Deb Leh Named Wheatland-Chili Supt

  
The Wheatland Chili Board of Education announced Wednesday that a new superintendent of schools has been chosen. Deborah Leh, assistant superintendent of student learning at Clarkstown Central School District in Rockland County and a former director of curriculum and instruction at Greece Central School District, will start effective July 1.

SCATS ~~ From Greece to Meg country and back to this area. Almost like a tour around NY State!

But will she bring her "Meg influences" back to Greece with her??

How can the Churchville Chili superintendent bring back any influences to Greece at all? I'll bet that she went downstate to puff up her salary for three years or so. I would also bet that she took a pay cut to get this gig.

Good luck to them all.

Sorry, I mis-spoke. I meant to say, "Will she run C-C the way Meg 'trained' her in Greece & in Rockland?" (I know, I know, we shouldn't care, right? I was just wondering, that's all.)

"I commend the administrators and faculty of the West Genesee School District who have taken a voluntary salary freeze. These are the type of tough but smart decisions school districts across New York should be making. West Genesee clearly understands the economic pressures we are facing and other school districts should follow this example."

Salary freezes are not sustainable. Teachers' living expenses rise like everyone else. What is needed is a recognition that some benefits cannot continue to be borne by the taxpayers, like health insurance. Just as we Kodak workers faced in the 90's, teachers need to accept the fact that they need to pick up more of the cost of these benefits and be given a choice of plans. As the rates rise, the only one who can control the rises is the individual teacher, opting for the specific plan that meets their needs at a cost that is reasonable for them. By having a vested interest in the cost, they will make the cost-effective choice.

So 1:15...what you're saying is that because Kodak screwed its employees, GCSD should do the same.

To 9:47PM ~~ It's not like Kodak was the only company that faced these kinds of tough decisions. It just happens to be the one that hit hardest and closest to home.

Nobody said pay freezes were sustainable. They are necessary for now, however.

Benefits? Let's talk numbers. How much does it cost the district for 1-month of "family medical benefits"? I think the information would startle us if we really knew.
