Wow i love haters, all talk and no actions.'blame the educators'- when the problems starts at home. I've yet to see 3 parents actually go to school in the middle of the day to go visit their child during school hours and those that do my hats off to you. It amazes me how most of you who are barking up smoke tend not to have jobs and feed off the government- I mean 'working people's paychecks' and know rumors and spread ugliness throughout the community about people's lives. You probably work close to this persons your degrading, Way to represent Taft. You all remind me of the little league community- everybody wants to be a coach but no one there to teach the kid their own kid, just drop them off with the babysitter "coach." Hope kelly gets the job just so you can have your just desserts./sincerely vomit.

Someone suggested that parents visit the classroom to see what's happening, but I don't think they can. It's my understanding that they can't go in the classroom because of privacy laws - they might see who gets special help or goes to a special class, etc. That makes it a little difficult to see what's actually going on. Besides the superintendent and the curriculum director, probably the biggest expense is consultants. Not sure why there has to be consultants for each of the main subjects when we have a curriculum director and why we have to have a consultant to work with a principal to teach them how to be a principal. Seems like people who are hired, even teachers, should know what they are doing.

go to your kids school, go to office tell the office clerk your visiting your kid sign in, get a badge, ask for their room number, knock on the door, grab a seat and get ready for the day of your life. its that simple! school employees will be happy beyond your imagination to see a PARENT take the time out of their busy life schedule to visit their kid and see what happens in the class room. i guarantee it. you should see the brightness in the kids eyes and their smiles when a parent who takes the time to visit a kid. of course your kid will hate you forever for embarassing them but your actions will be imbedded in their hearts and minds forever. there are no laws stopping any parent from monitoring their own kids behavoir and learning in school, sincerely sancho.

Do your community a favor and get involved. Gripe, complain, calm or excited, it doesn't matter and it's never too late. Go to the meeting tonight June 21st at 7pm.

Unfortunately, Dr. Kelly already has a 2yr contract and if it wasn't for a select few parents and citizens that went and spoke up, they just may have given him the combination to the safe. Oh wait! He already has that. So now our conservative and financially responsible council doesn't want to buyh out his contract. Instead, they want to keep the loser here for another two years. What do we get in exchange? A micro-manager who has run our schools into the ground. Teachers can't teach and Pincipals can't run their campus, because they are too busy creating huge piles of paper work for Dr. Kelly and Karen Unterbrink so they can keep their jobs.

I'm not from Taft but ill say this bout dr Kelly......he works his ass off. When he was a principal I'm Mathis he turned it around completely and helped the campus reach recognized status. If people think they can do a better job then go to school, get your doctorate and become a superintendent instead of constantly talking crap bout other people on topix......cause mr Kelly is a great educator....
