[Albany Patch would love your 300-word letters to the editor. .]
The district office was full [Aug. 23] as children found out at orientation that they were not in the system after turning in required paperwork months earlier.
No letters or calls were made if a file was reportedly incomplete. The late-afternoon parents were brushed off due to a power outage and the inability to compute or copy. Officials resorted to using cameras to document.
Aug. 24, the line went out the door and on for hours, as they had one employee manning the window and doing the enrollment. Tons of angry parents.
Children were also left for hours at the junior high and high schools when they arrived for school to hear this news (about incomplete paperwork) for the first time.
Principals hid or blamed the district, the district did not answer calls, and the administration hid. The office didn't even answer the schools when information was input incorrectly and parents showed up thinking the problem was solved.
After a 2 1/2 hour wait, two of my kids had their enrollment switched and the wrong one was in middle school and high school. Calls and pleas to staff, admin and even the superintendent have yielded zero results.
I have two enrolled children who could not attend school because they were misplaced again this year! I mean the district tossed kids from out of district, and the budget is suffering. Why would you throw away your own district attendees?
There were hundreds of families that this happened to.
