Houston County’s District Lawyer and School Superintendent are intent on jailing parents for sending their little ones to public college. The Opening Session for Dothan will be in Sony Hall and the Session at the Covington County BOE will be in the downstairs auditorium. Dr. Richard Rogers, the director of personnel for Houston County Schools, says there are at present 601 active subs on the college system’s roster, but they’re seeking for 200 far more to meet the demand. Apparently, it is becoming reported by the Chronicle that a new college board was elected lately…and picture that…they ask questions. And although we’re at it, it appears the recognition of Board members Kris Cooke, Darlene Garrett and Nancy Routh is on the decline.
What we had right now was what Mr. Green wanted to consider versus what the board wanted to go over, consequently nothing got done,” mentioned board member Garth Hebert after the meeting. The college board is absolutely nothing but a forum for lengthy winded individuals to attempt and hog the spotlight…Cooke, Routh, and Garrett are the worst! Garrett is a one note violin who cares ONLY about her beloved Northwest component of Guilford County. Garrett was just reelected and Routh is rumored to retire from the Board after her term is up next year.
But it is now becoming apparent that some on the Board are using the ire of spending budget cuts as a implies to do other items that have absolutely nothing to do with spending budget cuts. GREENSBORO — Monday was the official final day for Guilford County students, but it seems Friday was the unofficial last day. College was scheduled to end June ten but was extended by the college board since of classes canceled in late winter.
Haley Miller, a spokeswoman with Guilford County Schools, said teachers weren’t shocked by the turnout. This was not truly news, and I am unsure if it warranted a front web page story on yesterday’s News & Record…this being the fact that GCS Board meetings run WAY into the evening, some as long as 2am. That stated, some, like board members, question how efficient the college board and administrators can be when attempting to tackle complicated troubles during marathon meetings. School board Chairman Alan Duncan has stated holding the days right after exams and tests was not beneficial.
