Petition to Remove Parkway High School Principal Starts Even More Drama


The idiot president of the Bossier Parish school board is only making this worse for himself and those involved. Presley is president of the Bossier Parish School Board for those wondering.

quote:

BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -
A group of parents in South Bossier have created a petition calling for the Bossier Parish School Board to fire Parkway High School Principal Dr. Nichole Bourgeois, but it's the response from the school board president on the petition site itself that created some backlash.
quote:

The creation of the petition came following a report on KSLA News 12 Thursday that a former Parkway High School nurse has filed suit against Bourgeois, the school district and the school system's nursing supervisor. Lori Rayborn is suing for punitive damages for what she claims was harassment and retaliation after she expressed concerns about a student who she says was bullied and later committed suicide, and for pointing out that those concerns were ignored.

Directed at all of the members of the Bossier Parish School Board and superintendent DC Machen, the change.org petition calls Dr. Nichole Bourgeois "a disgrace to the South Bossier community and Bossier Parish in general." It goes on to point out that Bourgeois has "multiple lawsuits" naming her as a defendant.

The organizers of the petition to remove Dr. Bourgeois say they wish to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation, but they say the response so far shows there is support for their request. "In two days we have nearly 300 supporters, over 200 signatures on the petition so far," says one organizer. "We received several stories regarding why the individuals are signing the petition. Telling stories of Ms. Bourgeois bullying the parents, how one student's father committed suicide and on the third day after she returned to school, she was upset at school and was told by Dr. Bourgeois to suck it up and go back to class, things like that. The comments on the petition speak for themselves."

Presley himself responded directly to the online petition Saturday, saying, "Would like to notify change. Org [sic] and the morons in soju [sic] bossier [sic] that the president of the school board does not have the power to fire or hire anyone except for he [sic] superintendent let's start a petition to for bobby jindal [sic] and the founder of change. Org [sic] for using my name without my permission." Presley goes on to suggest in the resulting exchange that the petition and a related Facebook page "could be seen as cyber bullying." Presley appears to be directly responding to the petitioners and their supporters on that page, as well.
quote:

The petition points out that in addition to the suit brought by the former nurse, the family of the student who took her own life filed suit last year. In that suit, Jessica Morton claims Bourgeois and the school district did nothing to protect her daughter Danielle Cox from "constant bullying and harassment" at the hands of fellow student Jason Thomas and others. That suit is scheduled to go to trial in November of 2014.

Bourgeois, the school board and the Bossier City Police Department are also currently being sued by Live Oaks High School football coach Barry Musemeche, who was escorted off the Parkway High School football field in November of 2012 after refusing to remove his team from the field during pre-game warm ups. Bourgeois admitted after the game to removing Musemeche for not sticking to what she said was Parkway's pre-game itinerary.


This looks like it has the potential to get interesting in the upcoming months.

It's time for Bourgeois to step down. She's done more harm than good. Another black eye during her administration.

I knew Nicole very well growing up, and she was a passionate and intelligent young person.

I sorta followed the football coach story and don't feel that she did anything terribly wrong (it's my understanding that a coach basically said to eff off when she was trying to get her band on the field, and his belligerent demeanor got his arse cuffed). Certainly no reason for her to be fired.

And now the former school nurse, whose job it was to protect the students who enter her office didn't do her job of protecting one who came into her office. It sounds like it was her role to notify the parents for a psychological or physical problem, and allow the parents to act to protect their child. Now that she's gone, she brings a lawsuit against her former principal. I don't even know that principals even hire their staff, but if they do, I bet they can terminate them. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the nurse feels she was wrongly terminated.

In other words, Nicole has been witch hunt.

She will be in the courtroom quite often over the next couple years fighting acquisitions after acquisitions.

Which is why the LHSAA bitch slapped her arse to the extent they could.

It's good to see that she seems equally terrible at administering all areas of her school.

No, the LHSAA bitch slapped the football program and their senior players. You really think she gives two shits about athletics.

Well, like I said, when I knew her, if I could have hand-picked a principal for the school, it would have been her.

She should...if she doesn't, she's an equally shitty administrator. What exactly is your point?

And the LOHS coach did have a suit pending against her and a few other parties. Not sure of the status, but again great leadership putting herself and school in that position.

Have you speculated as to why she never married?
Maybe she's just the workaholic type that has no time for relationships..

I went to Parkway when she was just the assistant principal. All of this is very true she is definitely a bully. She is also certifiably insane.

I've always wondered if she was fricking the police officer that works there because he does everything she says. Even irrational things like arresting a football coach at a playoff game

Speculation would say just that (she is "a doctor" and apparently likes to be referred to as that)...she was a nice-looking, spirited student involved in just about every aspect of the school you could imagine. Like I said, I was not surprised at all when I discovered she was the principal.

I used to think she was a lesbian. But I think she is just obsessed with herself so much that nobody will share a life with her. She once told me that she was cracking down on high school kids holding hands at school because she said lesbians were holding hands on campus and "it made her stomach turn". Maybe she's the self loathing type of lesbian?

She wasn't a lesbian in high school...she was just a hard-working student who loved the school and being in school. Dude, I really thought she didn't want to graduate when she did.

Oh for frick sake

Not that it matters for anything, but she dated a regular smart, tall, athletic friend of mine for a long time who ended up at Texas A&M. She was from a good family, and I understand she lost her older sister way too early in life. She has always been a great student, and her staff, specifically her assistant principal who just posted on her Facebook how awesome she is, loves her.
