Another School Year, Another New Building Principal


I've heard that some buildings have their 4th new principal in just 6 years!

What's driving the apparent high turnover rate among Greece Principals?

What can be done to ebb the flow?

I know two elementary principlas retired , so obviously they needed to be replaced. That doesn't realy seem odd. As far as there being new ones in the High Schools I haven't heard.

Perhaps the more interesting story is the all-to-regular shell game the district plays with it's troubled staff. "Everyone welcome Mrs. So & So to our (blank) school family"- oh yea, because she was having an affair with the VP at (blank) school. "Everyon welcome..."- Yea, because he/she had nothing but parents complaining about them at (blank) school. Happens ALL the time! So the minute your child comes home, excited about a super nice, new teacher at the school, start asking around to get the REAL story.

To 10:23AM ~~ Ahhh yes! Because once they have tenure, they have a job for life, regardless their behavior, performance, etc. Barring a felony conviction, there's little that can be done ... other than passing the problem to another building or unsuspecting district.

Has anyone given any thought to the fact your school district is viewed as poison? Not because of the staff, because of people like SCATS. All you people do is complain and whine and blame other people. Anyone worth a damn gets out of Greece to work for reasonable people. The kids all have behavior problems, and the parents want someone else to raise their own children. Heres a thought, try supporting your education system, to make a .......wait for it....... POSITIVE CHANGE. Discipline your little hellions when they misbehave, be a parent and for gods sake SCATS has nothing to do with the word Smarter! By the way I won't be surpride when this does not get published or is blocked by SCATS
