Pitt Co. School Superintendent Gets Good Marks In Evaluation

Pitt County's school superintendent got a positive report card back from her bosses at the school board this week.

Dr. Beverly Reep, who has led the school system for almost five years, was given a positive annual evaluation.

School board chair Mary Grace says Reep received "excellent feedback from the members of the Board of Education in all areas of the evaluation", according to a news release.

"The Board has a great deal of confidence in Dr. Reep and her abilities," said Grace. "Leading the district through redistricting was a major task this year and continuing the pursuit of Unitary Status will be just as challenging; however, we have total and complete confidence that Dr. Reep has the leadership skills to successfully see the Board through this next major project."

Reep was given the evaluation in a closed door meeting on Monday.

    To: public school mom - I wasn't saying all parents were not involved. However, I think more need to be. Many of the things that are done in our county are not done for the benefit of the kids. Unfortunately with the economic state of the country - the cutbacks make it almost impossible for art departments, music departments and most departments to continue to operate as they once did. This again, is NOT Dr. Reep's doing, she too works for the state and it is what it is. I don't think she tries to personally take down departments anywhere in Pitt Co. I also doubt very highly that she lacked in facts. One thing she deserves kudos for is having the facts. That doesn't make every decision she makes perfect or beneficial but again - she gets the bad name for making the big decicions. For the record - I too am one of those highly involved parents and additionally one of those hard working teachers. I'm not a hater though!

    That is not just a problem in Pitt County it is state wide. Schools are evaluated based on their suspension rates as well as drop out rates. If you suspend them all or let them drop out it makes for bad evaluations. If you let them stay in the building it lowers test scores. There are many children that are attending high school in this state because some judge told them they had to. They did not tell them they had to succeed. Part of the problems in education are the students that have a teach me if you can mentality. If a student is failing a class why does the state think they should pass the EOC or EOG? It makes no sense. English and math determine promotion in the younger grades (sometimes) and people wonder why science and history scores are low when they reach high school. Why don't we have more trade schools. Many of our schools are full of students that would greatly benefit from learning a trade instead of expecting them to all go to college.Keep up the false praise

    Principals, Teachers and Students view her as a joke. She and the board are out of touch with reality. She should have been fired long ago and I agree the school’s PR person should have also. I always say to myself is this really the best Pitt County can do when I view them performing their job. I do predict they both will be gone soon and hopefully we can get a more realistic approach to educating our children and understand this is what can happen when we allow incompetent people in office. Sometimes you get what you vote for. To be sure Dr. Creep is educated well enough to realize her bosses that think she is doing a good job just lost there’s. Hint hint you are next. People in Pitt County the winds are changing. I promise. I wonder if anyone's verified her credentials.

    To Hmm, I am a parent that is very involved in my kids schools. I do all the things that you .have mentioned. I also know of some things that DR. Reep has tried to do to the arts departments in our schools that was not to the benefit of our hardworking teachers or dedicated Students. Some of these decisions were made by her with out having all the facts or consulting with the teachers and schools.

    One way to make the schools better is to let the principals stay in their buildings more. They get called away to so many meetings at central office to be told what they and their teachers are doing wrong that they are hardly ever present at their schools. Also, stop creating positions for poor performing administrators. If teacher jobs are on the line at schools with low EOG scores, why are the administrators at those schools promoted to higher-paying positions?

    To Jill, why dont you go to law school and stop cying about being a teacher!? Sound like you have too many issues of your own. Stop crying and keep working so we can support this great woman!

    Bystander you set it all. I am an educator and totally agree. I have worked for our past three Suptintendents many of which these same people posting did not like and could not wait to get rid of them. Dr. Reep keep trying to do your best. Maybe the a some of these people with get a grip and realize that the redistricting that the makeup of the Greenville school is as good now as it will other get unless the white students are bussed into Greenville from Winterville.

    What a joke...she pushed a MAJOR alteration to the redistricting options that had been on the table for months. The uniform policy is a joke...we now have to have TWO wardrobes for our children. Violence is UP in schools. FIRE her.

    Maybe people should put the energy into their children that they put into bashing the Superintendent and the board. I don't support all of the local decisions in the schools, that is for sure. However, try being in charge of all of these schools with teachers that are paid so poorly to put up with some kids that don't want to learn, don't want to be there, have no support at home and who have parents who could care less about education. That is quite a task. Pitt County has a long way to go but we are making growth and improvements. It is so easy to blame Reep for all of the problems in the county ~ typical Greenville style...so easy to moan and groan but not do what is needed by each parent etc. Enter the classrooms, do your part, help the teachers ~ be part of the school community ~ join the PTA and be part of the villiage that raises all of these children ~ then you might have grounds to criticize!! Hats off Dr. Reep - I wouldn't trade you places for the world!

    There are a lot of comments of the "she a terrible administrator" type. Could you all cite specific examples on how Reep has done a "horrible" job for Pitt County? Keep in mind that she inherited the 2005 redistricting plan from her predecessor.
