Most are graduates of tiny liberal arts schools like (You Have Cash) that offer diplomas to anyone with enough money to attend for four years. I know some could not pass the basic math required so they took those classes on line and had help after failing them in the classroom multiple times.
The School Board have drained the funds by keeping all their friends and family on the payroll, to a point where the classrooms are so over crowded nobody can learn. They don't offer AP level courses because the virtual class costs the school money that could be spent on worthless relatives of School Board members.
The Coaching staff looks the other way when it comes to drugs and poor grades because if they enforced the rules there would not be enough kids to play. The athletic programs at TCHS are pathetic.
The Average SAT score at TCHS is below 1500 which won't get the children into even an average school. So they are forced to attend a diploma factory which will reward them with a $100,000 student loan bill and a $30,000 per year job in four years.
Four years ago the United States Department of Education tried to fix the problem. The School Board refused to face the reality of being total failures and following the recommendations. They chose to not act and turned down the money to fix the school. They chose to raise our taxes and keep all the losers on staff.
Now four years later our true graduation rate is below 65%, our average SAT score is below 1500 and our children that do attend college are failing and dropping out at a rate of over 50%. But the inbred pathetic morons who are friends and family of the school Board continues to draw a pay check which is all that really matters.
Anyone hear about the School Board secretary who tried to get her little girls C grade changed at YHC. It would seem mommy can't fix grades that are given on merit and not name. LMFAO

Been doing a little research on the SAT scores for 2012. They are as follows:

Hayesville High School 1526
United States Average 1498
Georgia Average 1452
Towns County 1420

There are actually some worse

Jenkins County 1253
(this is where our current superintendent came from!) Maybe the idea is to get down in the muck and waller with Jenkins County!

I got a little sneak preview of the eBook about TCHS. The decade starts in the Fall of 2002. I was surprised to hear about the things that went on in the classrooms in the fieldhouse. It is going to be enlightening.

You don't have to wait. Hellawassee.com has most of the stuff. My bet is it's the same bunch doing this new e-book. The school is a mess. Writing about it is like kicking a dead dog. Won't change anything. Until they screw Kendall in the ground, things around here will stay FUBR. HE still calls the shots at the school and now the courthouse. He can't even form complete sentences anymore or drive himself. But the good people of Towns County gave him four more years to rule his kingdom. Or I should say the election board. Got to love those early voters.

You don't understand. Nobody around here cares about teachers and coaches molesting students, teachers having children with students, teachers marrying students, teachers showing porn in the classroom, high dropout rates, low test scores, dope heads playing ball, school administrators changing their children's grade, Valedictorians who never took an honors class, teachers changing homecoming votes so a friends child would win, teachers sending porn to other teachers, teachers viewing porn on their school computers, teachers not teaching, teachers stealing, retired teachers sucking up payroll meant for real teachers, School board members violating federal law, school board members hiring their husbands, wives, sons, daughters and friends who are not needed or qualified.
As long as the tax money keeps the payrolls flowing for these idiots all is good in Hiawassee. Our Sheriff looks the other way and our School Board keeps lowering the bar. Look at their latest hire, our new Superintendent. I bet other districts were standing in line to hire her. Judging from the past academic records where she work she would have been a top candidate for anyone looking to lower the bar.

Rules, what's that? Laws, Towns County School employees are above them. Ethics, they have none.

Simply the truth when it comes to many employees within the school system.
