There are so many similarities in Dusso problems in Minnesota as MOCO is. A small community of 600 managed to get the ball rolling & the news media reported it
My opinion Powell & Dusso are cut from the same cloth. There was a policy put in place about negative comments. My opinion that's exactly what's been done here. You have kea at board meeting basically treating taxpayers with contempt. Didn't they think the taxpayers , who they were speaking to also pay their salaries? You have Powell appearing to bully people. Minnesota didn't put up with it!
Dusso has been under fire since his hiring in May. The situation hit a boiling point when a stringent comment policy for school board meetings was put in place, seemingly to restrict any negative opinions. A no-confidence letter garnered about 170 signatures in this town of about 600; three women were carried out of a meeting in November for refusing to leave after asking to speak. http://www.postbulletin.com/news/local/dusso-...
So I guess you're saying you want to be the next to get carried out! Ha ha
At least those women had the balls to sit there until the law came in and carried them out.
What did you do at the last meeting, I don't remember hearing anything about anyone getting carried out! Ha ha
After all the nonsense you go on about on here, you would think if you didn't get your chance to talk at the last board meeting, you have made someone carry you out. But apparently when you didn't get a chance to talk, you just started sucking your thumb, or something, because you sure didn't sit there until someone carried you out!
So, what's up with that? Why didn't you either speak your piece, or get carried out, one or the other?

I find this a very arrogant statement made by Dusso. The school board meetings had become crowded with angry taxpayers demanding answers from what I've read.Does this Sound familiar?
What does Dusso mean by uneducated?
Does he only listen to someone with a doctorates degree? I have news for him my tax dollars pays their salaries if I want to ask a question I will!
" The problem is you need to be educated to understand what you should be saying during the public comment piece," Dusso said."

Please notice Mary Lou seems to have her nose stuck everywhere. These are comments from various posts on a Minnesota newspaper blog concerning the Dusso mess. Please read the article from the link, hit the comment button, hit discussion tab & select oldest. Read the comments, people were feeling the same as MOCO. But there's one Mary Lou poster who says lots same things as we have read on topix here. Interesting!!!

" " harassed by the community and staff and suffer from slanderous comments made about you on this website,"

" , they will go rally up the uneducated, loud-mouths"

," I'm not calling the whole community of Lyle uneducated, I'm stating that the ones who are throwing fits and not being civilized are uneducated"

" If you feel that you are educated, I would recommend that you proof the comments you post to prove that you are educated. Everyone makes mistakes and slips here and there, but not capitalizing letters, forgetting periods, and repeating words is something learned in first grade. Unless, of course, you did not get the proper education."

Amazing similarities!!!!!!!!!! In attitude if nothing else.
The actual newspaper article mentioned an "assault threat" that didn't happen according to the news cameras that were there. And a restraining order that was used to try to silence someone.

Did you notice how Mary Lou LIED and try to say she was being threatened based on a comical comment in one of your previous posts????

She tried to say that on different threads. The TRUTH got posted right behind her, and she still kept trying. Repeatedly. So the TRUTH got posted repeatedly, too. Now I am wondering whether or not that was a setup to try and get someone silenced from the board meetings with a restraining order? I copied those posts, so no one can say you threatened her. The funny thing is that she seems to think everyone who disagrees with her is the same person. And she says she knows who that person is. She can't know who someone is on here without a subpoena. That is a FACT. So when she says she knows who someone is, that is a LIE.

If THAT tactic of trying to get a restraining order against someone gets used, look out. Then everyone will know what is being tried.

And it won't work here, either.

Kentucky has already had superintendents who have gotten in trouble this year. And at least one of them was over financial problems in the school district. I think the media, at least outside of Mt. Sterling, are going to be showing some interest in what goes on here. Time will tell.

Concerned, I appreciate your efforts. Please keep posting.

Contact the Standards Board. And pass the info about it along to others.

