Yesterday, East Rochester's Interim Supt. Richard Stutzman rose to the occasion as he dealt with a serious school security situation that resulted in a lockdown due to a student bringing a BB gun to school.
Afterwards, he was remarkably candid and forthcoming as he and the police willingly faced media questions and parental concerns.
His approach exemplifies MUCH of what Greece Central's administration has been lacking over the years. He even ADMITTED TO MAKING A MISTAKE!
Below is a portion of what he told media after the incident:
Wednesday, May 20, 2015
By a vote of 1,878 to 1,587, Greece Central School District voters approved a $217,724,729 spending plan for the 2015-16 school year. The budget increases by 3.6% and carries a projected tax rate of $23.77 per $1,000 of assessed value.
By a vote of 1,818 in favor and 1,637 against, voters also approved a bus purchase proposition that authorizes the district to replace 25 buses and one 8-passenger vehicle at a cost not to exceed $2,538,565. Of that amount, $826,000 will come from the district’s previously established bus purchase reserve fund.

Will a new record low turnout be the headline?
SCATS suggests a "NO" vote on both propositions, bus purchase and budget.
SCATS suggests NOT casting any vote to endorse any BOE member.*
* It won't matter anyway, since just 3 people are vying for 3 seats. Let them win with few votes and maybe it will help to keep them humble ;)
