    JAMES NOTED CONCERNS THAT A MAY 2nd MEETING OF THE HOSPITAL AUTHORITY WAS CALLED WITHOUT APPROPRIATE NOTICE, MAKING THE MEETING ILLEGAL.   SINCE THEN, FIVE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD HAVE OBTAINED THEIR OWN LEGAL COUNSEL.
    JAMES GOES ON TO CONTEND THAT BOARD CHAIR DR. DARRELL WELDON SIGNED AN AGREEMENT WITHOUT THE FULL KNOWLEDGE AND CONSENT OF AUTHORITY MEMBERS, UNDERMINING THE WISHES AND REQUESTS OF THE MAJORITY OF THE AUTHORITY BOARD.   THE SETTLEMENT PLACED DEMANDS THAT WALKER AND CATOOSA COUNTIES PAY ERLANGER… AND IN EXCHANGE… THAT ERLANGER WOULD NOT SUE EACH INDIVIDUAL MEMBER OF THE BOARD.

*   WALKER COUNTY SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT DAMON RAINES SAID GILBERT ELEMENTARY’S POOR SHOWING IN THE STATE “SCHOOL CLIMATE STAR RATING” IS NOT REFLECTIVE OF THE ACTUAL ENVIRONMENT OF THE LAFAYETTE ELEMENTARY.
    RAINES SAID THE GILBERT SCORE SUFFERED BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN THE SURVEY PORTION.   THIS WAS THE FIRST YEAR THAT POOR SURVEY PARTICIPATION COUNTED AGAINST THE OVERALL SCHOOL CLIMATE RATING.

    CLIMATE RATING SCORES ARE CALCULATED USING ATTENDANCE AND DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS AS WELL AS SURVEYS TURNED IN BY STUDENTS, PARENTS AND TEACHERS.
    RAINES CONCLUDED THAT GILBERT’S SCORE DOES NOT INDICATE PROBLEMS WITH STUDENT SAFETY ISSUES.
    GILBERT PRINCIPAL MATT HARRIS APOLOGIZED FOR THE LOW RATING.  BECAUSE THE SCHOOL MISSED THE TARGET OF 75-PERCENT COMPLETION OF STUDENT SURVEYS, GILBERT ELEMENTARY RECEIVED ZERO POINTS ON THAT SECTION OF THE EVALUATION, RESULTING IN THE DROP TO A 2-STAR RATING.   GILBERT RECEIVED THE HIGHEST RATING… 5-STARS… THE YEAR BEFORE.  “I AM SORRY THAT OUR SCHOOL WILL HAVE A NEGATIVE PERCEPTION BECAUSE OF A MISTAKE ON MY PART”, HE SAID.
