Get your facts straight. No, school boards do not do exit interviews or interview any candidates. The administration does that. It is their job. Webster probably bid on moving to Asbury like their contract allows. No business manager can move money like that without the superintendents authorization. Gino wants to blame someone and even he knows how bad he would look to hold Golde responsible when golde is applying for disability. Be real. NNM keeps harping on Webster, Brunetti and now Lincoln. Brunetti has been gone for a decade. And two employees out of almost a thousand is not a massive personnel problem in anyone's book, Chicken Little. the sky is not falling. I agree that if Webster has problems they should be dealt with. In the meanwhile, how about you let go of the endless repetition of these very limited, gossip based things and move on.
That is true what you say about the administration as I work for MTSD, but you need to know that some of this is not coming from NNM. Yes Gino has a lot in common with a broken record, but why are so many teachers talking about Webster. It all seems to be true about her.

He was let go 3 and half 4 years ago. That hardly constitutes a decade. Which board member are you???? Gino makes drama but you are not being very honest either. What a deplorable show that was on WICU with Lincoln. They showed it all. If you are a board member, you are playing right into Gino's hands. The media is just adoring all the fireworks from both sides and Koblyka is eating it up like a fat lady in a candy store. I just hope you don't repeat the mistakes that got so many people angry at our schools. Now the district looks worse than it did 2 or 3 years ago. I always thought board members like Judy Wheaton were very fair and education oriented. But it doesn't matter anymore because Gino rocked the boat and I think a new group is on its way into the boardroom regardless.

<quoted text>So you are suggesting hiring a firm conducting an inspection for free and one that does not explore all options?
Options include both remodel & new.
Yes, their failure continues because the remodel inspection & building new option are conducted at the same time. Suggesting only one option being necessary is a disservice to taxpayers, teachers and students. Arguing that stance only proves how tainted you are in individual thinking, and how out of touch from reality Lou, Donna, and Oh noes (Gino) really are.
The district wide feasibility study? It pointed out the boarderline schools. That study inspection isn't the problem. The problem was made on July 30th with what the board did with that info, but now has thankfully come back down to Earth. Maybe you should let go. No money means no money. Millcreek will move forward without a MEGA school building.

BTW - Just because someone doesn't agree with you doesn't mean they are tained. You can also have many different options to renovate, as I'm sure we soon will....

How shocking, Gino twisting what someone said.
The poster that is tainted believes the building study(ies) was not necessary & too expensive.

They followed your lead. Congrats! Your failure of miscommunication continues.

How about you board members put your kids in Webster's 1st grade class. I cannot believe people on here acting like the board cannot do anything and all problems are on Golde.
They are afriad to get too close to this one and this sort of thing should have been handled and probably is being handled by Stoops. Simple. Webster has serious problems and most of the leg work will have to be done by the administrators, not so much the board. It will need to be done right, or she could end up keeping her job with the problem still there.

At least it looks like Millcreek schools are not mulling in secrecy as much now. It is clear that there are a lot of teachers on here and many are fighting. There was obviusly much subversion going on with the teachers. I don't blame them one bit for not speaking against the school this summer. Retribution must be very real in this district.

It looks like it. Just look at the Palermo vs. Montagna hate fest. And don't kid yourself they love the attention the hate fest makes. Gino gets his schnoz on the tube, and Palermo shows off his muscle with all eyes on him like the good old days on the football field. I bet Palermo ain't to happy about not getting that stadium.
Make sense

You are suggesting that the teachers union has no strength.

I'm not too sure the teachers are willing to admit that.

Board? What do you have to offer our community other than a teabagger stance on spending? What can you offer on Curriculum? Personnel development? How do you propose to help our students prepare fit the Keystone exam? Do you know what that is? What do you propose for our gifted students? Students with IEPs? Where do you stand on the concept of differentiated instruction? STEM? How to improve McDowells Cyber School? Did you know McDowell offered its own cyber school? Should Montessori be expanded?
I would love to hear you stance on just done of these areas. You are a one trick pony. BTW, again, I am not a teacher or a government worker. Nor have I ever been. So, I am not paid by taxpayer money. You look ridiculous by still trying to suggest I am some teacher with which you done axe to grind.

You really are that crazy cancer teacher everyone is talking about! Gino was right.

Stop being angry all the time....These are all very good topics! Give the candidates a couple weeks and I have no doubt they will touch base on all these and more.

Riding the fact that the district has a 3.5 million revenue shortfall is hardly pounding the table. Even last spring and summer when this was unknown to all we taxpayers were correct in our assumption that the board was completely oblivious. Kramer himself said Lincoln was told not to tell the board critical info....then you wonder why?

Remember when Palermo was in a mad rush to cut a measly $12,000 from drug testing? Something I was not happy about in anyway...and still they over spend 1.9 million.

Earth to Ms. Monkey...Earth to Ms. Monkey...this is Houston calling...come back to Earth!

You've mentioned this budget cut repeatedly, so a while ago I checked into it and found that the recommendation came from the student services committee. Palermo isn't even on that committee, so please explain how he was in a "mad rush" to move forward this board agenda item. Looking back, there were a couple of good explanations as to why the obsolete drug testing program should no longer be paid for. For heavens sake, let us not complain about poor fiscal management then also complain when the fat is appropriately trimmed.

Palermo did try to cut the cheer program. And look how great they have done. He isn't on that committee last time I checked?
