I was confused. The piece clearly states ‘Associate Principal’. I refer to my posts in June about Mrs. Wilman’s appointment as Associate Principal as opposed to Acting Principal and the William (‘Bill’) Lander blog post, from his “Superintendent’s Blog” from June 10, 2014 — shown below.
From what I can see it clearly states that the Acting Principal, William (‘Bill’) Lander will provide DAILY mentoring to Mrs. Wilman. Daily!
So does this mean that William (‘Bill’) Lander, Acting Principal and Superintendent, overlooked this prior approval requirement?
IF so …
1/ Should it not be William (‘Bill’) Lander, Acting Principal and Superintendent, that apologized rather than the ever admirable Linda Wilman?
2/ Why didn’t he see that this requirement had been overlooked and put it right — IF he is indeed providing daily mentoring?
3/ How come the Board Chair did not point out that it should be the Acting Principal’s job to help Mrs. Wilman on stuff like this?
I am confused. From everything I hear (and occasionally see as I did yesterday morning) Mrs. Wilman is doing a stellar job and everybody is happy. Distresses me, greatly, to read that she had to apologize when somebody else appears to have dropped the ball.
I also urge everybody to watch 47 seconds of the September 8, 2014 Alton Central School Board meeting (YouTube) video below.
William (‘Bill’) Lander’s June 10, 2014 explanation as to his role as Acting Principal.
You really should watch, at a minimum, 47 seconds of this video, from the September 8, 2014, Alton Central School Board meeting. This is their official video of the proceedings. If you have the time, motivation and guts you should watch ALL of it — and check out Darla Monzione making a public statement at the 1:57:11 mark [i.e., towards the very end].
What I would really, really, REALLY like you to watch is the 47 second segment between 22:01 and 22:48. So that is 22 minutes into the meeting. The ‘time’ bar at the bottom will allow you to FF to that spot. Pay particular attention to 22:18.
This part, also from the same ‘The Baysider’ report, but this on Page 11, intrigued me. Wow. What a concept. The teachers will use the web site. Wow. You mean they don’t right now?

I never condone violence but I can understand how this could happen given that Gross’ popularity even BEFORE he started to get so much wrong about today’s markets.
First Jill Biden, then Robert Gates and now Gross. Of the three, Gross, by far, is the least surprising.

To say that I am relieved and happy would be an understatement. This is good, this is good for the World … this is good for the Catholic Church.
I am cool. These two are good people. They have done tangible things for the betterment of others — and that the ‘others’ are kids makes it even better. Congratulations and BRAVO. I am happy.
The pope did NOT deserve this or any other related prize, though I am more than happy if he gets as many entertainment related awards as he wants. Because that is what he has, ALAS, become, an entertainer, a Rock Star. I am still hoping that when he grows up he will actually DO SOMETHING other than giving kids rides in his popemobile and thinking that is what being pope is all about.
Maybe he should read my book about Pope John XXIII (#262) — ah, but he knows no English. Seems very strange. One of his 7 (or more) OFFICIAL titles is ‘Vicar of Christ‘. ‘Vicar’ means ‘stand-in’, ‘substitute’. So you have omnipotent Trinity and then we find out that their vicar has no English! Isn’t that strange. Yes, the pope, very much a mortal (Thank God), can’t be omnipotent BUT wouldn’t you think God would kind of snap his fingers and make sure he, as if by magic, knows all the World’s major languages. That would be cool.
But, forget the Pope for today. Let us REJOICE. There is still common sense and wisdom left on Earth.
