WELCOME TO SRC
I just want to welcome everyone visiting or joining to the Scripps Ranch Community.com
I myself have been a resident of Scripps Ranch since birth in 1973. I moved out for a while shortly after High School, and after I started a family of my own I decided it was best to raise my children/family back to Scripps Ranch because it's so family orientated. It was quite funny to also see so many childhood and school friends also make their way back to the ranch.
I'm no stranger to message boards & news sites such as what I'm launching here....and this is not the finished final product as work is still in progress.
The reason why I'm launching SRC is because I've seen a need for it while some of my older boys have gone through school, a lot has changed with schools since I attended school back here soooooo long ago. So long ago I was the first Kindergarten Class of Jerabek.
I want to create awareness and have an open line of communication between parents and schools, as well as residents and business with their community, and also crack open the inner working of the politics that happen with our community.
There are a couple of things I need to get out in the open. There is a couple of tiers when it comes to membership, first and foremost this site is free to all. Their are guests who have limited view because they have not signed up, there are Resident membershipss... and they are just that. Residents are able to view everything. Businesses who want to choose to advertise here if they so choose and help support this site as it's very time consuming can sign up a Vendor.
As I said, I'm no stranger to Message Board Sites and I currently actively run one other. One thing I suggest to you is that message boards are tough, and you have to have thick skin on occasion to actively participate in one. I won't let anything personal stand, and when it gets to that point, posts will be edited and deleted, offender who continuously act in this manner will be banned. I let conversations and topics roll on, no matter how brutal they can get with "opinion and fact", but when they turn personal that's when moderation happens on my end.
My suggestion is don't take anything personal, it's hard to interrupt what you read and how a message or from comments and how they might really intend on being relayed, or meant online. If you're someone who is easily offended, then I would suggest stick to reading only, or not at all.
There are two objectives i have for this site.
#1 To start a ratings system that goes hand in hand of reviews of teachers, staff and schools by parents. Please use polls of these subjects at the end of the school year as you can't change your answers once their set. Feed back in making a reply or comment to those subjects is always more welcome.
#2 is opening up and discussing the community politics of what happens in or out that affects the Scripps Ranch Community
***I'll be updating this topic as I go along. Any suggestions are always welcome as i go along in developing this useful tool for our community.
