Bill Park, get off your high horse and stop pretending you care about sexual harassment. This is about football not your grossly exaggerated plea for saving girls at Lake Braddock. If it's such a horrible place why are your girls there? Save us taxpayers a dime and move on, get a life and stop trying to bring football justice to your stupid case.

Park may well be an ass, but he is right. Unlike you he will not quit the cause because some pussy is taking shots at him behind a computer. Your name isn't Dave is it? The fact is this will be on TV shortly so you need to brush up on your fake news propaganda. Dave picked the wrong guys to mess with....that noose is getting snug ain't it. As soon as we can find one to fit Fat Karl he will feel it as well. And if super fat Ernesto is around we are looking for the elephant noose to fit you. New Years will be great douche bags.

I love that you just admitted that Dave picked the wrong guys to mess with. For you just admitted that Park, Poythress and Kyle V Miller, Esquire are in cahoots to destroy Dave. You just admitted that this isn't about a bogus sexual harassment case...it's about winning your war against the Lake Braddock administration for having the audacity to bust football players for criminal activity and firing the football coach for covering it up.

Nice work dickheads! Busted.

Bruin Dad 2 (aka Kyle V Miller, Esquire) you lie. All 12 families united - NOT. Park is pimping his own daughter for the headline. It's child abuse. Using his own daughter to make false claims so he can retalliate against the administration for busting his son in that car drunk? He is justifying his guilt for getting Poythress fired. Wow. Great dad. Great human being.

And Kyle Miller, you're just a pawn. A weak, small little man who lives in a shack off Rolling Road hiding behind a computer. A washed up lawyer with nothing to do except dream about being Poythress' amd Park's bitch. You just want to play with the big boys. But you are a disgusting excuse for a human being much like your "buddies".

So stop your lying and hit the weight room, Miller. You look like you're a 50 year old man trapped in a twelve year old body. Tough guy.

The big problem in this situation is the fact that kerns has been bribing children to take Thomas's side with snickers bars and his other favorite snacks. When students speak out against his intolerable tyranny he does things like kick them out of sporting events and he makes the lunch staff stop serving them food. Then when the press comes around Kerns plays cute gopher like he never did anything wrong and goes back to his life of obesity.

You are correct, Dave learned that coach P knew that he knew about this and did nothing. So what did Dave do? He turned on coach P, didn't renew his coaching contract and tired to get him fired from his teaching position.

You can say that coach P did this or did that, but the bottom line is, he stood up for what was right. Dave did nothing and then made it worse, by trying to cover it up.

The pressure is now on Dave from the DOE, I can not imagine he will be at LB much longer

Always seems like a lot of bad publicity coming out of one of Fairfax County Public School Systems, Lake Braddock Secondary School for the past year or so, when does it stop?

Sexual harassment by a coach, coaches and ADs fired, students getting harassed by teachers for religious heard wear and now a federal investigation as well as civil investigations.

Has the Principal lost all control at this school?
It seems he doesn't know anything that goes on at his school, is he there during the school day?

If any business was run like this, the person in charge would be held accountable and fired. Saying that the Principal isn't aware of these issues is ridiculous, he should know what is going on in his surroundings as well as be held accountable for his employees action.

This to me is a no brainer, the Principal needs to be held accountable and fired or placed somewhere else. The Lake Braddock community is tired of the school being drug thru the mud every few months.

Show some leadership, make some changes!!!
Dave Thomas has to go, there is no other way out of this.

He got rid of the AD and Football and tried to pin it on them. Now lets just get to the source of the matter, why not start at the top where the problem has always been? These issues will go away and the community and the school can start the healing process..

This is all old news. It’s all been handled and quite well, I might add. The Dept of Ed will find exactly what the new Supt did, that all is well and all was handled well too. Parents can be mad all they want. They knew and did nothing so how can they expect school admin to have done something? Check the time lines. You’ll see all was done exactly as it should have been. Now move on! The Muslim girl? Check out her story, nature, and habit and then you’ll see the truth. It’s done! Talking about Braddock is fun. Fine. But there’s nothing wrong there nor has there been. Even Coach P in football was fired appropriately because of his continual used of words like “retard” and “faggot.” Ones career just can’t be sustained now adays with that kind of behavior. Coach Doc has turned the program around, just ask the classroom teachers. Lake Braddock is headed back in the right direction now. Quit perpetuating the story as anything but that!

