Missouri public school students to get dyslexia screenings | The Charlotte Observer



JEFFERSON CITY, MO. 

Gov. Jay Nixon has signed a bill that requires every student in Missouri public schools to be screened for dyslexia. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/292f23q ) reports that Nixon signed the bill last week. Screenings for the learning disorder, which is characterized by difficulty reading, are to start in the 2018-19 school year. The screenings are meant to be informal and brief. The bill also says teachers must receive two hours of training on methods to address dyslexia. A 20-member task force will recommend how classroom accommodations should be delivered. Kim Stuckey, a dyslexia specialist for the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, says that school officials are going to create better awareness about dyslexia. In Missouri, parents in the advocacy group Decoding Dyslexia have pushed the Legislature for change to raise the status of dyslexia as a learni…

It is time that the voters start researching the candidates that run for school board.  I ran twice.  I was bullied by one candidate.  It happened right after a debate and everyone in the audience saw it.  One person even stopped me on the way out and questioned me about why he attacked me.  



I was called crazy and was treated as a stupid housewife that did not have the ability to handle the business of a school district.  I was told that I belonged at the podium and not on the board.  I was told this in public.  In front of the few voters that showed up to the debate. 



We have finally gotten the voters to see what really goes on in this district.  They have only seen the tip of the iceberg.  Teachers have been fired for trying to help students.  Teachers have bullied students.  Three children with autism had to be removed from PE in one middle school.  Yes, the Superintendent knew it because I told him.



I met w…

McGehee, who had been suspended with pay while board members looked into issues surrounding his performance, salary and potential conflicts of interest, reached a deal with the board. McGehee will receive two payments totaling $450,000 under the terms of the deal. His most recent contract would have paid him more than $1.1 million over the next three years.

This is part of the article. How much different is this than what is happening in Lee's Summit.



Colgan will also have to repay $660,000 in a lump sum to the Missouri Public School Retirement System (PSRS). Colgan improperly padded the last three years of his salary using stipends, car allowances and other means. The school board knew about some of the payments but often they did not. Because all of that information was transmitted to PSRS via the web, it crossed state lines as it hit various servers. It became a federal crime as soon as the data left Missouri. The government said Colgan's scheme to inflate his salary and thus his pension started in 1997 and ended with his final contract in 2004
