anyone else here having issues with new conkwright principal?
If you know me you already know my isssues but im sure other people are experiencing stuff as well. Totally unfriendly and unsociable as well as prejudice against athletic kids and teachers havent met anyone who likes her yet and tests scores are down too.

The problem with her is that she engages in the act of anal sex, which is seen as a sin. She belongs in Sodom!

If you ask Mrs.Farris maybe she fire her because she won't let the kids play.

From what I heard the principal the year before was great but Mrs.Farris didn't like him. She will be more than happy to help if you call her. Be prepared though to wait because she is still busy with the mess with football she created.

and i know several teachers who teach just fine with out all the micro management. yes they arent hired to be nice but i dont know of many leaders who last long that do not have the respect of their peers or subordinates. And being NICE kinda is a prereq when it comes to dealing with straight A students and their parents since test scores and attendance is how everyone evalutes the county now

Teachers are mad because she makes them accountable and they have to teach. Scores are sown because teachers won't go the extra mile and teach. Yes she is hard and sometimes isn't the nicest person but she's not there to be liked. Now as far as athletes I don't know what you mean. I've always heard she puts nobody over nobody no matter if it's magnet or whoever. They are all equal. Better than last years principal that didn't give a shit at all. Yea he was nice but he could care a less.
Seems you and I are the only ones of any intelligence, Nice is not a prereq but respect of your peers and subordinates kinda is. I have yet to meet a teacher who likes her so as for the teaching effectively i can see that being an issue although it shouldn't be. She treats everyone like crap no matter of their success and micromanagement isnt the answer. She is a total control freek and has stated several times that she doesn't support any sports program since she came from a magnet school in fayette county. As a taxpayer, parent and volunteer I expect no I demand more from our leaders in our schools. I am sure you monitor and correct your childrens behavior when you can but look at who our children are learning from in our system!

Check out Elaine Farris makes approx. 120-130,000. What makes her worth that? Kind of a joke to me. She doesnt deal with the kids. Creates messes whenever she can. So question the income from top to on down the line. Then post your income since you are questioning others.

I have had another child already go thru Conkwright with a principal knew every kid by name and knew something about most of the kids. He was so easy to talk to, unlike this principal. She has come into this school and just started changing everything. Haven't heard any teacher that is happy there any longer. The kids do not enjoy school because of all the test they have to go thru, the teachers can no longer have a good time teaching because of all the test. At this point you are not getting the best out of your staff or students. Is this the first time that Clark middle looks better!!! I bet the people wanting out of district next year won't be as high for Conkwright.
Thompson, ask your staff what has made them the best middle school all these years and build on it. Bet moral will go back UP

There has been maybe 4-6 teachers QUIT this year at conkwright alone and at least 15 district wide fired or quit granted some were not roque scholars but WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON HERE? It is our leaders like Thompson barging thru the buildings raising hell like my way or the highway stuff. She even wants other teachers and staff to sign in when coming to HER building I went to pick up my son for a doctors appointment a few weeks back and saw her question and practically interrogate a worker wearing a school ID badge. He told her something about having codes or something and showed her the keys to the building and she stated she was gonna change that. No wonder they went all day without electric she wont even let people work on the building! I think there is some room for improvement in everyone including myself and my family but where do you begin with someone like her?

As parents we could all complain at central office.
Just today I overheard another parent picking up their child say, no one even wants to volunteer here this year, you can feel the difference with staff and student behavior is the worst ever. I know a couple parents have complained about language kids are using and nothing being done. Kids are out of control. But principal to worried about test and fussing more at teachers than kids

i agree wonder if the pto leader would be any help?

Site base would be the best place to start if the super won't talk to you. THey have all the power. The power to make decisions on hiring and firing. I know the principal is on the site base, but if the staff is as disgusted as the parents something may be done. If you ask to be heard at the meeting they have to let you voice your concerns. Same with school board meetings. I would speak to both.
like her

#23 Jan 26, 2012
all this is bs. there are teachers who like her i.e. Mr. Howard, Ms. Mckenzie and others. The last principal was fired because he disciplined her farris' grand son.....

Here's hoping there are no rogue scholars left in the district.