Mary Lou is clearly playing a PR game. Well, there are other ways to beat that.

The Education Professional Standards Board is where to start. And media outside of Mt. Sterling. The Advocate apparently dropped the ball.

Where is the missing $7,000,000 from the surplus fund, and what was it spent on? Powell refuses to answer questions about that. That is a great place to start.

Don't worry I'm sure nobody will hold it against you if you go to the next meeting and when it comes time for questions you just sit there and suck your thumb! Ha ha ha ha!
I'll tell you what, if you go to the next meeting and they tell you not to ask any questions, you tell them you're going to sit there until the law drags you out, or just do what you did last time, sit there like they tell you, and then come and cry on Topix about you not having enough pride to stand up for yourself!

Ha ha!
There's no need to talk about it, because " what" aka "concerned" aka "caught" aka "not so funny" is going to go to the next meeting, and when it comes time for questions he is going to get up and ask all the questions we've been talking about on here.
If they tell him they're not taking questions, he's going to sit there until they call the law in to carry him out! Ha ha
See last time they told him they were not taking questions, so he just sit there sucking his thumb. He was so embarrassed about not taking a stand, he got on topix and cried for weeks.
So the next meeting he's going to take a stand, and ask his questions or get hauled off by the police!!
But there's still that chance that he'll go to the next meeting and suck his thumb again, but if he does that, everyone on topix will know what kind of crybaby he is. So I have faith in him, it's either go to the next meeting and take a stand, or forever be the laughing stock of Topix! Ha ha
I wonder what it will be?

There are people who have been informed of the investigation by the Education Professional Standards Board. They have been quietly telling others. And giving direct contact information. Those people have been telling others..........

People with information worth passing to the EPSB, do feel free to pass it on. If you know of problems with Powell that need to be addressed, this is the organization who will look into your concerns. That was the comment made to me. "We WILL look into your concerns". Don't delay, and don't fail to do it. There is NOTHING Powell can do to stop this investigation. If you have an issue, send it to them.

The investigation is, in FACT, still ongoing. One can draw the probable conclusion that it is still ongoing because there are things worthy of the investigation. And it was going on before the story in the Advocate came out on Thursday, January 31. Whether things work out in Powell's favor or not, a full investigation will hopefully provide the answers people are calling for. And no, Mary Lou, just because people aren't on topix asking questions doesn't meant that they aren't asking them.

In that story, Chairman Kenney Gulley stated the following:

"The Educational (supposed to be Education, but this is how it is worded in the Advocate) Professional Standards Board is responsible for investigating and PROSECUTING (capitalization added)allegations of misconduct of educators, including superintendents. The standards board has the authority to suspend or revoke the certificates of educators that allegedly engage in misconduct, or impose other conditions that protect the safety of students and the integrity of the professional."

So, you see Mary Lou, it is not only out of your hands, and your ability to control, it is out of the hands of the Board regarding some very, very, important matters. If the Board were to try something as foolish as covering something up at this point, it will look extremely bad on them. Sure, the Board could attempt to silence people, but it will cost them.

I don't think that deep down, they are willing to do that. But, as I said, time will tell.

Either way, the Board cannot control what the EPSB is doing.

Or any interested media.

So, I will leave you with the post I left earlier. Ponder it a while, and have a good night.

This is so simple even you can get it.

I don't care who you are.

But I see what's going on.

And so do others. More than you realize.

This is out of your hands.

You can't control it.

The truth will come out.

It has begun to do so already.

Another great question, as a matter of fact could be your best!
I am do excited we're all going to get to watch you ask this question at the next board meeting, I can hardly wait!
Some people say you'll do the same thing as the last meeting, when they told you they weren't taking questions and you just sit there sucking your thumb, but I told them no way, he got so embaressed last time he cried on topix for weeks, he'll really ask his questions at the next meeting.
Besides, if you don't take a stand at the next meeting, you'll be the laughing stock of topix, and I know you don't want that!

