Corruption At Manatee Bay Elementary in Weston Fla.

Jan 27, 2013 Full story: browardnewsnetwork.blogspot.com 477
Parents have notified the Broward County School Police of the corruption in Manatee Bay Elementary in Weston Fla. The PTA and the Principal send a letter Sept 2012 that they no longer would do catalog sales that they would do the duck donations parents that would donate $50 the kids would go to a mega party, parents that would donate $100 kids would go to a mega party. It is illegal to exclude kids because the parents cannot afford to donate $100 and the principal was advised that parents where not happy about it and she promised the parents that she would include all the children. Oct 31,2012 Manatee Bay had the Mega party it was during school hours and ONLY the children that paid $100 where allow to go to the cafeteria and enjoy the party with the Miami Heat getting souvenirs, pizza and dance. The kids that parents send cash did not get invited since any cash that goes into Manatee Bay disappears. That is DISCRIMINATION, what do we want to teach our children? that ONLY the children that parents have money can go to parties and enjoy the school? do we want the kids to be separated the rich kids and the poor kids they have to be punish because the parents cannot afford to donate $100 is that a good example?

Then can you please explain why my daughter was not allowed to go to the "Mega party"?
I send $25 cash that was all I could send and my daughter had to stay in her class. Who ever is posting for the PRA and defending the principal must be in the corruption. I am dropping my daughter now and what a joke the marquee stating "we support Manatee Bay and the PTA" who is we? 90% of the parents do not approve the PTA corruption and want the principal out.

Pilar my son also donated $30 and nobody invited him to any party. Is so sad that the school can separate the children that way. In my country they don't do that. I saw today the post about we support manatee bay and the pta who put that there?

I have always thought that the PTA sees the school as their own personal business. The last president thought she owned the school. I always wondered where all the money went because I never saw any new programs nor new equipment for all the programs and money they collected. I used volunteer, but don't do it anymore because I got tired of seeing how pretentious all of the PTA Board is.
As far of being a good school, I agree, however, the majority of the kids at Manatee Bay have either private tutors or attend tutoring programs or Kumon.

BTW where is the Assistant Principal? She has disappeared.

The AP is on medical leave, that's what the office told us. I am sure that of she was there none of this stuff would be going on. My kids teacher told me that the principal does not allow them to call or contact the AP

These are such lies.
1. The principal has NOT told anyone they can not contact the AP.
2. The Mega Party is no different than any other fundraiser we have held here. There ARE ALWAYS certain things in place: you sell this much, you get this.
3. Everyone KNOWS this whole thing was started by one person...and everyone KNOWS who that one person is.
4. Manatee Bay stands behind their PTA and their principal. Is the principal perfect? No, but then again, who is? She may do things here at school that are not always popular. All leaders do. Does anyone here, believe the principal is corrupt, no.
5. Get a life. If things are so much better in YOUR country, why are you here?

I want all to know that as teachers we are in our classrooms and really don't know what is going on. Unless you are part of her team, they do not disclose wrong doing to any of us.
We have been asking for a long time where is the money since we don't have anything for our students. We have written faculty council concerns and no reply from this principal. We have written in our team notes, and no answer from this principal.

So yes, we want her removed because she is not giving our students or us what we need.

Whoever wrote the above comment is part of her corrupted team and making money of the fundraisers along with her.

As a teacher in this school, the principal told me personally that no one was to contact the AP. We really don't know why because we were all very close to her.

PTA is getting paid for their services and we have this on tape when she told some of us herself.

We have the names of all the volunteers that are getting paid and doing the work that jaime vital reading coach should be doing herself. But we are not allowed to talk because the principal will retaliate against us.
We have written to faculty council about this but again no reply.

Those defending her in this site are getting paid by the pta and principal and they stand to lose their license because of taking money from school funds.

Maybe those running certain events are pocketing the money? If so how would the Principle know? Who checks the accounting for Club 205 and other events? How many parents pay with cash?
the principal checks the money because she is suppose to get a percentage back but she is keeping it and not giving it back to our school.

how come principal got a new car and so did the reading coach when they are both broke and the reading coach husband lost his job and now is working for minimum wage. this splurging started when cash fundraising started at our school!!!!!

This is the WORST principal this school has ever seen. She is ruthless, corrupted and vindictive.

Again, we can't speak up. Too many people involved in this scheme.

Why doesn't the principal go back to Jamaica? and you to DR and all the other people that are corrupt to their country? you are a bully just like them and a liar just like them and a thief just like them, and ALL fundraisers GIVE kids TOOLs to help them SELL THIS WAY A DONATION NOTHING TO SELL JUST BUY DUCK SO YOU GUYS COULD STEAL THE MONEY.

You are obviously a parent that is not in school to see the corruption.
Try to visit and stay in the school more often and you will see everything negative posted here is the truth. We have never done this before but this has never happened in the 5 years my kids have been at this school.
Shame on all of you for covering up corruption. This too will go to the grand jury and then you will see the truth, just like what happened to the school board a few years ago.

There has been research on her other school and it is public knowledge. Get online and do the research and you will see she was written up for again corruption at her school with scanners, technology and valentine fundraisers. Get the facts before you speak up. We don't disclose slander, this is fact and evidence. Again, do research and you will see all she did in her other school. That is the reason why they had to remove her from Lauderdale Manors.
