Since it is the beginning of the school year you need to hold this administration accountable for the education of your children. This action needs to begin immediately and don't wait until it is to late in the school year to correct. You need to confront this administration with how they will teach your children. Tell them what your expectations are now. We want our children educated. Tell them that failure is unacceptable. We want accountability and anything less is unacceptable. Go right to Nick and don't let him pass the buck down to building principals. Your children's building principals have less control, they say they will take care of issues and they never get handled. This results in the same old problems with the same old results. Don't let them use the budget as an excuse. They are punishing our children with their crony politics. Their only reason for being here should be to educate our children. The only ones benefiting over many years from this school district's policies and manuvers are the family & friends hirings. This is a major reason for the problems in this district. Nick gets paid big bucks, he should be doing his job. If he can't do the job to your expectations then get him out of the way.
