School Board Meeting/Budget Adoption

School Board meeting/budget adoption: Tuesday, April 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Administration Building, 5305 Abbott Rd. (It is anticipated that the board will adjourn into executive session at 6:30 p.m. and return to regular session at 7:30 p.m.)




IS ANYONE SURPRISED THAT THE MEETING IS IN THE VERY SMALLEST ROOM IN THE DISTRICT?  GUESS THEY WANT TO DISCOURAGE THE PULIC FROM ATTENDING.  IS THIS INTENTIONAL OR IS THIS AN OVERSIGHT?*


*It doesn't matter, get ready for more of the same.  Does it bother anyone else that Steve simply keeps proposing the same budget?  It is of the opinion of Concerned that the whole budget adoption process violates open meetings laws.  Not a single RSB discussion took place in public.  Who made the decisions who and where to cut?  Concerned's guess: Pom Pom Patty, Dr. Doolittle Calkins and Achramo made all the decisions behind closed doors.

I overheard Steve say that the reason they are restoring a music teacher is because of the community pressure.

Teachers have no right to complain about their jobs getting cut when they do not even go to board meetings to stand up for themselves. Why do you think EMT was saved?

Teachers don't speak up because traditionally, those who speak up get reprimanded in some way or another. It is not the job of teachers to save other teachers' jobs. The job of teachers is to educate students - not get involved in all the bureaucratic bs.

A teacher is obligated to speak up if there is wrong. Any teacher who is quiet is a coward, and lucifer has a special place in eternity for those who stand by only to save themselves.

Jesibell - that is almost a hilarious statement. Where were you when veteran teachers were being harassed and targeted - moved to other placements because THEY DID SPEAK UP to save others? Did you? Before you try to get the stick out of someone else's eye - get the log out of your own!

The only one that should be removed from a placement is the superintendent. He has no leadership, and has ruined the morale of our staff. We know there is no money, but there is a way to handle staff in these difficult times. What will Steve do when Gregg Davis goes? Steve doesn't know any of the staff. He seems not to care about anyone but himself. I say off to the rubber room with Steve.

Now he wants to cut the social studies senior requirement in economics and displace it with finance. Guess what steve, Economics is a social science, it is not finance. Perhaps you may want to take an economics course yourself. Finance academy is only a year old, can it.

Joan said several times they should have economics and participation in government in the auditorium as lecture courses like in college. Why does Steve and Joan pick on PIG and ECONOMICS? It's pretty clear they have a vendetta. Why don't they pick on English, math or science???? Or MUSIC???? Joan, music is a nice to have nut a must. Meanwhile the health of our children don't matter cause they cutting health. Out Board Prez is a DOCTOR, and she is cutting health.

Anonymous...science really??? 5.5 teachers in the science dept in 3 years. Our board president is a Dr. and she couldn't have got there without science classes. I think favoritism lies somewhere else.

We didn't realize she went after science? She is definitely a quack. Doesn't she realize what makes a nation competitive???? Science and Math. Maybe she needs an economics course on Economic growth. Joan the quack.

Public discussion on the cuts from the budget (programs and teachers). All done by ACHRMOVITCH, CALKINS AND BRUNNER/COLLINS behind closed doors. this is your trifecta of the entire school board. Where are the other 5 members of the board? Oh yes school board members, don't vote on anything unless you read it yourself. You are ultimately responsible for the budget, cuts to our kids education. Science, life skill, art, social studies. You will be held responsible. If you let Steve Achramovitch, Joan Calkins, and Patty Collins spoon feed you than you don't deserve to serve this school district. Stop the GROUP THINK, and use your brain.

Remember we lost $1.8 million because, than school board Pres Osborne and Supt. Roswell spoon fed the other school board. And just look at that scam of an ENERGY EDUCATION contract to save the district $$$. Not one member read that contract and it is costing us almost $400,000. to turn off power when not in use. No capital improvements to any of our school buildings.

WHY 5 SCIENCE TEACHERS IN 2 YEARS??? AND WE ARE REMODELING SCIENCE CLASSROOMS AT A HUGE COST TO THE TAXPAYERS! ALL OF THESE TEACHERS EACH HAVE OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND ALL ARE AT THE HIGH SCHOOL.

The latest science teacher to be cut is the AP Biology teacher! I thought my child just had to make it through chemistry this year with a teacher who was forced to teach it because of the chemistry teachers who were cut last year. This has been a terrible year and now the thought of a second year without a knowledgable teacher running the course means my child cannot take the desired course. This is not fair to the kids. So instead of eliminating programs, this district is making them so bad, nobody will sign up for them. I guess that's one way for this district to pretend fewer teachers are needed.
