maybe mr. administrator the first step towards excellence would be to have a real discussion board with various topics again instead of locking up everything u do not like. Maybe we could achieve excellence when someday (probably not in my lifetime though) there is true communication between your office and parents. Maybe we can achieve excellence when kids can go to schools in their areas instead of getting shipped across town to accomodate the very special charter school kids. Where is the anti suicide and anti bullying plan for the contract of excellence? Or don't the kids who get bullied and threatened matter? Maybe excellence will be achieved when there is some administration turnover and new ideas. Right now, way too many kids are getting left behind, kicked to the curb and too far behind.

PostSubject: Extended Day Programs   Mon 20 Jul 2009, 11:58 am

What are the extended day programs that will be maintained? I was not aware of one last year at Yates. There was one the year before run by Mr. Roe, but not last year. I asked about it and the school told me it had been cut.

A:

The Extended Day Program is scheduled to run four days per week (between Monday and Friday) immediately after school for one hour at the elementary school level and one and a half hours per day at the secondary level. This program targets students who have not performed well on the state tests in English Language Arts or Mathematics. It is also available to help children with their homework if necessary. The program varies from school to school. Please contact your building principal for specifics about the program at your school.

PostSubject: extended day program   Wed 22 Jul 2009, 9:30 pm

To Mom to my kids,
I can understand your frustration with not being able to find out what schools have extended day programs and find it horrifying that the district as a whole does not have that information readily available for parents. How can their be equality between schools if no one has a master list of the extras provided? Maybe the COE money could be used to train upper level administration how to track data in schools and how to communicate with parents. On a positive note, when I asked about field trip money and college visits last year at the high school level and was shut out by upper level administration, Mr. Comley took the time to personally gather all of the data from the house principals and shared it. Too bad all administrators did not have his communication skills.

PostSubject: Why not clean the discussion board up   Tue 23 Mar 2010, 1:08 pm

Why not go through and delete some of the postings on the discussion board, including some of mine to try to increase the odds of success for Superintendent Ely's job search? With this board being open to anyone to view, including school board members in other communities, it should be cleaned up to eliminate the old controversial postings.

I wish the superintendent the best and hope he is successful soon with his relocation attempts.
