Amen, Supporter! It's time to let these short-sighted people hear the truth. And the next in line deserves to be either Todd Scott or Lorenzo Rizzi....both quality individuals.

I am near-sighted, almost the same thing. Next in line? You never really recovered from that concussion did you? Is Todd "next in line" in the same way the asst. food service director was? Because if memory serves me Mr. Scott had the exact opposite view in that case. Next in line, is what the BOE is elected to get right this time around. Not who the present super likes, and certainly not who her current cheerleaders like. The board should closely scrutinize every sinle applicant as if it was the most important thing they have ever decided.

Define "deserve". It doesn't take much to succeed when your job description is "say exactly what you're told to no matter how farcical it sounds." We need someone with enough pride that they won't accept looking and acting the fool just because their boss needs a stooge to deflect some of criticism from herself.

I don't even know ow to respond to moons who thinks Todd Scott or Rizzi would make good supers. They would be more of the same. Dan Baker has been groomed for the roll. He's Diane's pet. Crutchley's ego would cripple the district in lawsuits. We need to look out of the box. This next election will prove to be the most important of all. Who ever is hired needs to clean house from the top to the bottom. Look at credentials not birth certificates. We need o establish a family tree. It would probably take up mst of the city of Arnold.

Just my thoughts. For those not smart enough to get the picture and who want to thank her for putting subpar relatives in positions of teachers, admins. I can only say that your children were screwed over. Dianne didn't do the right things. All our Distinctions about this that and the other don't mean shit if we have kids that aren't learning. The only thing Fox should be offering is an education with qualified people anything less is criminal. The district isn't a dating service, shouldn't have a fry cook that is doomed and shouldn't be a money maker for "the family".

Over the past 10 years as superintendent,Dianne has understood the challenges faced by the Fox School District. She was well-equipped to rise to the challenge and opportunity to make a difference, and she has. The list of administrative, Board and student initiatives that have been successfully accomplished under Dianne's leadership is nothing short of impressive.
As a parent I want to thank you for your vision and service to the Fox School District.
Have a great retirement.
You are no supporter of Dianne! You did not even have the balls enough to state who you were! With friends like you........well ........you know the saying.Could this be the soul mate, or is it Troop, or some administrator? Some butt kisser of some kind for sure..........otherwise you would of stood up!

By the way I know personally that she and her "troop" have never posted or even read a single post on Topix! How do you expect to get your heartfelt message to the one you elevate to the god-like status. You can find her e-mail address at the Fox website and you then you'll have a much better chance of her getting the message, of course she will then know who sent it! A win, win! But the odds are really good she won't reply to you, she generally doesn't!

It’s the first day of filing for possible future board members. I guess we’ll see who wants it. Apparently the quicker you register the higher your name appears on the ballot.

Hopefully, come April, a newer and better board will keep one word in mind. TRANSPARENCY! The board needs to do what they have never done before, and that is make everything at Fox open and above board concerning this school district. It is the job of the BOE to let the taxpayers know exactly what the administration is doing. The newspaper will not do it, the employees can’t do it, and even the “watchdogs” will not be able to insure transparency at the school district. Make no mistake, people will no longer just “shut up”, but without the board doing what only they can do it will never be transparent.

Two months ago I asked the board what they thought about making sure board meetings were taped…audio and video. I also told them that if they did not have the resources I would help in any way that I could. I would provide the time, camera, and whatever money was needed. No reply. I understand there are issues that I do not even understand yet but that is no excuse not to answer my question.

A month ago I sent an email to the board president asking the same question. No reply. Tonight I’ll ask again. Transparency begins and ends with a board of directors. They are the ones that should be proposing these issues. Too much work for them? Boards in the past have been like cattle to this district. They just follow. We must be the prods that they will not be able to ignore until they learn to “follow” those that put them there.

Hope to see Mark Jones at the top of that ballot box!

These petty bureaucrats and their paranoia make me sick.What's the law say about citizen's rights to record what goes on at a school board meeting? And what would happen if someone "accidentally" left their phone on and recording during the meetings? We know what it cost Romney. Maybe it would help 2015 get here a little sooner.

Apparently because of not taking advice to raise the amount if money held for insurance deposits, Dianne and Todd have now cost employees of Fox more money out of pocket for health care.

According to email, Dianne and co didn't make adjustments recommended to sustain current healthcare. Now they are looking at ways to cut and trim things from the employees. Here's my suggestion, start with the over abundance of central office administrators.

Does Diane care about her staff now that she's retiring? Today is a professional day for teachers. Why wasn't this cancelled? All districts around us have cancelled, our teachers lives are important too. I wonder what time Central office staff will come in? I'm sure they will be in later just like this school sectaries if they come in at all. Diane, show your staff that you care about that just as much as all your family and friends that you have hired, some of who aren't even qualified for the jobs they have.

Please don't whine. Normal working adults went into work today. Should all jobs be called off, as well. Grow up and get a life. People like you make me ill. If this is a teacher "shame on you"!

I would say cut back on the admin at CO. all the new Director positions, assistant principal interns... Lots of chiefs. Meanwhile back at the ranch teachers should pay more for insurance and the kids text books are outdated or there isn't enough. And desks. There is a shortage of those too.

The turf fields look good. Seckman had a banner year and I bet Fox did better than them. But not by much. They keep filling teachers positions to get better coaches. Really? That ass backwards.

Sam Ferry is dead on about Dianne. The criticism leveled at him is not jusitfied. She is now on her 3rd "soul mate". Her daughter Amber got married and divorced or annuled very quickly afterward (wonder who paid for that?) Many of her relatives are in positions in the district and we have more assistant superintendents that anyone else in the area. And those who support her wonder WHY there is so much hate towards her. She is a phony who needs to go!
