Tell-Tale Signs Of Athena's/GCSD's Demise



Anonymous Anonymous said...
The Greece school district is terrible. Many have chosen to send their kids to Catholic schools this year. Many reasons behind that. Athena is going down hill very fast, security guards at all practices since items are being stolen and the teachers are just turning the other way and letting kids do whatever they want. It is simply awful how the district is. Put the kids back in their home schools and not allow this school of choice to go on. Athena would then not be over crowded and many of the riff raff would not be there. If parents want the kids to go to Athena then live in that district. Teachers moving out f the district so they don't have to send their kids to the school - simply amazing and a tell tale sign of how bad the district is.

Recent alumni and their parent are so happy that they don't have to deal with the school anymore. That is just a sad state of affairs.       9/28/2015 10:37 PM

It's Time To End Supt/Administrative Contracts



GreeceResident1 said...
I'm one of the 50,983 qualified voters mentioned in the post. Like the majority of the townspeople, I don't use the public education system and derive no benefit from it. The people that should be participating in the BOE election are the parents of the children in the district who receive a school tax bill and the parents of the children in the district who don't receive a school tax bill because they are not property owners.
The lesser minority of people in the town of Greece who use the school district need to rethink how their tax dollars are being used. The central district organization is inflated with middle management (e.g., assistant superintendents) who hold titles of dubious importance that serves the administration more than the student body. Quite frankly, the parents are victims of clever flimflam artists who have taken them into their confidence with superlative platitudes of leadership excellence based upon their own vainglorious self-aggrandizement.

Ask yourselves this question; how can the BOE believe the marketing pitch of a superintendent candidate who demands to be hired on a private contract as if they should be considered equal to a CEO of a private business that produces a tangible product or service? How can they grant a compensatory package of salary and benefits that exceeds the county executive or the sitting governor of New York, both of whom are public employees and responsible for many, many more persons as well as overseeing discernible vital services provided by the county and the State?

Today's system of primary education has fallen far and away from scholastic standards necessary to prepare students for higher education. It has slowly evolved into academic mediocrity and political group-think that comes from bureaucrats who justify their employment by creating a convoluted process of imparting knowledge (i.e., "Common Core") simply because it's different and not necessarily better.

The children are being ill prepared for matriculation into a university or college learning environment of serious studies and will find themselves in remedial classes that should have been completed in high school. The tuition for those classes will cost as much as the rest of their coursework and add to the mountain of student debt that will have to be paid when or if, they graduate.

Parents should demand the BOE end the practice of hiring superintendents on private contracts.They should demand the district end hiring executive personnel for functions that rarely change or only need occasional oversight (e.g., Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum Instruction and Assessment, Assistant Superintendent for Student Learning and Support Services, etc.).

The cost of primary education is becoming unaffordable for property owners and will only worsen as long as they continue to allow their hard earned money to be taken by coercion at the behest of the syndicate of doctors of sophistic duplicity.     9/24/2015 2:06 AM

Greece School District Calendar*


In Monroe County, the Greece Central School District is/has:

  • Among the latest to start school
  • One of the shortest of school days
  • One of the fewest days of school attendance**


**  Professional development & Regents days are permitted to be counted by NYSED boosting GCSD's days in attendance to 185, BUT everyone knows little learning transpires when students are NOT in class with their regular teacher!
