What happens when there is a Board of Education vacancy?

#1. The school district should have enough respect for their community and the taxpayers to advise them of the resignation of a member of the school board.
Point to Remember: elected officials serve at the leisure of the electorate.  The district should send out a press release notifying the media of the member's departure, and should make the school community aware of the shortage by placing the information openly on district webpage.

#2. The Board of Education ought to immediately remove the superintendent from any discussion related to their options to replace the member.
Point to Remember: The superintendent works for the community through the elected body called the Board of Education.

#3 The Board of Education can:
Option (a) call for a special election within 90 days after the vacancy- the most democratic model to follow. 
or, 
Option (b) appoint a person to the board- the least democratic model. 
or,
Option (c) If the seat remains open for more than 90 days, then the district superintendent (ERIE I BOCES) can fill by appointment. This would be Donald Ogilvie, unless Buffalo snatches him up before in the next 89 days.- autocratic model.

#4. The person elected or appointed to the the vacancy takes office immediately upon filing the oath of office (to uphold the US Constitution and the NYS Constitution...perhaps Dr. Harper realised that wasn't possible on the Hamburg Board of Education?) 

So readers what will it be: option a, b, or c?

If you choose option b, who would be your choice for appointment? Remember, experience counts.

I would like to see Eileen Rucker (there for her daughters jobs security), Ed Osbourne(line his pockets with cash), and Pete Roswell (there to do nothing) make an appearance on the BOE.

They escaped before the public got to confront them on the fraud, the 1.8 million missing....

Perhaps, Mr Clifford Huen former history teacher and HTA president. Who, worked 1/2 day and collect a full time pay check to be a rubber band man for the teachers union. The teachers dont realize their president was working for the administration...not them.


Where is Mr Gary Vara?

Or, maybe we can spin to the Margaret Moses days. She was a turd in the punchbowl. Spencer Gifts sells blow ups..they can park one in a chair...

Another young graduate of Hamburg dies from drug over dose. What will it take for this little community to admit and deal for the sake of our kids with this drug problem. My kid was a friend of his.

friend of John said...

I to was a friend of John S. You are right the guidance, principal, and teachers knew of his problem but ignored it. His problem ruined his short life. My younger sister is at the hs now says still the same. Get these kids help Gallagher and guidance stop ignoring our community drug problem. Where is the Village Police ,why are they not involved?

friends of John S. said...

The school board knows of the drug problems in the hs, but will not act. A DRUG FREE ZONE is a lie.
Same story just a different year.

I would expect them to do the democratic thing, call for an election.

Hey brothers and sisters of the HTA, your new leadership is having a secret meeting at the Armor Elementary today at 3;30 ( monday) The sneaks were slithering in when I was leaving school today. Watch out, they are handing over the union to the administration. Did anyone question the votes, I know I voted for Kathy and Martha, and so did others in my building, but the votes came back that one one person voted for them. I have been in this building for years and these ladies are NUTS. Wait until the pay freeze comes our way....its a matter of time. Dont trust Sandy or Peg, they are not out for your best interest. It was a cry session here when Dr. Harper resigned. Warning!

The two young men did not appear in the Village of Hamburg Court.

Frontier deals with their drug problems effectively while Hamburg hides theirs.

Concerned:
Keep Gregs picture up on our blog. He is jocking for a position to be put back on our school board. Watch his temper.

Whoa.

Shouldn't you report illegal activity to the police? Why isn't the principal doing this? I would image if the word got out with these kids that law enforcement officals will be brought in to deal with this issue they would think twice before doing or dealing drugs at school.

Teach my kid he has too many study halls. Our kids deserve more.

Dr. Joan Calkins, you run the district not Steve Achramovitich. He doesn't reside here, you need to remind him that our kids need class time not study halls.

just wondering said...

Do we have a drug policy for the schools? If so than what is it? Is it just for show? Has it ever been enforced if one exists? Just curious, a lot of kids and parents doing drugs and they want us to be responsible for them, the liability is on the law ibiding citizen not the abuser.

parents said...

I understand that these Hamburg Senior Boys discharged the firearms on Newton Rd. These firearms were a law enforcement officers weapons, and you don't think we have a drug problem.
STOP LOOK and LISTEN, STOP denying and start dealing with our drug issues at the High School.

Found this interesting,
took my boys to the skate part and found this tacky add for Cha Cha and Flemming Law Firm. Kid gets hurt call the Hamburg Village Justice law firm to sue the Town of Hamburg. Get Hurt Call Cha Cha and Flemming.

mom of 2008 kid said...

7:11 am...call the police? you are kidding, right. There is a guidance advisor that runs the character club (piff), and she tips the druggies off when the administration is on to them. She doesnt want them to get caught doing drugs, so tells them how to get around it. She runs the Character Club, that my kid was in a few years ago. I found out about this counselor and pulled my kid from the club and her roster. She is out of her mind, and has been known to go HHS under the influence. Why doesnt someone do drugs and alcohol testing to the staff...maybe all the roads would lead to the guidance councilors..not all of them, but there are three in the high school with questionable motives..one man and two women. Check it out for yourself. Its not hard to miss.

Greg W. wants back. He has made some terrible gestures as well as remarks about quite a few teachers. Please make sure you say hello to his enormous ego or he'll come after you. This is what I'm talking about.

Someone needs to get Matthew Dils off of the board. He is an arrogant idiot (dangerous combination). The look on his ugly mug is enough to make one scream.
