Missouri-Stipend Scandal.jpg
The St. Joseph School District, the 16th-largest school district in Missouri, has been plagued by a stipend scandal. Ballotpedia first exposed the depth of corruption over a year ago, and provided thorough coverage as the story unraveled.

Watch the video below for an in-depth run-down on the St. Joseph School District scandal.

Brittany Clingen reports on the scandal in the St. Joseph School District.

-- 16:00, 16 August 2013 (CDT) Hi Schulzktsd15,

Thank you for your edits to the Tomahawk School District, Wisconsin page. Unfortunately, I had to revert your edits because some of the information you provided did not contain references. In the "Introduction" section and "Leadership/ School board" section, there was information added without a reference to where the information came from. If you could add the information with the proper citations, that would be much appreciated. Thank you! SamanthaS 13:41, 18 November 2013 (CST)

Hi Samantha,

So how do I revert your revert when I come up with the data that was missing, cause this was the next thing I was to add. Just had time to put in what I did. And if you look at,_Wisconsin they don’t reference where they got their data...

Hi! I don't use such commas myself, but that was a direct quote taken from their own website. In such cases, I leave their spelling, grammar and punctuation as is.

I meant to thank you for creating the Talk pages for the new articles. After I saw that, I took care of it for the new article I created yesterday, and will do that in future.

Thank you. That was a much gentler way of putting someone's passing away.

Thanks for contacting me regarding the Stamper page, Samantha, and I apologize for the error.

Please know that I am composer of some (but not all) of that information from Wikipedia. If you look in that Wikipedia page's editing history, you'll see what I contributed.

May I repost the information, but in new composition?

Also, please note that removal was made of the original, non-Wiki info I posted, too. Do I get to repost that info (i.e., place of birth), or can such particular edits be reversed?
