Yes I totally agree with you. No one wants to take a bus to another town. Alot of us went to school there and want our kids to go there too. What needs to be done is parents, grand parents, aunts, uncles, friends, coworkers need to attend board meetings and speak and listen to what is going on. This is step one. Home school is an option but not really fair to the kids cause they want to be @school with friends
You are so right about showing up at the Board meetings... we need to show them we will not lie down for this, its our childrens futures they are messing with. There is no reason in the world not to stage a protest at the Board meeting... that is the American way.... they need to address our concerns and give us answers.... why were we not 'in' on this decision to let teachers go.... we as parents need to be more vocal and not let them push us around anymore.... maybe then, and only then, LPISD will actually pass the CSCOPE.

Bus what you aren't realizing is that the kids can be home schooled AND still take part in school sports etc, because we are tax payers, they cannot keep our kids from participating in school activities.

Yeah vote them off and bring me back. I might ignore your calls but that's because you are all ignorant and don't deserve my time. And your fking kids are even dumber. But I need my check to support my boyfriend lalo. He doesn't work so I have to support him. I may be old but I can still get a babe. I might send your school to ruin but that's okay because you all seem to love me. Go OT.
Is this the superintendent? I happen to know that he calls everyone by their initials...how sad if it is. He should set a good example for our community not talk like this on topix. Do we as parents really want him here and around our children? My kids are little and I want them to grow up here but I don't know....

This sounds as if you are disgruntled about an issue. Therapy works wonders for persons who have issues such as yourself!!

Seriously everyone, if you all are so worried about the school, get off your butts (and topix)and help your kids at home. It is time to take responsibility for our kids future. Secondly, you have to understand that people get fired all the time just look at all the teachers that got laid off in Uvalde. Worry about what you can control. Help your kids study, and if you dont know the work then find a tutor. The only way the scores will go up is if WE all work together.

I keep reading that Ms. Cortinas was let go due to TAKS scores, but what about Ms Rangel I hear her Math TAKS scores were really bad about 47% passing rate what will happen to her? Oh yea I forgot probably nothing since the board president is her sister! Do you think that is fair?

I'm starting to think it doesn't have much to do with test scores. It's more about who you know or who you piss off. As for the original question posted, I don't believe the superintendent nor the school board have a clear cut plan for our school district, besides promoting their own agendas.

I have to agree there are some bias in some of the teachers that are given a second chance, but in the case of Ms. Cortinas she is on her second chance. As nice a person she is, I think her passing rate was at 22%. Which was 3% drop from the previous year. When you can count the number of your students that passed on one hand, it is really hard to justify keeping you around.

So where can we see the percentage of passing per teacher?

This is why no one wants to teach here. I'm sure teachers feel like parents are out to get them (as suggested by FmRd1436)
