01-30-2020 - Para Educator Talks About Sexual Assault by Student, by Dick Myers, Calvert County Times | PDF

02-13-2020 - Calvert County Times, letter to the Editor, by Superintendent Daniel D. Curry-Claims 'Huntingtown Horror' article is inaccurate, says CCPS follows policy/law and cares for and helps injured/traumatized employees, pretends he cares about student privacy, but then declines to elaborate.  When will the Board get rid of this liar and abuser? | PDF

2-5-20 Click HERE to read about the Mazyck Family, with kids at Patuxent Appeal Elementary and Mill Creek Middle School.  The Mazyck family has been subject to setups, abuse, lies and smears, just like we have, but worse in so many ways.   We have read quite a bit of their extensive documentation, and it's bad.  There will be a closed hearing at the CCPS Central Office tomorrow.  Video is not allowed, but there will be a transcriptionist.  Who continues to let this happen to them, and when will CCPS make it better?

The BOARD is responsible by law for protecting Superintendent Daniel D. Curry, and deciding whether he stays or goes.  What are the majority of CCPS Board members hiding?  How bad is it, and in how many ways?  Is that why they continue to protect Superintendent Daniel D. Curry?  Our suit for violations of the Public Information Act proceeds, and Daniel D. Curry's pre-Christmas threat to sue us was empty.  When we finally receive the records it will explain some of the reasons why Board President Bill Phalen, last President Dawn Balinski and recent President Tracy McGuire should all resign in shame.  The Mazyck family's story will, too.

Politicians from all over the area want things to change, but by law they can't do anything.  By law, the Calvert County Board of Education has to do it.  Is there a pedophile ring in CCPS?

CCPS PROTECTS KNOWN CHILD MOLESTERS

"They confirmed that Taylor was removed from Calvert Country School in January 2019 based on an allegation of inappropriate contact with a student, involving instant messaging, and at the conclusion of the investigation, he was removed from that school and placed at Barstow Elementary."  George Andrew Taylor hired by CCPS,

“1.0 Behavior Technician Calvert Country School 01/16/2018,” then demoted to “1.0 Behavior Technician to CCS 1.0 Instructional Assistant 1 / BAES 03/01/2019.”

JUSTICE FOR JENNIFER HUDSON

When will CCPS and Superintendent Daniel D. Curry stop interfering with her Worker’s Comp guaranteed access to prescriptions, so she does not continue to experience withdrawal symptoms and spend weeks rebuilding levels in her system, over and over again?  Will her attorney have to reopen her case?

(FULL ACKNOWLEDGMENT AND COMPENSATION)

Click HERE to learn what CCPS and MALICIOUS Superintendent Daniel D. Curry have done to former 2nd Grade Saint Leonard Elementary teacher Mrs. Hudson.  Are you a CCPS EMPLOYEE or VOLUNTEER who has been SICK or INJURED?  Were you assaulted in CCPS and don't trust CCPS to do the right thing?  Is CCPS protecting your assailant/s and doing everything they can to make you pay a price for theirs and others' INCOMPETENCE/ABUSE?  Do you fear going out on the FMLA (even on Doctor's Orders) and afraid of being terminated for "incompetence?"  Here are some papers which are good to have for those who may need to consider WORKERS COMP, INCIDENT REPORT FORMS and CCPS ASSAULT LEAVE policies.  Maryland is a RIGHT TO WORK state and malicious Superintendent Daniel D. Curry and the majority of the School Board exploit that to further betray innocent people who have been hurt by Curry and the Board's serial negligence and mismanagement.

·       06-13-2019 - Assistant Superintendent Diane Workman, some of these teachers have a lot of stuff, some of it is big and they need help.  It might belong to them personally, but they acquired it to facilitate their jobs, and have no other need for it.  How many teachers are being moved to a new building because of retaliatory transfers, which are a HUGE problem in CCPS, and which often occur at the expense of not only teacher wellbeing, but student instruction?  How many teachers might throw out their backs or have to find a friend with a big enough car to borrow?  Wait, if they have to file a Workers Comp claim because they fall or throw out their backs, they might face MORE retaliation.  What about any teachers with physical disabilities or weakness, what about them?  It’s time for an Assistant Superintendent who cares.

