It would appear that there is a move to eliminate the lone trustee for the North Durham municipalities' representation on the Durham Catholic District School Board. A vote will likely take place at tonight's special meeting of The Board. Once again, narrow minded individuals are thinking only of population when determining matters of representation. This Region, and in fact our Nation, was founded on going beyond such limited viewpoints. Why else would Canada's constitution make certain that fair representation be granted to provinces like PEI whose population and geographic size could easily fit into Southern Ontario? People need to understand the unique issues, including geography, of rural areas such as Brock Township and the other two Northern municipalities. Should the DCDSB vote to remove our trustee we should not sit by quietly. We can speak with our collective voices and wallets. Perhaps the option of supporting the Catholic Board on our property taxes should be removed and all Education p ...

On several occasions, I've asked the Limestone District School Board to address what appears to be Trustee Laurie French's conflict of interest. Her partner is a manager and employee at the Board and yet she never declares a conflict of interest on personnel or financial matters (others do, the Board bylaws require this). She has held the following positions: Vice-Chair, Chair, Chair of the Central PARC, Chair of the Finance committee. I wrote to the former Chair (Chadwick) and current Vice Chair and have had no response. Trustee French alluded to a legal opinion during the PARC saying she had no conflict in the PARC but this is not what I am asking about. My question has never been answered. Now, I may be wrong, but I think that I deserve an answer how one can have a partner who works for Limestone and be a Trustee and not declare conflict. I just want it explained to me. What am I understanding wrong? I submitted a freedom of information request asking for information regarding legal opinions on this ma ...

First, Thank you Melissa Shepherd for this post. Everyone PLEASE READ THIS and familiarize yourself with the content. Looks like promises made to the Province to obtain budget/funding from content of this letter. Looks like decisions are made without any possibility of a chance of any public input. Budgeting begins in March and is finalized June. At least it was for this year. October 11, 2013 Re: Vincent Massey Letter October 8, 2013 Dear Councillor Grimes We are in receipt of your letter of October 8, and understand your concerns regarding the sale of the Vincent Massey site as this has been a very difficult decision for the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) trustees as well. Please be assured that considerable analysis and deliberations occur prior to decisions being made on selling school sites. However, we have been forced to do so. If surplus sites are not sold, the capital and maintenance requirements of operating schools that accommodate our students will be compromised. The TDSB is desperatel ...

The Library of Congress created an exhibit, "Books that Shaped America," that explores books that "have had a profound effect on American life." Below is a list of books from that exhibit that have been banned/challenged. (To learn more about challenges to books since the inception of Banned Books Week, check out the timeline created by ALA.) The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain, 1884 The first ban of Mark Twain’s American classic in Concord, MA in 1885 called it “trash and suitable only for the slums.” Objections to the book have evolved, but only marginally. Twain’s book is one of the most-challenged of all time and is frequently challenged even today because of its frequent use of the word *** ” Otherwise it is alleged the book is “racially insensitive,” “oppressive,” and “perpetuates racism.” The Autobiography of Malcolm X, Malcolm X and Alex Haley, 1965 (Grove Press) Objectors have called this seminal work a “how-to-manual” for crime and decried because of .. ...

May 25, 2013 Mr. John Dickson Superintendent of Schools, Area 3 District School Board of Niagara 191 Carlton Street St. Catharines, ON L2R 7P4 Email: john.dicksonMr. Dickson, I am a resident of the Grapeview community and am asking you to stop the proposed Highway 406 interchange at Third Avenue and protect your students. We currently have several hundred signatures on a door-to-door petition from the community and the number continues to grow. Most residents are vehemently opposed to this proposal. As an introduction, I attended the Public Information Centres (PICs) and have personally met with the Project Manager, Mr. Kumar Ranjan along with several other concerned citizens. We feel that all our concerns are falling on deaf ears and the Region is pushing this project forward at the expense of our tranquil, safe community and the 2 elementary schools involved. Mr. Dickson, the facts are as follows: 1) The Ministry of Transportation states that “The Region of Niagara has identified the need for the new ...

Adding to TEXAS February 25, 2013 - San Antonio For the first time since being implemented in August 2012, the "RFID Student Locator Pilot Program" will finally be vetted by parents, students, and community members. In San Antonio's Northside Independent School District (NISD), nearly 4,000 children have been issued "Smart ID" badges implanted with an active RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tracking device. NISD has refused to offer a public forum for parents to ask question and voice concerns, so TAG has organized one. Presentations will be offered by a number of subject matter experts, including Dr. Katherine Albrecht- a Harvard graduate who has done extensive research on RFID, Mike Wade- RFID manufacturer, and (tentatively) a representative from the Texas ACLU. The second half of our event will offer attendees an opportunity to ask questions of our presenters. All NISD board members (including Dr. Wood, Superintendent) have been invited to this event in addition to the Principals of the schools wh ...

