Good point. I've been doing some reading about the UC situation and it seems to me he has very little respect for two things:
1 site based councils
2 tenure
Kind of looks like he needs to open his own charter school.
Also seems like he was getting a lot of heat in both the places he worked before here and he got out before it got too bad. Wondering if that will happen here.
He is really making some angry.
I just look at him and watch him and think, man you must have really been picked on as a kid.
But as stated before, I do have respect for what he is trying to do.
The site based councils should have the pull and authority that they state laws say they have been given.

But, I don't have respenct for "tenure" either. In what other job in the world do you get to hang around to collect full retirement no matter how lousy of a job you are doing. Out in the business world, or other situations, you do bad, you don't work. Tenure just costs tax payers dollars!!!

Did the PR director resign or was he fired? I always thought they were big buddies! Does anyone know what happened there? I'd say this guy knows enough to hang Powell!

Shingles, the word is he resigned.

hotmess, it's already happened months and months ago. At least he's setting some records, but they are for destroying a district and not for student achievement.

I can tell you JP has no class at all but the very first post about writing recommendations was not something he did. That was in effect when Dr. Dumbass (Freeman) was the leader. JP is really just doing whatever he wants and that is going to continue until someone steps up. However, I think some of the changes needed to be made but I don't know how you do it in the first 6 months you are here. Sounds like the board had some hidden agendas and heis jsut carrying them out. Word is that Mr. Ramey at Mapleton is not going to apply for the full time job and that Todd Wilson will be the next one to fall. Shannon Gross has been demoted back to classroom. Even though some things needed to be done it is being done the wrong way.

I talked to an assistant once about a serious problem I had with the way the school handled some issues dealing with my child. The assistant told me the problem could be handled, "we do it all the time for some kids, no problem, we'll take care of it" After the problem did not go away, I went back and was informed, "taking care of the problem would be discrimination, and could not be done, and has never been done" Its funny in this district how a name, or social status, means most children here don't have a fighting chance when dealing with the school!

YOU GO JP, CLEAN THAT PLACE OUT!

I agree 100%. Almost every parent, and student in Mo Co are very happy with all the new changes.

Only a select few, that had a little pull before Mr P. are the ones on here crying. It's only a couple on here, they just keep changing there name.

And the teachers who were fired were absolutely terrible, they were hateful to the students, always gossiping about other teachers, and even the students and their families. Mr. P saw right through them, and canned their butts. Now they get on here trying to act like they were done wrong.

There's a few slackers left, but they won't make it much longer, unless they change their attitude, and start doing their jobs. Wait until the test scores come back, I bet there will be a huge improvement from last year! Then what are these crybabies going to cry about?

I am a parent of a child in the system and I am not happy with a lot of these changes. We are increasing payroll and taxes at an unsustainable rate. There has to be a check in place somewhere to slow this down. I did not agree with the large spending that the previous administration made nor am I of this one. Both sides of this argument are slashing at each other while our tax dollars fly away. I guess all of you are willing to ignore that while the side you support is in power and you can get what you feel you deserve. All of you are hypocrites yelling it's for the kids while you line your own pockets!

I'm sure you think cleaning up this mess was going to come free of charge. LOL!

I'm sure you think spending money, so our children are better educated, and better taken care of, is a waste. I'm sure you think our tax dollars would be better spent, taking care of the lazy unemployed teachers who got fired. Well, not me, I'm glad our tax money is finally going to our children. Making sure they obtain a better education by more qualified teachers.

Powell is a short timer wait and see. He brought an Athletic Director with him and paying him $80,000 a year which is like being a thief in the night. If the Board members don't get rid of GH and stop the stealing then I will do everything I can to get everyone of them beat and trust me when I say I can get a lot of votes for whoever runs against them. Montgomery County schools are starting to be known for having an idiot Superintendent who thinks he is Hitler. Everywhere I go I
am asked about if he as bad as he is talked about. How in the world he got this job is beyond me. I know of several parents who will beat him like a step child if they ever see him out. He won't be here long!

No you sarcastic idiot I do not. Nor do I think offering extravagant salaries to Middle School principals, hiring personal attorneys, PR men on a part time basis on a full time salary, raising taxes and then giving it away to others not connected with the schools in any way, hiring three asst. AD's for the HS, giving jobs to the people you bought your house from in management positions and on and on as spending money wisely for our children's education.
You are just an example of one of the hogs now at the trough being defensive. All of you should be run out of this county! Lol that you thief!

Sometimes I think board members think they are being unique by hiring someone like Powell. A maverick, so to speak. And once they have hired a superintendent, it becomes a save-face situation. They will back him come hell or high water. They can't admit to themselves or much less to anyone else they may have made a mistake.

Wrong you are 100% correct that Powell did these things and it is simply paying back his friends and advancing his personal agenda.

Just remember this when it comes time to vote for new Board members. I think three are up in May and the other two in Nov.

On here, don't feed the troll. Plain as day is a troll.

"You can get alot of votes"?? LOL!

Yeah right!! LOL.. maybe in topix land. We're talking about the real world where adults live!

You didn't have enough pull to even save your own job, and yet you can pull alot of votes?? What an idiot!

Powell is going to be here for another 6-8 yrs, if not longer. But you keep telling yourself how much you can get done Moron!! LOL!

Look at his track record. Short timer has it right. He is busy making politician buddies so he can make his way to Frankfort. A few years here, a few years there, make himself look like superboy, find a few idiots to follow him around, blah blah. Same story different day different place.

I'm ecstatic! These "furious" about the new superintendent threads tickle me pink! Thats because I know its just the crooks and cronies who got their stool kicked from underneath them H-A-R-D, they are the ones who are cryin'..Go ahead..cry me a river..LMAO![imagine me with my thumbs in my ears, while stickin' my tonge out in this space]

That previous clique destroyed alot of childern over the years in the name of power and money..Now, maybe ALL of the children of this district will be treated with respect and dignity!

Just think, I used to be a generous, kind, and considerate person just a few short years ago..then I was forced to deal with the school over my children..that experence has hardened my heart, and put blood in my eye! From what I'm hearing now, alot of those who I had to deal with... those who lied to me, those who LAUGHED at me, those who retaliated against me...are GONE!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus!
