Alton Central Principal Sydney Leggett Gets The Leg Up In Gilford. She IS LEAVING!
by Anura Guruge
Well, I guess I get the credit for breaking the news that she was trying to fly the coop 13 days ahead of today’s news.
I am now very confused. Am I the ONLY one in Alton or ACS that thinks that she is the cat’s whiskers as opposed to what the cat dragged in.
A neighbor on this road, an Alton Central mother with two kids at school, just stopped by to tell Deanna the news and she was ‘cock a hoop’! Her first words were: ‘I am going into town to get some champagne‘!
I am in shock.
When, the by comparison, very saintly Bonnie Kuras left, I remember hearing that she was the ‘xth ACS principal in n-years’ — and the ‘x’ was quite large. I can’t remember the details but it was something like the average tenure was under 5 years.
Not sure how long Leggett has been around. Was it two exciting, eventful years?
Well, now that she is gone the School Board that voted 3-2 against ‘Common Core’ will have an easier task of dismantling CC at ACS.
So now what?
I am GLAD she got the job — though I am, personally, crushed that she will no longer be around to bully me around, as she liked to do.
