Relieved Parent says...
Thank you Delta Scoop! I heard today that Dr. Richards has resigned her position as Leland School District superintendent. It seems that the board and certain citizens started looking into several of the allegations against her and she became quite defensive and uncooperative.
When her usual tantrums didn't work to distract the board's interests, she resigned rather than be exposed. I have children in the LSD and first heard about her "unprofessional ism" on the Delta Scoop. With help from several other parents, we all called board members and insisted that these issues be addressed. It took a while, but we didn't give up.
If we had not been informed about her outrageous behavior, nothing would have been done. Don't just complain about what needs to be done. Get involved and make change happen.

I hope Dr. Richards will take Ray Humphreys with her to resignation land! There is another to add to this list of travelers....Please reserve a seat for the traveling Greenville Mayor, she loves to travel. Perfect timing! This time we all hope she keeps on "moving down that road!
"Great job Leland parents!
For those in Leland:
"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty We are free at last!"
Or Ding Dong the witch is dead!
It seems that "individual" voices can still be heard when they sing in a "choir". Elected or appointed officials are still accountable to the public to whom they serve. Dr. Richards' resignation is a triumph for all parents who place trust in our public education system. Health care and education are two issues on which we should never compromise.
Good job Leland residents! YOUR voices have been heard.
