Mold AT Manatee Bay Elementary

There are 245 comments on the browardnewsnetwork.blogspot.com story from Feb 18, 2013, titled Mold AT Manatee Bay Elementary. In it, browardnewsnetwork.blogspot.com reports that:

Parents have been complaining about the corruption in Manatee Bay Elementary to the Superintendent, the School board and the School Police. It seems that "someone" is covering the corruption! But is NOT admissible to have the students in a school that is falling apart. There is visible mold, the walls are falling apart, the school is filthy, when are the School Board Members and Superintendent going to take action to all of the complains and do something about it? Mold is VERY dangerous and NOBODY should be expose to it especially little children. We also notify the Superintendent and school board members that the principal violated the Jessica Lungsford Act, by allowing private companies that where not badge and clear by the school district to work with our children and endangering our children. Who is covering for her and why is she getting away after parents have given evidence to the Superintendent, School police and School Board Members. WESTON IS A 65% HISPANIC COMMUNITY WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DON'T HAVE A HISPANIC PRINCIPAL AND THE ONLY LATIN AP IN WESTON IS ON MEDICAL LEAVE AND SHE WAS THE ONLY GOOD THING MANATEE BAY HAD.

There is evidence online that the principal Devaughn did the samething in her previous school.
She stole scanners, technology, and valentine fundraisers. It is public knowledge and it is a fact.
Go online, it is all there. She had to be removed from Lauderdale Manors and placed at our school because of her corruption.

Who notice that April 22,2009 and Sept 2009 they moved her to Manatee Bay to cover the corruption of the audit Exceptions. Now she did the same Valentine's Fundraising in Manatee Bay is disgusting how she is getting away with all of this. Who is that DR. Farrow? she seems to be covering and protecting her, maybe she should also be investigated.

Broward County School System is so corrupt is sad that we send our kids to schools where the top people are the ones that are corrupt, why did they allow her to stay in the system? how can a Piano go missing and nobody realize it? I heard that a custodian at Manatee Bay steals cleaning supply and the principal covers her. Can we get BSO involved?

Then they ask why the schools don't have any money. The principal's and the School Board steal all of it. What a shame I guess that the Gov was right in cutting school money so they can stop stealing.

The superintendent phone number is on the browardschools.com website.
He also posted his email there.
I am sure he would like to hear from all of us.

It is disgusting to see my own colleagues at the SAC meeting yesterday saying what is posted here is not true.
The very same colleagues who she has bullied.
The very same colleagues who one of them is a friend of a school board member and called the school board member to report Mrs. Devaugh corruption. Where is the honesty in all of us?

She is corrupt, it is public knowledge. They had to remove her from Lauderdale Manors because of her corruption and she is doing the same thing in our school.

Why are we turning into two face people when we all know she can't stand us and told us to leave.
She bullies us and has given some of us bad evaluations. Every single one of us talks bad about her behind close doors. We can't afford to act like her. We need to stick together and not support what is not right.

The reason she is being nice to us now is because she is in trouble and is desperate. But our students and our school is our priority and we have to fight to save them. We will not lose our jobs because of a corrupted principal.

We must all stand together and help our school and our kids. That is our Code of Ethics, not lying to our principal because we fear her and because she calls us to her office and intimidates us.

Speak with other teachers from her previous school and you will hear the real thing. Research online her corruption from her other school.

I went to a workshop and some of her teachers from Lauderdale Manors were there and they had horrible things to say about her. They said she had written up almost the entire school. She rules with fear so her corruption won't come to light.
But it is too late now. We all know her and we must see that she is trying to buy us now in her time of need.

We all love Manatee Bay, let's stand together and put an end to this lying corrupted principal.
We are all dedicated teachers and we love our school, let's stand together and save it.

Dear Staff,

Those who spoke at the SAC meeting spoke the truth. You are aware of this. It's those who can hide in here under a made up name without a face who are telling lies, making up stories and twisting the facts.

You have stated "We all love Manatee Bay" - you don't. You are fueling a fire that is little more than a spark, and you are trying to drive your own personal agenda against the Principal because you have your own issues with her. Those are not our issues, those are your issues.

If you loved Manatee Bay as much as you say you do, then you would look for a solution and no hide behind a computer screen. That is only the act of a coward.

Since you feel it is fair to mention Mrs. Devaugh by name, then it is only fair you do the same,

By the way, my name is Livie Locke and it is very nice to meet you. I will be in touch.

Ms. Locke,
Fortunately for you, you are a parent and can't lose your job for speaking up. But we as teachers, have families to raise and we need our job. We cannot speak up and say our name because she will retaliate. In case you haven't been told, this principal told us to leave the school if we didn't like it. She told us she would not change our grade level and she did. She calls us to her office and intimidates us. She is the perfect example of a bully and someone who uses her power to intimidate people that need their job. So don't speak unless you are walking in our shoes.
She is corrupt. She has stolen many things from her previous school and continues to do it at our school.
This meeting that took place today with all of us is just a farse of her, but her tears are tears of a crocodile. She is just scare to death because final the truth came out.
The grand jury has been notified of her corruption and so has the Sate Attorney's office. Internal Affairs and Auditors are in our school finding all kind of corruption at our school. But she thinks she is above the law. We, as teachers, are very intelligent people and she is not fooling us. We just have to fake it with her so she won't take it out on us.
She is constantly looking for ways to make our lives miserable. Now she is reaching out to us because she is lost and she deserves to be lost for what she has done to our schools.
If you really cared for our school, you would defend us and our students, not a corrupted principal who continues to steal from our students.
By the way, BINGO is illegal to play on school campus especially paying $10 to be allowed to play. This is not a gambling location but a school. One more corrupted act on behave of this principal.
Where is the money collected? They bought some stuff but the rest of the cash is in her pocket and PTA gets a big chunk of it too.
This will also be report to the Superintendent to add to her many schemes. Did you notice the Acting AP left and did not stay, because she knows that games on school groups with money are not legit and she doesn't want to be in the middle of this corruption.
Good for her!
If you really cared about us, then stand up for the truth and don't cover for people that don't deserve it.
As an educator, I must say we all feel that our disappointments becomes greater with each passing day. It is a shame that the school board has become a breeding ground for unethical, greedy, self serving corrupt and manipulative individuals.
We are a close staff and we been through a lot with this corrupted principal. We don't need someone like you that is on the outside looking in to judge us. By the way, we do LOVE Manatee Bay unlike you who doesn't care that a principal is stealing from our students.

Olivia( Livvie Locke) was the name of a fictional character on the lost ABC daytime television drama known as "Port Charles." She was the love interest of the vampire character Caleb Morley.

Your analogy with a daytime drama about a vampire is perfect. You are sucking the blood out of all the good things the School, the Principal and most of the Faculty and Staff accomplish EVERY SINGLE DAY for the children.

I too have some computer skills and can look up the names of fictional characters. I stated my name is Livie Locke, not your fictional character known as Livvie Lock. Good try at deflection. I will speak with Mrs. Suarez to see if she actually had this conversation with me on here. Teacher, I don't think so.
