Can anyone go to the high school secretary and have absences removed from your child's record? Or is this something only board members can do?

Oh no, here we go... Call the superintendent and ask them, not topix. Geez.

RD Ketcher and his nonsense, annoying, flapping mouth needs to stop telling his wife how to run the students and she needs to stop listening to him. That'd be a big help first of all. The school needs to stop putting people in power that have chips on their shoulders toward Stilwell schools. Ketcher, Gilstrap, they'll treat the kids the way they feel fit to. School board of education? What're you thinking? Why are you three out of five the only ones that see something positive in Gilstrap and Mona Ketcher? That's a real question directed toward the board of education? Will you be angry that it's been asked? Will you be offended that it's been asked? We should be offended that we even have to ask, but what do you see? You don't have to explain? Why not? We voted you guys in, so we don't get an explanation? Now some of us are trying to find an explanation why we voted for you in the first place. You got elected and you forget the people that got you there, right?

Basically, board needs to stop hiring people that do things that make us have to ask these questios and start hiring professionals that want to do what's best for our students. Not our school, our students.

The voters of Stilwell School District need to make sure they get out and help get someone elected over Merriot next spring to help Mr. Pumpkin and Mrs. Martin. We need someone to look out for the kids welfare, as these two do.

How far down can our system go before we start in the right direction?

I agree that Merriot needs to go, but so does Pumpkin!

How about RD? Didn't he assault one of the former superintendents? Now his wife's vice principal picking and choosing who the good kids are and who are not?

Mona thinks they get special treatment, her, her husband, her daughters, before everyone, including students.

So Mona can probably allow someone to change absences too. How about if she wants something from McDonald's. Does the students she sends after it counted as absent? So much favortism... Bad decision on hiring her as an administrator.

No Mrs Ketcher is a long way from the problem at the high school. Mr Thouvanel has let the kids run the show at that place, Mona is trying to clean it up. The only school board member I ever seen around there is Chad Smith. As for the whole situation the entire staff from teachers to administration need to get involved, the school needs some major improvments.

That might be true, but some of the other stuff is true too.

Mona does need to put a leash on RD (and a muzzle). Have you ever been to a basketball game? Chad Smith may be doing a good job, but he doesn't get signs on a row of seats that are saved just for him and his does he? Signs on the front row that say "save for administration?" Then Mona and her red carpet rolls out for her, RD, their daughter, friends and whoever deemed honored by Mona and RD that night. What admin were the seats saved for? The superintendent and the board don't even have seats "reserved" for them. Don't you think the VP should allow fans, parents, supporters, have seats before themselves? Guests in our house right? RD passes out "get into Stilwell events free" cards. Why and where does he get them? Doed he work for the school? She may have good intentions, but she needs to straighten her act up too. Or is RD being allowed to do what he wants since he was fired for assaulting a former superintendent?

A Clique. That's what's running our school. A clique of idiots that are selfish that do not have our students bests interests in mind first.

They say Mike Ketcher hurt Alicia's chances at the job of superintendent. Then how in the world is Mona in a position she's in?

Alicia Ketcher was obviously the right choice, the experienced choice, the best choice "to clean up the school."

With or without Mike Ketcher (why he's even a factor anyway) in the picture. Mike's an idiot wanna be too, but at least he doesn't flap his jaws as much as that RD Ketcher.

Those are just a few things I've noticed. So what else does Mona feel they have special prevlidge to?

By the way, between the time I posted that last one I learned that Mona sends students out to tape those reserved for admin signs out for her.

She was the only "admin!" He family and friends aren't "admin."

Do her perfect daughters still report everything they see on facebook to Mona? Speaking of that, she's the Vice Principal of a 4A high school and she has her students on her facebook? Who's requests are deemed acceptable and ignorable? And what are the reasons as to why they are? RD's decision?

She's not experienced or professional enough to do it either.

The school needs direction, leadership. Do any of you think Geri Gilstrap is a leader? Is Mona Ketcher a leader? C'mon...

Was Fletcher a leader?

The rest will fall in line when you get the right person for the right jobs.

What about all the praise that the powerlifting team has gotten. when certain individuals and teams did good or an event was about to happen you heard about it on the weekly call. Did you hear that the powerlifting team got the 4a state championship?
The newspapers printed it and oh yeah school put it on the sign out front. A little word of congratulations on the weekly call would have been nice.

Board doesn't seem to care what their constituents want do they?

Does nepotism come into play? Board president's brother is married to the sister of Mona Ketcher.

Explain that for any board members reading this.

The only thing I can say about Stilwell is it is the same now as it was back then. No name or money or you ain't nothing! It'll never change. My son is in the 6th grade and he already says don't send me to Stilwell because it sucks!

When Gilstrap fails, and she will, only one place for her to go from there. Out the door, out of th Stilwell School System. I can't wait. As far as merriott goes, he does whatever Susan Townsend tells him to do and she told him to hire Gilstrap-on. My question to Jess is are having threesomes with Townsend?

United States

#20 Apr 1, 2011
Townsend needs to go...

Girl's as dumb as a rock. Mature as a 14 year old. Professional? Don't get me started. She should know what nepotism means. She treats kids that she likes better.
