Just saw the I-Team report and thought it was a good overview of the problems that are being covered up by the school. Randy needs to do a follow-up in depth investigation to really expose this place for what it is.

I'm not much of a Fox News fan, but I thought this was an excellent report. Hopefully, Fornits readers will go to the Fox website where this story and the video is posted and comment, urging Randy Travis, the reporter, to do a follow-up report on how Bucchi has been able to keep all this covered up for so many years, going into his contacts with state regulatory agencies, law enforcement, and those highly placed in the judiciary. This is a conspiracy of the first order, and this will have him and those whose strings he pulls on the defensive. But we all know from experience he has hidden cards up his sleeve, and money in his pocket. He's probably out right now trying to buy all the "friends" he can purchase. We need Fox to drop another bomb on the little bastard while he's on the run.

This was a pretty good piece.  I think it didn't convey the the degree to which children are endangered not only by the population there, but also by the program itself which is pure quackery.

Len looked like he was a hundred years old, fat, bloated and unwell.  Man, he has gone downhill fast.

Here's what there is... I couldn't find it last night either. Publication time stamp appears to be earlier this morning:

I-Team: Ridge Creek School

Published : Friday, 08 Jul 2011, 5:41 AM EDT
Updated: Friday, 08 Jul 2011, 5:53 AM EDT




ATLANTA - Parents and former employees say a school for troubled teens is doing more harm than good. The allegations come in official complaints to the state and lawsuits filed against the owner of Ridge Creek School in Dahlonega.

I-Team reporter Randy Travis says the problems came to a head in January when authorities say students there started a riot. Click the video to view the full report.

Agreed, but this story took months of work and years to bring forth as you well know.  It will all come out now. The third week in June, Georgia's GAO went into Ridge Creek.  They are federally mandated and have access to all state-wide records.  

At least the "mini-riot" or non riot was exposed for what it was and the 911 call logs reflected 61 between 2009-2011 which included 21 runaways, distribution of 4 civil suit papers, 2 riots, battery, ems, unruly child, etc made up the rest.  The Sheriff was not forthcoming about this, although I give him credit for admitting the suicide attempts by hanging were not reported; this also shows the ORCC lied and was not forthcoming regarding the 105 citations and the ORCC stating that only 7 were an egregious enough of a violation to warrant adverse action.  The reports do not lie.  The attempted suicides by hangings received nominal grading on the Matrix scale applied.  They revoked Downing Clark for far less and grades the same violations far higher on the scale. For reference, there are two articles, see Downing Clark at http://http://www.jilliestake.blogspot.com

The liens Randy Travis produced were not all of them.  Two more lawsuits have been filed, although small in Magistrate Court, with more to follow.

Jill, job well done and to all that worked tirelessly to shut these hell holes down. I find it commendable that you folks (Jill and others) keep going after the powers to be and holding them accountable.

Well done, all. This is a story that needs to be told and told until it is history. And what seems like a whole other story & perhaps someone might have insights into the whys of this, but WTF re: the ORCC and the ineffectual (to the point of seeming negligently derelict in their duties) non-action thus far? Is it too much to hope the GAO purview extends into investigating that?

Not to worry.  Patience is thinning, but all in good time.  The GAO is investigating.  There is no possible way that the Advanc-Ed (SACS) Accreditation Team paid a thorough visit on February 8th and 9th of 2011.  If indeed they did tour the entire facility, checked records, check the educational programs (including Special Education for the IEP and 504 students that the school markets to and admits), checked teacher certifications and rosters,  and the fiscal viability of this facility, the accreditation would not have happened - probationary accreditation would not be so much of an embarassment. Did they ever find Quirk and Quirk's infamous "lab"  blunder?

First, the Advanc-Ed team would have noticed that there were broken windows everywhere and boarded up as the windows were not replaced at that time.  According to Advanc-Ed, the "team" was not aware of the January event/riot.  Obviously, if the "team" toured the school, it could not have been missed. So which is it?  Horseblinders?

Reports are coming from agencies and parents that the facility looks unkempt, run-down, dorms are filthy, mold again, boarded up broken windows, and  that the fire damage from 2007  has never been remedied.

Second, if the accreditation "team" bothered to check, they would have found that there was no DIrector of Academics, which is a requirement for accreditation.  Did they meet up with a sockpuppet?  Advanc-Ed still has Mr. Donald Mull's summary on their web-site and he quit last year.  There was no Assistant Director of Academics, and there certainly was no certified Special Education teacher.  Again the "Visual Arts" certified teacher that quit, only had a "consultative" Special Education certification. They had all resigned. According to the GAPSC, one of the teachers has a lapsed certification since 2009 and another touts a  "Life Certificate" that the GAPSC has no record of, and stopped issuing after 1974.  So which is it?   More importantly, how was this missed?  Too much wining and dining again?  Advanc-Ed (SACS) has stated that since our last hurrah with SACS in 2005 over this same garbage, the facilities can no longer request their own reviewers.  Duh, ya think? What a welcome monumental leap.

Third - Out-of-state IEP and 504' students come under the ICPC -  Was adherence to this checked before allowing accreditation? It is certainly unusual to transport Special Needs children across state lines to a Special Needs Edcuational Program that does not exist...

Fourth - Although Advanc-Ed (Sacs) is a private company, and fought being held to GORA(Georgia Open Records Act), the last few years they state they are opening up to more transparency. Perfect timing to err big time.  If Advanc-Ed does this, they will have much explaining to do to make SACS accreditation a worthy score.  Either way, after Ridge Creek Schools  "rebuttal," er, marketing gesture to the FOX NEWS I-TEAM REPORT blaming parents for Ridge Creek's admission of inappropriate plebes ,it shall be interesting to see if Advanc-Ed steps up to the plate, or they attempt to blame Mr. Rogers.
