The environment is very structured and the members of the Board were task orientated. There was a great sense of group cohesiveness among the members and I could see there was a great deal of respect.

The meeting continued with board member Jason Hopp presenting Dr. Matthew Flannery, formerly the principal of Shiloh Hills Elementary School, for a roll call vote to approve him as the new Assistant Superintendent of the WIlson School District. Mr. Hopp spoke for approximately two minutes about the credentials, reputation, and record of quality performance that Dr. Flannery has documented during his time with the district. A five-year contract was approved on an 8-1 vote, with Mr. Martin voting “no”. It may be worth observing that Mr. Martin is known as the “no man” of the current board, and often tows one of the more conservative lines of all board members. One can speculate that he may have felt
1. Why did you elect to file an application for employment with Chesapeake Public Schools? I filed an application with Chesapeake Public School systems, so that I could become a part of an organization that values teamwork, dedication, and academic success. Chesapeake Public Schools exhibits a positive, collaborative, and cooperative learning environment not only for the students but for their employees as well.

These are great attributes for any organization to possess, which is why I chose to become a part of the Chesapeake Public School.

For this reason, an ethical crisis arises when the district decides whether or not to close a local high school. While public relations officers want district administration to be as transparent as possible to remain honest and open, the superintendent and other schoolboard members want to hold meetings with no media present. This facts of this case will become clear through explication.
The CT I was working under has been a teacher at this school for the past nine years. When asked if anything was done prior to school out in the community the look of horror was given. The CT has grandchildren that attend a different school in the county and sometimes the CT attends community events with them. Once in a while the CT might run into one of the prior or current year students.

On April 26, 1983 Matthew Fraser gave a student election nomination speech at Bethel High School. While giving his speech Matthew began to speak about the candidate he was nominating in a profane and sexually explicit manner. Some of Fraser’s teachers said that he spoke about his speech with them and they told him it was, “inappropriate and that he probably should not deliver it,” that and if he did he may face punishment. There were 600 students in attendance at this assembly, some responded to this speech with cheers and lewd gestures, while others were shocked and embarrassed. The next day Fraser was sent to the principal’s office where he was told that, “conduct which materially and substantially interferes with the educational process is prohibited, including the use of obscene, profane language or gestures.” Fraser then admitted that he had purposely acted in an inappropriate manner during his speech. Matthew Fraser was punished for his actions by being suspended for three days and having his name removed from the school’s list of candidates to give a speech at graduation. Later, Fraser had the school's hearing officer review the disciplinary action, it was decided that “the
The events that took place at Washington High Schools have caused a division between the students, teachers and administration. While some support the decision the principal has made to suspend the students for their untasteful talent show performance, others question its effectiveness. Shortly after the suspension, the students began segregating themselves and exchanging racial comments. The situation has escalated out of control and it has become a political one; leaders of the African American community want to discuss the talent show protest and are demanding a meeting with the principal.

As a new member of the working town of the Westview Community, Principal Joe Thompson has made a few mistakes. He has proven himself to be human and extremely fallible to his parents, students and community members. Principal Thompson did not do his homework in advance, scout out the town, nor did get to know his constituents. He did not talk to any of the current staff at the school to understand the true needs of the parents and students, which communicates to people that he is insensitive to their needs. Due to a lack of research and naivety Principal Thompson has accused the Westview Community parents of being unconcerned and uninterested parents, in their children’s educational careers and overall success.
