Sorry for the frustration you are experiencing.
I do not know every perspective of this situation but I appreciate involved parents. Please make sure that the teacher and principal are actually receiving the emails properly. Due to security and spam blockers, there can be emails that do not go through.
Just to clarify so that citizens know who to contact first. This is the chain of command prior to reaching the elected school board.
Teacher, principal, Director of Secondary Schools ( Dr. Susan Browning ) Associate Superintendent ( Brian Otott ) and lastly, Superintendent Cliff Cole.
The school board has one employee to evaluate and that is Mr. Cole. All other evaluations and documentation are done by the individual employee's immediate supervisor. Legally, the school board has to confine its duty to policy, budget, and the superintendent. Delving into daily operations, classrooms, and school level situations is what often gets school boards in trouble with the state and the law.
I missed the Asst. Super.
All others have been informed of the issues.
Dr. Browning has been communicating with me and has my respect.
Unfortunately the answer is to seek help from the principal.
And again HE has not responded to any emails-the responses come from the asst. principal.
He lost my respect when it took a month and complaints to Dr. Browing and the 504 Director at the central office to put the 504 in place.
He has repeatedly told me he will take care of this teacher and open the communications. But this teacher obvisouly is above his requests.
I have reached the point of grizzly mama.
If you check my other thread you will understand why. This is unacceptable.
Why are these teachers not held to the same standards as the other schools?
We have some EXCELLENT teachers in Paulding County.
We have some AWESOME administrators-some that I LOVE.
Not brown nosers, not principals that will tell you want they need to in order to get you to leave.
Strong principals that do what is best for the kids.
Principals that if they were to have received ANY of the emails I sent would have responded-even if only to say "hey I saw this, and I will get you an answer" or "you will hear from my teacher this afternoon" or "my teacher can meet you on this day at this time".
I have repeatedly told this asst. principal "I cannot support your teachers if they don't communicate with me." I mean that 100%.
PCHS is not supporting the staff, the students, or the parents.
I have requested a meeting today with Mrs. Lyons-I believe she is my board rep.
You have to be nice first. When that doesn't work, you can be mean. Once you've been mean, noone will believe the nice anymore. So be nice, even if it hurts.
More life lessons from Anita:
There are some things more important than physical survival. You've got to be able to look yourself in the mirror.
Guns aren't designed for comfort. It's one of the few things that are worn by men, that are as uncomfortable as a pair of high heels.
Change is inevitable and leading change makes it positive. Availability is not a qualification. Hope is not a strategy. Potato chips are not a vegetable, and hot dogs are not a meat. Feedback is a gift, and anyone who "unfriends" you on Facebook because of a disagreement wasn't truly your friend at all.
