Attewell Leaves Greendale School District

The longtime Greendale resident, who coordinated the district's technology and communications, said he will remain active in the community.

Bill Attewell has left his position as technology and communications coordinator for the Greendale School District.

Attewell said he is "pursuing new opportunities" but will remain heavily involved in the community.

"I believe that the future of our community and schools is strong," he said. "Please know that I will remain active in our village and community."

Attewell is a longtime Greendale resident. He has also run the Everything Greendale blog, which he said in a post today will be relaunching soon.

Sorry, but Mondays are hectic for me. I will do my absolute best to be at the next school board meeting. And by the way, there are about 300 people name "Gene" in Greendale, but only one J. Patzfahl (probably in the entire world). Don't get me wrong, sometimes I wish I could hide in anonymity, but then I would think myself a total hypocrite. gotta get to work...that's enough of this for today -

Dammed if I do, Dammed if I don’t. Not aware 300 Gene's here. They all have a nice name; we should start the "Gene" club. Oh wait that would be a clique. Sorry. You seem to be quite informed and I can respect that, I have nothing personal against you or your views, just letting mine be heard here on the patch like so many others and be assured my experiences will be made known to the proper authorities that enforce educational policies at the state and federal governmental level. Will take a while but it will happen. As contacting the district directly and politely, from my experience was not effective. May not have been that way with others which is fine. Getting respect and giving respect is a two way street.

Don't just beat up John Tharp for weak performance. Hold the directors of the school board up for election responsible for the vote approving a 3 year contract without good reason except they could not admit they might have an issue on their hands. I know that many of us tried to convince them and it got to them so bad they stopped answering email or calling us back. Vote them out and get new people who will listen, answer and own their actions. Vote Weid!!!!

Seems as though Bill Attewell leaving the district might have been a messy affair: His "everything greendale" blog is nothing but bashing the Greendale school district. He does not report on anything positive from within the district, like constant student feedback to the board, improved lunches, improved test scores, more student diversity, our ability to meet our students' diverse needs, the great concerts and productions, our great music program, various student-achievements, etc. and etc... He is Mr. negativity. Sometimes you have to remove the unhappy, rotten apple from the bunch so that the rest of the bushel is not infected.
