Greece Central School District ...


A World Renowned* DYSFUNCTIONAL School District!!

"The bus driver and students who were on the bus during the incident have been interviewed, according to school officials. Any disciplinary action would be taken in September because school is done for the year. None of the students were identified by the district because they are juveniles." MSNBC

NO DISCIPLINARY ACTION TO BE TAKEN UNTIL SEPT!? By then, these kids might all be enrolled elsewhere! What about criminal action?

WHERE IS THE SUPT?
WHERE IS TODD BAXTER?

Steve Walts wanted Greece to be "a world class school district."

John Auberger wanted us to be "America's Safest City."

We've become America's worst example around the world!

This notoriety has been a very long time coming!

When you ignore the issues ... play politics ... pit one faction against another ... reward those who ought to be fired or ousted from office ... you breed DYSFUNCTION!

There is a student that was originally named as a participant that is very likely not. Does not ride that bus and has denied every being on it. He has received threats of violence on his FB page as well as his families information publicly shared.

For the sake of this young boys life IF HE IS NOT ONE of the 4 please say so publicly use initials or first name only. This boy's ( if not even on the bus ever) emotional well being should not be sacrificed to protect the bullies!

Please do the right thing.

To 9AM ~~ As far as I'm aware, SCATS has NOT posted any of the student's names. If you find an entry on here, PLEASE let me know ASAP. I will remove it. There has been an OVERWHELMING volume of comments, emails, Facebook updates, etc. in the last 24 hrs. so it's possible something slipped by unintentionally. Thank you.

I'm OP 9:00 Oh no you have not posted it sorry that it implied that.

Sorry that was addressed to GSCD it my frustration I left out GCSD after do the right thing!

SCATS said...

To 9:14AM ~~ Thank you. As far as I'm aware, GCSD has NOT released any names. However, I did see at least FOUR named individuals posted on several websites yesterday. Even their parents' names, addresses, phone numbers, etc. were listed. Someone, not sure about who, had compiled LOTS of info on this event. Those sites even gave info on the school principal.

The constant insulting of this woman and the disregard for her feelings... seems like these are the traits of sociopaths. They just kept going even though they saw that she was crying. This lack of empathy for feelings of others is the beginning of a very successful career for this gang. It is not that they were unaware that she was emotionally upset. Some disorders cause children to be unable to read the feelings of others. It is that they did not care. If this group was a little older...which they will be soon....and they ganged up on a smaller classmate , the abuse could escalate. They seemed to delight in the pain they were inflicting on this woman. Anyone seen Clockwork Orange? The Sailor Who fell From grace with the sea? The Accused with Jodie foster? The last example was a true story. These little twerps were getting their jollies by inflicting pain on a person that could not respond because there are no procedures in place at Greece to respond. If she did respond she could be disciplined herself. These kids knew they could get away with it. It was the end of the school year and for some reason they knew they would not be disciplined if at all until the beginning of the next school year.
And Julia responds by saying this type of thing happens all over the USA and we have to make sure this stops everywhere else too. So that is quintessential dysfunction. She sees this as a teachable moment for the United States instead of just looking in her OWN backyard. Act locally Julia. And act fast. Any punishment delayed for these kids is not a punishment. Only revenge is a dish best served cold, not justifiable punishment. The response of the district and the community to this action should be immediate. And don't think for a minute that this is not happening all over Greece during the school year everywhere. This is just a glaring example of what most students have to put up with at the hands of some disturbed classmates.

We have an autistic son who was bullied to the point where we considered home schooling. He's now tutored.

As far as disciplinary action, the district is correct that nothing can be done because the year is over. I don't think they can legally compel a kid to come in over the summer and was blackboards or whatever. ON the other hand, there is nothing stopping the police from taking action, which they are and I'm sure it will be weeks before it's all sorted out.

SCATS said...

To 10:53AM ~~ Well, if any of these boys' parents are truly sorry, these kids should be MADE to do Community Service at Klein's home as part of their discipline. They can mow, paint, clean, etc. for the whole summer ;)

Re Chief Todd:

I have noticed well before this incident that recently we only see Auberger's boy Chatterton speaking for the police. Could it be he is not allowed to speak? Only comments vetted though Auberger's boy are allowed.

"dysfunction junction"......too funny!

SCATS said...

To 11:41AM ~~ I noticed that too. Unless it's to deal with "good news" Chief Todd has been absent.

To 11:46AM ~~ Glad you are amused. I tagged us with that name several years ago ... too bad it still applies!

Why is it that Greece cannot do anything during the summer? We do pay district staff to work ALL year (not teachers etc but the Big Wigs) so clearly making a decision about discipline should be in the works.

SCATS said...

To 1:39PM ~~ Lots of reasons ... we must put together a team of community members, employees, lawyers, etc. to hash it out. Then we have to pass it by a consultant, send it back to the committee, renegotiate it into several contracts via MOAs ... get the politicians on board with it ... write up a policy that has to go through another committee and be "read" three magical times at a BOE meeting. I'm pretty sure thay can do all of this by next Feb-MKarch if they burn the midnight oil ;)
