Superintendent Greene’s troublesome leadership style

I was out last week and when i returned i was told the superintendent told us to change our bus release schedule.


I work at a center school for disabled children and everybody rides a bus and pretty much everybody has to be escorted to the bus. 


Then there are a lot of buses and they come in waves. This new schedule has thrown everything out of whack and now the last buses have typical still been picking students up after teacher and para hours end.


She didn’t discuss this with anybody, find out our reasons behind the schedule nope she just showed up and said change it and didn’t worry about the chaos that ensued.


Then there is this , from WJCT about meta detectors,

School board members had a lot of questions for who would be monitoring the metal detectors and how the process would work. A lot of that hasn’t been figured out, because the plan wasn’t supposed to be made public yet.
Edwards originally talked about the plans at Monday evening’s safety meeting at Raines High School. At Tuesday’s workshop board members arrived confused as to why they hadn’t been clued in.
Greene said there’s a school board workshop scheduled for next month where the grant application would be discussed. At that meeting, board members will be able to suggest changes to the district’s grant as prior to its submission, although requests are supposed to be based on needs principals identified. Greene apologized to board members about their finding out about the plan through news articles.
The board didn’t know and there was no stake holder input? Greene just ruled by fiat that we would have metal detectors. Her promise of inclusiveness thrown out the window replaced by her gut decision. That friends isn’t leadership. I am against metal detectors, and I get it, a lot of people might be for them, but isn’t this a decision the community should make?  Greene obviously doesn’t think so.
