The artical was taken out of context. The young man thought the money was going one place and it did not.
And the principal has no right to tell a former graduate he can not come back to the school.....
the school belongs to the tax payers..
I QUESTION THE CHARACTER and JUDGEMENT OF THE PRINCIPAL on this one.

There is so much corruption in the Creston School District and many people are turning their heads to it. Why do you think the Business officer resigned? It wasn't because he wanted to. They have been skimming money for years.

And what about the High School Teacher that beat up his girlfriend? This was not his first arrest. He has done this before as well as being arrested for drug possession several times. You can find it on Iowacourtsonline.com . It is public record. Don't they do background checks? And what did he get? 10 days Paid Suspension. He is back at work this week. What a joke! Of course his mom is Hood's secretary, so he is safe. I guess the teachers could go around beating the crap out of people and they won't have to worry about losing their jobs. They will get a nice little vacation out of it.

Creston Schools are a Joke!!! I am actually ashamed that my kids go there and we are looking at moving. I think everyone needs to voice their opinion and make a change when the school board elections take place this November.

Facts Rumor or Gossip:

They are not rumors, they are fact! I can assure you. It will all come out soon as they are being audited by the state. When they are done, the truth will come out.

And you should hear what the teachers say. They would probably know best. I don't think there is a single teacher that supports Hood or Slight right now. Then they do this thing with the teacher getting arrested. He should be fired. The teachers can't stand him. He is not respected by the students or staff. Why is he there? They guy is a convicted felon. Would you want your kids in the same school as a drug user and woman beater?

And one more thing Facts Rumor Gossip - I never said ALL of the administrators are corrupt. I said there is a lot of corruption. There are only a few who are doing it, not all of the administrators.

Maybe you should read a little more carefully!!!!!!!!!

I think you better check your information and figure out the facts. What about board members as well, I think one is an attorney. She's a real brainiac if this "skimming" is true. I am sure the audit will find nothing and you will be part of the crap that continues to go on in this town. I think this school system sucks on all levels. Sad thing is for the few that are good, and I mean few, they are categorized with the likes of the rest of them. This school system has problems all around and I would believe that this rumor of skimming money would be the least of my worries. We hire a high school principal that walks around like he's some kind of god, instead of being decent to people. The PTA is a joke, the majority of people running that are booze hounds. And we have school administators on all levels with inappropriate pictures on their face book pages and yet their are leading our children. Nice!
Question

Who is the teacher that beat up the women?
What position does he hold at the school?
If what you say is true by all means he should not be teaching our students.
I too agree that our system is very flawed.
Alot has to do with leadership and there is none.
The principal at the high school showed just how unprofessional he is, nothing like cutting your own throat with your own tongue.
Respect and character seems to be lacking at many levels.
There is no accountability!!!!!!!!!!

So what are you saying..was he forced to resign or did he resign because he was fed up..I do not believe there is anything to skimming money and those spewing should be ashamed of themselves.
The superintentent needs to go and so does the principal at the high school. Poor leadership...
And the teacher who was charged with domestic abuse should already be gone.
There are others at the administraive level who would serve us well if they would turn in resignations.
I believe conduct from some rises to the level of misconduct and should warrant resignations from the position they hold.