99.5 percent of the people at lake Braddock are not interested,dont care, or don't even know about any of this!
All of this continuous discussion is being done by a small group of people who were directly involved or close to those involved. These people are just talking to each other.I'm not saying this didn't happen, or the investigation is not happening; I'm saying that the people within the school have either moved on, or don't know much, or care much about what happened.

I am not sure where you are getting your information, but, this is simply not true. The whole Lake Braddock community is aware and are talking about this. How can they not be, when this or some other discretion comes up at Lake Braddock in the media every few weeks?

DOE was brought in because there is something there, otherwise, this would have been closed. The school board and principal have to be held accountable for the actions that this has caused.

Most likely the Principal will be reassigned to Gatehouse for the remainder of the year. I also suspect that the administration staff, will replaced with new people to allow this school to heal. It makes sense to clean house and start fresh

Just not true. DOE finds nothing. Waste of time. Staff is happy with Dave. Athletes were thugs in the building with no consequences before Coach Doc. That’s why you should ask the teachers, ass.

Ask a teacher because in the past, athletes could do no wrong. They were above the school rules and Coach P supported them. Coach P never had the standards Coach Doc has. Student athletes cross the classes and grades, ass. Don’t you know anything?

Why would the football coach be responsible for student athletes behavior in other classes? Shouldn't that teacher handle that?

Is the Chemistry or English teacher responsible when a athlete doesn't do well on the field? Are there consequences in class for that?

How could athletes be thugs in school?

Was Dave aware of this?
Does Dave claim he wasn't aware of this?
Or was this a 1 time thing?

The only standards Doc has, is being a average coach. Look at his past
This hurts the program and overall development of the players

Like him or not coach P did the right thing when the chips were down, no one else was willing to stand up for those BB girls

Coach P will always be a winner, he taught us life lessons through football.
If a few rules were fractured along the way, so be it.Yeah, he had our back and we had his.

Look at the players who went thru the program under P and are now thriving as adults: Doctors, Dentist, lawyers, firemen, police officers, teachers just to name a few.

He was old school, his methods may have been different, but you cant argue with the results on or off the field.

You people who are waking in your boots because of these fed investigations are so ignorant. ANYONE can file a complaint with these agencies. Filing a complaint and getting a decision go your way are two different things. You can file a complaint based on anything factual or not. The investigation is the important thing. The fact complaints were filed by Park who himself should be investigated by his own place of employment, means nothing but he needs to seek psychiatric help as he's a narcissistic, megalomaniac, attention seeking, soulless being.

I researched this man Park and his record is clean.

Great!! So we can look for more negative press in the new about Lake Braddock.

When does it end? The LB community is sick and tired of all this negativity and hope this saga ends soon.

Why don't they just transfer the principal to Gatehouse while this investigation is going on? This way you leave the school and the students out of this.

"Know ye the truth and the truth will set you free" John 8:32

Lots has happened in the past at LBSS - now is simply the tipping point. Before Kerns there was Clark, before Clark was Martino and the root of the progressive rot is found there. MM condoned abusive coaches then which happened across the spectrum of sports - these coaches also need to be held accountable for their actions as coaches appear to being held now.

Thomas and Kerns are scapegoats for past sins by previous administrators.

So you are saying abusive coaches were tolerated at Lake Braddock in the past?

How long has this been going on?

Hasn't Dave Thomas been the Principal at Lake Braddock for the last 8-10 years or so?

Isn't the Principal ultimately responsible for these types of mishaps and providing a safe environment for all students?

If he didn't know about any of these so called "abusive coaches" then shame on him for not knowing what goes on at his school. Parents fill out a end of the year evaluation for coaches in every sport, nothing ever came up there?

