Here is what Delaware Governor John Carney can do to better protect students and staff from gun violence and more

Though we encourage our children to report other students who are in possession of weapons or make threats of violence to  school staff. But we must realize the retaliation for being a snitch.  Snitches get stitches is real. 

We need a special 1-800 # for student to anonymously report others who pose such threats. We need to protect the identity of students and parents who might call the 1-800# 

I go back and forth on whether or not allow designated school staff to carry concealed firearms. However, it might be the time to explore this option with providing those staff with intense training. 

My friends on the right my disagree but; In Delaware a person can be 18 years old to purchase a rifle or shotgun and 21 years old to purchase a handgun. I think its time to change that 18 to 21. I understand there are young hunters. However, they can use a rife or shot gun in the presents and provided by someone 21 years or older as do kids under the age of 18. Yea yea , I know, old enough to fight in a war old enough to own a gun. If that were the case then why no bitch on hand gun re: 21 years old? AND we must hold adult accountable for leaving their guns accessible to their children by not keeping them locked up.

Colonial School District on dangerous path re: take-over of DAPSS

Colonial to help the struggling Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security , The News Journal Published 9:27 a.m. ET Feb. 15, 2018 | Updated 10:42 a.m. ET Feb. 15, 2018

The Colonial School District is stepping forward to help a struggling charter school near New Castle, the Delaware Academy of Public Safety and Security

It remains uncertain if the school’s charter will be renewed or if it will be forced to close at the end of the school year.

This week, the Colonial School Board of Education approved a proposal allowing district leaders to work with Delaware Academy Of Public Safety and Security on a plan to address systemic problems that have led to low enrollment, poor test scores and being put under formal review by the Department of Education.

DAPSS will be a major drain on Colonial School District. The is  a lot of oversight required that will consume Colonial’s admins.

Colonial  owes it to the taxpayer to order a full transparent audit of DAPSS by an independent accounting firm.  Colonial has enough problems of their own without compounding them with DAPSS. 

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
Governmental Activities
 The net position of the School at the close of the fiscal year is $(517,329).
Fund Level
As of the close of the current fiscal year, the School’s Governmental Fund (the General Fund) reported an ending fund balance deficit of $(261,534).
