This is the best that you have to offer as evidence of incompetence?DW, you continually complain about Dr. Malone but have you taken a look at the high school lately. We have an incompetent administration. They actually spent 10-15 minutes interrupting class because they couldn't figure out why the intercom was beeping. Myers actually talked over the intercom admitting they had no idea why it was beeping so he continued to talk for a while then spent many minutes with his hand on the button so everyone could hear what was going on in the office. This is ridiculous!
As for the education that our students are getting, do you really think that the work that this board is doing is going to benefit the students? They have made plans now to move forward with online classes as a work around for educating the more than 400 extra students that are coming up to the HS over the next couple of years. Do you really think that online classes where students cannot easily interject their opinions is improving their critical thinking? This board spent weeks/months regarding the debate that controversial topics be discussed from all sides but now we are going to accept online classes where we have no say in the matter. Again, this board is ONLY focused on money and now the students!
Wake up - we need a BOE that actually cares about the student's education!
Let's talk about real levels of incompetence that matter in running our school and not providing the level of education the taxpayers were expecting for the money they gave.
Even Superintendent David Baker was pushing for more rigor in our high school.
In August 2008, one of the goals he gave Mr. Malone was to increase the amount of participation in our A/P program.
"#11) Increase student enrollment in rigorous courses (AP and Honors) by 15%."
I think everyone knows how that goal turned out.
The Warren County Education Service Center audit report from December 2010 had this to say:
"Although SHS offers numerous AP courses and PSEO options, only 20 percent students report they attempted to earn college credit during high school. This is a DECREASE of 43 percent from 2008, and 60 percent below the HSTW goal. See Table 8. "
Mr. Baker asked for a 15% increase in 2008, Mr. Malone delivered a 43% DECREASE two years later.
Let us discuss various levels of incompetence and which one negatively impacted children the most.
Vote for the three who had nothing to do with dumbing down our high school curriculum.
Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson.
