SCATS ~~ Don't you just love how the agenda says they will APPROVE the GUSS contract when it hasn't  been discussed in public before? Closed, clubby, corrupt!

Where are the minutes from the last few BOE meetings. The BoardDocs state they were approved but there are no attachments to read.

SCATS - there was a lot of space in your blog dedicated to Ms. Heather Sahrle a while back, but I haven't seen anything lately. Can you bring us anything new on this issue? Seems like it was pretty nasty, so I'm wondering how it could have gone away. Or was it just swept under the proverbial "rug"?

To 12:01PM ~~ The minutes for the reg. Dec. BOE meeting will be approved Tuesday night. Minutes for prior meetings are very tough to locate on here any more. And that's the way they seem to like it. No surprise there, right?

To 2:19PM ~~ Aside from another inquiry like yours, I've heard nothing in Greece. I have heard that the folks in Hamburg are already finding that Achramovitch is a costly "leader" to have in place. Their legal fees are skyrocketing and the lawsuits against their district are stacking up. He's a fast worker!

At the very least, the increased costs need to be identified along with the benefit to education, per the Board's agreement with the Commissioner of Education.

SCATS said...

To 6:56PM ~~ What are you referring to?

If what the govenor said last week in reference to state-aid for schools was heard by others this could be a very interesting year.

Not sure if Albany is 'serious' about spending reductions and or property tax containment but based on what the govenor said about public education theres alot of explaining to do aka 'results' attained for the money being spent.

It is quite interesting that Albany sees the problem that locals refuss to see or address.

And I'm quite certain if they are going to cut funding to school districts - they'll also eliminate unfunded mandates. Won't they?

Charlie Hubbard said...

Too often mandates have and still are used as an excuss for doing or saying nothing.
I have said many times - I have no idea what this board believes in. I stand by that statement.

For anyone watching or listening to this meeting please note if the Comptrollers audit is respected at the time of this contract approval.
See if the 'benefit to the district' is identified.
Since the audit of 2008 this has NOT been done.
