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

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

What an absolutely meaningless and unsubstantiated set of allegations and suppositions. Change the title of the post from "Tell Tale Signs..." to "My Opinion Firmly Planted in the Air."

School of choice parents don't care one bit about Athena and it is they that are running the district.

School Districts are run by the unions. They don't give a rat's rear end about your kid. It's all about the money. The vast majority of people who work in the school system only care about their paycheck and how much money they can rip us off for. It's been that way for years. Parents only need to read the union contracts to see why little "Johnny" can't read or write!

It's not the school of choice that is causing this. First of all it is the subsidized apartment housing that actually is in the Athena attendance zone that brings a good percent of these trouble makers in to athena. The second part and what seems to be the bigger problem is the amount of kids that live in the city that are allowed to attend. The amount of shared housings that are complete lies are approved is ridiculous. Not to mention the bogus homeless claims that go unchecked. Watch half of these kids get dropped off at their Bus stop and get in to cars that are waiting that take them to their real address which is in the city. Until they Crack down on this and actually investigate we are going to be stuck with these city kids that seem to be the ones causing the most trouble and making it uncomfortable for the kids that actually belong there.

I find it disgusting how many kids that are at Athena belong in Olympia or Arcadia not to mention the city. Athena looks to be a city school. It is horrible. And yes teachers only seem to care about their paycheck or fundraising for their own benefits from what the rumors are around the Athena fundraisers. It is my understanding that coaches don't account for the money that is raised by the kids as fundraisers. Where does the money go? Where is the audit trail? Many issues with this district that many push under the rug!

GCSD will never crack down on out of district students.

According to MisAdministration they are profit centers.
They also tend to provide some winning athletes and that is what Greece Central Athletic District is about.

Parents are pretty much incapable of reading the Degree they are still paying the loan for, if they can read at all. We are now into the THIRD generation of people who can't read their Diploma.

Mediocre was too high of a standard to reach.
Just take a number and wait. Somebody will tell you what to do.

It seems that folks are implying that poor kids don't do well in school and are disciple programs? That wealthy kids are better students and better behaved? Really?

To 3:36pm ~~ I'm hearing that kids who BELONG IN THEIR SCHOOL DO BETTER than kids who are either STEALING SERVICES, or going outside their attendance area.

Since when does "hearing" mean facts?

To 7:26PM ~~ The source matters.

nobody said it had anything to do with kids being rich or poor. You are missing the point, it is the kids that do not really belong in these schools to begin with that are causing the majority of the problems. Walk in to any of these schools and you will be able to pick out such kids.
