There she was, again on the announcements, reminding all of us that we should wear hoodies and sweatshirts (for the 5th time)! I think she likes being on TV :).

Orientation aside, she has not earned the respect of the faculty or the students. she is not there to see that the students recieve
the best possible education. she is there to hinder it with her head games. Only when the super and board want to really investigate some of the things she does to faculty and students with disregard for education can we expect there to be change. as I undestand it she was granted tenure, what a MISTAKE. we have seen some very disapointing appointments to the administration in the years after George Deluco and I'm sure you will agree that is when the school started its downward spiral. there is no acountability for the administration and that is sad. they simply are not capable people. we have been getting the bottom of the barrel and should be tired of it. its about time the board start listening to the people about their feelings, after all who elects them. next election lets vote out the rubber stamp board members that haven't got a clue about what is going on up there. Rudds head games with the staff must be stopped. it is
ruining any chance our kids have of recieving a decent education.
THIS SCHOOL HAS GONE DOWN THE TUBES SINCE DELUCO LEFT AND WE ALL KNOW IT, AND ITS SICKENING. IT'S NOT OUR TEACHERS FAULT EITHER ITS THE FOUR MORONS AT THE TOP THAT DID IT!!!! Time to clean house.
you got it! They certainly arent qualified are they? They get a big fat D from most of the citizens. Only problem is... who is willing to run?? geez at this point even Zeppo could do a better job!

I know that my opinion will be unpopular but..........Karen Cubino actually had the potential to be a good administrator at that school. They chased her away because she actually had the nerve to oppose Ms. Rudd. I know that a lot of people thought that she was a b***** but at least she was a fair one! She treated everyone the same. She didn't play favorites and she didn't back down. If a student broke the rules they knew exactly what was going to happen every time. She didn't back down from parents or administration either. Ms. Rudd is a bigot and a bully. Considering the speculation about her sexual orientation (whether true or not), it's surprising that she would so openly judge people based on things like the color of their skin and her perception of their socioeconomic status.

Our school has nothing but teachers that have been fired from other schools or inexperienced ones. These teachers spend way to much time thinking about what they have to do later in their day then teaching their students.I can say that only a few teachers are good at their job. Otherwise lets look at our schools test scores... and tell me what you think.

You have got to be kidding me. George was a horrid teacher, an incompetent administrator and a perfect example of the Peter principle. Ever hear about how he was caught by the Dolgeville Football coaches as he was sneaking around in the woods next to the Dolgeville High School football field with a video camera taking videos of a scrimage just before Ilion and Dolgeville faced off in a football game? After that little stunt, the former Dolgeville football star was blackballed from ever from gaining entry to the Dolgeville Football Hall of Fame. Pure slime.

Thanks Fred.
The post from a student that I responded to was moronic. What should I do instead? Tell them it was well written to give the student a false sense of achievement. I will not sit back on ignore the garbage. If someone is being an idiot, I am going to let them know. Without some criticism, they will not change their behaviors. Besides, our high taxes need to yield results. That post appeared to be written by a person who has no appreciation for the education being given.
ok jerk now i am a former student of ilion high school. so sorry that my spelling was not up to your standards. and if you want to accuse me of not appreciating the education i was given you can go talk to my professors and check out my 3.6 GPA. oh and did i mention i'm in a program to get a phd in a few short years? you're right kids should not be coddled and your money should be yeilding results. but the fact is no one up there is taking control of those students. they run wild. so you should be thankful that there are students like me up there. so thanks because its people like you that give me motivation to be better than Ilion. good luck with life ass.

On a positive note. At last nights Varsity Basketball game (Herkimer vs Ilion), I was so impressed with the actions of the Ilion team, I had to shake the Coach's hand and comment. The Boys were complete Sportsman and Gentleman from the National Anthem (ALL with hands over their hearts), right down to the congrats at the end of the game. Even though Herkimer lost, I enjoyed this game more than any other this season. Anyone who has anything to do with these young men should be PROUD of how they represented their school last night. Best of luck to them for the rest of the season.
People, there is good and bad in all environments. Whether it be a Corporate setting, or an Educational Institution. People sometimes act in self serving ways and seem to be come proficient at manipulating the system, as well as other people. The best you can do is address problems as you see them and be sure to not let the positive be totally overshadowed by the negative that seems to be getting more attention. You have good kids there, as do All schools. Bad apples are everywhere, but usually not the Majority. Organize to address real problems, but support the kids. They deserve a fair chance at a fruitfull life.

That isn't the only Ilion coach who has issues. How about the psycho Miss Raux. Last year a student broke the rules and had her cell in gym. Instead of taking it and giving it to the principle so the parents could be called, she threatened the girl in front of the class and then threatened to stomp on it and break it. That is real mature. No wonder the kids have no respect for her.

I agree with you 100%! Karen Cubino was far from a bitch. She was a brilliant teacher and really cared about the students. I learned the most from her and Mrs. Ruff when I went to high school. If she had been in charge, that school would have been much better off!

HAHAHA oh no! Did she really do that? No way! Serves your kid right. Tell her to follow the damn rules and it wouldn't have happened. What the hell do you need a cell for in gym class anyways? I always thought Tara was hilarious!

Maybe if one phone was smashed the kids would stop using them where they shouldn't.

The kids have great respect for her. You on the other hand are raising one of those monsters that thinks she doesn't do anything wrong. Why exactly did she have her cellphone in gym anyway? OF COURSE it wasn't her fault. You are a pshycho freak that will have a kid on medication to deal with life because you failed to give her those skills by the time she is 22, I guarantee it!
Good Luck with that.

Ever wonder why these tough high school teachers aren't so tough after you graduate? These teachers can't do anything in life so they get their kicks.pushing around a bunch of teenagers.Seriously, if a person's only goal in life is to become a high school teacher then that's pretty pathetic...

I, being a student, have my concerns myself. But as bad as she is at her job the thing that gets me the most is she gives me that creepy feeling like I'm gonna get called into her office and she's gonna violate me.
