When we first moved to this community, I had high hopes that my kids would receive the help and teaching they needed, deserved, but weren't getting at the schools in the district where we had lived previously. And they absolutely did. Within just a few months my older child had the IEP he had been denied in that other district, and was finally receiving the help he needed. Both of my children were excelling in their new environment. The next year, Dr Miles took over, and things changed a great deal. I was a frequent volunteer and suddenly I wasn't allowed to volunteer in my children's classes any longer. I was made to feel extremely unwelcome whenever I went in and once was even told to LEAVE rather forcefully by Dr Miles, when all I was trying to do was pick up one of my kids. He went out of his way to alienate parent volunteers and has made many of the better teachers quit simply because of the way he treated them. My children went from loving school to begging to be homeschooled on almost a daily basis. While this was a good school that was on the rise, under this dictator's rule, it is swiftly going downhill!

Hm. Im wondering if the ones who are complaining about this school might be our most dedicated VOLUNTEERS. Uh, no. How silly. The ones complaining about poor schools, poor teachers, "having" to give a dollar for their child to wear jeans, etc, etc, blah blah blah. Are the ones that dump thier children at school to be raised by the staff. You will complain about the school trying to raise money, yet are you one of thoes parents who readily takes advantave of "free" bussing, "free" meals. "free" after school programs? Not to mention "free" education. Wake up, instead of sitting back and finding things to complain about, GET INVOLVED with your childs education. HELP your teachers to meet your "expectations".

The school allows the students to pay a dollar to wear what they want because of the money it takes to keep this school running. If there were no fundraisers, the journalism class would have to be cut because making yearbooks aren't cheap. A lot of the clubs and extracurricular classes need money to help keep them going. It's not like the school just wants money to keep for themselves. And many of the students want to wear something different every once in a while so there's no harm in paying 1 dollar every once in while to wear something different. Paying 1 dollar is helping the students, not putting the money in the staffs' pockets.

Madison County Central School does everything they can to try to get a dollar out of the parents, including to allow the child to go against the school uniform that the school pushed so hard to pass as long as the child pays the school a dollar to wear other clothing. I am fed up with this greedy school ! They are here for the money and not the children.
