East Penn School District – A Safety Review. East Penn School District goes proactive?

Share

At the April 13th 2015 East Penn School Board (EPSB) meeting, The public was presented a story about how the district was going proactive in its desire to keep the children safe! How? By hiring a School Resource Officer (SRO) or more accurately a cop/police officer. Is Emmaus High School so dangerous that the administration believes it is essential to have a hired gun walking around their hallowed halls?

It appears that when someone working at a school district says, “It’s for the children”, their actions speak louder than their words, and one should look at what the East Penn School District (EPSD) administration does, not what EPSD administration says.

Take the essentially secret teacher union contract that was recently voted

“Hillary Clinton found at the rotten center of the Common Core national standards initiative”

Share

by Bob Kellogg at EAGnews.org

WASHINGTON, D.C. – A veteran educator says parents can thank Hillary Clinton for the Common Core national standards that have been thrust upon schools across the country.

Even though most people probably believe that Common Core was developed during President Barack Obama’s term in office, the foundation of the initiative goes all the way back to the 1980s, reports veteran educator and now-commentator Donna Garner.

Back then, she tells EAGnews Hillary Clinton worked with other left-leaning education reformers such as Marc Tucker of the National Committee on Education and the Economy (NCEE), Ira Magaziner and then-Gov. Mario Cuomo, known

The real slack in the U.S. economy

Share

By Robert Romano : Americans for Limited Government

“You’re a slacker!”

That’s Heritage Foundation economist Stephen Moore’s apparent take on young people failing to enter the workforce — reminiscent of the depiction of Principal Strickland in Back to the Future — writing an op-ed in The Washington Times, “Young Americans opting out of workforce.”

In it, Moore points to declining labor participation by young people at the same time job openings are plentiful. The question is why?

“The labor-force participation rate is falling fastest among workers under 30,” Moore writes, noting “negative attitudes toward blue-collar work,” and young people graduating college without “basic” and “useful” skills.

There are plenty of jobs for “skilled and reliable mechanics, welders, engineers, electricians, plumbers, computer

East Penn School Board President Alan Earnshaw admits “We do know what we are voting on” and why that may be a bad thing

Share

In what many believe to be a startling admission during the March 23rd East Penn School Board (EPSB) meeting, Board President, Mr. Alan Earnshaw admitted “We do know what we are voting on”. The comment made by Mr. Earnshaw came during a debate in which board member Ms. Lynn Donches once again pointed out that she believed there was insufficient information for her to make an informed decision on her vote to approve the bill list. Ms. Donches has been requesting since she became a board member that more information be provided to the board about the checks in the “Bill List” to be voted on for payment.

As usual Ms. Donches request was met with contempt from Mr. Earnshaw and

It’s for the Children (Yeah, Right)

Share

How often do you hear school teachers saying, we do it for the children? It seems so often one may start to believe them. That is until you see the union teachers’ actions that show so blatantly that whenever teachers bring out the old worn out “it’s for the children” statement you should beware and look for the actions before you believe them.

Here’s their Mission Statement

The Steel Valley School District is rich in cultural diversity and unique in its heritage. The mission of the Steel Valley School District is for the school, home and community to collaborate to enable students to achieve academic standards, to encourage independent thinking and to become responsible citizens.

Keep this mission statement in mind

East Penn School District – A Safety Review. The Burying of Hazardous Waste.

Share

This article is the first in a series covering what East Penn School District (EPSD) has done over the recent past as it relates to school safety and costs.

This first topic of our series will deal with the latest EPSD hot topic on the alleged illegal burying of hazardous waste on the Wescosville Elementary School property.

Basic facts:

A) Construction debris including asbestos siding was discovered illegally dumped on the elementary school grounds.

Current Superintendent Schilder said last fall “school district personnel buried the construction debris in a hole that had been lined with clay, in case asbestos materials, such as siding or roofing, were in that debris”. Does this statement show that the EPSD believed that the debris was completely safe and therefore

For Local Charter School “Thinking Outside Of The Box” Isn’t Just A Slogan, It’s A Necessity

Share

On Sunday March 23rd The Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts held their 4th annual fashion show. This years show was titled “Thinking Outside of the Box” and it was evident from the beginning of the show that this was not just a slogan. The event began with attendees enjoying a cocktail hour featuring hors d’oeuvres served by students, a cheese and fruit table, a dessert table, and a cash bar. During the cocktail hour the soothing sounds of a jazz band consisting of students from the high school were heard playing in the background.

Around the outside of the cocktail room were tables displaying the wares of event sponsors, and in the center of the room tables were set up

Does East Penn’s Fund Balance Affect the Bond Rating or Have the Taxpayers Been Lied to Again?

Share

East Penn School District (EPSD) administration and their bond agent PA Financial Management (PFM) constantly insist that the fund balance of the district is critical to the bond rating the district has, so let’s explore this relationship.

It is interesting to note that in the past when questioned about the excessive amount of uncommitted fund balance remaining at the end of every year board members, especially Mr. Charles Ballard insisted that there was no fund balance. That is, until the amount of cash in the fund balance grew so large it could no longer be denied. At that point the story from the administration and board changed, and the fund balance or the amount of uncommitted cash available in the budget was claimed
