After being informed they were being misled by disrict administration....to say the least, regarding the facts surrounding the resignation of Mr. Gaddy, Channel 2 expressed a desire and immediate intent to re-investigate this story and "others" surrounding Pam Manning.
I don't know if they were in Cahokia today trying to get a factual story. However, they are VERY interested in hearing from and/or interviewing parents regarding how the distict is handling this situation with Gaddy. Obviously, they'd be happy to hear any other factual concerns/issues.
CONTACT THEM, let them air Manning and her dirty ways all over the news. Email reporter, Jeffrey Bernthal at Jeffrey.Bernthal@tvstl.com. He's working the story....if we give him one.
Keep up the Good Work!

Let's run Manning out of Cahokia the way we ran Bergman out!(OKOK..I know- Bergman went up the hill with Sprague to another taxpayer funded job, maybe Belleville will take Manning, too)

The board thinks she is great and that tells me the board is up to no good.There is not a high school around that would put up with this but since your in Cahokia they let it go by time for a change.

/The salary that is listed for me is actually $11,000 more than I really make. These figures must include our retirement and health benefits. In addition, many of our salaries seem inflated, because we coach, tutor, monitor detention, attend summer workshops, do homebound instruction, are department heads, have master's/doctorate degrees, work on extra committees, have perfect attendance, etc. We won't see a penny of our retirement until we retire, of course. We haven't had a seniority increase in two years, a general raise in two years, or a grad school increase this year. You sound like an involved parent, because you took the time to research the salaries. I assume your child/children are well-behaved and eager to learn. If all parents and students were like you and yours, our job would be easy enough to happily take a reduction in salary. Please be supportive of the teaching and support staff. Our job is more stressful than you can imagine, but I refuse to outline why out of respect for the privacy of my students.

The board STILL likes Dr. Manning? Really? Hopefully the board doesn't let her put one of her "friends" at the high school. We have enough people collecting a salary and doing nothing to help kids. Who are they considering for Mr. Gaddy's job?

I guess I'm one of few that believe the teachers deserve what they get, maybe not all of them but the ones my kids have had, were great and deserve it!

Why do you think the CSOC outperforms the rest of the schools. Yes, the teachers are good but there are other factors. Everyone talks about CSOC and how great it is, but other teachers and schools work just as hard. Anyone want to elaborate as to why their scores are better?

our test scores are better because we care enough about our kids to take the time to put them in a good learning environment, not a gang prison. ie. we have good kids not gangbangers.

I attended the meeting.

Sauget said that 400,000 would be saved by closing CSOC high school, which has approximately 100 students.

I don't see how this $$$ can be correct.

CSOC high school students share district teachers with Cahokia High School. Some of our students are bussed to Cahokia High School for classes, like driver's ed.

Cahokia School of Choice has good test scores.
Cahokia Main High School has terrible test scores.

If you throw our 100 students in with the 1200 Cahokia High School students, they will drown us. Literally drown us. Our scores will go down. Our 100 kids can't make 1200 underachieving students look good.

People call the school board and say "save Cahokia School of Choice high school."

CSOC children do well in school because of a strong work ethic.

CSOC children learn by watching their hard working, dedicated parents WORK.

CSOC parents sacrifice for their children.

CSOC parents support their children in all ways ALWAYS.

we supported buying that building with the understanding it was gonna be k-12. If not for it being k-12 they wouldnt have sold us on the idea of buying it. they had plenty of money to add on to the borad building for the non-teaching jobs, more waste. they need to be out of a job.
