GCSD Admin. Out Of Touch With Reality

  
"The schools are absolutely safe and secure for students and staff. The Athena incident (three fights in two days) was unfortunate... but it doesn't reflect Greece Central at all." ~~ Shaun Nelms, deputy supt.

SCATS~~ I wonder how Mr. Nelms would explain the messages I get from parents, students & district employees concerning:
  • police calls to the schools;
  • fights in the schools and on buses;
  • parents complaining about ongoing bullying by students in classrooms despite attempted intervention;
  • reports about weapons confiscated by staff; 
  • parents who report recieving 4-5 calls per week from their children's building to update them about various incidents?
I am personally aware of a growing number of parents who have REMOVED THEIR CHILDREN FROM GREECE SCHOOLS SINCE SEPTEMBER. Why? Because they WERE NOT SAFE!

Subject: You were warned

I have had it. This morning I noticed a new wrinkle on my lovely face caused by stress.

Dammit, I didn't take this job to wind up looking like a boardmember who trowls her makeup on. 93% of my stress is caused by a damn cat with a computer. This crap is NOT going to continue!

I camefrom a District where cats are routinely shot, and my contract says I am absolutely not responsible for anything.
I am therefore soliciting donation of 3 cat hating DOGS to hunt down and chew up one particular puttitat who gives me crap.

My highly skilled staff is on it.
No more nice Babs

To 9:03AM ~~ Oh I try, but it's a challenge to stay on top of ALL of the different scandals brewing in this town AND keep up with common "news" too ;)

The tell all for me are the resident Greece teachers who send their own kids to private schools. I'm not talking about those who, for religious reasons, start their children in religious based schools from day one. It's those who pull their kids from Greece for middle or highschool. The school experience they provide to Greece is good enough for our kids, but not their own. To call them hypocrites would be too kind.

To 12:01PM ~~ I agree! I've overheard Greece teachers belittling Greece schools, saying they would never permit their own little darlings to set foot in one ... all the while contributing to the issues.

Why is the Director of Security still employed? There seems to be little security for our kids while he sit on his fanny collecting a nice salary and a NYS pension from his days as a RPD employee.

The director of security is a joke! He doesn't even have anything to direct, all the security guards were taken away from him, they are supervised by the building principals. He brags about doing nothing and collecting a nice fat pay check. Shouldn't be too long and Bab's will catch on and he'll be gone.

If it is true that the security staff is directed at the building level it would seem that the Director's salary and benefits would be $100K plus reduction in the budget.

The cats out of the bag.....the new dog is named Chip. After Webster Lt. Chipperini.

All my kids went to Greece schools, all 12 years. One of the most common sources of trouble was... the kids of teachers. They get into fights, break rules, and generally act like they own the place because they live in a consequence-free environment, both at school and at home (child-related professionals make the worst parents!).

So if the teachers want to take their kids out of school, on balance that's better for the rest of us. Cuts back substantially on the discipline and behavior problems.

If there was one improvement to be made it would be hiring more male teachers, and allowing them some leeway with discipline, especially of male students. Nothing like we experienced in the supposedly dark ages of the 60s and 70s, of course, but a toned-down version for the cellphone and social media generation.
