And for a differing view...the largest public works project since the federal highway system...and they aren't sure why elementary kids improved but high schoolers didn't. Except they suspect it's because the younger teachers were attracted to the new elementary schools. http://newscenter.berkeley.edu/2012/08/14/la-unif...

Why would anyone want to actually investigate something by checking facts? It is so much easier to just press "share" or "forward" and keep spreading those rumors and lies. Or for some of the "trolls" - more fun to just say outrageous things to get a reaction.

Quincy School District looking for another administrator

Krista Finklea is leaving as principal at Dewey Elementary

Add the need for a principal to the Quincy School District’s list for this summer.

At next Wednesday’s Quincy School Board meeting, the School Board will accept the resignation of Dewey Elementary Principal Krista Finklea. Finklea and her family are moving to Florida where her husband, Josh, will be involved in starting a church in New Smyrna Beach.  

Krista Finklea was an assistant principal at Quincy High School before taking the Dewey position. Josh Finklea has also been an assistant with the Quincy High School and Junior High football programs as well as the Quincy Youth Football League over the last decade.

The School Board hired a new superintendent, Steven Cobb, on February 1. There are three other Board Office administrators leaving: Assistant Superintendent Christie Dickens and Director of Title One/ Testing/ Technology Jody Cooper are retiring and Assistant Superintendent Trish Sullivan-Viniard has accepted a superintedent's position in the Chicago suburbs. The District will fill two of those positions.

Business Manager Joel Murphy is serving as interim Superintendent and former Business Manager Rich Royalty is serving as interim business manager until Cobb starts this summer. Murphy will also be the IT Director along with his business manager duties once Cobb is in place.

The Quincy School District is looking at about $400,000 in life safety projects this summer.

The bulk of the work will consist of replacing fire alarms and systems in Adams, Baldwin, Berrian, Ellington and Madison Schools. Madison will also see some tuckpointing and work on exterior masonry walls.

The District is also looking at $162,000 to resurface the lower parking lot and create a concrete bus lane at Quincy High School.

The School Board’s Building Committee met Friday morning and referred the plan to the full board for approval at next week’s meeting.
