New Summit Schools Changing Leadership

New Learning Resources, Inc, issued the following statement.  It is the parent company of New Summit School.

New Learning Resources, Inc. (NLR), the operating entity of the New Learning Resources School District, plans to keep open all schools within the district. It is our goal to continue providing the same innovative learning opportunities that our students, their parents, and the community deserve and expect without disruption. We have no plans to close or suspend operations of any schools.

The New family is currently transitioning out of the day-to-day operations of NLR. Oversight of daily operational functions of the organization will transition to an interim director, whom we plan to announce shortly.

In the meantime, we want to reiterate to our valued students and their parents, faculty, administrators, and others associated with NLR that we plan to keep each of these valuable educational institutions open now and into the future.”

Kingfish note: "New Summit Schools" was used in the headline because that is the name familiar to most readers.

But same ownership. From a legal standpoint how does that work?

Why would ownership of the schools change at this point? Have the accused already been found guilty?

Doesn't matter if they step out of the daily operations or not. They still own the company, control the board, and set policy. Whoever takes over as CEO will be nothing but a puppet to the News. This is nothing more than a public relations reaction to protect their reputation. It accomplishes nothing in reality.

MDHS needs to terminate the sweet contracts they gave the News' organizations and either provide the services themselves or bid the contract out on a truly competitive basis.

Yes they are guilty.

Any other questions?

'Transitioning Out'.

I've had to terminate the employment of a lot of people but never documented the reason as 'Transitioning Out'.

I might would just say replacement, but I wouldn't call it leadership.

8:39, no they haven't been found guilty in a court of law, yet. However, name me one situation where what has been presented would be a cause for being found not guilty. I bet two things, 1) you cant come up with anything & 2) you wont reply to this comment.

There are currently a lot of families and children who depend on those schools. To shut them down would be further tragedy to an already tragic situation. However, for profits to be directed elsewhere might be a good idea.

I understand from a reliable source that Nancy New will be replaced by none other than "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.

I'm hearing ...." The Rock"..will soon be in Jackson...and take over all operations of the school. Now that is impressive!

The whole "vouchers for special needs children" was a scam from the beginning, pushed by legislators on the take from big donors wanting to open charter schools. This gets the camel's nose in the tent, with more "special needs" to come in the future, until we have private schools everywhere getting state money.

If private and charter schools will elevate the status of education in this state, what the fuck difference does it make if they 'get state money'. The children who will come out the other end of the education pipeline won't have color-coded dots on their foreheads indicating the origin of the money that propped up their school...will they?

If we are going to educate children, we are going to pay for it, one way another. Same is true if we are NOT going to educate them.

the change in operation of New Summit will not negate the millions in TANF funds stolen by the owner and possibly education funds as well. A true welfare queen.

The real crimes have yet to even be mentioned. This is just another example of cronyism and nepotism rampant in the Mental Health entities of the state. Some smart reporter could do well to investigate the origin of these current situations. The creation of CPS and its rapidly inflated budget 6million to 110 million in less the 6 months, all to try to settle a 14 year old lawsuit with DOJ. The granting of fat contracts to the same old groups that created the environment for these lawsuits in the first place. We now can see these folks names. Families First, Family Resource, MECE. There are still others that need to be audited Mississippi Children's Home, now Canopy, all of the Community Mental Health Centers, and any that received CPS and block grant funds. Ultimately, the department of Mental Health should be scrutinized and held accountable for the wanton disregard and lack of stewardship for the third largest budget in the state. It is a shame that the most vulnerable and chronically victimized in our state continue to be taken advantaged of and denied care. I challenge those in this forum and in our government to expose this abuse and seek to grant justice to all those harmed and forgotten by our broken mental health system.

@8:56am You are 100% correct. Sadly, I don’t see how the system will ever change.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.
