The poster of December 7 clear shows they are one of the disgruntled released employees attempting to blame their failures as administrators on the Board. The Vice Principal and Principal were hired and paid a great deal of money to bring their expertise to Tubman. If there were safety issues, parent complaints, lack of testing data, lack of curriculum, lack of communication, hiring of unqualified or non credentialed staff, lack of discipline, or nothing in power school - ALL these issues fall under the responsibility of the Principal and Vice principal. ONLY!
Be careful when you blindly follow the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.
As a parent of a young Tubman tiger I find it disheartening to read these comments. Since the Board has made tough changes in administration, I feel confident in the future of Tubman.
Knowing what I know to be true about this school and what has happened in the last two years it, it seems that these previous comments with "insider information" seem to be coming from a disgruntled former employee. This year the school WAS being run by two men who requested higher salaries and allowed chaos to consume the school. Safety was a huge concern. On two occasions I witnessed both the former Principal and Vice principal ignore fire alarms and protocol! I attended a board meeting where the Principal bragged about teachers creating their own curriculum, instead of supposedly requesting a curriculum approval from the Board.
The staff that has been their for years is truly invested in the school and has great relationships with Tubman students and families. My child has grown academically and socially and I am thankful to Tubman and everyone who gives their time to the school.
With a big turnover of teachers every year, it is difficult to have successful teachers. Only those that return, care enough about their classrooms but nothing else. Very selfish teachers at the elm. level.
Students are great. But when you have non credential staff disciplining students, there is no buy in or record of students behavior. Not good if students with bad behavior transfer to another school and nothing is noted on PowerSchool.
Not even close. Not when you have inside people, that sit on the board and only get what they want for their classroom and don't care about other teachers on site. This place has failed in integrity....to the max.
