Im not sure how to start a new thread, but I was told today that Greece is looking to hire a new AD??? Is there truth to this?? If so which AD is leaving?? Hopefully its Bev Ziegler after her mess with the Athena Varisty Boys SOccer team and not subitting proper paper-work on the transfer in from Aquinas. Anyone???

I have heard it is to replace Mr. Jeff McKinney, who was fired and walked to the door by security awhile back. Apparently there was a personality conflict with the principal. All of that after losing a very young child to cancer. Very sad for him.

I would bet it is for Arcadia...there is and interim AD.

Great place to work. Losing a child to cancer and the compasion of his principal - priceless

To all in the above posts, I have a few questions for you all, so easy to judge without any facts. The only factual statements in the above posts are that he lost a child to cancer and that he was walked to the door by security, which is a routine procedure for all employees who are terminate. I don't have all the facts myself, but I can factually tell you that it was not a personality conflict that was the culprit in Mr. McKinney's termination, but rather information that only a few are privy to. I can say with certainty that working for many years in the Arcadia building that there was a due process and that the administrators, specifically Flick, are looking out for the best interests of the students. This is what it is all about, the best interest of the students. Here are some tidbits of information that would warrant an immediate dismissal: Unethical behavior, theft, immoral behavior, etc. Mr. McKinney was not a tenured administrator and therefore before becoming tenured and dealing with all the "baggage" it was probably determined that it was in the best interest of everyone to let Mr. McKinney pursue other interests. Please if you are going to make statements about people and their conduct that it is done with factual information and not opinion.

To 2:34PM ~~ It's obvious by your wording that you don't have all of the facts either! Example: "it was probably determined ..."

Please don't try to tell us you are one of the select few who were privy to what happened. And FYI, unethical behavior occurs frequently inside GCSD with no repercussions ... if you are on the right side of the conflict ;)

Scats, you are right. I do not have all the fact either, but I do know that there is more to the story than some cold hearted principal firing McKinney for a personality conflict. The fact is that there is more to this story that you or I will ever know, but to make a blanket statement like some in the previous posts is irresponsible and naive.

To 7:28PM ~~ With all due respect, how can you know there is more to the story when you admitted you don't know the story? I'm just sayin' ...

With a due respect, please don’t tell me what I said. What I said is that I don't have ALL the facts ( which means that I have some of the facts) but I am privy to information and I can tell you that it wasn't a personality conflict. Mr. McKinney wasn't doing his job and therefore relieved of his responsibility. Would you want someone that is not competent doing the job of AD? Isn't that what you look out for, the taxpayer? The Greece taxpayers were spared of someone not performing the job the way it should be done. He was relieved of his responsibility prior to him being tenured. That is what probationary period is all about. It protects the school district from dealing with a 3020A later on, which can be a very lengthy and costly course of action. Sometimes the decisions are not easy, but the responsibility of an administrator is not easy. I mean no disrespect to Mr. McKinney. I actually feel for him and his family. These things are never easy.

To 6:42PM ~~ Unless you are the principal in question (which I highly doubt) you can't know whether personality played a part in it or not. It might look like it didn't, but you don't really know. I somehow doubt the person would admit it even if it was "the" reason. Agreed?
