The Limestone County chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is reacting to comments allegedly made by Limestone County Schools Superintendent Tom Sisk. 

According to the NAACP, Sisk recently commented about the scope of the group and what they investigate. Members said those comments were disappointing to hear.

The group continues to call for Sisk's resignation.

"We just want things to get better for our children in this upcoming school year," said NAACP chapter president Wilbert Woodruff. "And with Dr. Sisk at the head it wont get better, because there's a lot of situations within our school system that's not positive for our children."

NAACP members also claim conditions at Tanner High School have deteriorated since principal Louis Gordon was placed on administrative leave.  He was later fired by the school board.