Curry, who retaliates against educators, students and families for trying to address abuse? - JPG

 

We have received quite a few, but not all of the records we requested, including inter and intra departmental transfer requests, general fund ledgers, approvals and vendor balance lists/similar name, etc..  Thousands of emails are missing from our communications request.  Superintendent Curry tells us they do not exist; we know and can prove that is not true.  Many of the financial records we did receive were not properly redacted and have compromising CCPS employee personal and financial information.  We will redact them before posting them online.

4/30/18 – Our Family’s Letter of Intent, turned in right after our daughter was set up and terrorized at SMS to force a false confession, in an attempt to hold her after school and keep us from meeting with CCPS administrators that afternoon.  Our daughter did not break and so they could not hold her after school.  We then received a phone call from a blocked number to keep us from the meeting and that didn’t work either - we also announced it was being recorded.  The shocking thing is the BoE knows this and so much more but has covered up everything. - PDF

4/30/18 - Calvert Recorder, Andrew Cephas - School board seeks to enhance code of conduct, solicits input on allowing weapons on clothing - PDF

With all the other problems in CCPS, including so much violence in the classrooms, who would invite anything that would desensitize people to symbols/representations of weapons in an educational environment, right after the shooting at Great Mills and the incident at Calvert High?  Why was that student returned to Calvert High not long after?

Why would Daniel Curry want to encourage the existence of any more stimuli for students and teachers to have to evaluate while trying to hide/flee or when contacting dispatch/loved ones? Why give law enforcement and other first responders anything else to evaluate with almost no time to think?

Why, of all times, was April 2018 the time to invite pictures of weapons in to Calvert County schools, not long after the protest in March and petition for better safety measures to be implemented by CCPS?  Do Board Members Dawn Balinski and Tracy McGuire not see the contradiction in their concern for starting to allow guns on t-shirts, while dismissing people’s suggestions for preventative safety measures?

With everything else going on in the schools, why did Daniel Curry initiate a debate about whether to start allowing kids to wear shirts with pictures of weapons because of first amendment rights, not long after he ordered CCPS middle and high school principals to disseminate his threatening letter that discouraged a walkout on the anniversary of the Columbine Shooting?  Why invite such pointless chaos and confusion? Are these manipulative tactics designed to distract from what is really happening?

In Sporting News (from 2019 Graduation Speeches):

Daniel Curry, a real man’s man,  puts “old friend” Nick Saban “on his back” 2, 3, maybe 4 times? as FOP Colts upset Idamay Black Diamonds in breakout performance! Says, “He kept coming from both ends!”

 

Plus, Daniel Curry, lying Superintendent, gives anonymous shout-outs to former student athletes who now teach in CCPS, including his recent second wife / former UMd swimmer/At-Risk Youth Director from the Lake Forest School District he ran in Delaware.  Can't help the hint dropping.  TOUCHING.  

So, why does Daniel Curry allow for and protect anyone who would make "suggestions and advances" (and worse) in CCPS, and against children?  Why did he and others work so hard to threaten our daughter and family, and why were none of our three kids safe in CCPS, despite how many caring educators there are?  Why is he so eager to protect the abusers, at the expense of the wellbeing of so many? 

The Calvert County Board of Education needs to start telling the truth, like we have been this entire time.  The majority of the five-member Board of Education may not have known everything, but they have been complicit in many things and have known A LOT, for a very long time.  We believe they don't want to admit their own roles, and for people to know about their selfishness, dishonesty, arrogance, negligence and inaction, which has hurt so many who attend or are employed by CCPS.  Instead, we must wait for our suits to progress.  The trial for our first suit, for violations of the Md Public Information Act, is not until September.  Then we will sue again, for what happened to our daughter, why our sons were not safe to remain in the system, and to expose myriad other abuses which impact everyone.  One must ask, why did it take twenty months before we received our first cease and desist communication, and why did it originate from Daniel D. Curry?  He has already employed different means, including threats, to try hurt our family and violate our First Amendment rights, and the cease and desist letter we recently received is only one more attempt at intimidation, because he is terrified of what our lawsuits will expose.  We hope CCPS does hurry up and sue us, because if they do it will help expose the abuse sooner than our second suit will.  Daniel D. Curry has always been able to exploit his role to intimidate people before, and he continues to try with us, all at taxpayer expense.  It won’t work.
