Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on July 15, 2014 by chasinthenews




Finally , maybe the Evansville School district will get some where.     I LOVE THE TWO COMMITTEE MEMBERS THAT WERE CHOSEN.

Melissa and Amanda.

IF ever there were two people who will show results , and figure out why Evansville is losing so many students , they will.


I wonder what administration will do if they come back and report that administration is part of the problem.   Because it is.

What will Jerry Roth do ??      Bury it?    Claim they need to start over ..    that is often what he does when he does not like what he

is being told.


The numbers of families fleeing the district has grown every year for the last 5+ years…   over a million plus is loses the last couple of years.

It’s about attitude and administration has a horrible attitude.


So glad no family is stuck in any district that does not work…   and Evansville does not work.

Almost time for Open Enrollment! ??

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 31, 2014 by chasinthenews

Parents, please note, the Open Enrollment application period is February 3 – April 30, 2014
The application period closes at 4:00 p.m. on April 30, 2014. Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.

The Public School Open Enrollment application period for the 2014-15 school year is from February 3 to April 30, 2014. Parents must submit applications to the non-resident school district. All districts are encouraging parents to apply on-line at Parents do not need to reapply each year. Parents do not need to reapply when going into Middle or High School.

All applications, questions, and inquiries should be directed to Linda Gard, at or call 608-882-3385.

Open Enrollment Brochure 14-15″

Late applications will not be accepted for any reason.”

Really no late applications will be accepted for any reason?   Really?    You would think from the way this is written that the E.S.D. has control over the law.

It would not be the first time the E.S.D. has broken the law.   It is very much a district of ‘ do as I say , not as I do.”

The fact is families  can open enroll at any time through the school year , for any reason.    So the comment that late application will not be accepted is total crap.

Families are no longer stuck in the Evansville School District.  It is a very dysfunctional district and lacks any real curriculum , and the fail to get kids ready for college.

( Some kids are just naturally gifted and have been college ready because of their own discipline, not because of any thing they might catch at the high school.Oh hell some of them are smarter than the teachers.)

I was looking over reports on the school website,  100+ kids open enrolled out this last year.  That does not include the families  who home school which is over 50+ families in the district who home school.  That does not also include the families who intentionally moved so their kids could go to a better school and get a decent education.   The numbers grow every year and will continue to grow until real changes are made.

And sorry folks real change is not 4k.   Only 9% of the people surveyed left Evansville because of no 4k.  That is a very small amount.

How ever  36% of those surveyed left because of lack of curriculum/challenging curriculum at the higher grades.

Take advantage of Open enrollment,  bigger schools offer so much more.    We did not realize how bad the Evansville school district was until we moved and saw how real schools run and what they offer.

Evansville School District Board Meeting 12/10/2012– MORE student requests to leave the district through open enrollment.

Since the beginning of the school year there has been an open enrollment request every month.  They are losing thousands, and thousands of dollars every year due to open enrollment. Do to their inability to face the facts there are serious issues with this district.    Open enrollment is a great thing.  NO family or student should be stuck in a district where there kids are not getting what they need .  

Administration is yet to take this seriously.
