Do East Penn School District accounting methods seem archaic to you too?

Share

It all started with Ms. Donches, a member of the East Penn School Board (EPSB). Her main reasons for running for election had been transparency and accountability. She has abstained from or voted nay on the bill list since early on in her tenure exactly because of the lack of detail and transparency on the school district’s accounting methods.

Remember the alleged infamous administration order to illegally bury hazardous asbestos waste at the Wescosville School? You Don’t? Check it out here. Well, it turns out that the costs for this illegal action were listed on a bill list. It included costs related to rental of equipment (after all it was a hole 26’X30’X4′ deep) and for the layer of topsoil to cover

East Penn Superintendent says we have 48 less kids enrolled

Share

At the East Penn School Board (EPSB) meeting on Monday 8/10/2015 the Superintendent gave an enrollment update in which he said there are 48 less students enrolled than the end of the school year. The grammar police tell me it should be said that there are 48 fewer students, but hey, he’s only the Superintendent and we can forgive him for that.

So as it stands now the total student enrollment is 7948, which is 48 fewer students than in June when the school year ended.

EPSD test, test and test again till mastery

Parents watch out! If you thought your children were tested enough in school now, wait until you hear about the district’s newest plans. At the 8/10/2015 school board meeting the Superintendent announced that your kids will now have the opportunity to reach “mastery”. How you may ask? Well, by taking the tests over and over and over until they do.

This may sound strange to hear from the Superintendent since he recently admitted we already have an over-testing problem in the schools.

Also the Superintendent explained how EPSD will have continuous grading throughout the year instead of just quarterly grading. This is a pilot program beginning with the sixth grade in Eyer Middle school.

EPSD will have 148 fewer students starting next year

Share

The Superintendent for the East Penn School District let it be known that there will be 148 fewer students enrolled next year compared to this year. This total may change slightly depending on a few factors like; moves, kindergarten sign-ups, etc…

This is the expected direction as the Demographic study ,the EPSD commissioned last year, showed that the population of the school district would stay flat and then contract for at least the next ten years.

The EPSD took land by eminent domain years ago in order to build a new high school, that was back in 1989. Too bad they didn’t do a demographic study back then, they could have saved a lot of time and money for

East Penn School Board: Ms. Donches rectifies board minutes, interesting

Share

Ms. Lynn Donches needed to change the school board minutes to clarify a big discrepancy before the full board voted to accept them at July’s meeting. It seems the minutes misstated Ms. Donches, claiming that she said the amount of money that the district would save, if they limited the administrative pay raises to 1% instead of the actual 2.5%, would have offset the total tax increase of approximately 4.3 million dollars. Since the administration got almost $100,000 in increases this is obviously not true. However, had the administration limited their pay increases to 1% as Ms. Donches requested the district would have saved about $50,000. This money would have gone a long way in restoring the cuts to student programs that the

East Penn School District Not as sophisticated/up to date as you think

Share

It appears the EPSD accounting and business office is quite antiquated. It turns out that the EPSD system of accounting still requires a lot of hand work, kind of like it was back in the 70’s and 80’s when each person had to fill out a multi copy paper PO (purchase order) by hand and it physically has to be carried around to the appropriate departments and personnel.

The EPSD has separate accounting applications for each of their 10 schools, and none of the schools are electronically connected to the central business office. This means all the PO’s have to bounce around their school first and be couriered about by EPSD staff from each building to the next.

One of the EPSB members,

EPSD Suicide policy alert, like Common Core more data mining?

Share

The big discussion at July’s East Penn School Board meeting was the new “Suicide policy” (Editors Comments Included). The board will be voting on the policy at the next meeting, Monday, August 10. It was noted that this policy must be enacted before the next school year starts on August 31, 2015. Luckily one board member, Lynn Donches, asked if the parents would be notified of any intervention and/or assessments.

The board president gave a perfect description of the pitfalls of this policy in its present state. Their major concerns surround the necessity to collect data on the student and the questions on family medical and psychological histories. This is very similar to the Common Core/Pa Core Standards data

EPSD children safety concerns. Are they ignorant or worse?

An interesting contrast in understanding took place at a recent East Penn School Board meeting during the personal appeals to the Board portion of the meeting. The personal appeals part of the meeting is the time set aside during the meeting for the public to address the board.

East Penn resident John Donches spoke of questionable votes the Board had made showing the harmful actions towards the students and community; while at the same time favoring the administration. The following are the actions and votes Mr Donches was referring to:

1) The illegal burying of hazardous asbestos waste in a hole 26’X30’X4′ deep on the Wescosville Elementary School Property. It is believed this was ordered by the administration, and all Board members with