William Penn Foundation Suspends Grants to Philadelphia City Agencies The William Penn Foundation has suspended grantmaking to Philadelphia's city agencies, citing an ethics board complaint filed against the foundation by public education advocates, the Philadelphia City Paper reports.

A letter from Tom Baker, Past Chairman of the Pennsylvania Young Republicans regarding his candidacy for Allegheny County Council, District 1. I am writing to you only after much thought, long discussions with my wife Erin, and after ongoing conversations with key Allegheny County leaders that I trust and respect.

I wanted you to be among the first to know because I hope you’ll consider joining my team. For too long our County Council has failed to protect taxpayers and provide the efficient, cost-effective services many of our friends and neighbors need. The politicians on County Council serve as liberal rubber stamps for big spending policies or they simply vote “NO” on every issue, every bill, and every budget. Neither is serving our families, helping grow our economy, or saving us from property taxes increases and other policies that hurt seniors and taxpayers. I am a passionate R .. ...

My argument is when you have a school board with 4 or 5 conflicted members they are too close these conflicts to make rational decisions that help our kids. This new process will help the state education chief does not get to make the final decision an arbiter decides removing some of the politics out of it.
FOUR-DAY SCHOOL WEEK WOULD MAKE STUDENTS, WORKERS PAY FOR PC NEGLECT: NDP EDMONTON – Alberta New Democrat Education critic David Eggen says a proposed four-day school week in Fort McMurray is just another sign that the PCs continue to underfund public education in Alberta. “Fort McMurray is a flashpoint for the effects of underfunding and the neglect of public education by this PC government,” said Eggen. “Students and school employees are being forced to compensate for the government’s broken promises and mismanagement. That’s simply unacceptable.” The Fort McMurray Public School District is proposing to reduce their school week to just four-days per week to cope with a projected deficit of $4.4 million. Eggen attended the school board’s final public consultation meeting on Monday, where parents expressed their opposition to the plans. A similar proposal was rejected by the district in 2011. A four-day week would not just hurt students and parents. Educational Assistants could lose up to ...

Pob Turf Field Campaign shared Mark Colleluori's photo. 23 hours ago . 16 years ago, today (Feb 2, 1997), my Father, Mario V. Colleluori passed, 6 years after suffering a massive heart attack. PCT President, Morty Rosenfeld, wrote in The Pledge: A FRIEND OF EDUCATION LEAVES US MARIO COLLELUORI PASSES Shortly after we received the news of Jerry Berger's death, we were informed of the passing of another important figure in the history of our school district, Mario Colleluori. There has probably never been a more unusual member of a board of education than Mario Colleluori. How often do we find a board member who publicly advances the thesis that the trouble with American education is the administrators, the bureaucrats who get in the way of the people who do the real work? How often do we find a member of management with an intuitive appreciation and respect for the problems of working people? Mario was that rare board member. Two generations of politically left PCT leadership found this self-styled conserv ...

This was the original email I sent on January 9, announcing candidacy: Dear Friends and Fellow Members of the Spring Hill Community; I am writing to announce that I have officially filed to run for public office, Position 5, Area 2 of the USD230 School Board. The filing deadline is January 22. At that point I will determine whether I will be running unopposed or have one or more opponents. If a primary election is needed (4 or more people filing for this position) it will be held on February 26. The general election is April 2. I have considered seeking this position for several years. When finalizing my decision, Troy and I determined that we will never have a more vested interest in the school district, any time in our lives, than right now, when all five of our children are attending school here. My main intention in seeking this position, is to lend to the board the perspective of the at home parent, and the parent directly involved in working day to day with the practicality of having kids in s ...

How Does Bullying Make People Feel? One of the most painful aspects of bullying is that it is relentless. Most people can take one episode of teasing or name calling or being shunned at the mall. However, when it goes on and on, bullying can put a person in a state of constant fear. Guys and girls who are bullied may find their schoolwork and health suffering. Amber began having stomach pains and diarrhea and was diagnosed with a digestive condition called irritable bowel syndrome as a result of the stress that came from being bullied throughout ninth grade. Mafooz spent his afternoons hungry and unable to concentrate in class because he was too afraid to go to the school cafeteria at lunchtime. Studies show that people who are abused by their peers are at risk for mental health problems, such as low self-esteem, stress, depression, or anxiety. They may also think about suicide more. Bullies are at risk for problems, too. Bullying is violence, and it often leads to more violent behavior as the bully grows ...