Mr. Thomas needs to be held accountable and fired for allowing any of this to happen.Lake Braddock use to have a great reputation as one the top schools in the state of Virginia, now it is a punch line to a joke.

Subject: Washington Post article: Education Department launches probe of Fairfax County school’s handling of harassment allegations

Good morning Honorable Fairfax County School Board Members.

I hope each of you and your families had an enjoyable holiday season and wish you a belated Happy New Year.

In case you missed it at the close of 2017, the Washington Post published a follow-up article confirming the ongoing DoE OCR federal investigation into sexual harassment at LBSS and the ensuing FCPS and SB cover-up.

The article can be found here: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/education/us-agency-launches-probe-of-fairfax-schools-handling-of-harassment-allegations/2017/12/22/52fd09ca-d6ee-11e7-a986-d0a9770d9a3e_story.html?

Additionally, WJLA-7 picked up the story: http://wjla.com/news/local/feds-probe-va-school-systems-handling-of-sexual-harassment-complaint-against-coach

As a courtesy heads-up, you may want to tune into WUSA-9 for the 11pm news on Thursday night as FCPS and Lake Braddock will start off 2018 in fine fashion.

The story will run in excess of eight minutes -- after commercials, that covers approximately one-third of the evening newscast. That's an amazing amount of coverage for a story about "improper conduct" and a complaint that was "unfounded and without merit."

Have a nice day!

Regards, Bill Park

Subject: Federal Investigation Opened - RE: LBSS Sexual Harassment & Ensuing FCPS Cover-up

Dear LBSS Booster Club Members:

Good afternoon.

In lieu of tonight's LBSS Booster Club meeting, I wanted to make sure you are all aware of the following:

Per letter dated November 2nd 2017, the United States Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights has announced that they have opened and will be conducting a formal investigation of the events that occurred at Lake Braddock regarding both the sexual harassment that occurred during the 2015-16 season on the LBSS girl's varsity basketball team and the subsequent sham investigations and cover-up by FCPS administrators and the Fairfax County School Board.

Presumably, this investigation will include LBSS Athletic Director Karl Kern's involvement in the retaliatory employment action taken against former LBSS football coach Jim Poythress and all of the actions taken by LBSS Principal Dave Thomas in response to the harassment that occurred.

Two additional/related items for you:

1. School Board Member Megan McLaughlin will be hosting a community round-table discussion at LBSS this WednesdayNovember 8th from 7:00 - 8:30 pm in the multi-purpose room (enter at Door #17 just to the right of the front entrance). The round-table discussion will focus on the upcoming budget projections, the new superintendent's goals, as well as any other issues or concerns you wish to discuss (i.e. the just announced federal investigation).

2. You can also ask Principal Thomas and/or Schoolboard member McLaughlin on when you can catch the next presentation of Principal Thomas' "Bulletproof" professional development seminar - which has been wildly popular among FCPS administrators and school board members, Virginia Department of Education officials, and Superintendents and executives of neighboring school districts. Please see below for a previous invitation that was sent out that explicitly details the topics that Principal Thomas will cover in his presentation.

P.S. In case you missed it back at the end of June, here is the Washington Post article that details what occurred that precipitated the federal investigation:

"BulletProof - Management Techniques to Survive a Crisis of Leadership"
Professional Development Seminar - Presented by Lake Braddock (Burke, VA) Secondary School Principal Dave Thomas - Time & Location TBD

Superintendents & School System Executives,

Good afternoon.

I would like to invite you and your respective staffs to attend a popular new professional development seminar being offered by Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) as approved and endorsed by FCPS' freshly-appointed Superintendent Dr. Scott Brabrand and its School Board Chairwoman Jane Strauss.

With the backing of Dr. Brabrand and Chairwoman Strauss, Lake Braddock Secondary School Principal Dave Thomas will explain and stress the survival tactics necessary to weather the storm and remain employed amidst challenging leadership environments when you are the central figure in Washington Post articles such as the article linked immediately below:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/highschools/at-lake-braddock-sexual-harassment-accusations-personnel-changes-and-lingering-resentment/2017/06/29/59a3d00e-5536-11e7-a204-ad706461fa4f_story.html?

