KC replied to Nicole's discussion switching schools
"Zoning exemptions are not easy to get because the schools on the west side of town are at or near capacity.  "

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion Are you happy about students getting all of Thanksgiving week off?
"I can't speak for all teachers, but at the middle school where I taught, I never really had that many kids absent, even when we only had Thursday and Friday off.  The days prior to Thanksgiving were instructional days.  No other major…"

KC replied to Carolyn's discussion AvMed pediatrician recommendations?
"Gainesville Pediatric Associates in the Women's Center at North Florida is great.  We use Dr. Wyatt- have for 16 years, but Dr. Grooms, Dr. Boon, and all of the rest of them are wonderful as well. "

KC replied to HPM's discussion Child Care suggestions in Gainesville
"KidWorks at Tioga is absolutely wonderful.  My youngest was there from 6 months until he "graduated" and moved on to kindergarten.  My older two went to other preschools in town, but that was before KidWorks opened.  Wish…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion Proposal would have schools out all of Thanksgiving week
"Politically, you can't get rid of Homecoming ( I'm sure there would be an uproar about that), and Teacher Workdays are guaranteed by contract.  In fact, according to data from the school board, the district has almost a 90% attendance…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion Proposal would have schools out all of Thanksgiving week
"Do kids really need the entire week off?  They have 2 whole weeks off just a few weeks later anyway.  It also extends the school year by 2 days.  I know that my own children had several tests during those 2 days so there is work going…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion Mom suing Twitter and school over half-naked photo of daughter posted online
"While some schools may sit back and do nothing, you can't group all schools into that category.  Many schools try to handle these type of issues every day, but it starts in the home.  The girl had learned somewhere that this type of…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion Chick-fil-A...
"This should have never risen to the level that is has.  Everyone is entitled to their opinion and can choose which businesses they want to patronize. "

KC replied to Brandy's Proud Mom's discussion Home school or on line
"The Alachua County School Board has district virtual programs for elementary and secondary students.  They also now have their own franchise of Florida Virtual School- Alachua eSchool.  With the eSchool, it is the same curriculum as…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion How do you feel about charter schools? Does your child go to one?
"The jurisdiction for the day to day operation of charter schools is their own local school board, not the district school  board.  All charter schools have individual school boards.  So, I don't think it is the case that the…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion How do you feel about charter schools? Does your child go to one?
"Charter schools are a great alternative for some students;  however, only when they have to meet the same standards of accountability as the public schools would I support additional funding.  Charter schools can pick and choose which…"

KC replied to Stacy Fournier's discussion What do you think about the dates of Alachua County's spring break?
"The fact is that with UF being the largest employer in the county, I think it at least needs to be looked at.  UF employees get one spring break, where they can't enjoy vacation time with their families, only to have to turn around 3-4…"

KC replied to Sheryl's discussion Tutoring advice?
"If your child attends a Title I Elementary School- which includes most elementary schools in Alachua County, she can receive free tutoring after school through a SES provider.  I'd ask your school counselor about it."
Oct 1, 2011
KC replied to Maranda's discussion Being forced to change classrooms
"What sounded good on paper when voters passed the class size amendment, has turned into musical chairs for everyone.  Even then, when voters had the opportunity to repeal the new amendment last year, it didn't get enough votes, so this is…"

KC replied to Gainesville's discussion Help with back to school supplies
"If your child is going to an Alachua County Public School there is assistance available for purchasing the "uniforms."  Just contact your child's school.  You might also want to check the volunteer office at the school board…"
