Today a student driving in excess of 50 miles per hour in the Athena parking lot plowed into more than 7 vehicles. The student had no driver license or parking permit but, He was back in school an hour after the accident? Several thousand in damages to cars and all is kept quiet.

How does this not go to the D&C. Instead of bashing teachers...how about a Watchdog report on all of the things that get swept under the rug at our "safe schools" in Greece. Ranks right up there with the knife point robbery in a HS locker room at the same place. They send Connect ed home for everything. My husband read about it in the Greece Police blotter instead.

The reason the D&C chooses not to report these incidents is really simple. The VP in charge of what gets printed lives in Greece and more importantly aMember of the Greece Chamber of commerce directors. She has killed numerous stories by reporters routinely regarding Negative incidents in our schools especially. Not good for business especially in the real estate area Get the the picture?.

Many things at that school go unreported thanks to the principal. Nothing is seen as a big deal in his eyes. He hides many incidents from the higher up. He has helped turn what used to be a decent school in to one of he worst.

It's going to get very funny quick when somebody makes GCSD aware GCSD is financially responsible for the damaged vehicles.

This may come via a 50E filing from a vehicle owner or from an Insurer subrogating, but make no mistake GCSD is going to bite hard on this deal.

That's true. Even if the owners of the damaged cars are intimidated by the district (parents or staff) their insurance companies will pursue this. If the district does not settle immediately it will be public.
I wonder if people who park in the Greece School lots will be part of a risk pool LOL. Maybe the insurance companies did not know the damaged cars teens were driving to school too. People don't always disclose that. Pleasure use?
It looks like we are at risk for walking to our cars in parking lots at schools as well as banks and stores. Purse snatchings, muggings at banks, dodging speeding cars in school lots....No wonder the chief needed a vacation. Let's hope he comes back to work rested up to solve the problem of why our community seems so dangerous.

Since GCSD is still crying poor, even though they have plenty of money to hire new Directors and Asst. Supers and give the existing ones raises. The money will have to come out programs for the kids to pay for this. Oh by the way, where were the district's super security force during this?

While I enjoy the entertainment value of the constant conspiracy/coverup theories, this really isn't newsworthy on a Rochester Metro Area level. Media has limited resources and a 7 car parking lot accident with no causalities isn't "news". I see them every day on 490. If someone had been killed or injured, this would lead all the newscasts.

To 6:01PM ~~ Obviously, by holding that viewpoint, you are in the monority ;)

Why would the district pay?the insurance of whoevers car the kid was driving will have to, even if he took it without permission that person will have to press charges against him , I don't get why the district is responsible . So if it happened in the mall parking lot the mall is responsible? Accidents happen in parking lots all the time.

SCATS said...

To 9:50PM ~~ One thing I know about GCSD and their liability is that they are responsible for your kid and whatever happens with him/her from the moment he/she steps on a school bus OR sets foot on district property. What if this kid was missing from class at the time?

By the way, I'll say it one more time, this was no "accident."

Scats, it depends on your interpretation of the word "accident." For example, if a person drives drunk, I've always bristled when they say "He had an accident." When you drive drunk, you're asking for trouble, so how can you call it an "accident"?

SCATS said...

To 10:49AM ~~ My definition of "accident" does NOT include premeditated misdeeds. Driving drunk is ALWAYS premeditated, imho, because everyone with a DL in the USA knows it's illegal to do so. When you already know what you are about to do is wrong, it's NO ACCIDENT.

Wow. I can't believe we finally agree on something! [grin]

To 10:41PM ~~ Sooner or later it had to happen lol ;)
