I would give her an F...she is trying...but she hasn't done anything positive yet...I could do her job for half the cost.
She tries. But I agree with the above.
On a second note: we should have hired Mr. Perren.

Just out of curiosity...what do you think he would do to make a positive impact and how do you think that she "tries"? I am honestly just wondering.

Grade the School Board. She is their puppet. Brought in to do their dirty work. They could not hire someone with any integrity because they would not do what the local board of fools want. They hired someone willing to take the blame for their ignorance.

A, B, C, D or F and explain.be honest...write in your comments.
and you can comment about the school board as well.
As I recall, the district she came from in south Georgia had consistantly lower test scores than Towns indicating to me that she failed there, and probably will here too.

The whole system is messed up starting with the school board then to the central office with secretaries making more than anyone in the school sytem to the school it self and saying that she is the school boards puppet is giving the school board members way more credit than they deserve I don't know if some of them even have the education to make intelligent decisions on some of the matters they are faced with it's just one been screwed up mess but..... someone is calling the shots but figuring out just exactly who is the problem.

Dr. Dick had this plan in place he just didn't have the guts to pull it off. From what I here there is a ton of drama rolling down the track this one should be very entertaining great new chapter to Hellawassee.

I'm not claiming to know all the answers and I wouldnt want to be on the school board I do believe that alot of people get on the school board with good intentions but you also know the saying about good intentions. It's hard to understand the inner workings of the school board because they have so many closed door sessions everything is done under a cloak of secrets and their is no public access to anything they do it's the strangest set up I've ever seen for this day and age I know every person on that school board and if you question any of them about something they are all very tight lipped and I don't know if it's a survival mechanism on their part or if they are told to be that way and if so by who? I just wish the public knew how and what they base their decisions on and who has the final say so trying to figure out if the superintendent is a figure head or if the school board are just figure heads someone is in charge but like I said in my previous post WHO?

Someone on the inside is feeding information to the Hellawassee writers. Dr. Dicks plan was a Special Ed Super School. Glad he is gone.

There had to be some better applicants.

Bill Kendall is and has been calling all the shots in this County for years. He told them to give up the SPLOST. He told them to not fire his nephew so they moved him to the learning center. He calls all the shots and will until we throw his corrupt butt out of office.

I know of at least 2 HIGHLY qualified applicants from nearby. Wasn't even considered! Until we're willing to bring someone in here and allow him/her to make the tough decisions, things are NEVER going to get any better. As long as the BOE sticks their noses into the daily running of the schools, nothing will change. We keep doing the same things and expect different results!! Ain't gonna happen!

We will continue to be the laughing stock of Georgia (and North Carolina)and the entire Southeastern United States for that matter!

Who are these "2 HIGHLY qualified applicants" who "Wasn't even considered!"? Are you "HIGHLY qualified" and was you considered?

By the way, you're not really Tom -- you're a Dick.

The only person to blame for the mess our school is in, is Bill Kendall. As superintendent he filled our school with unqualified teachers and administrators as he built his power kingdom. He never planned for the future. He never cared what was best for the children. He only cared about what would bring him the most votes and power.
As Commissioner He took the SPLOST funds to buy his mountain from his friends. His current mental condition is being covered up by his family and staff. The end of his terror is near.

Hey Dumbo, is the end of the terror according to the Mayan calendar? You wingnut apocalyptics are forever changing the dates. Your prognostication may not come to fruition, you know -- "He" is, after all, the king and the all powerful
