IT IS APPARENT THAT THE SCHOOL BOARD IS PLANNING A RUSH ON THIS JOB POSITION."

JENNY WRITES: "WOW, THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE!

PRINCIPALS AND SCHOOL SYSTEMS SHOULD BE FINED AND HELD ACCOUNTABLE!

THEY ALSO NEED TO DO STORM DRILLS AND 'CODE RED' DRILLS IN THE EVENT OF A SEVERE INCIDENT ON SCHOOL GROUNDS.

PARENTS AND P-T-O'S SHOULD KEEP ON TOP OF THIS."

BOB SAYS "SOMETHING HAS CHANGED IN THE FEW YEARS SINCE I WAS AN ADMINISTRATOR.
