Review: Deer Park High School has gone down the tubes over the last several years due to an inadequate adminsitration both at the high school level and at the district level. New rules and policies are set daily. Snap decisions are made in one moment and then changed in the next moment. Blame is placed everywhere with no one taking responsibility for their decisions. As an example, during the 07/08 school year, SAT prep. courses were made a requirement, which meant that students did not have room in their schedules to take desired electives. For next year, 08/09, that requirement will be dropped. Direction from administrators is erratic. An analogy can be made to a car going down the road at 100 mph; a turn is missed, so the car turns suddenly on two wheels to head into the new direction. That's what the students and staff members feel everyday as policies are made and changed constantly. The high school administrators can't take all of the blame because much of the time, their decisions are overturned by central administration. As an example, in 2006 the principal denied attendance to the prom to a number of seniors for being on the ineligibility list for numerous reasons. Their parents complained to central administration, and their denial was overturned. The students were allowed to attend the prom. They showed up to the prom in a party bus stinkng drunk. The catering hall threw them out. All of their parents were called to take them home--there were about 40 students in all. The prom was a debacle. Had the principal's original decision to deny prom attendance to those students stood, the mess may have not occurred. Most of the administrators have no managerial skills or organizational skills. The bottome line of the Board of Education is to cut, cut, cut the last penny. If someone retires, don't replace them; if a class is not a state mandate, don't run it; if there is a contract to be negotiated with a bargaining unit, refuse all proposals. Yet nepostism runs rampant: the assistant superintendent for personnel's daughter got a job under her mother's watch as a math teacher; ironically, this superintendent used to be the math department director. One of the drunken prom denied/yet prom attendees, was the assistant superintendent for pupil personnel's daughter's boyfriend--if he couldn't go to the prom, then the asst. sup's daughter had no date. During the spring of 2008, the high school created a policy where illegally parked cars on campus would be ticketed by the police. A week later, one of the board of ed. member's daughter who is a senior at the school, got a ticket for being parked illegally. The next week, the parking policy was scrapped. If a business was run the way Deer Park High School is run, the company would have folded and shut its doors long ago.
