I have never met the new Superintendent and am not sure that you have. I have met and know the members of the BOE (with the exception of one) and can assure you that these BOE members went to great pains to hire the best possible candidate for Bryan County. The BOE is staffed with good people that are committed to making decisions that are in the best interest of the kids first, parents and staff. You are lucky to have them.
As far as "them hard floors" are concerned, I think the classrooms have carpet installed. If not, perhaps new "hard floor friendly" shoes are an option.
"committed to making decisions that are in the best interest of the kids first"
So all of you think it's in their best interest to be home unsupervised?
Parental responsibility. I raised 4 kids as a single military officer. I had to actually plan ahead to ensure my children were safe and supervised as I didn't get off work until 5:00 P.M. and the were out of school at 3:00 P.M.
A little bit of planning (a sitter),responsibility, and accountability goes a long way. When school is done for the day, and the kids go home, they are no longer the responsibility of the schools. That's why they have parents.
Think about what your saying instead of just saying it for the sake of it.
Everyone planned ahead. That's why a lot of them became teacher's and parapro's. So they can work during school hours and be home when school gets out. Then someone came in and changed the time frame. With NO notice to parents. I think you just like to talk. And being a military officer I know for a fact you don't listen.
How can you say they put the kids first and then say "oh well" they are no longer our responsibility? You just like to talk. And you are wasting your time with me. If you can't listen, Don't talk.
Sounds like you need to go to school get a degree in education, work hard for years. Then comeback to Bryan apply for the super job and run it like you want. Or just shut your mouth and give the guy a chance.
I guess you're right, we're unreal. Maybe the BOE should send a questionaire home to every parent to find out what time they get home from work. Then, either adjust the time schools get out to accommodate the parents schedule OR arrange for babysitting services for the households that don't get off work until after school gets out. Hmmm, who would pay for the extra labor required? Wait! The taxpayers would.
If that happened, you would be complaining about your property tax increase(rightfully so as it is a stupid idea).
You seem like an intelligent person, are you sure you can't figure this out without trashing a new Superintendent and the BOE. Seems like a simple issue that with a tad bit of thinking can be solved.
Give her a shot Tellitlikeitis, you can do it!
Most businesses who pay employees for 8 hours expect them to work 8 hours. As for all the unsupervised children, a shuttle bus is provided for all employee's children to get from mom or dad to school and then from school back to mom or dad. Not every county provides that.
