Deputy superintendent gets super Virginia job ...
GoodbyeC wrote - Although I wish the Constantinos well, it is time for them to move on. I do think they had good intentions for the CCSD, but I do not agree with their leadership skills. I think you can get your employees to perform their best by good communication with them, motivating them to do their best and treating them with respect, not by fear, intimidation and bullying.

Jimmy B wrote - The CCSD has lost a pretty talented person in Constantino, just look at his credentials. Its easy to say that people feared him, but why did they fear him, maybe they know, deep down, they aren't performing at an adequate level.
Who's next? wrote - Can we load Brock and Clay on the yellow farewell bus, too? Then we will be able to truly build a great school district without fear. School board members, especially you new ones, be sure to think for yourselves and not believe everything you are told by B&C. We are counting on you to think beyond their "directives" for your anticipated robotic responses ... and we can tell when you are not.
Just plain tired wrote - As a teacher in this system for more years than I would like to admit, I have never seen the type of reign of terror these folks brought with them.
CCSD Teacher wrote - The SPED plan, the best that I can tell, created another layer of beaurocrats. It really goes back to one question - will one single student benefit by the level of beaurocracy that was created by Peggy and supported by Steve? Instead, Cobb now has another layer of people who are so far removed from the classroom that no school/student benefits.
NewName wrote - Regardless of what Dr. Constantino's abilities or intentions were, his continuing on with Cobb County would have been a moot point. We should have screamed louder when his spouse was allowed to report to him or when he was promoted without fanfare to his current role. How those two situations were handled pretty much sealed his fate under a new board and a new superintendent. Let us just all wish him better luck in his next role and focus on improving our district.
Otis BB wrote - Come bloggers, let's tear down a good edcuator. Can't you people be happy with anything? The "regular" bloggers to the CCSD articles are the most critical lot of people I've ever seen. Not happy with anything. You all need to reasses your life. Why is being distructive so important to you all? Let's see, his high school was ranked #1 by Time magazine. He must be a horrible educator. Get a life people.

HQ Special Educator wrote - I have been in this field for a long time and have never seen anything like this leadership with the Constatinos. It is like the blind leading the blind. I don't know how Cobb got away with hiring individuals who came into the district not certified or highly qualified.
John C. Calhoun wrote - This is a sad day for CCSD. The naysayers need to be careful for what they wish for. CCSD has now lost three of its best leaders, Constantino, Sanderson, and Pritz. Good luck finding talented folks to come work in Cobb when you pay less than the other districts and you have a dysfunctional board.

thankful10 wrote - Very good news for Cobb. Glad to hear it. I've not met one teacher, and I am one, who supports the visions of the Constantinos! Virginia, you are next. Steve- can we help you pack?
TeacherInCobb wrote - Thank you JESUS! I wonder if they need help moving?
