This morning's Frankfort Times report that the resignations of superintendent Jeffrey Bond, who held the position for only a month, was accepted by the CC school board at last night's school board meeting.

What the school board refused to divulge however, were the exact circumstances behind Mr. Bond's resignation even when questioned by a citizen during public participation.

Why the cover up? Mr. Bond was a public employee in a high profile position, if some breach of etiquette or possibly illegal activity caused his resignation shouldn't other prospective school corporations he may apply to in the future be made aware?

The word was, Bond wanted to have a special ed class in the school, instead of shipping them out. He has an autistic (sp) child.

My kids are out of Central, so I haven't been on the site for awhile. Why did the board meet 5 times in October? Do you know they get paid every time they meet? They are going to break the bank, with matters that can wait until regular meetings.

Interesting. Yet in an article in last week's Frankfort Times stated that CC Elementary is now marketing itself to prospective students in other school districts.

quote: "Clinton Central Elementary has started marketing itself to prospective home buyers that visit Frankfort and parents outside the school corporation limits.

“We want to let people know that we have open enrollment,” said Principal John Sloggett of Clinton Central Elementary School.

The school is creating a brochure to inform perspective residents of the school’s attractive attributes. "

end quote.

All the county school ship their kids to Frankfort. If the child has more than just a learning disablity, their own school don't want them. Frankfort takes them and gets paid from the government to teach them. In the past, the teacher wasn't qualified to take care of these children or teach them. Now they have to prove their qualifications to be the teacher of record. I have helped in the schools and seen the changes. I have high respect for special ed teachers.

And people wonder why Frankfort is a failing school. Not only do they get the learning disabled children from other school districts in the county, they get all the non-english or low-english speaking Mexican students as well. They're ISTEP tests and other government required tests are given to EVERY student and not graded on a curve or graded accordning to their individual skills. This is why Frankfort Schools suck. This is why all the other county schools are being considered "Better Schools".

The special ed kids don't take ISTEP test. A lot of them can hardly spell their own name. So they can't be bringing down the test average.

Why are so many people un-educated about the school system. Get off this site and get on your school site, request the budget reports, minutes of the meetings, policies.(which have been passed by the school board, right under your nose.) The school boards of Clinton County have gotten out of control, they make too many decisions behind closed doors. They are not representing the people who voted them in and they are doing the ultimate...not putting our children first!

Laws have changed over the years. Used to be ENL students who had been in the school system for less than 3 years, and most special education students, did not have to take ISTEP. Now, everyone has to be accounted for. Certain accommodations are made such as having someone read the test to the students. So a student can move into the district, not speak English, and be required to take the test. Special education students may not have to actually sit down and take ISTEP, but there is an alternative test that replaces the ISTEP. So all students are tested and their scores are added in, regardless of special needs or language issues.
