Arienziak & Lau side show. Wait until next month. Wholesale throat cutting. To reduce cash deficit of School District, these 2 have a master plan of cutting between 10 to 15%. maybe more, of staff through out district. That means it's going to be tougher on Principals and Teachers to educate the kids. Bi-lingual teachers known as Para-pros will take the hits as well as older teaching staff members. Cheaper to pay fresh out of school teachers and younger para-pros then to pay veteran & senior staff. Forced retirement is what I've heard. They'll skip out on paying Health benefits to the forcibly retired as they will want to do. Diabolical.

The letter to parents was released yesterday yet this situation happened in March. The district is dysfunctional, the teachers are miserable and the kids are suffering.

I can tell you unequivocally that nothing good is coming from CCSD130. Superintendent is a serious bully who for some reason has even the board afraid to challenge him. If you challenge, question or in any way indicate disagreement he will target you like a hunter targets a deer. He is no leader but rather a tyrant. He talks bad about staff to other staff, he mocks people openly to his staff and has no business being in his big office. He goes out of the country for "confrences" that have nothing to do with US school management. He brings in his buddies who allow inappropriate behavior by school staff go on their watch and those buddies still dont change the poor performance of the schools they were put in charge of. He makes nearly $200k for what? Not a damn thing. If you dont believe, ask. Ask your teahers, secretaries, principals and they will tell you. Ask those who do the REAL work.

If anyone cares, Freedom if Information act the finances - Lauk has burned through over 8 million in funds the district has put away in "surplus"... now they've gotta cut a ton of money. They keep blaming it on the state owing money

Is it true that many teachers and Bi-Lingual teachers are waiting for the axe to drop at the end of this school term? Is it true that will force older teachers and Bi-linguals out by forced retirement?

130 is provided with huge sums of money and offers little or nothing for the students and the community they should be serving.

this school year should be something for the record books. Teacher pregnant by a student, no money for books, supplies, teachers. What did happen to that $8 million? Why don't parents ask? Why don't tax payers demand answers?I guess you get what you vote for. There are serious problems but I guess no one cares.

What teacher is pregnant by a student? Why didn't I hear of this before?
You are right, people just don't care, look at how many don't vote.

Focus on helping the children NOT the teacher. Teachers are there to do their job. If they can ask them to move on. When speaking of District 130; talk about what need to be done for the students. Everyone, knows who are the good teachers. Having a disfunctional administration and disfunctional teachers is a job of the school boar to correct the issue. If you really care go and see how you can help the community. Stop complaining and star doing.

The teachers that are dedicated and doing their job are NOT miserable. The students with parent support are doing fine. Yes, there are bad teachers, bad administrators, etc, etc, etc. So what is new? It is easy to be miserable if you don't like to work or do your obligations.

The district 130 family will be back on target once they get rid of Lauk and Arendiaz. The district has been on the downward for the last 5 years. Nothing positive has been done for the last 5 years. Get Mr. Gmazel deserves and should be the next superintendent. District 130 deserves a home grown person in that position.
What do you expect

Keep paying your increasing taxes so Lauk can continue with his special focus groups and continue getting paid his exuberant pay checks.
He will retire in luxury and be happy. In return the communities kids will continue to fail and your home will be worthless because of the home values declining due to poor performing schools.
Sounds like a plan!