Principal Thomas' "Bulletproof"seminar has already been offered to all FCPS high school and secondary school Principals and Assistant Principals, and Directors of Student Athletics as well Commonwealth Superintendent Dr. Staples and his staff; based on the positive feedback to date, the seminar could be implemented as a best practices practicum for administrators in other school systems.

Principal Thomas will cover topics including:
- How to sandbag your subordinates -- don't let your staff hem you in with e-mails documenting your knowledge of events
- Lying requires a conscious understanding (or documentary evidence) that you "know" what you said wasn't true
- Don't let a moral compass dictate your leadership direction
- Remain fit in stressful environments by running from the truth and shed weight by dodging responsibility
- Co-opt your chain of command so that they become enablers and co-conspirators (See FCPSExecutive Management)
- Intimidate and retaliate against witnesses -- "dead" men (and those who sign non-disclosure agreements) tell no tales
- Capitalize on the craven nature of those with alleged oversight responsibility (See School Board)
- Embrace the mockery of a sham of a mockery that is the FCPSinvestigative and disciplinary process
- Never apologize -- contrition shows weakness and reveals recognition of culpability
- Sanctimoniously proselytize core values to mask the fact that you don't possess them (ex. Integrity)
- Avoid the "third rails" of employee discipline -- don't engage in sexual relations with your subordinates -- but allowing sexual harassment of students under your purview remains permissible
- Selectively adhere to FCPSregulations to your advantage while ignoring others

- Stonewall the community and outlast their short attention spans and limited interest in investing the time and energy to protect their children
- Stay anonymous and remain out of the media especially the Washington Post - any publicity is bad publicity - except for propaganda you promulgate on Twitter
- Remain brazenly arrogant and rely on the odds being infinitesimal that a student/community advocate has the wherewithal and dedication to hold you accountable and ensure the safety and well-being of FCPS students

With appropriate implementation of the described leadership techniques and tricks of the trade, Dr. Brabrand and Chairwoman Strauss are confident that high school administrators throughout Virginia and the greater Washington, DC area will be well-prepared to similarly survive events that should have led to the administrator's professional demise and assist school districts in being able to retain such top-shelf talent as Principal Thomas.

Dr. Brabrand, Chairwoman Strauss, and I encourage you to schedule a date and time that works for you and your staff to join us in Burke for a presentation by Principal Thomas.

Thanks much.

My quest is to keep a 2 year old incident - that was handled by the AD gerting fired - alive so I can say I got the new athletic director and principal fired. Why do I care? Because those bastards disciplined my son for a DUI incident and when the football coach didn't report it to admin, they let him go. That football coach is my BFF and I have a guilty conscience because I got him fired. Damn those administrators for doing their jobs and following regulations that they are paid to enforce.

First the AD Clark, then the old football coach Poythress, next will be the new AD Kerns for his retaliatory employment action taken against former LBSS football coach Jim Poythress.

Also interesting that Bill Park who begged media outlets to cover "his" story knows the segment will be "8 minutes to include commercials". Is Bill Park paying for an infomercial?

It's old news. People lost their jobs and the investigation is complete. There's no new news, Peggy. You've been played by a narcissistic, psychotic parent gone wild - just like to Post reporter back in July that has been "reassigned" for falling for Park's bullshit. Just because Fairfax didn't share their findings with a psychotic parent demanding to see confidential information about their employees doesn't mean they didn't investigate.

Park is pissed because he's not important enough to know what was found in the investigation. The US Navy should investigate this psycho and take away his security clearance. He's a bad dude. His poor daughter. She must be so embarrassed.

The news report on Channel 9 was very informative.

The report clearly showed that coach Poythress was fired in retaliation for being what Dave Thomas stated "we now know who our mole is, its our football" coach" You saw the document right there on TV. This would seem to be a clear case of the Whistleblowers law. How can you argue its not, it right there in black and white

Also showed that the former ADs email to Thomas, he stated he made him aware of these allegations on the same day it was reported to him. So how can the principal say he didn't know about it.

Somethings not right, the principal should be held accountable? Instead it looks like he threw the others under the bus to save his self.

