Understand your Supt was dismissed in December - but paid through June. Heard he applied in Arkansas but ended up in Arizona??? Is this true???
He is poison to a school system. He poisons every one he's in....... What happened in Yukon?
I'm guessing Morale was at an all time low - most teachers were terrified of him - he bullied some and recruited others to his "side" At least one board member was his buddy and would give him a good reference..... He did pretty well with the money side, but ruined long standing programs because they weren't "his" ..... His main concern was the football team and building something to be named after him....If his wife is still around - he treated her like a bad trophy and was always looking for the next one. I could go on.....

He has done the exact same thing to Branson School District Re-82 in Branson, CO. He has taken a top notch online school and taken it to the brink of closing. His disciples are all single attrative staff members that have no qualifications to be doing the jobs they are doing.
He is poison!

Well you dumb dumbs should of fired him a long time ago. If he gets people on his side they should be dismissed down the road with him.

You are soooooo right. School board slipped up on that on. Thing is, he is quite and actor and smooth talker. Everyone thinks he's the answer till they find out he's the problem.........He done tore up schools everywhere he's been from South Eastern Oklahoma to Yukon to Mustang to Sayre plumb to Colorado.

I knew it! You should see what he did in Oklahoma. Disciples - that's a great way of putting it! He needs to be tracked and outed to any place he considers before the same terrible things happen to others.

Heard his last year in Yukon his office was the janitor's closet. Is he still in Colorado? Can't believe people keep hiring him. Do they not check his background? Does he still write horrible letters his staff? Poor Branson, CO. Wonder how long they can hold out?

Larry Birden ruins schools and careers.
No Man of Honor

Why should his professional life be any different than his private life? He left a wife and three children several years ago. Thank God they managed better than the school systems where he has worked.
He has never met his children's spouses OR his (6)grandchildren.
What can the school systems expect from a man that abandons his family and lies about even having children? They live in the same city as his Mother but he makes no effort to see any of children.

I just ran on to this material accidentally and am I ever glad I did. This stuff is completely ridiculous. No teacher ever had a problem with Dr. Birden who came to work and taught their classes.

This comment is a completly false! The majority of Yukon's students, staff and faculty respected Dr. Birden.

My experience, as well as several colleagues, working for the man was fine. I did hear negative talk from lazy teachers who were visited with about their improper classroom habits. Several of us were glad to see it addressed. But sadly, the bad teachers latched onto the union for protection and their poor influence is still a mainstay in the classrooms:-(
