After the debacle regarding Frederick County Public Schools students and the massive rain and flooding, Dr. Terry Alban should resign immediately as superintendent.

Like all politicians, she is unable to accept responsibility for her mistakes and hides behind the concept of plausible deniability. She still stands behind her decision.

Find a job where you are not responsible for making decisions regarding the safety and well-being of those you are responsible for.

What transpired regarding FCPS students and the buses is unconscionable.

And, this is not the first time her decisions have been detrimental to FCPS students and teachers.

When I started to train as a school bus driver, we were told never to drive our bus thru flooded roads. It is not Albans fault, but the bus driver's.


It’s not Dr. Alban’s fault, it’s not the teachers fault, it’s nobody’s fault. We have a daughter that is an 8th grade English teacher, a daughter-in-law who is an Elementary School Principal, a Freshman and Senior in High School, and a Middle Schooler. They all hated virtual learning and now are happy to be in School again but it still isn’t what is was. Maybe next year IF people will get vaccinated and wear masks.


“After the debacle regarding Frederick County Public Schools students and the massive rain and flooding…” Why didn’t she just turn the rain off, everyone wants to know, enough is enough




I truly wish individuals would do a little research before breaking out the pitchforks and torches. FCPS has a Director of Transportation. During an event such as the deluge of rain, individuals check roads and safety conditions. These individuals report to the Director of Transportation., and then the Director reports to the Superintendent. Based on these reports, a decision is made. At least this was the procedure at the time when I was teaching. Question: Do you have a better model for deciding whether to close or not? This isn’t the first time where a decision has been made to remain open, and then during the course of the morning the conditions made a turn for the worst. This has happened under other superintendents. So…. If you have a better method to decide openings and closings, it would be very productive
