Just so this thread doesn't get buried, I'll update everyone on the goings on.
Did you know the school district was on a holiday break 4th of July week? Neither did all of the parents and students who showed up to pick up diplomas and transcripts. It wasn't updated on the website. Maybe that's because the PIO is leaving...I wonder why.
More resignations of longtime CCISD employees keep coming ( they are going to better districts), so keep checking the district employment page. Burns is only looking for people with doctorates to run little things, so you might want to go back to school....
Has anyone had an encounter with Dr. Burns outside of the school district yet? He's nice to you if he knows you're no threat, but completely ignores you if you are. Oh, and he does that to district employees too.

Next year is going to be bad too.

I can see him tearing the school district apart, he has especially taken aim at special education where we have the biggest need of professionals to help these kids get a fair chance after graduation.

I hope the School Board does something soon !!

Unfortunately, the school board won't. Special Education has been under attack since Burns came along. He tormented one director into leaving and made more special educators leave after that. He has no clear vision for the program except to hire more expensive directors to make the problem disappear from his daily schedule.

Ask anyone what his vision for the district is and they will give you a glazed-over look.

So when is he going to let the Deputy go? He's sorely under-qualified for his job and Burns has surrounded himself with enough yes men that Burns doesn't have to worry about an uprising from the locals anymore.

I realize Burns is a REAL problem but the reason he's a problem is that the school board is NOT managing him. I suspect that is because they are not engaged with what's happening. Why are they approving all the "temporary" staffing locations? Why do they waste money setting up offices and then almost immediately using district personnel to move those offices to other locations? Why is the planning so poor and why doesn't the school board take Burns to task for this poor planning? Why was Parcell replaced as high school principal and moved to a position he is totally and completely unqualified for and why did the school board approve it?

Overall, the problem is the board and their poor choices.

You can start saving a lot by getting rid of that pompous buffoon of a football coach, his brother who is a coach, and his kid who is a coach.

Scorpion, the only way to do that is to vote against the current board, get rid of the Superintendent and bring in someone who is competent.

You do know the kid isn't coaching anymore, right? Do you also know the small % the athletic budget is of the overall school budget? I won't spoil it by telling you, look it up.
