There IS NO SUCCESS in Fluvanna Public Schools, only waste and unneeded spending. The new Supt. is even worse than the one forced out last year if such a thing is even possible. The new school board was elected to clash spending and bulldoze that $200 million luxury high school that is bankrupting the county, yet they just keep raising the salaries of the incompetent excuses for teachers. They brought back the same smut purveyers disguised as family life teachers that we tried to get rid of last year. The kids get dumber by the day thanks to the total lack of leadership and ability to teach.

The only solution I can see is the state firing EVERYONE in the school system and hiring decent caring people that can actually teach in their place.

Worst schools in Virginia. Highest taxes, thanks to the boondoggle school. People are fleeing Fluvanna for a reason. Fire the board and elect some conservative leaders!

I will not post my name because I know if I do my daughter will be targeted once again by her teachers. The middle school is terrible with rampant bullying and racial incidents. The teachers do not care and reward bullying behavior. Nothing is ever sent home to let parents know what is going on.

@ Fluco Mom - funny that you are proud to call yourself Fluco Mom, but bash the school system-- are you for real? Bulldoze the $200 million luxury high school? Please direct me to its location, because there are no projects in Fluvanna of that magnitude.
You are clearly disgruntled and hiding on the Internet, be a part of the solution, or of course you could move, because based on your post, I would guess that only your right wing views should be taught in Public School.

There is only one reason that Fluvanna has so many improvement plans that they cannot keep track of them. THE SCHOOLS ARE TERRIBLE! They spend who knows how many thousands of dollars on these planners for every middle school kid, yet the teachers are too lazy to write down what the homework is for the kids. They need a principal that will whip the teachers into shape.

They also need bigger lockers and more time to get to classes.

I know I am opening myself up to be based here; however, there are people who obviously lack information and need some education for themselves. First of all, the cost of the high school is nowhere near $200 million dollars which is a ridiculous sum of money to apply to the structure. Second, every profession includes those who are not as competent as others and those who are more competent than others. To stereotype all staff and make a statement that includes every educator in the county is ignorant. Third, when a child is in middle school, he should be capable of writing down his own assignments and if his parents had taught him responsibility, he might do just that. Fourth, the taxes in Fluvanna County are not the highest in the state - another uninformed random comment. And finally, the reason for reviewing what is in place in any system, whether business or education, is to maintain quality control by determining what is valuable and what is not. Oh, and by the way, the RTI referred to in the original article is required by Federal law which, last time I checked, did not include any funding for its implementation.
Education is something that lasts a lifetime - or, at least it should.

The free spending board members continue to hide the true cost of the unwanted new high school. The base price of $75 million + all the extras like luxury turf fields is only the beginning of the high costs of this cursed project. One you have a bare building, they will want to spend even more money to purchase furniture, computers, equipment, etc. because they will want to overspend on leather chairs and such claiming "our children deserve the best" when they could just move the old furniture from the old high school. Dont even get me started on the millions and millions of dollars in high interest payments because no one could wait until Fluvanna could afford this huge school, and insisted on borrowing the money at high interest rates in the middle of a recession. There is the extra costs of new roads and parking lots, new teachers to fill the empty classrooms and justify the spending, and much more! If people woke up and reailzed how much all this will cost taxpayers,$200 million might just look like a bargain.

If only people had listened before the last election, Fluvanna would not be bankrupting itself with this eyesore.

Not a single teacher is any good. They just dance and sing and laugh about how they are getting fat off the honest taxpayers that keep getting soaked for new school after new school.

Despite all of the 500 plus things I could say about how unprofessional and unorganized fluvanna county is, I'm still curious as to what the "success programs" are and what they are suppose to accomplish - realistically. I think that the teachers are very capable of doing their jobs but rather chose to only do what is required of them by upper management (which obviously isn't much). Its a shame that one of the states largest elementary schools can't pass SOL's, but there is nothing being done to fix that problem... Save the new high school money and use it towards tutoring or something that will actually help the kids' educations. Better yet, use the money for bus maintenance and a new transportation director. Maybe if the kids actually made it to school on time they would learn more!

The problem is that Fluvanna schools insist on teaching the socialist left SOL curriculum instead of what really happened in history. The kids all know they are being lied to and reject what passes for history and govenment classes, so they score lower on tests than kids in surrounding counties.

Reject the socialist SOL curriculum and teach real history and government and that will fix the problem.

I visited one of the schools before the holidays and walked through each hall to see for myself how alegedly overcrowded the schools are and how much we actually need that monster new school. 8 classrooms were completely empty and in 2 of them, there were several teachers sitting around talking with not a single student in sight! I cannot fathom paying some clown $25 thousand a year to sit around and talk to their friends instead of teach, let alone 10 of them! The taxpayers of Fluvanna have been swindled, and the school board should be fined if not arested for theft!

Here is my idea for school success. Every year a teacher has a 100% pass rate on the SOL, they get a 5% pay raise. Every year they do not, they get a 25% pay cut! Maybe these people will finally get off their butts and start teaching.

The schools would be much better if they just cut spending on all these programs and wasting money on new schools and supplies and sports teams. They need to find motivated teachers that are willing to work for much less. The school should live within its means. Cut wasteful field trips and cut the size of the lunches too. If they sat kids 3 to a seat on the bus, they could get rid of a bunch of the bus fleet and save money and gas. The kids and teachers need to learn that the taxpayers cannot keep affording all this luxury.

My daughter hears on the bus almost every week that there was a race riot at the middle school. I'm almost afraid to drive by the building for fear I will be shot.

The sex ed program is nothing but filthy smut. Imagine asking 11 year olds to put their sex habits out there in a surevey where who knows what pervert will read it! Until they make a clean sweep of every excuse for a teacher, starting with the entire administration, it will never get better.
