A series of events (see additionalstories below) helped to stop that from happening; however,in an effort to remove the program completely and utterlyfrom our campus-and every campus which houses traditionalstudents-a campaign named
“Stop East Academy Plans atCapital High School”
has been implemented. Concerned

If you are aconcerned, taxpaying Kanawha County citizen, your attendance at this meeting is strongly encouraged! Pleaseread below for additional information regarding this topic:
Letter to Board Members and Dr. RonaldDuerring:
“In response to the April 14 statement from Dr. RonDuerring, “Giles had been told about the plan,” pleaseexamine the following chronology of events:As a frame of reference and as background knowledge,during the ‘Watergate’ investigation, Sen. Sam Ervin, thechairman of the committee conducting the investigation,asked a two-part question of each defendant and witness.That question was, “What did he know and when did he knowit?”In a meeting held in the office of Mr. Mark Milam, KanawhaCounty Schools Assistant Superintendent for Secondary,Adult, Vocational Technical, and Alternative Education on
August 23, 2010
, that included Mr. Roy Jones, Principal of East Academy, Mr. Milam, and me, I stated the following,which was scripted into the notes that I carried into thatmeeting:
First, I need to begin by stating for the record so that allwill know, that I do not, have not, and will not support theproposed expansion of the East Academy program in theCapital High School building where I am presently theprincipal.
 
At no time have I ever given Mr. Jones oranyone else a different impression.
 
In fact, in my most recent conversation with Dr. Duerring(06/28/10), I expressed that sentiment in no uncertainterms.”
