I would like to thank the Principle, Superintendent, and Administrators at the GWHS for all you have done to my daughter. A sweet lovely girl that once could have been the poster child for the "all American teenage girl". Through your tyranny, deceit, and willful lies to cover your own butts, you have turned a promising student with a bright future into a distressed lost kid, struggling to keep her head above water. Your school fails miserably at education for those sentenced to DAEP, and it is no wonder your drop out rate increases yearly. To sit in a room with 4 walls with a coach as the baby sitter, with no class room instruction available day after day will rot any mind. Yet you collect the full dollar amount for such students from the state without them having classroom instruction. You leave them to self study. She has stopped asking questions and assistance from the teachers, because at each turn she was told they would get around to her on their break if they had time. I believe that if you are going to put these kids in an alternative school...than it should be a school, and you should have a TEACHER that can actually assist the kids with their studies. Without providing a Teacher these kids mine as well be given school books and sent home and told do it on their own, but then if you did that you would not get the money from the state. Shame Shame. I also want to thank the school for having some of the most asinine rules, I really never believed you could make yourselves appear more idiotic than you already did, but I was wrong! She is not allowed within 300 feet of the campus, yet DAEP is on school campus and they walk across campus and eat in the school cafeteria, so technically each day she attends DAEP she is in violation. Wait Wait it gets more ridiculous. She cannot attend any school function or assemblies, yet they were made to attend a school assembly recently where they were mixed and sat among regular students. (the same kids you say you can not return to regular classes because they may endanger other students..you turn them loose among regular students.) It gets better, the village idiots are showing their colors now, anyone who has been in GW knows there is one main road that goes in front of the school, a side road to one parking lot, a side road in the back and a side road on the other side by a parking lot. My daughter was told she could not drive past the front of the school during school hours on the main road. Instead they want her to take all 3 side roads, meaning she will drive down the main road past the junior high campus, and right at the high school campus, she will turn left to go up the side of the school, to turn right to go behind the school and than right again to complete the other side of the school. Each of these side roads being longer and closer to the school itself than the 2 second distance it would take to travel the main road where the school sits further away from. It makes no sense at all, and you have to wonder if the person who came up with this, is in their right frame of mind. Perhaps they were dropped one too many times on their head as a baby.
The final straw is the blue nasty stained jumpsuits you provide to these children. Are they truly incarcerated to the point they need prison jumpsuits? I think it is just a power trip you have reducing the kids to dirty rags trying to show them who is in control. There is no point to them having to put these sloppy looking overalls on wearing their clothes underneath. I truly urge parents to take the step up and tell the schools NO MORE!
I would like to remind the school that they once more dropped the ball on following school procedures. See when my daughter was given DAEP, she was told to sign some papers, she refused, but they sent her home with a packet for me to sign as well, which I am sure included some kind of liability legal waiver about her health and well being while it there. yada yada...I told her not to give me the packet I did not want to see it and I would not sign anything to toss it in the trash! No paperwork was ever returned to the school, therefore they probably should have kicked her out of DAEP, and in all honestly that is one reason I did not sign it. By not doing so they assume responsibility for her, which includes her health, which I have on good knowledge that the building she attends DAEP in contains asbestos particles, and it believed to hold mold as well. Who is that lawyer fellow again on TV you know the one with the big billboards the pro at filing class action lawsuits? Just remember GWISD, I never signed ANYTHING!!!!!
