When is something going to be done about the Principal at that school? She is running the school into the ground. There is no communication at the school. There is no standard for discipline. The PTA is in shambles and hardly anyone participates due the Godfather mentality of the way it is run. She has teachers turning on teachers and parents turning on parents. I thought RISD wanted it to be the "Power of One"? This school is the cancer of RISD.

We had heard all these rumblings things were going change at this school but nothing has been done, but Watch Dogs. Great program, but it has not repaired any of the previous problems the school had. Help this school, please!

You are wasting your time. There will be no change there.

I understand this is a very sad situation. Do all teachers actually have qualifications to teach? Is this the school where one can find classrooms that are in total disarray? Is this the school where a teacher can be found way into the night at the school? Is this the school where a teacher has conflict with parents? Will a teacher fail a student just to meet a quota for failures?

Why doesnt anyone question WHY this elementary school is the only one in RISD that is not exemplary?! They seem to do "busy work" and do not focus on actually learning. Its all teaching to test....and they are still the lowest. It makes me wonder what my kids are actually learning.
The principal will not change because there is no accountability. I am moving out of zone when the school year is over. Its a sinking ship and I am jumping.

It may be the principal but have you noticed how bad the teachers are at this school. My son started in first grade there last year and it was a terrible experience. New teacher and she was clueless. Stuff everywhere. She was very disorganized. Glad we moved out of the district.

rockwall parent----I agree with you 100%.Do the schools just put any one, qualified or not, in those first grade slots. You made a great decision in moving out of that district.

My son is in elementary school but not Jones. However, I know several kids who attend Jones. What I hear about Jones is far different than the posts I see here. On the contary, I hear what a wonderful PTA Jones has at their campus. I have to wonder if the ones complaining are involved in the school activities with a willingness to offer positive solutions rather than run down their school in some random forum on the internet.

BTW, I am not from Carrolton and don't even work there. I work in Garland. Not sure why it posted that I am from Carrolton.

With you not having a child in the school, you really can not give an opinion. Hearsay, from your friends means nothing. Why don't you move over here and put your son in Jones since your friends think it is so wonderful. There are plenty of houses for sale. I would love to hear your opinion after a year compared to your current school.

Most parents are clueless and dont know what is going on unless they are at the school often and involved.
I laughed at "offering positive solutions" since those often fall on deaf ears.

Did one first grade teacher fail three or four students because she( the teacher) failed to teach first grade properly? Why does the principal tolerate this and where were the parents?I would be there seeking the resignation of that teacher.

How dare you to make such a statement about Jones! If you knew anything about the school you would have NEVER made the cancer statement. What kind of person would make a statement like that when there is a student fighting cancer there??? I will tell you what kind of person, a heartless, selfish and unhappy one! I guess that explains it, get a life!! If your not happy then MOVE go make some other school miserable! You won't be missed!!!!!!!!!!

I love the school. My child is in a bilingual classroom. I love his teacher and the principal. I have seen great things and have had a few issues about the way some things were handled. Both the teacher and the principal were great listeners. I felt validated and heard.

"How dare you" maybe the person didn't know. This post was originated over a month ago.

My hopes is the yearbook is done more fairly. If you make someone up there mad your kid is left out of it except for what they have to put in there like class photos, etc., yet their kids and their friends kids dominate the year book year after year. Everyone sees it and talks about it behidn their backs but won't say anything because it falls on deaf ears.

"Why" give it up and get a life!! So your post says you are in hillsboro but live in forney??
Tell someone who cares.....oh wait a minute no one does!!!
Stop playing games on the internet and move your sorry ass out of our school. Parents like you are a fungus. Either support us or leave us the hell alone! Marcellus is a wonderful person to work for. We are not perfect people.

What great language----were you educated at Jones?

She isn't educated at all and she subs at the school. I didn't know that someone had cancer at the school because I do not go there anymore. Maybe that person did not either. I travel for my work and my blackberry hits off of different towers depending on where I am at. I don't owe you any explanations. There are many families from Jones that moved to Forney and are much happier, but still talk to families that go to Jones.

By the way, this post is not about the poor child that has cancer and you are trying to make it that. This is about why people are unhappy or feel they have to leave as my family did.

At least I am helping children "all my children". What are you doing?
