One of the biggest wastes of money in history, staffed by the most arrogant, entitled, and incompetent people on the planet.

I mostly hate my tax dollars going towards them.

Easily an 11.

Get rid of ESL classes and I will drop it down to a 4.

After 8 years, I'm voting with my feet and moving my kids to private school. Wish I'd done it two years ago. ES was not too bad, but MS has been awful. Some teachers are really great, but they are outweighed by the truly nasty, punitive teachers.

Just as example - progress report from my sons' math teacher yesterday at 5PM, announcing that extra help was available after school at 2:40PM. Would have liked my son to attend, but being notified 2 hours after it started makes it a tad difficult. This quarter she's doing mandatory nightly review on Blackboard (i'm sure for SOL prep), announced 3 days into the quarter, oh and there were two due already that can't be turned in late - WTF? These kinds of things are so common I have concluded that this is a way for teachers to screw over students as a control technique.

Teachers are all for "self advocacy" in MS, but in reality is means cutting parents out of the information flow. Since so much work is done at home, you're left guessing on a lot of stuff. Material is posted hit or miss on Blackboard - sometimes late, sometimes never. To mitigate the haphazard way that the teachers use Blackboard, I have my kids review every single class, every single night on Blackboard, and even then all of the assignments are not posted.

I have one more quarter left. If I knew what I know now, I'd never send my kids to FCPS, certainly not past ES. If you have young kids and have the financial ability to opt out of FCPS, consider it. Don't believe the FCPS propaganda - it is a terrible system.

Jesus ANOTHER post about FCPS. NO ONE CARES! These god damn high school students bitching and moaning about people they go to school with, the who's who in their stupid lists of crap no one cares about, the social whatevers going on, so and so is this, these people are criminals/narks/whores/something stupid because I feel bad ass saying things about people, and, of course, the non-stop whining about the school and the staff. No one gives a shit what you think, you're a child who's in school for a few years and then hopefully moves the fuck out of mommy's house and does something to contribute to society besides get on FFU and piss and moan.

And will the parents that post on here realize that FFU is not some sort of forum dedicated to your child's school system? Jesus Christ I see a post two up from here with a parent ranting about their experience with the district. This is a forum filled with prepubescent children posting racist, sexist, and general retarded rantings. If you're stupid enough to believe that FFU is some sort of a...community forum where people can exchange ideas about your children, community, and schools...you're as retarded as the kids that post on here. Holy shit people. FFS the damn stickied posts on the main page haven't changed in 3 years, the site is a piece of shit filled with tons of other pieces of shit that post the most completely incoherent ramblings about the most insignificant bullshit imaginable. How many fucking posts were there about a local pizza place?! WHO FUCKING CARES?! Jesus.

NO ONE CARES! Fucking kids. Get off my lawn.

0 and if I could go into the negative I would. Unless you're a criminal, got pulled over a DUI, or part of the entitled generation who is butt hurt by authority there shouldn't be any reason to hate them. Follow the law, don't be stupid, and above all if you get caught for speeding or whatever be a man and actually accept responsibility for your actions. You messed up, you got caught, pay the price. It's not their fault you're stupid and did something stupid to get caught. OP must've gotten busted or failed the initial written exam for employment and is using the site to spread his tears.

I always come back to this: people who bitch about FCPS most likely do not have a lot of experience with other school systems. The majority of minutia people cry about are the sort of thing you will find in all schools systems.

Life Fact: Nothing is perfect all the time everywhere. When something goes wrong whether it is in traffic, on the job, in politics, at school - if it's trivia such as is usually bitched about here - it's part of life. Deal with it.

Wow, you have suffered so. Before the door hits you in the fanny, let me give you one little parting bit of information: They're not online courses. I say again, they're not online courses.

In class the teacher told your kid about the upcoming review sessions. Your kid either wasn't paying attention or chose to forget about it. In class your teacher told your kid about the SOL review. Again, your kid wasn't paying attention or chose to forget about it.

And your kid got the paper assignment there in class. In fact, the teacher went over it and explained how to do it. And then your kid left it in his desk or dropped it in the hall or left it at his friend's house. And so you went on Blackboard and it wasn't there and now you're all upset at the teacher instead of at your kid. Because, after all, if there's anybody who is at fault there, it for damn sure isn't your son who got the worksheet and lost it.

Let me guess, for years teachers have told you that your kid has an attention problem and needs help and you've tried "interventions" like not having him eat gluten or red food dye and stuff like that. But again, it's all the teacher's fault, right?

One last little bit of info, which I am sure that your dumb ass won't even bother to think about: "Perfect" schools don't turn out perfect kids. You want a school where the teacher hands out the homework, goes over it five times, has a review session after school to work on it, posts it on Blackboard and posts an online tutorial, and where the teacher comes to your house and personally tutors your kid. Everything runs perfectly, your kid does not have to problem solve at all, and every i is dotted and every t is crossed.

Which I am sure your dumb ass thinks life is actually like. Except it isn't. In real life meeting locations are moved at the last minute, the store runs out of ingredient you need right before you need it, the website goes down, and instructions aren't clear. And your perfectly-coddled kids will have not one flipping clue about how to deal with it. They'll stand there wetting their pants while the kids who grew up not having every last little thing done for them will problem solve and find a work-around.

So please, take your lazy ass kids out of FCPS. Send them off to some private school and buy good grades for them and tell yourself you're doing the right thing. But when they totally fail in life, it will be all your fault.

So this is the classic FCPS response to criticism of what happens in the classroom:

1. It's the kid's fault - they are lazy, they lie, they don't pay attention
2. It's the parents' fault - they helicopter, they're entitled

Never an acknowledgement of anything other than perfection.

FCPS eats up half the County's resources. It gets wasted on trips to Orlando, turf fields, consulting contracts, and who knows what else. If you complain they tell you the case is closed or they just don't bother to answer.

Blackboard can be used for good instruction, but far too often is used by the helicopter parent as a "gotcha." Most HS instructors give syllabi directly to the students. They give assignments in class (that too many students miss too often especially early in the morning.) They remind daily, they post on BB when they get a chance, they email via SIS. YET - they are to blame if little Johnny or Judy does not get an A. This is endemic to most public school systems in this area. Private schools take your money, but often will not take the constant hovering or complaining by parents.

I think you have that exactly backwards. Can't tell you how many times I've heard at back to school nights that "it's all on blackboard". If it's used as a gotcha by parents, it's because the expectation has been set by teachers and administration that the coursework is all on Blackboard. And it's a tough sell to say we have this extremely expensive, sophisticated online system, but you as a teacher cannot be bothered to use it.

And once again, anyone who has any kind of criticism of FCPS is labeled a helicopter parent. You guys really should update your playbook once in a while.

Gotta agree with that. Which is better - private golf course or municipal? Private hospital or municipal? Private lawyer or public defender? Anything private has to deliver value above the public offering, and if it doesn't, it fails and no longer exists. Municipalities are perpetual - no one is ever worried at FCPS if the students won't show up next year if they do a shitty job. There is not motivation to improve and provide value. The only people that use public accommodations for anything are the ones that cannot afford a better, private choice.
