Bullying at Alton Central School (ACS) Raises Its Vicious,
Ugly Head Again
 — Dec. 6, 2013.

New Hampshire Department of Education (DOE) Offers
3rd-Party Moderator Program For Bullying Cases
Jan. 28, 2014.

Worrying bullying cases at ACS seem to be endemic.

A really bad situation, with physical violence (i.e., kid’s head been banged into a locker with consequent bleeding and scarring), has been going on at ACS for the last month or so. Lawyers, from both sides, have been involved as has some town officials. At least one kid has been taken out of ACS to be homeschooled because of this ongoing situation. [We can relate to that. We took Devanee out of ACS and homeschooled her for a year because of bullying at ACS.]

I have been getting updates on this bullying case for the last ‘month’ but I declined to say anything because of some ‘sensitivities’.

Today things have escalated further. It has got real serious.

This case could have some far reaching repercussions.

Hopefully something will finally get done about this never-ending bullying incidents at ACS.

I will post what I can and what I think I can divulge.

So the Principal, who was constantly ‘under the gun’ for bullying, will be leaving under a dark cloud, bullying still a major unresolved and now openly festering issue at ACS.

I could be wrong but I have a feeling that there will once again be parents at the next ACS School Board meeting talking about bullying. [Search my past posts!]

As the above posts, especially the top 2, indicate we have been trying to keep an eye on what is happening re. the new principal for ACS because we, obviously, have a vested interest.

As the posts will show OR if you visit Alton Central Superintendent, William (‘Bill’) Lander’s blog June 2, last Monday, was supposed to be key goalpost day. Well, as you can also see June 2 came and went with nary a squeak from the often glibly loquacious Bill Lander. So Deanna e-mailed last night and told him that it was about time he updated his blog.

He did, today. And this is what it NOW says:

So what does this mean?

That Lander doesn’t have any specific information does NOT surprise me. He rarely does. So has the ball been dropped again?

What is this talk of an ‘INTERIM PLAN’?

Didn’t his last post say interviewing FINALIST.

So … what gives? Yes, I understand that this is a LOT of work for Lander and given his part-time schedule he just didn’t get around to it.

Interim Plan.

Is that to say that YET AGAIN we will have an Interim Principal?

The School Board, as they have so recently demonstrated with their totally uncalled for JMA ‘Fishing Trip’ on the heels of their ‘we didn’t know what we were voting for’ “Common Core” debacle, they are but a pathetic joke. It would be funny if not for the fact that it is so sad. AND I will be doing another post shortly — HUGE bullying case at ACS right now. Again this Board, as the minutes will conclusively prove, has been totally impotent on bullying.

There is also no archive, as far as I know, for these (what I call) Google Footnotes.

No Google Doodle.

I think they don’t do any that are to do with war.

Amazon said: Expected Delivery Thursday, June 5, 2014.

What they conveniently omitted to mention
was that the delivery on

Thursday was to the local Post Office
— and that it would take another day or two!

Not right.



I really detest it when Amazon plays petty games like this. Very unbecoming and uncalled for.

Yes, the famous Bayeux Tapestry depicting another battle involving the ‘British’,
i.e., the 1066 Norman conquest, originated there.

Many, many more who were on the beaches that eventful they were around in 1994.
