Which should he cut? At-Risk Counselor/Girlfriend who seldom works but still gets paid, Senior Citizens at top heavy Central Office, Senior Citizens at Asbury, "Professional" Groundskeeper Supervisor, Merry Mower Men, Athletic Directors, School Nurses, Instructional Assistants, or Classroom teachers?

Parents do not want overcrowded classrooms. Instructional Assistants should not be cut. Most assistants are very hard working people with low wages.

Cut the athletic director at dchs??? That's fair to the kids then they would be the only high school in the area without an athletic director. Unlike shhs and others we have a severely underfunded athletic dept lackluster weightroom, facilities and sports equipment I wouldn't cut that dept anymore hell the school has just 1 gymnasium no swim team no tennis team and a pathetic track to run on. Dont penalize the kids anymore in the sports dept we have over 1300 kids in that school and the athletes compete in a major tssaa classification against many large schools throughout the area they have to keep an athletic director!

What EXACTLY has Josh Kite done to help Crockett athletics? NOTHING that's what. My child goes there and you're not telling me anything that I don't know. He is a waste of money. If they are going to keep the position then at least get someone who WILL do the job.

How about you people focus your kids on their education instead of leisure sports. It's much more important that we dwindle the idiot to intelligent ratio around here. You can start off with the basics like learning the difference between sale and sell. Then move on to more advanced things like the difference between to, too, and too or there, their, and they're.

Yes I agree we should maybe hire someone new to run the athletic dept but definitely not abolish it. Get a clue I agree with you learning does come first but please look at the test scores for all of the schools in washington co and the city and they have improved in every category every year the past 4 years. Although not stellar and crockett and boone are behind science hill in every category they have always been a little above the state average in reading writing science and math. The problem is and I strongly recommend watching the movie waiting for superman is that once a teacher completes 3 years of teaching they get residency which means no matter how poor or how amazing a teacher is unless they commit a crime they always have a job, they might get moved around but are guaranteed the job and I promise you that's true. And there is no incentive for great teachers with great scores who cannot get paid more for going above and beyond so there is no motivation in monetary means to be great that's how it is in every public school system, please watch the teacher produced movie waiting for superman, we can't get rid of the bad teachers that's a major problem! But please guys we have a good school system we have never been great in the county system but we have never been below average on our standardized testing according to the state education dept...

How about you get off of your high horse and stop acting like you are so superior? My son is an athlete AND manages a 3.9 GPA. I think that he is doing just fine with his education and his "leisure sports". Let me guess you are one of those goobers who wouldn't know a baseball from a football and couldn't make the team? It's tough being a loser, eh?

Really? Is the best you can do finger wagging name calling and random assumptions?
If your kid is sooo smart with his whopping 3.9 GPA he must be terribly embarrassed to have such a complete moron for a parent.

We agree. Just cut out the positions at the CO. No other system has that many assistants to the assistants. Cut the overstaffed Asbury senior staff too. They sleep more than they work. Some only have 2 to 3 students at one time. One employee there has a permanent vacation. Let us guess who that is.

Very wise bunch of teachers here. It does not take long to catch on when you do in service at Asbury.

Really? Is THAT the best that you can do? You are hilarious! Josh Kite IS an embarrassment to DCHS. He sneaks off to play golf all day long and does absolutely nothing to help any of the schools on this side of the county. Try calling the school one day to reach him. They will tell you that he is out or at one of the other schools when he is really hanging out at the golf course or at home taking a nap. This has been proven and he has been caught before but absolutely nothing was done. Nothing.

Who is Kite's boss or is he his own boss like the other AD?

Asbury teachers will stay/work is not the correct word until the funeral home comes to take them away. They would have already been retired if they were in a regular classroom. Been there during inservice and have seen them napping. Total waste of tax dollars. What can be done to stop the waste?
