Don't know what you're referring to, but if she's quit, its probably because she got tired of doing a 90k$ job for a teacher's salary.

We've got a sorry bunch of school board and commissioners that would put a loyal teacher in a position like that and leave her for who knows how long.

She was fired for misrepresenting the school system and for writting bad checks.

Ms. Toppins must have discovered how school board members were paid to do the work for those jobs that were not bid out? Wonder what else she found out? She must have been so close to breaking open pandoras box, they had to move fast. Wonder if the sunshine law was broken? When has the school board ever voted 100% on anything? Now we can watch our tax dollars go toward paying mega bucks to the same family. SOS, one step forward and two steps back! Way to go board members. To bad some of u r not coming up for reelection.

Jimmy Carter is the new director. Mrs. Toppins was let go for mismanagement. Bills had not been paid and a check was written with no money in the account. The state was in last week.

misrepresenting?

Could this mean that she didn't cover for the poor decisions of the school board. If Mr. Carter doesn't do it and play the rubber stamp, he'll be out soon enough too. When's this comedy going to end?
right one this time

Jimmy Carter is just as crooked as Wayne Goforth. Just you wait and see. Isn't it amazing that the 4 who voted Toppins out were also some of the ONES getting behind the scenes contracts??
Yes, I'm SURE the sunshine law was broken,,,many ways

I had head Jimmy Carter was put in, and I am not sure why they put Mrs. Toppins out. I have been told by many different people that Mrs. Toppins was doing a good job as superintendent. Who voted her out?

Brian oaks is in thewrong. The media needs to talk to marilyn. She can tell all. Instead of reducing central office staff, mr. oaks got another family friend moved into central office.

i read the newsleader today and it all makes sense now. so they move attendance lady to central office to mr carters job? now when they dont want him as superintendent any longer he has no job to go back to?

I too read the paper this week. There was a bit more of the story than we'd been given by the Shopper.

The reporter said she'd contacted Toppins and Carter for comments. I'm wondering why she didn't try to contact the board members to ask each of them why they voted as they did.

Board members historically haven't returned calls when contacted especially with Ms Davis. I was told that Toppins would not return her calls either. I would imagine that saying nothing keeps the potential for additional litigation down.
she wont talk
