The way we see it, Mr. Malone was offered opportunity to use his educational expertise as a professional in the District office position to implement changes in the lower grades school buildings, including former principal Ms. Cook's building.<quoted text>
As for the "D" grade in Gifted area - have you looked closely, that grade is not directed at just the high school. In fact the Progress Details from the State of Ohio's report card showed that the 8th grade was rated an F in "Reading" and in "All Tests" and a D in Math which would show that Ms. Cook was severely deficient in her duties but yet the board still thought she was the perfect person to define the curriculum for all of our students. And you believe them - how sad that you can't find facts on your own and come to conclusions about the state of the whole district rather than continuing your rant about Dr. Malone. The way I see it, Dr. Malone did the best he could with the students coming from the Jr. High and I think has been successful at correcting the terrible job of Ms. Cook!
MR. MALONE REFUSED TO ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE OF CHANGING HIS
LONE MALONE STATUS QUO doing business as usual, running the high school nd the students program of studies like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand, to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand. This tactic robbed resources from areas of greater need in the DISTRICT! Those who suffered the most were the GIFTED and those in need of early intervention.
The way we see it, Ms. Cook was offered the same opportunity to broaden her status quo vision to the new reform minded VISION of our children's 21st century quality classroom education; and Ms. Cook has proven that she had no fear of the challenge of building on her past experience, broadening her vision to FIT in with our current reform minded board members, and Standing Up with our current board and school district's winning agenda For Raising the Bar for Students and Teachers.
The way we see it, ALL school employees should have the opportunity to "move on up" the ladder of success when their POTENTIAL is recognized by their superiors, and greater job responsibility is offered, IF the school employee is willing to change their old way of thinking about the NEW direction in which our children's 21st Century classroom education is moving ahead, for a better future for our schools and community.
The way we see it, The Lone Malone's Fear of CHANGE, and his doubts that he was not a good FIT with the internal changes and changes at the state level in our 21st century education, caused him to turn into a bitter old man, seeking revenge AGAINST board members Kelly Kohls, Jim Rigano, and David Petroni, simply because the board members were working together to implement the new State Laws and conducting our local school district business in line with our own school district by-laws and policies.
The way we see it, the best thing that those who care about
preserving a shred of Mr. Malone's reputation as a professioal education could do in Mr. Malone's best interest is to advise him to simple stop these attacks of revenge against board members Jim Rigano and David Petroni and and step aside so that this school district can have a Recall on the November 5th election of our insanely popular in the community has been a high school principal with a very POOR performance review.
