Apparently keys are taken as a standard operating procedure at the end of the school year during close out for inventory and accountability purposes. Everyone not in season has to turn in their keys in May, according to one of the OE members. Don't believe the hype by a writer who hangs out with the coach on weekends. That is biased at best. That said, why would a principal who is known for his focus on the testing process create a distraction so close to the testing week? The answer is he would not. There was no intent to fire the coach, based on what I have been told. According to the head coach of another sport, all teachers and coaches were told that there would be no after school events unless the sport was in season for the purpose of encouraging students to attend tutoring and study sessions. This is great because my student athlete actually goes to tutoring now. This school jumped up about twenty points in six months, so what he does works. So, to answer your question about what kind of a man this is? He is a man who has been the only principal to see this school to a competitive academic year....ever. You worship Ken Cross because he wins basketball games. This man is a former Special Ops combat vet, a brilliant educator, and my daughter even has him for a teacher during the school day. What has Cross done besides coach basketball? And did you see that early in his career, he worked at seven schools in nine years? Not the first time he flew the coop. If a principal wants keys, he should get the darned keys! He is the principal. Cross was the coach. In my opinion, peole need to know their roles or go home. By the way, did you know that this school had a shooting at it last year? What did Cross do about that? Nothing. He didn't apply to be the principal. So let him go to East Bladen. And if you have a problem with the principal, go and see him yourself. You will agree with me if you do. I know both men. I choose Fin over any coach, any day. At least while I have a kid in that school.
