Take The Day Off For Babs


Supt. Barbara Deane-Williams and Deputy Supt. Shaun Nelms invite all interested residents to join them at the Greece Community Center on Tuesday, October 29 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Guests will be able to speak to district leaders on any topic of interest.

SCATS ~~ This is great if you are a shift worker, unemployed .... or retired ;) It's not as if they REALLY wanted to hear about any problems, ya know?

Well, you really don't expect people of Babs & Company's social standing to work late, do you?

The people who live off the public teet have no clue that the people who pay their salary cannot possibly attend at this time of day. We are working, you idiots, to pay for your freakin salary and benefits. If you really want to hear from the taxpayers then set up times in the evening so we can actually attend!

This is just another PR stunt in which the press will show up and write that very few residents showed up so this must mean we are satisfied with our school district! (This would be Julia's assessment) What a joke this meeting will be.

To 6:06AM ~~ I agree with your assessment. It's just a PR stunt.

Interestingly, the parents who come to me for help NEVER get to talk to Babs when I tell them to call her office. But then, I know she thinks it's not her job to do what her underlings can. That makes me wonder exactly WHAT she does do ...?

This meeting is timed so that there will be many of the regulars at the senior center there anyway. Then Reilich will just "show up". Hey it's a public invitation. It's his target audience now that he will be the producer of the shows under the tent. Of course he will have to give Babs something in return. Quid pro quo. He might enjoy it?

To 7:21AM ~~ Ahhhh!!! Methinks you are likely right!!! What a ruse.

Call Sean nelms, he is reasonable if you cannot get in touch with Babble.

I just found out about this today and cannot attend tomorrow although I'd like to. I only found out because I got a recorded message from GCSD inviting me to take a parent survey. When I went to the website to take it, I read about this publicity stunt er I mean event tomorrow. I can't change my plans but I wish I could because I have just a simple question for the superintendent, who has not returned my calls. I'd love nothing more than to be able to ask her in a public forum! I bet then she would wish she had returned my calls :)

To 6:49PM ~~ Perhaps you might want to consider posing your question on this forum? You never know what might happen.

Or, you might try going to a board meeting and address her for five minutes in the public forum part of the meeting I believe board policy prohibits anyone addressing individual board members but not the super as she is not a board member, Who knows, she might engage you or set up a time to meet her. That makes more sense to me rather than post it here and take your chances that she will even read your post. Hey! You never know. Anything is possible.

To 6:32PM ~~ Yeah, right! LOL

You got a better shot getting chosen to be the next astronaut heading to the Space Station.

If you post it on this blog site I don't think that will work for you. Depending on your problem, I would take it to Shawn Nelms. I know he will talk with you.

To 6:23AM ~~ You base your ASSumptions on what??

I'm not going to post it here because it is specific to my child. In general though I'd like to know how they (school, superintendent, office staff, whoever) verify a child's address to determine what school they attend. I know there are boundaries, what I don't know is how the school actually verifies a student lives where the parent says they do other than taking the parents word for it. I'm not sure why I'm not getting a call back from her office. Seems a simple enough question to me.

To 2:37PM ~~ Great question! When my kids entered school, they already "knew us" from the annual census. They no longer conduct that though.

Sounds easy enough to answer doesn't it? As far as I know, all you have to do is walk into a school and tell whoever is sitting at the desk what your address is. That's it. No formal documentation needed! Anyone can do it! Pick a school, any school. If the secretary likes you, you're in.
