Signs Whistle Blower Policy Isn't Working

Scats,
I have tried the Whistle Blowers hotline several times but to no avail. After waiting three days and calling back, it always tells me that Ann Mitchell needs more information and I should contact her directly. Why would I do that? What exactly does that protect?    7/16/2010 12:07 PM

Ann Mitchell is where the buck stops? OMG! What if she's part of the problem that you're reporting!?!

Why wouldn't a representative of the Board of Education be the person?

This is t-h-e reason why to n-o-t trust the system. Just shut up and keep your head down. Bullying at DO is ALIVE AND WELL!    7/17/2010 10:25 AM

SCATS ~~ I've continued to receive such comments on a regular basis since the BOE adopted and instituted their Whistle Blower policy. Clearly, telling someone to contact Ann Mitchell directly is NOT the way to handle things, especially not if you want to address complaints and fix what's broken.

They are just hoping that the whistle blowers are stupid enough to identify themselves, so that they can get rid of them.
This just proves that the do- nothing Administration,Department Managers and Directors are the ones who need to do their jobs or get canned.

To 3:58PM ~~ Sadly, you may be correct. Often there seems to be an appearance of change without any substance of change. I think that's what's happened with this Whistle Blower policy. Those who don't learn from the past are condemned to repeat ... maybe that should be Greece's new motto.

Until they put this in outside hands to deal with, they will never be trusted. The boe isn't competent or trustworthy themselves.

The BOE is currently interviewing Chad Rahn for the position.

Is the BOE addressing any of this or is the new board leadership proving to be a complete failure too?
