You are invited to the ABOVE THE INFLUENCE event to support Broward County Youth and what they are ABOVE!!!!

You are invited to the ABOVE THE INFLUENCE (ATI) event to support Broward County Youth and what they are ABOVE!!!!

“Above the Influence”  IT'S A STATE OF MIND. It’s about being yourself and not letting negative influence get to you. Pressure to drink, do drugs, be thin, discriminate against others, act violently, take steroids, join a gang, or do anything that goes against WHO YOU ARE, in order to fit in—that’s negative influence. And if you’re one of the people who want to stay above it, you’ve come to the right spot. RISE ABOVE. CHANGE YOUR LIFE. JOIN THE MOVEMENT. CHANGE THE WORLD.

“Above The Influence: Broward County”  is a group of people, united to improve the statistics of youth involved in positive activities and behaviors that grant access to a life with great purpose. Among the many who stand with us are numerous local agencies, in and around Broward County, Florida, who share the vision for a better, healthier future for our youth and their families.

To kick-off the ATI movement, the event will start on May 18th at 9:00 AM at the K.C. Wright Building, 600 SE Third Ave. in Ft. Lauderdale, with a march to the Huizenga Plaza.  Once at the Huizenga Plaza youth will join the teen rally and be able to display their talent such as step teams, spoken words and dance to show what keeps them ABOVE THE INFLUENCE.

Weston schoolteachers are double dipping

A Broward County Schools internal audit uncovered that several teachers at a South Florida school were pocketing National Parent Teacher Association funds for extracurricular activities during school hours while also collecting regular wages.
The principal and PTA chapter of Manatee Bay Elementary School are being investigated in connection to Club 2:05, an afterschool club run by the PTA. According to the group's letterhead, it is "not an aftercare program," which separates it from the district's afterschool programs.
Some parents pay more than $1,000 to enroll one child for eight weeks. According to Club 2:05 documents, the fees "can be paid by cash, check made payable to Manatee Bay PTA or by credit card."
Several parents said, however, that the club does not provide them with a receipt for their payments. "We don't receive a receipt," said parent Liliana Skalla.
According to the audit, the school's PTA chapter does not issue receipts for some transactions for Club 2:05. The audit report reads in part, "When receipts are not used, there is a lack of accountability, making it impossible to confirm whether monies collected were deposited.

Manatee Bay principal Heather Hedman-Devaughn has been notified of the audit, and she's familiar with the process. According to a School Board letter, she was audited in 200 while she was the principal at Lauderdale Manors Elementary. The inventory audit was conducted after items like computers and a piano went unaccounted for.
Upset parents took to the Internet to voice their disapproval on a blog.

Mold At Manatee Bay Elementary

Parents have been complaining about the corruption in Manatee Bay Elementary to the Superintendent, the School board and the School Police. It seems that "someone" is covering the corruption! But is NOT admissible to have the students in a school that is falling apart. There is visible mold, the walls are falling apart, the school is filthy, when are the School Board Members and Superintendent going to take action to all of the complains and do something about it? Mold is VERY dangerous and NOBODY should be expose to it especially little children.  We also notify the Superintendent and school board members that the principal violated the Jessica Lungsford Act, by allowing private companies that where not badge and clear by the school district to work with our children and endangering our children. Who is covering for her and why is she getting away after parents have given evidence to the Superintendent, School police and School Board Members. WESTON IS A 65% HISPANIC COMMUNITY WE DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THEY DON'T HAVE A HISPANIC PRINCIPAL AND THE ONLY LATIN AP IN WESTON IS ON MEDICAL LEAVE AND SHE WAS THE ONLY GOOD THING MANATEE BAY HAD.

Broward County School Corruption 

Parents have notify the Broward County School Police of the corruption in Manatee Bay Elementary in Weston Fla. The PTA and the Principal send a letter Sept 2012 that they no longer would do catalog sales that they would do the duck donations parents that would donate $50 the kids would go to a mega party, parents that would donate $100 kids would go to a mega party. It is illegal to exclude kids because the parents cannot afford to donate $100 and the principal was advised that parents where not happy about it and she promised the parents that she would include all the children. Oct 31,2012 Manatee Bay had the Mega party it was during school hours and ONLY the children that paid $100 where allow to go to the cafeteria and enjoy the party with the Miami Heat getting souvenirs, pizza and dance. The kids that parents send cash did not get invited since any cash that goes into Manatee Bay disappears.
That is DISCRIMINATION, what do we want to teach our children? that  ONLY the children that parents have money can go to parties and enjoy the school? do we want the kids to be separated the rich kids and the poor kids they have to be punish because the parents cannot afford to donate $100 is that a good example?
The famous 205 Clubs run by the PTA and Principal at Manatee Bay are violating the Jessica's law, They are private companies that are not cleared with children. Any company working in any Public school has to have a badge and be clear with Broward County School Board. Again the principal gets away with the corruption since the Chief of school police David Golt was notify and he chooses to ignore.
