Our children need your help. We need to send a message to the Reavis High School Board that we will no longer accept wasteful spending at the expense of our children's education. Please raise your voice with ours to demand that the School Board vote NO to a contract extension for the current superintendent (Dan Riordan). His current contract is set to end in 2016. The Reavis High School Board voted on a contract extension this March 2012 to extend his contract to 2016. Another extension will cost the residents of Burbank 2.5 million dollars. Another extension would erroneous, especially with the current failing AYP results of our students. It is the responsibility of the Superintendent to improve programs and student learning. Our school has decrease AYP scores by 20% in the past two years alone. This superintendent has not shown success for our children and often acts in his own interests and not our children's. In a recent Board meeting Dan Riordan stated, "We made the decision not to introduce any new courses…. Because the budget is tight we would not introduce the new courses" (Dec. 11, 2012). Tight budgets must not only apply to decreasing programs in our children's academics but also to contract extensions for AYP failing superintendents. The School Board members are elected representatives, who are to be our voices. They have not been acting in the best interest of our children, nor are they listening to their constituents.

reavis test scores are going down because the grammar schools are filled with immigrant retards that can barely read,write,add or subtract by 8th grade. this is completely true. if you know a teacher in burbank ask him or her to tell you the HONEST truth about how dumb many of the 8th graders are.
AND these kids are not being flunked because that would keep the schools from getting all the money they are getting. they are just being pushed through the system to high school and then into society where they will be completely unprepared to be productive members of society. sad but true.

BOTTOM LINE. Again, all you gotta do is find a Burbank grammar school teacher that will have the guts to tell you how stupid alot of the 8th graders are.

no sorry dude, the immigrant scum that don't give a crap about learning are the problem. ask any Burbank grammar school teacher. the native white kids are doing fine. for the most part its the immigrants that are retarded and smart off to the teachers and act like savages in the classrooms. THE TRUTH!!!!

I'd bet a dollar to donuts that the The Complete Truth is a troll from Reavis. Most likely Timmy "The Bagman" Smith. Foolish, racist and stupid comments are his m.o. Maybe Little Timmy should do some work for a change to raise test scores at the school instead of blaming the kids. Or better yet, he should do a little work finding a buyer for the 30 acre sight at 5401 S. 65th St, that Reavis purchased last year. I know 2 businesses that are right up his alley- a casino and a strip club.

It's a little rediculous that every post in this thread is racist, ignorant to persons with dosabilities, and hatred for the people that have come from all over the world to give the city of Burbank their hard earned money. Maybe if you, citizens of Burbank would stop segregating each other and actually take the time to meet their neighbors they would find that most of them care about the same values as yourself. As for education how about we as a community actually go to our children's parent teacher conferences or better yet be a part of our children's education at home. There is a reason the teachers send home homework. It's to enable you a chance to be a parent and help your own child learn. As for the the rants about Tim smith I'm sure the site of land that was aquired for reavis Is going to be an improvement for the mind, body, and spirit of the students to come. If you have enough courage to bash the man from the comfort of your own home maybe it's time to muster enough up to make and appointment or attend a meeting and voice your opinions to the public and those that have the power to address the issues. But it seems to me your issue is that your scared the city of Burbank would allow a school to have a strip club or casino on its property I highly doubt our citizens and representatives would allow that so I believe a stronger argument may be needed to be taken seriously. It's pathetic how narrow minded and uneducated members of our community are that they are so disrespectful to use vocabulary like "retards". I have pity for those who can't even respect those with disabilities. It's time to look within and figure out how you can be a constructive part of our community and stop blaming others.

Reavis is run by crooks who are fronted by the beast Smiordan, the conjoined twin thugs Smith (the bagman) and Riordan (the hatchetman). Both are walking whorehouses of deception who would fit right in to Chris Christie's administration. Entitled, arrogant, inept, grandiose sociopaths.

Reavis high school is holding a safety and security procedures meeting on Feb 5th, 2014. Kudos to Reavis on asking the public for their input regarding safety at the school. This is a perfect time for the administration and the board to adopt a safety procedure that school dist 218 has had in place for many years If you call Richards, Eisenhower or Shepard you will be directed to their automated phone service. The very first option is " to report a school related safety issue dial one". I commend 218's attitude toward the safety of students, parents, guests and staff - it's job #1. Adopting this simple and transparent solution can begin a process that can alleviate safety problems that can linger for months or years. Safety first last and always: the students and their parents deserve nothing less. I'm sure the RHS administration feels the same. Thank You

I find it disturbing that some of the comments are so rude. This is poor behavior. Calling children stupid and worse will not solve problems. Thank You