The LB community has been through enough already, in the best interest of the school and community, reassign the principal and make this someone else problem

Out of context. Media tells the truth every time? This is old and way over. Dave did not know what you think he knew. He just didn’t. He cannot fire people, Gateway does that, idiots. Where were the parents in the initial complaint? Why go to the DSA and then pout when nothing was done. No one went to Dave. Some random email and the DSA should have handled the investigation and didn’t. That’s why he has no job. Coach G is a creepy man and clearly a liar. Good riddance. Coach P cannot day “retarded” nor “faggot” in the classroom or on the field this day and time. Add in the Park boy’s alcohol related incident that Coach P covered up for saving the boy’s scholarship and that man had to go too. The county investigated. Done. Now shut up.

I have no vested interest in this mess, but I did see some alternative facts in the Peggy Fox investigation.

Gianelli was not a teacher. Just a coach.

Mike Clark was essentialy fired for not handling the complaint in proper fashion. Allowed to resign to keep retirement benefits, but listed as resigned.

What was the date on that letter from Clark to Thomas? I suspect he sent that after he knew he was being fired (perhaps a change if story?)

Why is "Poythress is the winningest coach in school history" relevant to a girls basketball story? Is this about the footbal coach or the girls basketball complaint.

Intereting investigation that seemed rather "gossipy" rather than newsworthy.

I have a reliable source that tells me he was reassigned because he fell for the lies of a sports parent. His article was a disgrace to the Post and his immaturity got in the way of reporting truth. From what I'm being told he won't be anywhere near crazy sports parents looking to spin a tale.

Yep. Man of the year! Dave has weathered multiple stupid ass storms with style and a calm demeanor like none other. The girls went to the DSA and didn’t get action. What was the advice of the parents at that point? Oh wait, they didn’t tell their parents but they’ll tell the press? Hello? Red flag!

What does “we have a mole” really mean anyway? Context people.

Park has everything to complain about too. His kid was caught drinking by FCPD. Coach P in FOOTBALL covered the kid. When Coach P was removed Park goes after Dave? Interesting turn of events, no? “Coach P covered for my kid. How about I go after you to retaliate?” That mess is unrelated to the basketball business. It’s all under the FORMER DSA as well.

Issue closed.

Dave, carry on. This shit is over and obnoxiously stinky.

Parents were involved from day 1.

Harassment is harassment, do you have a daughter? Would you allow this to happen?

According to the news report, it appears that the DSA reported this to the principal. I am not sure why this was not followed up on. When this thing blew up then everyone went to CYA mode.

The football coach was a witness (or Mole as it was described in the news report) who could collaborate the girls story, so he was fired.

The ultimate responsibility is on the Principal to provide a safe environment for all students. This did not happen in this case, therefore he should be held accountable and terminated.

Those girls did not alert their parents or they would have gone off after admin did nothing. They were advised to go above the DSA and they didn’t. The students let all that time pass by with no action? If Dave knew, he would have handled it. Add in the fact that he cannot fire or hire teachers and this is just dumb. The b-ball coach is gone. Good. He will never coach again. Coach P isn’t the only adult to corroborate the stories plus he’s not even the whistleblower! What did he have to gain or lose from what was going on in the basketball program with GIRLS?!? Think aboutbit. Coach P had to go. He couldn't teach, hold his tongue, or control his athletes. Game over.

Forward march, LBSS. By the way, “the principal” is not capitalized. An elected official should know that, don’t you think?

What an idiot!!

You have 16-17 year old girls who were brave enough to tell a school official when someone was doing wrong and you want to chastise them?

Dave Thomas knew when this happened and chose to do nothing. This has already been established. The football coach had nothing to gain is right, that's why Thomas wanted him out. He could corroborate the DSAs story

When the dust settles, Thomas will be out and the former football coach will have a nice settlement!!

Maybe Dave can hit him up for a loan..HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

GAME OVER!!!!

Does anyone disagree that a nexus exists? The only solution is to move Thomas immediately. We can argue whether he should be moved within the county or fired. But he has to go.
