ED, Dr. Kelvin Gilchrist fired [D209]

According to a reliable source Dr. Kelvin Gilchrist has been put on "administrative leave" by District 209--presumbably this is a preliminary step to the board firing him. Gilchrist was the deputy superintendent responsible for being Emanuel Christopher Welch's public whipping boy on the issue of low test scores.

Any information or speculation on why Welch would want Gilchrist fired now?

  • ok, i'm Ms.Coffee In my opinion, Gilchrist has done more to ruin Proviso than any other person. He got rid of tracking, so you have 4th grade readers in with 9th grade readers. He got rid of special ed and threw all those kids in regular classes so they could fail. He instituted the grading policy that makes it possible to pass without coming to class for a whole semester. He also had some problems with the ladies and was the subject of at least 2 sexual harassment claims

    What’s the pattern here?

    Does Welch allow any Black men—Black men who aren’t toadies--to keep their jobs?

  • Ms. Coffee, why is Gilchrist being shown the door at this time?

    Is Gilchrist less competent at his job than Bob Libka is at his job?

    Did the board of ed sign off on the policies to which you object? Are you in favor of dumping Welch and his three rubber stamps?

  • Ms. Coffee says: Yes the Board of ed. signed off onGilchrist's plans. He is a master salesman. The Board, much like a CEO takes advice from their underlings. The only person on the board who ever had teaching experience was Imoni Baxter. She objected to some of Gilchrist's ideas, but she was not always with the majority. As to why they're firing Gilchrist now, it's a mystery. He is going to retire at the end of this year. Perhaps he's already 55 and they're going to get him out a few months early. Who's Gilchrist's clout? Gene Moore?

    I will never allow myself to battered by Welch and Moore again said...
    Why does Welch and Moore hate women so much?
    Why do Welch and Moore always attack women?
    Why do Welch and Moore try to destroy Black Women?
    Look at there records,
    1.Welch and Moore perpetual hate and perpetual war with Karen Yarbrough?
    2.Welch and Moore's hate for I. Nicole Trottie!
    3.Welch and Moore's hate for Theresa Kelly!
    4. Welch and Moore's hate for Wanda Sharpe!
    5.Welch and Moore's hate for Lightford!
    6Welch and Moore hate Mary Mitchell's guts!
    7. Welch and Moore even hate white and latina women,look how they double crossed Mary Herrel and Tina Alcaraz!
    This pattern of abuse, of hatred for Women, especially strong,Intelligent women is rooted in there beliefs that women are to serve them or should be subserviant!
    Noticed how Both Moore and Welch attended the Pimp ball last year in Maywood and this year refused to protest there presence in Maywood!
    Noticed how Welch treats the women 209 board members? Even his own allies Matlock and Henry barely get noticed by Welch and have there ideas disregarded by Welch!
    Noticed How Welch has refused to name a women President or vice-president of the Board at 209!
    Coincidence? I don't think so,Those two individuals are angry and bitter men, who hate women, who would not tolerate a women telling them what to do, and who are probably extremely dangerous when alone with women,especially women who are in relationships with them!
    As March 2006 will be the honorary month for Women's Independence, right to vote and the Month for Battered Women's awareness month, please remember to go vote against these Women haters, who are named Chris Welch and Eugene Moore!

  • Forest Park Review (Seth Stern) covers Gilchrist being put on administrative leave.

    Proviso High School District 209 Deputy Superintendent Kelvin Gilchrist has been placed on administrative leave and ordered to remain at his residence within reach of his home telephone during working hours until further notice.

    [Gilchrist] will be allowed to enter Proviso property to retrieve his belongings only in increments of one hour, and only while directly monitored by Libka.


    What a place!

  • Mister Potato Head Strikes Again...

    This is Locked in the Closet #2.
    ATTENTION! ATTENTION! ATTENTION!Welch has locked Mister Potato Head in the closet and has forced him to do such an horrendous act against District 209 children.

    Mister Potato Head: "Welch, why must I do this, I am a man of God"

    Welch: "Libka, you damn rock head just shut up DUMMY, I pay you well to be the White devil and to do my dirty work against the Black men in 209."

    Mister Potato Head: "But why do you lock me in the closet? I can't breathe and I am scared. I need my night light."

    Welch: "Because I am safe in the closet I will remain in the closet until my boyfriend is ready to let me out. You are safe in closet beacuse I am here. I will come out one day, but unitl then do what I say"

    Mister Potato Head: " Well who are we going to go after next, Millon, Bryant, Robertson,?"

    Welch: "Maybe, but no one, absolutely no one messes with the Wicked Witch of the West and her bearded female, testerone gang"

    Mister Potato: "Okay Boss man, what ever you say. Are you worried? Do you have a conscious? Do you think this will mess up your chance for State Rep.

    Welch" " I don't care about State Rep! I am just an evil nasty man that needs to find some real manly things to do. I get bored knitting and painting my nails."

    Libka: "But Welch you know the community will know I am not responsible for what is going on, because I am so DUMB and RETARDED! They have to know that I take all my orders from you"

    Welch: "Just shut up idiot and get your head out of the toilet. We have evil and demeaning work to do. Now get Lucifer on the phone! Me and him have a 12 noon lunch date!"

  • Ms. Coffee you really know about what is going on in Proviso. Do you work in the school and are you apart of the Everybody-Loves=Chris group, but really are scared to speak out against him because you will lose your job? Ms. Coffee are you really WALLACE disguised as a woman?