QUESTION OF THE DAY: WAS THIS A VIOLATION OR STUDENTS RIGHT OF SPEECH? JACKSON -- The Jackson School Board voted Tuesday night to keep a portrait of Jesus hanging in one of its schools. The decision came after the board met with its attorneys who have said it's student speech and not government speech. Therefore, the district will fight the ACLU in its lawsuit against the district. The painting has been hanging in a Jackson Middle School hallway for more than 60 years, but has now drawn the attention of Madison, Wisconsin-based group Freedom from Religion Foundation, which sent a letter to the Jackson School District calling the portrait "an egregious violation of the First Amendment." Jackson Superintendent told reporters that he does not believe the school is violating any laws, and calls the painting, which was donated by students, a "historical artifact [that has been] hanging here for 65 plus years."
When you ask me to a meeting where one part of the school board policy is discussed bet I have read every one of the 398 pages. Also, I'm rarely wrong. Not because I think I'm always right but because I conduct extensive research and complete my due diligence before weighing in and I think you should too. Our kids are more than worth it and its what professional standards dictate to set the example for them:)
Eighteen people, including current and former Bensalem school district employees, were arrested Wednesday morning in connection with a multi-million dollar theft scheme.
As a West Perry School District parent and taxpayer, I feel it would be beneficial to be part of a group that would have open discussions regarding our childrens educations and attempt to take some of the peoples concerns to the school board. Many people do not feel comfortable confronting the school or its board members as a single individual but may feel more compelled to support ideas in a group. I know a few people interested in this as well and would like to hear some opinions from others.

Here are the questions I emailed Bryant and his responses: 1. Question: Regarding discrepancy in slides from last week’s scenario 1B- needed 27 classrooms at Park, 27 available. Feb. 11th information stated needed 26 classrooms, had 27- 1 extra. Please clarify... Also, is there room in either school (Park and Kings) for an actual art and music room. Answer: :Let me look in the "later" morning. I think the 27 included a room for ELL that would move to SES. (more info to follow). Yes there is an art, music, computer lab dedicated room in each building along with spaces for special education, OT/PT, AIS, Speech etc. 2. Question: Several parents asked about the possibility of having a tour of Park and Kings and Sanfordville. I thought this was a great idea- to put parents at ease. Answer: Once the Board makes a decision on how to proceed absolutely. That would be a part of the logistics pan just as we did when Pine Island was closed. 3. Question: Can you post on BOE website or somewhere that the line b ...
Western Iowa principal plans to fight for job GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) — The principal of Glenwood Community High School in western Iowa says she's been wrongly accused and intends to fight for her job. The school board voted Tuesday to begin the process of firing Kerry Newman, who's been on paid administrative leave since Jan. 18. The board cited four reasons: an inappropriate relationship with a district employee, poor judgment, inappropriate use of resources and being an ineffective role model. District officials have not elaborated on the allegations. Newman says the allegations are false. Newman has been principal at the school since 2007.

Los Angeles Unified School District Approves Historic Parent Trigger, L.A. Mayoral Candidates Weigh In Or Stay Mum Colin Young-WolffElected board members of the Los Angeles Unified School District -- the second largest public school system in the country -- unanimously approved a Parent Trigger for the 24th Street Elementary School in West Adams. It's a first for L.A. Unified, and Los Angeles mayoral candidates are weighing in or staying mum. With no threat of a dragged out legal battle, 24th Street Elementary parents can now move forward with their plans to institute changes through a California education reform law called the Parent Trigger, which gives parents the authority to take over a chronically failing school through petition.

I'm surprised more folks aren't discussing the NY state comptroller's report about our district's lack of financial oversight. Usually, the tax payers care a lot about how their money for the school district is managed and come out to complain--sometime based on half-true rumors they've heard. Now we have factual proof from the state of NY that our tax dollars have been mishandled and that our own BOE president Bob Hill is responsible for witholding essential financial information from the rest of the board, preventing them from providing proper oversight of our money. We need your involvement again, folks, because Mr. Hill has not chosen to be accountable or to apologize, and therefore we are in line for more of the same sloppy financial oversight unless public pressure is put on the board to clean house.

"We're so glad Loralee is running for school board. If you've ever met her - even for a minute - you know that the kids are her number one priority. She wants each school in this district to be the best it can be. While she has kids in middle school and high school, she also volunteers in their former elementary school.

A Message From Our Superintendent: Updating Safety Plans and Procedures at Fillmore The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut occurred on Friday, December 14, 2013. Following the tragedy, the Board of Education and I discussed a thorough plan to evaluate our safety and emergency plans and procedures with experts from the community. Our Board of Education felt we needed to do a thorough review of our plans and make some changes, but they wanted to make sure the changes were reasonable and not reactive. Following the tragedy, several parents and community members contacted me to ask what our plans were to ensure Fillmore School will continue to be a safe place to learn well into the future and most of them offered suggestions to increase safety. We also held a faculty meeting and heard specific concerns and suggestions that needed to be addressed by several faculty members. Our plans to improve security addresses the concerns shared by the Board of Education, faculty, parents, community memb ...
