Irwin County Middle School WAS a great school until this current year, The "official" seems more concerned about overly disiplining students instead of encouraging them to try harder and be positive. The teachers are as good as they can be but under hese new ridiculous rules even they are frusterated! My child has attended Irwin County Schools for 8 years and iv never had a problen until now! Also, in 8 years she has never been in ANY trouble and now she just dont care bc of the officials new policy that does absolutley NOTHING but discourage them and leave them confused! I dont stand alone on this issue either. Several parents are experience it and have transferred out. If the board members would do their job which is to look out for the wellbeing of our children, instead of saving face, they would realize just how much they have neglected these kids that only want to succeed in life! Parent involvment dont exsist unless the situation is critical or a parent just dropps by!All about who u r and how much butt kissing u do!
