Update rumor ! ISDC to takeover handing Pencader’s account receivables and payable! I can’t believe this rumor because this would be subjected to board approval. What about a full audit of accounts before mixing other hands into the $$$ equation? O shit! Just figure that one out! Sweep sweep under carpet we go!!!!!
The Delaware State Board of Education will be holding it’s monthly meeting next week September 20. 2012.
The Delaware Department of Education Charter School Office will offer limited information about Pencader charter school leadership direction even-though they are working in the background with certain pro-charter school organization in search of a new school leader. Rumor has it a new leader candidate will be announced before the SBE meeting! However, I discredit that rumor because it is illegal for Pencader’s board to meet in private or conduct business collectively via E-mails and phone calls. Another “rumor” has DE DOE communicating with selective members of Pencader’s board and not with others. Whatever is going on, it appears Secretary of Education Mark Murphy is working in the dark with Pencader as Pencader tries to plug leaks to the community and Kilroy! Hey Mark, try one of those cross shredders next to your trash can! As reported in an earlier post, Pencader school board decided to eliminate direct E-mail to individual board members moving all E-mails to one general E-mails adress apparently to a board member’s Comcast sub-account. That FOIA is going to get sticky!. I guess that will also help make it easier for the USDOE OIG to communicate to the board!
Mr. Murphy, just because Governor Jack Markell is slicker than dog-shit doesn’t mean you are. But than again. its the DE DOE clones trying to pull the wool over the state board’s eyes.
Pencader charter school’s need for increased legal representation was a result of a decrease in morals in leadership. The only lawyer that helped wake up the community in recognizing Pencader moral deficiency was lawyer the quit aka dropped Pencader.
I am not sure if the new communication wall put up at Pencader re: general E-mail box at someone private Comcast account was at advisement of Pencader’s lawyers but it doesn’t matter. Either their legal team didn’t know about it or approved it. Either way something is wrong.
As many of you know, I support charter schools and traditional public schools. I’ll kick around Red Clay (my home district) just as hard as I did Pencader. I don’t want to see Pencader school closed! If Pencader closes its not because of any charter school critic. It will close because of leadership inside the can’t comprehend how important transparency is to increased operation efficiency, respect and greater support from the community.
No one will invest in a company’s stock if the company doesn’t publish reports that included accurate financial statements. What business leader would invest (donations) in Pencader not knowims their “true” financial position?
To date, no official public statement has been made by Pencader’s school board as to the termination of school leader and the plan goals and direction of Pencader. Will the board have an emergency meeting to address new leadership goals? Or is the board working in the dark with the likes of the Delaware Charter Schools Network, Innovative Schools or Skipper? Is there is improved transparency in the restructuring process? OR will a new leader will emerge with a happy face and more of the same keeping parents and the community in the dark like mushrooms.
I keep hearing a segment of Steve Miller’s song, Stuck in The Middle With You, the part that goes, “clowns to the left of me (lawyers) and jokers to the right( DE DOE) of me here I am stuck in the middle with you”. Pencader students and the community shouldn’t be stuck in the middle with a circus run by clueless clowns.
I know some of you don’t like when I curse. However, its just the best way I can show emotion in text! So here goes, wake the fuck up Pencader school board! Take your heads out of your asses and smell the air, the wicket witch is gone! Open the windows and let the sun in or open the door and take your sorry asses out! COMMUNICATE !
