To 7:18AM ~~ We provided the link to the GCSD document posted. Here it is again:

For anything more, you will likely need to FOIL the info. Good luck!!

Yep, I resent every effing dime I have to send in to these phonies. Nothing but contempt for the BOE as well.

According to the 2015 Youth Risk Behavior Survey, 16% of Greece HS students have been offered illegal drugs ON SCHOOL PROPERTY!

The other 84% are doing the asking!

To 1:37PM ~~ Would you be surprised??

Kids are offered illegal drugs on almost all school campuses. I am not saying it is good but Greece is probably no worse than other school districts.

SCATS said...

To 4:09PM ~~ Out of curiosity, why do you believe it's "no worse"? Quite possibly it is.

Where does Greece rank in the County's District by District list of STDs detected?

Hilton was the top of the list a few years back..

It's worse in wealthier districts where kids have access to money and parents' prescription drugs.

SCATS said...

To 10:02PM ~~ Great question. I've never seen stats on that.

What about the kids who come to school already under the influence? And the parents who refuse to allow their "snowflakes" locker to be searched or sniffed?

SCATS said...

To 9:47AM ~~ The parents do NOT have the right to refuse a locker search since the locker is GCSD property. Besides, admin. NEVER asks for such requests, they just carry it out.

I'm not at all surprised, I work there and have been asked!

8/11/2015 4:09 PM You're right. The numbers are probably realistically about at 80% usage rate in any school. "I tried it once" means you count in the statistic. In the 70's, we were about 90%! The crap came out of rural communities!

The Hilton STD statistic was confused with the upswing in reported swine and bovine flu - it is transmitted by seminal, vaginal, and oral fluids! Us suburban kids had a name for that which went on out in the sticks, we learned about it from our teachers in GCSD health classes, we also learned about incest! Another rural blight! Y'all remember you heard it here - if you divorce her, and she's your sister, she's still your sister!!!

SCATS said...

To 6:16PM ~~ TY for speaking up and attempting to CONFUSE the issues.

The comment by 4:09PM addressed the question raised in the survey: the number of students OFFERED illegal drugs on school property. That is not the same thing as trying them! But then, you knew that ;)

Bit late to the party, but. This is nothing but a bunch of lies!!!!! There's a sign on Greece Olympia property off Olympia Dr that clearly states. "This is a drug free school". So there! Speak the fantasies elsewhere.

SCATS said...

To 8:53PM ~~ I believe that same sign is posted in front of Odyssey and our other middle & high schools. There are signs that also say "No skateboarding" ... but we know there is.
