  • For my special needs son who has ADHD, our experience was frustrating at best. Advocay is not embrassed; battles were constant. Despite the endless amount of time ensuring his transition to the middle school was smooth, Skyway never transfered a pertinant information regarding his special needs plan and my son's teacher that year was unprepared to assist him. His teacher was either lacking in knowledge, skill and/or compassion but the end result was a miserable year for him. I am grateful for the positives we did have but want to put out a big FYI for the parents to watch their childs progression closely because lack of communication could result in failure, and I dont necessarily mean grades.

  • This school has provided many with a great education. Yes, they do have some kinks to work out but all in all Skyway elementary is great. The staff is wonderful and no matter what everyone in that building perseveres. The teachers, stuedents, and even the janitors; they are there to learn and help others learn as al schools should. So keep telling your stories of how pitiful Skyway is, go ahead tell more but that will never change or ruin their confidece.

  • When I registered my daughter for school I did not put her biological father’s information on the card. A week later the school counselor called and wanted to find out why he was not put on the card. I told her that he has pled guilty to domestic battery with his current wife, and was under criminal charges for statutory rape, stalking and wreckless driving. She showed concern and said that she would help with the situation until I could handle it legally. The next day she called and said that the school would place a “No Trespassing order” on him for my daughter’s and the schools safety. I felt relief that the school was going to help protect her outside my home. The counselor requested that I bring in a photo of him to have in my daughter’s file.

    The first day of school I brought in a photo for the secretary. When I handed her the photos and asked her to place them in the file she let me know that the father had come into the school and filled out a registration card and stated that he would be in today to see his daughter on her first day of school (first problem of NO communication). The secretary asked that I wait to speak to the counselor, so I waited. In speaking with her she notified me that they would not be stopping him from coming to the school. After she had already told me that the school was going to put a no trespassing order on him (problem #2). After taking my daughter to the court house to try and get a restraining order for the school, the school then called as said if she wasn’t in school today they would withdraw her on their own. So when the Judge didn’t grant the order I took my daughter back to school and had to sit in the parking lot all day because there was nothing that they would do for her safety while she was in school.

    A couple of days later the counselor called and said that the schools hands were legally tied. I called the school superintendent and she said for now to work it out with the school because they could not legally do anything (problem #3). I called the school and met with the principal, counselor and worked out with them that the school would call me when anyone tired to come and visit my daughter. The counselor said that she would communicate with the teacher and the Front desk staff. Because the legal portion of all of this was really complicated on my part and there’s, I agreed.

    Every day I called the office to verify that no one had come to see my daughter. In laps on Monday the 6th of October when I went to pick my daughter up from the after school program, she bust into tear when she saw me. When I asked the school assistant if she knew what was going on she stated to me that she saw the father in the school at lunch time (problem #4). No One Called me. Livid with anger I called the school and the Principal pick up the line. I asked who I was speaking with and she stated her name. When I asked why I was not notified that he came to the school she said that she didn’t know what I was talking about. And continued to state that there wasn’t any info in her file about me needing to be called for any visitor and that most of the time they do not pull the students file when visitors come. Under further investigation the father spent all of the lunch hour with my daughter and brought his sister and kids in and further met with the teacher and brought snack into the classroom. This school stated that they cannot control what happens in the school all the time, and when it gets busy it becomes harder to handle what is going on. When talking with people from the school directly and the district they said that the school has over 600 kids and how are they supposed to know of special circumstances with each kid. I thought that communication with them in the beginning started by the school that the circumstance would be known. However, if they do not pull files when visitors come and cannot make exception for all parents, who children are safe in this school?

  • While I've been pleased with the teachers at this school, the leadership is sorely lacking. When my son in kindergarten found a condom on his school bus and blew on it, I called the principal and was entirely blown off. While the bus service might not be within her control, I expected her to be my advocate and help me find a way to ensure this sort of thing wouldn't happen in the future. Thankfully the Director of Elementary Education was helpful.

    This year, I enrolled my son in cross country track. My husband went to pick him up at 4pm, and couldn't find him anywhere. The next day when he went to the sitter's instead of track practice, no one called us with any concerns.

    Additionally, I'd ordered a track team t-shirt when he enrolled in the program. I sent a check to pay. I was sent home a slip of paper 2 weeks later notifying me that they'd received my order without payment, and that I needed to send payment by the next day if I wanted the shirt. Funny, my check had been cashed 2 weeks earler, including a stamp by the school district.

    I really just can't trust my son's safety outside of the classroom at this school.
