Enough is Enough

To my understanding, the bus barn (at the time of the party) was not employees of the school district and neither was Beaver (the boss?). They were employees of STS, they held the contract for the buses, so that is where it needs to start. I heard this party was planned and yes everyone knew, but at the same time STS managers were at this party. Has anyone questioned them? They are not innocent in this party.

As far as your board, after watching the video, and listening to all those that spoke. Again, why are school board members calling husbands of employees and discussing school business with them? Is Mr. Sawers an employee of the school? No, according to the district website, his wife is and so is his daughter. Why would a school board (multiple) be calling him and discussing what the superintendent is telling them?

Yes it is sad that the school board president cannot control is anger, but I have heard more bad things about him as well. When you ask anyone in Floresville, you find out a lot about school board members. Bippert's wife is an employee of the district. Mr. Meuth - wife an employee, Mr. Shoemaker - wife just retired form the district. Three of the seven had employees of the school district as spouses. Is this wrong? No, but when stuff is discussed at home, I'm sure it is not kept at home. We all know how teachers talk, it's no secret.

This board is not innocent of anything. All but Mr. Meuth, have been in the "know" of all the happenings since Dr. Hunkapiller was hired. Why is this a surprise?

Floresville residents, you need to elect those that will fight for children of the school and not care about who's feelings they hurt, who they don't hire because they are friends of friends or are friends of their own. They need to evaluate why they are on the board.

Look at the website and you will find why they are on the board:
Bippert: "positive impact" FAIL
Raabe: "best education possible" FAIL
Choate: "education is the best investment" FAIL
Pena: "quality and safe education for all" FAIL
Meuth: has not be updated
Shoemaker: "education for all children" FAIL
Carrillo: doesn't have an explanation

Alone the gentleman that talked about the Special Education department. Why is a former Middle School Principal sitting as the HR director? Shouldn't the school district have someone in there that knows HR policies and laws, not just FISD interpretation of them?

FISD voters!! start paying attention and vote all of these OUT and put new people in there that WANT to do good for ALL students and not just themselves, their friends, and their children (which leaves everyone else out!) So much for equality for all!
