Top Joplin R-8 official tied to attendance fraud

The state auditors reviewing the Joplin R-8 School District have been provided with information linking a top deputy in the C. J. Huff Administration to possible attendance fraud.

The auditors have already been provided documented evidence of a principal encouraging his staff to lie about attendance, but the Turner Report has learned that the latest evidence implicates someone much higher up in the Huff Administration, with an office at the district's Administration Building at 32nd and Duquesne.

The auditors' work in the past few weeks has included probing visits to two of the district's secondary buildings, as well as continued work in the Administration Building.

Personally, my guess would be Jason Cravens. That goody goody has always been the fall boy for the admin. They are, of course, all dirty in some way, but when the hammer falls I expect a scapegoat, ie Cravens, to be put out to the community. Huff will never allow himself to be implicated directly and I'm 100% sure Cravens will drink the kool aid College Heights gives him to protect Huff.

They need to visit South Middle School. There's proof if they look. I know, I was there.

7:23 you might be surprised at what College Heights won't do for Huff after he called them liars over the TCO before school started. They aren't any bigger fans of Huff than MSSU! Everytime he opens his mouth he becomes a bigger fool, just like Biden, two of a kind!

I find it funny that Irving is all over attendance! I have documents proving my childrens absences were 'fixed' last year. This year, MRS. VORHEES, school councilor is all over people. Calling, sending letters. At five days. Last year, 30+ days with nothing. NILA VANCE is now trying to cover her butt. Attendance fraud at IRVING is/ was huge last year!! I pray that all these do good, followers get thier asses caught. Our district is an embarrassment!

Check McKinley Elementary's attendance records as well. Also how many times what is called"behavior"is swept under the rug and never reported. That principal Mrs Hart who has not a clue needs to be sent packing alomg with so many at the.bunker on 32nd. She is not qualified nor does she have the common sense to lead the staff or most importantly the students. So many children are out of.control but she feels they just need a snack and the kids even tell their teachers they act up because they know Mrs Hart will give them a snack. Not sure what it will take to have her realize how badly the school is being run. Hopefully not a child or staff member being injured by a student.

I know for a fact the Mr. Boyd at JHS is dirty. He was principal for the Class of '13 and there were grades, attendance, and lots more fixed just to get the graduation rate CJ wanted. Under this administration, any means can be justified to reach the end desired. Up to that point, and since, I have never seen so much use of "seat time" to recover credit.

The fraud committed by Joplin R-8 runs so much deeper than attendance once you get past the surface.

What CJ wants CJ gets. That has been proven many times.

South Middle School has nothing to hide. You're barking up the wrong tree.

It's funny Huff's extreme focus on attendance and graduation rates. It's like he can't understand that the numbers that matter are the ones that reflect knowledge and ability, the numbers that are intended to measure learning (the purpose of a school).

You can bet at the end of the day Huff won't take responsibility for causing the attendance statistics to be altered. He will simply lie, as usual, and let somebody else take the fall.

Terri Hart is still the principal of McKinley?? I thought she'd been sent packing.

Mark Barlass over Special Ed needs to be looked at. He is paying people from Crowder to come in and quote " train the staff, they (the staff) have been injured and when hurt they get blamed for it, this guy needs to go.
