The Superintendent and the boards actions over the past four years are responsible for this..our high school is slowly dying while Pam Vogel and the board fiddle around..and what a great job the new Sanders PR firm is doing, we paid them to lose 69 students! 6

  1. God,,,I hate reading between the lines. In depth report needs to be shown or researched. My eyes are killing me all that is not said if TRUE. Question,,,Did parents move? If NOT;;;3 cheers for the economy for parents can afford better situation for their children. Don’t forget the sweet spot here. That means that these parents are still paying the same taxes so there is a itzzy-bitzzy more money per student in the system. Is less ,,,,,,,MORE$$$$??

  2. If I may. The Sanders PR firm has not been hired to promote enrollment. Their primary function is to provide damage control for the actions of my board and Central Office. Once again, Mr. Miles is unable to comprehend the high levels of the educational stratosphere in which I reside.

  3. Sounds all like the the days of W.B. in Texas no child left behind when Rod Paige was cooking the books in the Texas Education Problems. Perhaps the Chairs seat should be disposed of as known. Perhaps the Principals be left do as they do best in managing their own school on focus of funneling the students on the same goal of High School and future goals, and let the teachers do what they do best,,,,TEACH!! So, who sits in the Chair of Logic and Knowledge? Believe me there is only one person there that can. Figure it out people of intelligence,,,,,,but get it right…you will pave the way for other schools to follow ,,,,,, THRU-OUT the State.
