Broward School District Clears Parkland Administrators Despite Investigation Noting Failures

first_imgAs questions continue in the aftermath of the Parkland school shooting, the Broward School District recently cleared administrators at the school, even after an outside investigator blamed them for several procedural failures contributing to the 2018 massacre.A committee of district administrators did not find just cause on May 7 to discipline Ty Thompson, who was principal of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School at the time of the shooting, or Assistant Principal Denise Reed. Both individuals were reassigned from the school last year.Jeff Morford, another assistant principal at the school who has retired, was also cleared of most of the allegations against him.However, he was given a letter of reprimand for mishandling a 2016 threat assessment of the student who would kill 17 people and injure another 17 on Feb. 14, 2018.Records obtained by the Sun Sentinel show that attorney Jennifer Ruiz, whose firm was contracted by the district to conduct a review, accused Thompson of failing to adequately supervise school employees.“The evidence shows that Mr. Thompson delegated away many of his own responsibilities or duties to his assistant principals, but failed to implement any type of system to oversee compliance,” she wrote.Ruiz adds that Reed and Morford botched the killer’s threat assessment, and that Morford also ignored various warning signs and provided testimony lacking credibility.A statement from Kathy Koch, the district’s chief communications officer, said Ruiz’s role was to research and present facts, which was was done “comprehensively and thoroughly.”Koch adds that the decision to determine whether there was cause for discipline was up to the committee.“The committee concluded there was not just cause,” the statement goes on to say.Lisa Maxwell, who represents the three administrators as executive director of the Broward Principals and Assistants Association, responds, “The investigator had no idea of how any of the processes actually work. All she did was try to be a rubber stamp for the statewide commission, and she failed miserably.”She described Ruiz as a “lawyer from Miami with no background in investigations, absolutely zero understanding of how schools operate.”Ruiz also completed investigations of Assistant Principal Winfred Porter and Security Specialist Kelvin Greenleaf.In the end, she found no cause to discipline Greenleaf. However, she determined that Porter, who oversaw the school’s security, failed to ensure staff knew how and when to activate emergency Code Red lockdown procedures.The Professional Standards Committee also overturned that recommendation and cleared Porter.The only employees who ended up facing any severe discipline were two security monitors whose contracts were not renewed in June 2018.The full investigation into Ty Thompson is available here.

Speaker formally declares PPP/C parliamentary seat vacant

first_img…calls for replacement MP to be identifiedSpeaker of the National Assembly, Dr Barton Scotland, on Thursday officially declared a seat vacant in the benches of the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), subsequent to the resignation of Member of Parliament, Charles Ramson Jr.According to Dr Scotland, with Ramson’s resignation, a seat in the opposition benches has now to be filled by a person whose name is to be extracted from the list that Ramson represented.The young attorney tendered his resignation on September 30 last, and at the time had signalled his intention to pursue a Masters in Oil and Gas at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, United Kingdom.In his letter to the National Assembly, Ramson Jr had explained that his course of action was so that he could pursue a Masters in Oil and Gas Enterprise Management given that Guyana was moving in the direction of becoming an oil and gas-producing nation.Ramson Jr is the second member of the Opposition to resign since being sworn in as a Member of the 11th Parliament following the May 2015 General and Regional Elections, where the PPP/C suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of the coalition A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC).Dr Clive Jagan had earlier this year tendered his resignation due to illness.Dr Scotland in announcing Ramson Jr’s vacant seat in the House, called on the representative of the list of Candidates for the PPP/C, to extract from the list the name of the person to become its newest Member of Parliament.Guyana Times has been told that the party is still to make a decision on who will be replacing Ramson Jr.Ramson Jr in his resignation had said: “It is absolutely critical for our national development that we have Guyanese who are technically trained in the oil and gas sector. This is particularly important for us as a nation in this preparatory phase as we frame the relevant policy, law and vision if we are to avoid the often cited ‘resource curs’ commonly associated with oil and gas producing nations”.Ramson was recently awarded a full scholarship from Chevening, a prestigious scholarship competitively awarded on a global scale funded by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office.He had also expressed disappointment over two pertinent issues which prevailed during his time in Parliament, namely: the lack of youth representation at the parliamentary and cabinet levels, and the fact there needs to be a stronger commitment for national unity.It is expected that the PPP/C will be looking to have a new Member of Parliament sworn in ahead of the presentation of the 2017 Budget which is slated for December.last_img read more

Sumo Has Its First Japanese Yokozuna In Nearly Two Decades

While the criteria for promotion to yokozuna aren’t set in stone, the most common catalyst is winning two Grand Tournaments in a row — or some “equivalent” performance.In this case, Yokozuna Deliberation Council likely considered the fact that Kisenosato had the most total match wins in the six Grand Tournaments of the 2016 season — including four second-place finishes, despite no overall tournament victories. Also, after Hakuho was upset on day 14, Kisenosato had the January tournament wrapped up before the final day, which is considered stronger than a normal tournament win. Then, in his final match against Hakuho, Kisenosato won with a spectacular sukuinage (“beltless arm throw”):For more on the past and present of sumo, including a deep dive into 250 years of data, see The Sumo Matchup Centuries In The Making. Japanese sumo has been in a bit of a funk this century. With the sport dominated by Mongolian yokozuna (“grand champions”) such as Asashoryu, Hakuho and Haramafuji, Japan went 58 tournaments between 2006 and 2016 without producing any tournament winners — despite strict limitations on how many foreigners are even allowed to train. Japan hasn’t produced a yokozuna since Wakanohana earned the rank in 1998, and hasn’t even had a yokozuna active in the sport since Wakanohana’s brother Takanohana retired in 2003.But that drought has suddenly (and somewhat unexpectedly) ended, as the Japan Sumo Association on Wednesday officially promoted January basho (tournament) winner Kisenosato to the sport’s most prestigious rank — despite this being his first ever-tournament win.1I don’t want to surmise what every sumo fan or analyst was thinking, but perusing Google search results from before the January basho, I found hardly anything discussing Kisenosato’s yokozuna chances. Note this is unlike when Goeido and Kotoshogiku won tournaments last year, when virtually all of the media coverage of the next basho was about their yokozuna quests.Kisenosato had previously finished in second place (called “jun-yusho”) a record 12 times without winning a tournament (“yusho”) — though he still has the record for most jun-yusho with only one yusho. Of course, that kind of thing happens when your career coincides with that of Hakuho, a living legend who, while less than a year older than Kisenosato, has won 37 tournaments (and counting). Nine of Kisenosato’s jun-yusho have been as runner-up to the “White Peng.” read more
