [cached]
We have to take care of our kids the best we can and the portable situation is just not best for them," said Bay County School Board Member Jerry Register.
Register has perhaps been the most outspoken on the issue.
"In bad weather, suddenly we move the children and teaching and learning ceases. We've had problems in the past with mold. We've had problems with leaking," said Register.
Register said he hopes the district will have completely phased out portables within the next five years.
Board Member Jerry Register ..., 25 Mar 2009 [cached]
Board Member Jerry Register is the only one who voted against drawing up the lease. "I'm just thinking how much that building cost us, or cost the board. Of course it was negotiated before me. I'm just concerned it is not enough money," said Jerry Register, Bay Co. School Board Member.
