"The Worst Town In The Nation ... "


Greece New York

"What would you think of a town in which every decision of the town board had been unanimous for at least a dozen years, and in which town board members are allowed no public dissent at meetings, and none is ever expressed? A town in which it was virtually impossible to get a meeting with the town supervisor? One where citizens who express any dissent were met with either silence or disdain? You would probably think you were living in the pre perestroikan Soviet Union, or Mao’s China but you would be wrong. You would be living in Greece New York, the worst run town in the nation."

Special BOE Meeting, Tues.


Executive Session - It is anticipated that the BOE will go into Exec. Session  @4:45 pm to discuss matters made exempt under federal law, the Family Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), & the employment history of particular person(s).

NOTE ~~ No time is given for the expected start of the Open BOE Meeting, another violation of the Open Meetings Laws.

Agenda Topics of Note
Non-Unit Rates (Retired cops)
Summer School Program Report
Enrollment Projections - Are they priming us so they can ask us to BUILD another school??

Why does the Office of School Safety & Security really want us to pay $20/hour - an "events rate" - so Steve Chatteron's retired cop/buddies can work for GCSD? What's in it for taxpayers?

Why do we pay disc jockeys $10-35/hour, but a "security worker sub" gets just $9/hour?

BOE Meeting Tonight, 6:30PM


Public Hearing Re: Discovery Charter School at 6:30 pm, followed by the Regular Meeting of the Board of Education. 


Anticipated Executive Session at 5:30 pm.



Will the District Clerk convince BOE to boot GCSD budget vote & BOE elections to off-district sites? 

At what cost to the voting public's convenience?

  • Barrows claims 800 voters can't be accommodated at Paddy Hill School (What did we do when MORE people voted? In 1991 election, well over 10,000 voters cast ballots @14 locations!!)
  • Access to parking, handicap spaces, restrooms sited as problems (How do they handle this for Open Houses??)
  • Claims too many sites causes "slow reporting" of results! (This was NEVER an issue until Barrows took over! OMG, the results of the stadium defeat STILL haven't been reported by GCSD!)
  • BOE Prez. worries about public entering schools they paid for! (I thought our head of security had a sure-fire system to keep pedophiles away!)
  • District blames voters for hurting student instruction on vote day! (Sooner or later you just had to know they'd blame those low test scores/graduation rates on the folks who foot the bill!)

SCATS ~~ I want EVERY REGISTERED VOTER IN GCSD's boundary to vote this coming May! DON'T LET THEM BOOT US OUT OF THE SCHOOLS WE BUILT & MAINTAIN!
  

GCSD's Bullying Task Force Is "BS"

Bullying and misconduct is alive and well in the Greece Central School District. Gang activity has increased and the code of conduct is a joke. Students are being taunted by bullies and when they have taken more than they can tolerate and fight back they are arrested. Although, the school district states that they have a bullying task force, that is bull****. They do not want to be on the list of worst schools in America, so they overlook the bad behavior leaving your child to protect themselves. Parents should direct their complaints of bullying to the NYS Department of Education this should light a fire under their butts and protect the students who want to learn.     10/13/2015 3:41 AM

Greece Town Website Is "Vapid"



Anonymous Anonymous said...
Has everyone had a chance to enjoy the new Town of Greece website? It's pretty...pretty vapid. Good luck trying to find any actual information there. Where are the agendas? Budgets? Minutes? It's nothing but pure contempt for the concept of open transparent government. But, what did we expect out of this bunch? Would you put up with that crap from the school district? How about if they just stop posting agendas and minutes and pull the budgets off the site?    10/09/2015 12:22 AM