Noose reportedly found in Lyle staff memberís office

Comments concerning the noose incident, but the comments are from a different article

"
If He was a "good" Superintendent... why did he allow a noose to be hung in the office of one of the schools employees?

"You are obviously NOT "in the know". The locks were changed before the noose incident, and the "noose" was not in the district office.....it was in an employee's office. Changing the locks on the business/district office only, does nothing to protect the rest of the building and its employees. Changing the lock was strictly an act of paranoia. He doesn't even allow the office to be cleaned by the janatorial staff. If he was concerned about the noose, he would not have had employees remove it before law enforcement got there would he? There are many interesting facts on that incident, and you should know them before you comment. "

"how was his fault that a noose was hung. also the only teachers that are scared for their jobs are the once that dont teach.mst was right on"

Concerned, you have again posted interesting info.

I agree completely with you, it looks like Powell or his friends have been trying to influence things since before he arrived.

Reading the older posts, and reading Mary Lou reveals surprising similarities.

Keep up the good work. Report your info to news agencies, both print and TV. And in locations greater than just Lexington.

The Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board is doing an investigation of Josh Powell. It is still ongoing.

Here is the link:

http://www.kyepsb.net/legal/index.asp

This is info from that page:

Ethics

The Education Professional Standards Board (EPSB) is responsible for investigating and prosecuting all cases of educator misconduct. Kentucky statute KRS 161.028 stipulates that the EPSB has the authority to suspend or revoke the certificates of educators that engage in misconduct, or impose other conditions that protect the safety of students, and the integrity of the profession. EPSB annually processes more than 300 disciplinary cases and 250 character and fitness cases.

You can find the phone number contact info for the EPSB on the link provided.

This is a good place to start passing the information along to the people who can do something about it.

I would recommend that people copy this post. I have seen other posts with information that was verifiable, and proof that there have been lies going on from the Powell side of the argument get deleted. And fast. Somebody on one of these different threads said that a school administrator could get something deleted faster than anyone through topix.

To those who see this, if this post gets deleted, you will know something is trying to be covered up. This is public information from a government website.

I posted this, and CURIOUSLY, it didn't show up on my phone a little over an hour later.

I have reposted it, and people can look at the contact information in the provided link.

If it disappears again, then giving info to the public, from a government website, is scaring somebody really badly, to the point of getting it deleted in an hour or so.

Someone already said in another thread that a school administrator can get that done faster than anyone.

Copy the information, and use it.

If these go away, it is a sure way to tell somebody doesn't want the info in them to get to the public.

Of course, it doesn't have to be posted just on the internet.

Thanks!

And thanks for the info you are finding!

Be sure to read Jull Humphrey's comments about the dog & his wife being run off the road. Weird to much drama for me

Then in Minnesota another superintendent a noose hung in a staff members office. Interesting still to much drama for me

Now why would KEA employees paid by taxpayers try to intimidate the taxpayers who are paying their salaries. Strange! they have made themselves look like a major cover up. This is my opinion

#267 Feb 24, 2013
If they are disappearing that fast sounds like someone who works for the school is doing it. But topix specifies if it isn't a minor or student, an adult from school goes through the same channels as anyone else.
I hope no one would be abusing this perhaps contacting topix & asking them to check for a high volume of requests being removed by MOCO public schools.
They wouldnt say but it would be checked because these posts is money for them from advertisers

All great question, just super! Everyone on topix is just on the edge of their seats waiting on the next board meeting so you can ask them!
I'm still having people tell me that you will not ask, a single one of those questions at the next board meeting. They say you'll do the same thing as the last board meeting, which was sitting there sucking your thumb!
But, I said oh no, he'll stand up at the next meeting and ask every one of these questions. I said the embarrassment you felt last time of letting the board walk all over you, while you just set there and let them, was more than you could bare. And there's no way you would let that happen again, or you would be the biggest laughing stock of all time on topix!