  • Anonymous 10:39 you are stupid. You sound like the defeated candidate for State Rep.: Welch.

    By Blogger Crome_Dome, at 8:49 AM, January 06, 2006  

  • Welch has to appear that he is proactive in educational matters. Proviso's dismal test scores and being on the academic watch list ever since Welch has been in the majority, mnakes it extremely embarrassing as well as ridiculous to have him run for State Rep. as the education canidate!
    Everyone knows that Welch has ruined the little professionalism at Proviso with his politics and hirings of all his relatives and friends.
    Welch is postioning himself to say he did not know what was going on at 209 and decided to make changes to change the outcome and future results of test scores at the failed 209 school district!
    What is amazing is that Welch would destroy somebody's career and life's work for poltical gain!
    Welch will be destroyed somewhere ,somehow, because living like he does and hurting others, especially hurting simeone's livelyhood is wrong and dangerous!
    I am sure that the feds will look at this along with his previous works and doings , and will indicted him not only for Conspiracy with Moore and the rest of his 209 majority, they will also prosecute him for wire fraud,mail fraud,obstruction of justice,racketeering and coercion with Libka and the 209 allies! that sentance will bne at least 10 - 15 years!

  • from ms. coffee to crome dom...I am not wallace,but i do know a lot about proviso. ia am not anti welch or libka. give libka a chance. he is a really nice guy caught in a web of politics. gilchrist had his chance to improve the schools,but he didn't. He implemented one plan after another and never made any progress. As far as I'm concerned, Welch made some good decisions on Jackson and Gilchrist.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:45 PM, January 07, 2006  

  • Proviso doesn't need "a nice guy" that is an idiot and not certified. They need someone that knows what the hell they are doing. And Libka has no idea how to run a school district. Would you let someone operate on you that does not have a medical license? Would you let someone teach your child that can't pass the teaching test? Absolutely NOT!
    Okay then, Libka is not certified to be over the children in Proviso.
    He needs to get the hell out of dodge immediately. And I hold Welch accountable for having this moron over Proviso children

  • ms. coffee says: Let's see, lets go back over some superintendents at proviso. Jack stanley,greg jackson were business managers...hmmm.wonder why that's important. what about that idiot before jackson. He had all the certification and didn't know anything. is your memory so short you don't remember when becky montoya had to cover for Crawford who was not qualified. besides, you can have all the degrees in the world and still not be too smart. who were these idiots who wrote the nclb law? I'm sure they all had fancy degrees, but lacked brains.Libka has ms Murphy if you're worried about certification. I'm sure she'll do a better job than Gilchrist with his shop degree.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:36 AM, January 08, 2006  

  • anonymous 8:36 I agree about ms Murphy but why not her for superintendent since she has the designation? why was Libca chosen if Murphy was available?

    I don't know Libca, but rmember some of those other superintendents who were there. Crawford's credential came under fire and he was terminated or released.

    Gilchrist was a self--absorbed arrogant ass.

  • Ms. Coffee you sound like some one from Proviso. Are you an insider. How do you know so much about Gilchrist? Did you learn about him on 5th Avenue on Tuesday nights. You know alot about Proviso. I guess your wishes have been granted...Fairy Godmother.

    You are absolutely right about the fancy degress. Welch has "fancy degress" and turned Proviso into a pile of shit!
    Thanks Ms. Coffee for the his-story lesson, but are you still okay with a DUMB white man running Proviso?

    By Blogger Crome_Dome, at 7:52 PM, January 08, 2006  

  • Ms.Coffee, Ms.Coffee you ARE an employee at 209, an angry employee I might add, and you are a long time employee. You dated yourself by giving names, and you speak of these people from a very personal point. You've made your point clear, you hate Gregory Jackson and Kelvin Gilchrist. Fine. So tell me does Welch and Moore sleep together??? It sounds like Welch is hungry for power, and since he cannot be a decent lawyer, then he is willing to get into politics any which way he can, and the easiest way for him to do that is by sleeping with sleazy and powerful(Maywood only)politician. And you must be one of those poor people with no life that has decided to join Welch's sleazy group. I am not a welch hater, I only feel pitty for him, because he was not able to make it in the real world he decided to comeback to his hometown and try to make himself a "Hero" since he could not make it as a regular person into the real world. He figured it would be a lot easier to manipulate a bunch of ignorant people that would never know that they are being manupulated by a dirty sleazy person anyway, so what da heck!!! And you are one of those fool!!!! By the way, are you sleeping with Wallace or any of her hommies????????

  • I have decided to remove my child from district 209 and obtain a loan to pay for private school. I would never send my children to Proviso until they can do better and show me better. Even board members don't send their children to Proviso, Grady Rivers and Shirley Madlock did not send their kids to Proviso. How come? How are they governing our schools and the schools are not good enough for their children. I am confused by their actions. Rivers promoted the magnet school, but did not send his daughter there, he congratualated Welch "the slimball" on what a good job he has done to have the magnet school, but it is not good enough for his child. The test scores will never get better, the schools will never get better, because the board members do not have the best interest in the children. The schools are not good enough for their kids, WELL I AM PULLING MINE OUT BECAUSE IT IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR MINE! If you are a board member or a politian in Proviso they should promote the schools. But they are not! The Maywood schools and Proviso High Schools is a cess pool of corruption and contracts.

    Expose these frauds for the hypocrites they are Carl.
