Superintendent Vitti just making sh*t up as he goes along.

Oy vey where to start.

He told the Ed White staff it was his plan all along
to move Jason Bloom principal at First Coast there eventually because Stilwell had
become a military magnet and was going to be a feeder school as they looked to
make Ed White a military themed school too (Good God why does the district hate
Ed White so much).

Well at today’s meeting, he now wants to make
Stillwell an arts magnet.

From the Times Union: Stilwell Middle School, which became a
military magnet last year, would instead become an arts middle school, like
LaVilla, something district parents have requested, he said.

So much for his plan all along.

Now I am all for more specialty schools with more specialty
programs and I always have been. We have to get kids interested in school and a
great way of doing that is making it more relevant and interesting to them.
What I am not for is just throwing ideas against the wall and hoping something
sticks or you know, the way Vitti does things.

Also from the Times Union, with my commentary in parenthesis.
Ed White High would
become a military magnet school, taking grades 7 through 12, he said. (This
would be the districts first 7-12 grade school and has he mentioned this
possibility to one Ed White parent). 

He proposed changing
Highlands Middle on Tuesday into a digital media magnet school, moving its
aviation program (which is basically brand new), and then broadening the
boundaries for Oceanway Middle and for First Coast High (he told the families
of First Coast he was going to tighten up the boundaries after they complained to
many non-neighborhood students were going there), to accommodate more students
after the changes, he said.

Matthew Gilbert Middle
would become a medical magnet school for grades 3 through 8, he said, and
Westview would become a veterinary magnet for kindergarten through eighth
grades. R.L. Brown, the neighborhood elementary school that this year lost its
dyslexia unit to the new Grasp Academy, will become a gifted and talented
school run by Project Lead the Way, he said.
Oy vey.

A medical magnet for
third graders, a veterinary magnet for kindergartners? There is a difference
between bold and reckless, not a fine line but a difference.
