    First class move by USD 489. Marty deserves this and will do an excellent job.

      My guess is your families income must be impacted by you praising Mr Straub and the district admin? Just a guess…you must be employeed by the district as well?

  • no good

    This is no good. The one guy who thought 8 of my classmates were disposable and convinced them all to drop out.

    • hmmmmmm

      Hey Pattie, maybe you should have listened better while you were in school to people like Mr. Straub. It would have helped you spell correctly, and use appropriate punctuation.

    I think he will do just fine. I spent plenty of time “meeting” with him when i went to HHS. Never got a punishment i didn’t deserve. Your children are probly not the little angels you think they are. Maybe if you and your children would be a little more mature in situations he could help you and work with you a bit better. jeez…. people these days.

    Party Marty is a horrible administrator. I never could figure out how he got his big head through the front doors in the morning.

    The ducks talk Marty!

    I don’t agree with this one, I have worked professionally with him and have seen first hand the unprofessionalism he has. Not saying everthing he does is bad, and i’m not perfect, but in all the years from attending hays high to working professionally with him, this was one I hoped would not have happened when i heard Principal Hester was retiring. .

  • UncleThomas

    I do not know Mr Straub, but based on other principals in the district I would not expect much from the administration. There are three principals in the district which need to be replaced and for them to search for a progressive, competent, principal with expereince…well they will take the easiest way out and later blame it on the budget. You must realize we are in a small community and the board holds the strings by which the admin operates. Most want to hang on to their jobs as long as possible and retire in this community. Do not make any waves, do not rock the boat,…basically the “Ostrich Theory of Management”.

    i feel bad for the students next year..

  • Steve

    Now it’s time for USD 489 to get Victoria and Ellis to combine administration before the state requires it. Do we really need 3 Superintendents and who knows how many principals in Ellis County? No. We are throwing away money.

  • hmmmmmm

    I find it funny that these parents are blaming Mr. Straub for making their kids drop out of school. COME ON !!!! If you kid is dropping out of highschool, I am guessing they were doing more than getting mad at Mr. Straub. Remeber that if your kid is still living in your house, you have control if he goes to highschool. This is why you guys do not like Mr. Straub, he has control over students, and I am guessing most of the parents on here have no control over their kids, and this is why most of them are running the streets. I bet if some of these kids names from the past were released, we could look at the police report on thsi site, and their names would pop up on their periodicaly. But let me guess this is becuase Mr. Straub made them drop out of school. Come on parents WAKE UP. Your kid’s are perfect!!!!!!

    @hmmmmmmm- just as a response i know thay one of my classmates thay dropped out went to the learning center, went to college and graduated and now has a great job and has started a family. And to my knowledge has never been arrested. His parents are stand up people in our community and only taught their son to do his best. And i didnt know that in Hays America you ‘ran the streets’
