"The Williamsville school board has begun the process finding a successor by selecting Erie I BOCES Superintendent to head the search for a new superintendent, which will be advertised with an annual pay of $200,000." Is Ogilvie a moonlighter? He might not only be Oz of Hamburg but Oz of all Erie County. Before Williamsville continues with Mr. Ogilvie the Board members should check out the candidate we were given. It may be worth watching the hiring process in Williamsville and Clarence (Clarence is also hiring) to see if there is a secret hiring panel composed of 40+ members. I wonder if the panel will fill out surveys and Mr. Ogilvie will be the only one privy to the results? I wonder if the school board will take Ogilvie's word carte blanch and not research the candidate he recommends? I wonder if they will hire someone run out of their two previous districts?
If Achramo has all the experience we think he has, why would he go from making 210K in Greece, one of the largest district's in NYS, to 170K in Hamburg, a much smaller district? He also gave up his lifetime health insurance. Something smells fishy about Achramo's desire to come to Hamburg. Maybe our board should encourage Achramo to apply to Williamsville. Hamburg has gone years without legal problems and Achramo gets hired and immediately blows through our annual budget. Why doesn't he go turn his tricks in Williamsville? Superintendents are shuffled around all the time and I think Hamburg's superintendent is in need of rotation.
