Two School Board Meetings in one week?

Last Tuesday June 21, 2011 the Hamburg Board of Education had an improperly convened "work session".  It was posted the audit committee would meet, which is the entire Board of Education.  The meeting lasted approximately 45 minutes.  Allegedly the discussion revolved around the violations discovered in the recent internal audit of the district's policies and procedures.  The question remains, why did the Board of Education have a special, emergency, meeting to discuss an audit? Unless, the audit revealed a serious violation by the district that could not wait until the next "scheduled" July12, 2011 meeting?  And now, one week later a school board meeting is posted with less than 72 hours notice to the public?  This is not a regularly scheduled meeting, those were voted on and posted last summer.  It is the opinion of the writer of this posting that the district continues to violate the New York State Open Meeting Laws.

No surprise an illegal meeting. We were told by the school board pres. Dr. Joan Calkins that the new supt. is an expert on open meetings laws. I guess he is slipping.

Riddle me this. How in the hell is this school board getting away with this. They get in trouble with the law for holding illegal meetings, then the next thing they do is hold not one but two of them. One meeting to give administration and staff raises, while cutting programs, teachers, asking taxpayers to pay more while our schools are falling in to disrepair, REALLY WHERE DO YOU GET OFF. The other meeting about rewriting policies about meetings here is some free advice the school district can make any type of policy it wants to BUT it CANNOT over step the LAW. so just because the school board makes a policy saying it can hold secret meeting DOESN’T MAKE IT LEGAL. It’s obvious to me that Mr. Achramovitch and Dr Calkins along with the rest of the school board are in affect giving the finger to State Supreme Court Justice Devlin. who I can only imagine is not going to take to this too kindly. I only hope that after the District is handed another judgment against them the community wakes up and calls for the resignation of the superintendent, Dr Calkins , Patricia Brunner Collins, Kelly Harper, Diane Reynolds and Matthew Dils all of whom should be held responsible for not only letting this happen the first time but allowing it to happen again .

Super,

Amen, you said it perfectly.

Thank you

bye bye Wichlacz & Neyman said...

Concerned at micnight you can remove Neyman & Wichlacz, and replace them with our two new candidates. Hopefully they will obey the laws and put Joan and Steve in their place.
