Is he certified as a super? Does he have experience in THAT position???? NO, he does not. The last thing that a underperforming district needs is another person without experience in THAT position to be placed in it. The cycle would continue around here. My opinion is nothing personal against the man but, use some common sense here.

His school was the highest scoring in the county. Pam Hart was over all that stuff the district got wrote up for. Seems like an easy choice!

You can't just hire someone who is NOT QUALIFIED OR CERTIFIED as a super. Just because a person is a great principal does not guarantee that they will be a great super. That is comparing apples to oranges. Again, nothing against the man but, this district can not handle another inexperienced person leading it.

Not pushing for Yaden-sounds like someones I scratch your back, you scratch mine- kind of name but keep in mind L Woods had experience in THAT position.

Mr. Yaden done an outstanding job at Highland and is more than qualified for Supt position. You people and your comments prove just how the school system got in the predicament its presently in. Ignorance running ramp-id.

I guess while you are creating the Supt Smokescreen you think the right people won't notice the underhanded moves being made in school system athletic program. You know, how certain Elementary Schools & Parents holding their children back a year to win more games! And then you idiots have the audacity to wonder why our county is under Frankfort's microscope.

Who is L. Woods? Isn't that the main character in the movie, Legally Blonde?

Now the story is known...you know nothing about the district and its history. He was the former super.

What do you mean? Pam Hart and Karen Hatter were in charge of everything in the district when the board office was ruled incompetent. What does that say about those who made ALL those decisions?

I don't disagree that they were in charge when they were ruled incompetent. However, this was a LONG time coming. If you go back to the 2 supers before Karen Hatter, there was a LOT being done wrong. They just got out before the state came in. Look at the test scores back then and you will see that they were bad too. But, with the NCLB plans, a district has to do poorly for several years before the state steps in. One of the other two took off while she could still get another job elsewhere, and well, the last one got run off because of many things.

They (Hatter and crew) have been in charge for three years now. It's nobody's fault but theirs. They just made bad choices plain and simple.

I was just reminded of the situation with Mr. Yaden. Yaden accepted the Principal position at Highland but felt it was beneath him. He felt that he shouldn't be placed out in the sticks as he was in Highland. Therefore if one will do some checking it will be revealed that our beloved Supt's Office created a job position for him to bring him back into Stanford. His position never existed until then. That my friends tells me he is right in the boat with the "click" that is sinking our County School System. It's about time the citizens of this county removed their heads from the sand or butts from which they have been buried for quiet sometime.

One would think 3 yrs would have been enough time to bring things back up to par, but hey we are Lincoln Co, where corruption is lurking behind every corner & bush. It will take years to flush this system.

Hatter and Hart are the first ones that need to go! The buddy system in LC is worse than it ever has been before.

Yes, even Larry Woods said that things were fine when he left. Said that state audit reflected a current lack in Leadership - Hatter and Hart.

Things were not fine when he was in charge, Things have not been fine for at least 6 years. He thought things were fine because he didnt know his a** from a hole in the ground.

If we're going to keep throwing around blame, dont forget about the school board members. Two who are currently on the board have been there through all of this, why havent they fixed these problems. Why havent they hired people who who can fix these problems.

And dont forget about the people who voted, for the people, who hired the people who (according to you) screwed up our schools.....oh wait, that would mean you likely have some responsibility in this.

Dummy, comment was referring to the past(her time before position @CO), therefore she did have contact. The mentally of majority in this county tells me it's no wonder we are in the shape we are in.

So the last time things were okay was when Theresa Wallace was superintendent? I always thought she did a great job. Definitely better than Woods or Hatter.
