Never mind high school. You need to go to some middle school English classes. When you learn to communicate, try again.

I don't know you and really don't care to. You are so very wrong!!!! Some of these kids really needed help and I for one am very glad that Laker Pride and Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Lyle care enough about these kids to give them the help they need.
They are not spoon fed anything. I have visited there and know for a fact they do work on what subject they need help with!!
I have a feeling you are one of the many that want to do away with Laker Pride and SHAME ON YOU!!!!
No what is a shame is watching these kids just go through and they don't care at all about their futures so why should anyone else? I am a teacher and take great pride in helping my students achieve their goals. But you can't help someone that doesn't want to be helped. And the laker pride students just want the teachers to do their work for them and push through graduating.

I have read all of these post & seriously can NOT believe the crap I am reading. My child is in her Junior year of school at CCHS. She has always been a good student never ever been in trouble at school, however struggles academically in some subjects & requires extra help in those areas. We have done after school help, and we have done summer school her freshman & sophomore year which te students are allowed to make up 2 classes per year in summer school. CCHS counselors & administration failed my child! I was contacted in January of this year by Mr King...which the information he has to give anyone is useless! He stated to me that "they have been doing some checking on credits & it appears my child doesn't have enough to graduate next year." I was furious to get this news at the end of my daughters junior year. He informed me that my child would have to go to the Alternative School to make up her credits in order to graduate next year. Laker Pride was NEVER offered to my child! She came home crying saying mom please don't make me go to school with the bad kids. I went to the school board office & there was never anyone to talk to me so I went to to the school and asked to speak to her counselor & find out how this happened. Needless to say I couldn't get an answer to my question but they would check on it. My child had to go to the Alternative School in January. They have a different dress code, they pat them down with a metal detector every morning, and she hated it! After 2 months of this I went back to school & demanded answers & was told that the counselors at the school had let her fall thru the cracks & had enrolled her in the same math class for the past 3 years. I said then why when I sent her to summer school was it not made up. There response was we didn't enroll her in the math for the summer they enrolled her in the summer for classes she didn't need. After 2 months my child was taken out of Alternative School & put in Laker Pride. She worked her butt off to get out of Alternative School so she could go to Laker Pride & be associated with the other high school kids she has done wonderful since she is under Mrs Adams. This lady cares about those kids & loves her job & every one of her students. I am outraged that the school did not contact the laker pride parents to inform them this was being discussed at the board meeting. I knew nothing till I seen it on the news. He says it will save $150,000 but yet they went and spent the &150,000 on new digital reading materials for the school. This is wrong and the parents need to get together & do something. They did not handle this by the books & needs to be checked into & the counselors & administrators need to make sure this isn't happening to other students because this almost cost my child to miss out on her graduation!

I am so sick and tired of people calling the day treatment facility the "bad kids" school. Some of those kids are there because they made a minor mistake. They are teenagers and are entitled to make mistakes but let me tell you this...those teachers, counselors and director, Ms. Payne, care more about those kids than any other teacher you'll ever meet. They are teaching there because they WANT to help your child. A school is meant to help your child get their grades up. That is their job. They search the kids because there is such a small number of them going there. Believe me. If they could search every kid in the high school quickly they probably would. They search with a wand and have them dress appropriately, big deal. They have to be quiet and respectful, no phones, talking over teachers, etc. I wish my child was there now because I've never felt so informed and happy with my child's education than that short period of time he was there. And before you go on saying he was "bad" I'll tell you he was there because he was walking to his friends AFTER school when he was an 8th grader and apparently that is a huge no-no.

I am not saying there are "bad kids" there I am saying my child was placed there and should have been sent to laker pride & wasn't. My point is there are kids being placed there that shouldnt be. Every kid deserves a chance to show they can recover from there mistakes and the alternative school & day treatment is an excellent program for them. There has to be a transition to get those kids back to the school with the other students or they will give up & quit & that is what Laker Pride does. They have excellent staff at the Day Treatment & Alternative school & due to safety reasons I'm glad they make them dress differently & have security measures. Bottom line is there are several kids over there with behavioral problems I know this because my child attended & my problem with that is she shouldn't have been placed there. Just like there is other kids that shouldnt be there. Its not fair for the kids that have just fell behind due to surgeries or illness or the school not placing your child in the correct classes. When you enroll your child in high school you go over 3 types of diplomas & you have to chose the one you think is best for your child's academic needs. As a parent you trust that the school counselors & administration make every effort to make this happen & if your child is in danger of not graduating that they would figure it out before waiting till the end of her junior year so it can be fixed. I feel like if Mr. Bargo is going to make them go back over to the other building & not make them be around the other students then they should be treated like the other students at the high school not like the students at Day Treatment & the Alternative school.

I personally think they should do away with this program for good. It promotes students to do awful and is just a failsafe for the students that dont do anything. I should know most of my friends are in this program and get rewarded for being ignorant. What i have gotten for getting all a's and b's not a damn thing..

I am glad that you are able to get A's & B's and that you don't struggle in certain areas, and that you haven't been hospitalized due to medical issues, or have had to move here from another school which caused you to be behind on your credits in order to graduate.....HOWEVER... There are kids out there that have had to deal with these things that are beyond there control & deserve to be able to get the extra help they need to graduate high school. These kids deserve to be able to be part of the high school they don't have behavioral issues & they aren't in the court system they have no reason being placed at the other school just so it can pay for the million dollar building they built that they can't pay for. Why not try making cuts in other departments that take too much of the budget! Bottom line is the way this was handled was wrong & the board & the parents will end up getting the truth out.....this was not done "By the Books."

I understand your anger and frustration; but in the middle of your post you almost skimmed over what was the genesis of your problem - the incompetence of the guidance counselors.

If your information is correct and she was enrolled in the wrong classes, even in summer school - there is no excuse for that. The guidance office has been the weak link in that chain for a long, long time.

What they have done can not be fixed however if my child is going to spend her senior year with her friends & classmates & should never have been placed in alternative school program. She was never even referred to Laker Pride even though we repeatedly asked why she couldn't be in the program. The reason why was because they wanted the funding they received for her being there to go to pay for the new building which is why there are other kids that was placed there that shouldn't be. The truth will come out & hopefully the parents & board members will get someone honest in there to run the show.

You are totally correct. The higher ups want Laker Pride moved in order to pay for that million dollar building and that's the only reason. I am sorry that your child was treated the way she was and I would be furious too.
There needs to be an internal investigation of the whole school!

The school board meeting is May 9th & WPSD will be there & interviewing parents, and former students from Laker Pride. I hope that Mr. Bargo comes with answers to alot of questions & concerns. The budget for next year is absolutely ridiculous! They have budgeted $1,019,520.00 for a New Athletic Field House & $510,654.00 for a new Administrative Suite and let's not forget $169,500 to renovate the Calloway County Bus Garage but let's take away a program that helps educate & benefit our kids! Parents need to be at this meeting & see where the money is going that the school get off our kids to go to this school. It's time for the parents to speak up. I'm all for helping support the sports in our school but this is unreal!

There are many other programs offered that help students that are struggling. But they have to take the time to ask for help if they truly want it. The Laker pride program is truly a waste of money. When you have title one programs and tutoring programs available through out elementary-high school. There is no reason that they should need this program if they are actually working.
