I heard he was taking trips that weren't approved by the board. Also heard he was allowing underage drinking at his house. His wife should probably pick up some extra shifts at Buckle!

Do any of you actually even know the superintendent? Take a look at the schools and see what he had done in the last five years. We have new buildings, a great track behind the high school and fantastic improvements in curriculum. Maybe his family is a bit over the top but do any of you want your job performance to be judged by your families activities?

He did NOT give us the track are the new buildings, US tax payers did that! He would walk right by you and not even care you pay his check. I agree with Actual school employee. The Assistant Superintendent has been doing his job for a long time, it is time she gets the credit she deserves. He has made some really BIG mistakes and she would have to fix them cause he DID NOT CARE! He thought he was untouchable, To big for anyone to mess with. Good ridance to him! Let a real person in there who cares, the Assistant Superintendent, and she is down to earth, not better then everyone else.

Please someone tell the school board to bring back Terry Nobles. That man knew how to run a district. He also showed a lot of respect to his staff. What a class act Mr. Nobles is. Andy J. should have taken a page from Mr. Nobles book on how to run a district. Take your fake personality Andy J. and move on.

Leave the man alone do any of you even know what he did ? no one seems to say Hum ? well I would quit judging him you dont even know him all I can say is at least he was allways around when needed he was allways fair when dealing with issues and if he was wrong he would admit it , His family should not even be a part of this that is his personal life and last I checked no one had the perfect family ! I Think he did a fine job better than others so lets wait and see what he did and stop spreading rumors about him and his family !!!!
still wondering

No one ever answered the question why he was suspended. And how the hell is getting paid while suspended a punishment?!!! And I know for a fact he walks on by ppl all arrogant n snooty. His daughter walks thru the halls like her sh** don't stink.

How small minded of people to comment on his kids and his wife. Take a good look around at the other kids and what they're wearing to school and what they're doing (with their parents knowledge). I've never seen so many formal dresses that required a hair net (and I'm not talking about one that goes on the head). Nobody in that town has a right to talk about anybody else's kids. Look in your own back yard. It's all the "townies" and "clicks" that get together and diss everybody. This town is a joke and a bigger joke is Bob Thompson. He needs to be sent packing along with a couple other "employees", but he's in the click so that will never happen. Grow up people.

Maybe he thought he could get away with anything he wanted like the faculty that was born raised and now working at the school.

bullied

aja bullied a lot of the staff and substitutes as well the ladies in the admin office. He barged in on meetings that were none of his business. He played one staff member against another and recruited some of them to even spy on others. He spent district money (over $1,000.00) without consulting the board for approval. He removed items out of the schools contract with the teachers that he thought didn't need to be in there, again without approval. He made comments to staff that if he was ever questioned about things he would deny ever having that conversation. He is manipulative, mean, and a bully and believe me I know first hand. I'm glad that the administration of athena and vineland finally started talking to each other and found out exactly what this man has been doing to keep conflict going.I am also glad that the assistant superintendent finally got tired of being bullied and joined in to get rid of this monster. Remember it is much better to be a leader than a puppet. And finally THANK YOU John Freeman for always seeing through this man. This is fact and I hope this answers a lot of questions. There is more that will eventually come out once some of the staff doesn't have to feel threatened. Board members, please keep listening to the staff and talk with previous employees that can explain exactly what their experience was with this man and why they are no longer employed. Many were "let go" under lies created by this man. Continue to investigate. Bring back the good ones and let go of aja cronies.

Andy J took repsonsibility for a lot of things that OTHERS accomplished and did not take responsibility for his mistakes. He only cared about himself & his image. In a quick 5 years he was instrumental in taking the district back to pre-Noble days regarding morale. The school board became complacent, choosing to ignore certain situations when brought to their attention. Now the Board is taking action. I only hope it is not too late and will not put the district in financial jeopardy. Does his contract specify his duties? If not maybe he will be better at cutting grass and cleaning toilets than guiding a school district.

ALL of this IS true and more will come out as the process takes place! Board members, this is your time to correct an error that took place 5 years ago.

Yes, he will take credit for these things but there are a LOT of other people who actually made it happen!
