E. Rochester Interim Has What Greece Needs


Image result for richard stutzman


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:


From WHEC-TV:
District officials say once the school was placed on lockdown, parents received a robo-call informing them of the situation and a second when the lockdown was lifted. But some parents didn't get that call or answers when they came to pick up their children.
Parent Meghan Forrest says, "We get that a lot they don't seem to tell us a lot."
We took her concern to the superintendent.
Mobilia: "I understand a robo-call went out but how come parents standing outside here waiting to get their children were not informed as to what was going on?"
Stutzman: "That's something we're going to have to debrief on, but we were inside trying to secure a situation.
Mobilia: "But you don't think parents out here had the right to know what was going on?"
Stutzman: "They do and that's a mistake that I'll admit to."

SCATS ~~ CAN WE HIRE THIS MAN TO BE OUR NEXT SUPT??

Who Is Babs' Replacement?


The choice has been made!

Narrow Margins In Approved Props



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.

BABS DUMPS GREECE FOR BOSTON!


Well, well, well!  So much Babs and her "retirement"! It appears that many of the rumors about her are true!

Boston Public Schools name Babs "Senior Deputy Superintendent of Operations"  effective July 1, 2015.



Read her lofty Bio



WHY DID BABS DUMP GREECE CENTRAL??


Will Apathy "Win" During Tuesday Elections?


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 ;)
