The kudos for the improved performance go to principal Dr Jaskolka, the staff, and this year's senior class. They worked hard and the kids took the test, the consequences, and their school pride seriously this time around. Good for them.

Someone on here mentioned that the kids pulling the scores down mostly graduated last year. It may not be a direct result of anything he did.

Do you think people may not want to live here after reading some of these posts? We have some major healing to do and these rants are not helpful. I must say, I am curious why all the dozen or so superintendents left WCSD especially Mr. Grant. Isn't he currently serving on the school board?

sickofit: Your attitude is exactly what's wrong with education in Warren County. It's about the parents not the kids. I'm not sure what you win. In the big city you see, we have WAEC which will house K-5. Beaty that has 6-8 and then our high school. So our kids won't have to share common areas like the gym, the auditorium, and the cafeteria. My kids will never have to walk in the same hallway as a senior until they are similar age. BUT yes, you are absolutely right sickofit, you have won. You have beat a bunch of 5 year olds at education, congratulations, would you like a ribbon for that?

I think a rework of admin. salaries wouldn't be such a bad thing considering the kids seem to be making most of the sacrafices. Instead the admin. cuts back janitors, aides, and other lower paying employees hours. I'm no college graduate, but I think commen sence would be to take a look at these top paying salaries first.

At $80,000, the super would be making less than or just about the same as his/her directors and principals. How is that supposed to work when the super has all of that additional responsibilities on his/her shoulders? A major reduction in super salary at this point would require a rework of all other admin salaries, as well, and that's not going to happen any time soon.

I make about a third of that. This is not NYC. The cost of living here is less expensive then the big cities. I have a hard time believing that we couldn't get someone for around $80,000 a year. There's alot of college educated people out there looking for a job. $80,000 a year in this area is pretty good wages.

I agree,$125,000 is not a lot of money for that position.You have school supers in N.Y. making that much and they only have one school to worry about.

Really, $125,000 is something we should be looking at cutting. Have you looked at the budget, the number of students and the geographic range of the District and then looked at comparative data? To me, $125,000 is a good deal.

"We are in the midst of an intelligent building plan and we now have time to focus on areas of educational improvement."

Wow - Stewart says the board now has time to focus on improving education. Anyone actually believe that is going to happen? If so, I have a bridge for sale!

You're a hater alright, Mary. You said so yourself. You folks kick and scream and pout and threaten - you get exactly what you want, yet you still complain. And hate.

And finally someone is complaining that their elementary school students have to go to school with students too old for them?

How do you think most people in the Eisenhower and Sheffield areas feel about that? But we don't have a choice anymore and are dealing with the future construction. Do you really think that we want our students going to one school? Yes, they say the schools will be separated but in order to get the true cost savings that they say ($2 million a year) they have to be connected so they can actually share facilities and personnel. Should a kindergartener actually be in the same building as a 12th grader? Do you think that they will actually be separated at all times? If you think or say yes you are dreaming - not if you want that $2 million in savings.

That same person also said that he would be stuck paying his taxes even after his kids are done. Yes. Welcome to the world. You have to pay for for the schools even if you don't have kids going to them. If only people with kids paid school tax our schools wouldn't be able to run. Get over it - just like the Northern Area students and parents have to get over their injustices.
