Tonight Brandt retired from Newport Schools and Dan Sullivan was named temporary superintendent. There was a standing ovation when the board voted to accept his resignation. There was another standing ovation when Mr. Sullivan was named as superintendent. What would you like to see happen now in Newport Schools?
Thanks NPT Board

My family would like to thank every member of the Newport School Board of Education for all of their hard work recently.

We would like to acknowledge all board members; Andrea Janovic, Melissa Sheffel, Lewis Hayden, Ramona Malone, and Julie Smith Morrow, for devoting many hours to attending meetings, wading through district budget documents, analyzing audit reports, and acknowledging the failures of leadership in the district.

Most of all, my family would like to thank the Newport Board of Education for their vote last night. You have opened the doors of our schools once again to the community, where it belongs.

I want to thank the last poster for assisting in a great POLITICAL move. The truth be known the State has advised all these people that if the state comes in and takes over the District it will not be pretty for their Political careers. Brandt is not dumb, he has been given a heads up by the State. Janovic still cannot refuse to admit she pushed for years to keep Brandt. Now all of a sudden she's a hero????? It took all the bad press of the state taking over for her to finally step up,$1,500,000 in salary and benefits later?????????? Janovic and the rest are still all just big JOKERS nothing more! Glad to see the state give us more money so my child has a chance now! Make Roger Griffith the Super, he truelly cares for the children of Newport.

I can answer that. When Uselessman was chairman he protected his "daddy form the 'nati" by painting a pretty picture to the board and only giving them information on a need to know basis. And if you have ever been to a board meeting you would have seen all those central office people and administrators up there telling the board how great things are. There were no teachers or parents there complaining. What else should they have believed? Are they mind readers? Put in some honest people as administrators who aren't afraid to speak up about what is really going on in the district and you will see some more informed decisions.

the board who hired him, which includes tete turner, are just as criminally to blame for everything as brant is! they are all a joke, though the joke has sadly been the children and tax payers of newport, and the state of ky.

Well, the clock begins anew. Based on what I've read in this forum, I expect to see vast improvement in the district now that Brandt is gone. Let's see how long it takes before everyone realizes all the problems that can't be solved simply by removing Brandt. And I do hope Sullivan's stay at CO will be of short duration. This sad little district needs someone a little more inspired than that old used up dinosaur. Meanwhile, I'll be glued to this forum awaiting the next scapegoat for the teachers to blame. Prove me wrong...please. I'm very tired of throwing away my tax dollars on a school district that only serves to diminish my property value!

Do you even know Mr. Sullivan? He is a wonderful man who really cares about the Newport School system, but he is not a magician, he does not have a magic wand he can wave and correct 7 years of mismanagement overnite. Newport was very lucky he cared enough to come back to this nightmare and try to help find a solution to this huge problem. Thanks Mr. Sulliuvan! Newport needs you now more than they ever did.

I know Mr. Sullivan very well. My opinion of him is not nearly as generous as yours. He had many, MANY years to make this district a success. Actually, the district started down the toilet during his time in office. Brandt just finished the job for him. I see NO solutions unless everyone pitches in and that just ain't gonna happen. To many lazy a$$ whiners pointing fingers at each other.

He has Cruella on speed dial. He couldn't make a move without her last year, so this year won't be any different.
