*Mr. Teacher is a teacher in Hamburg Schools and is an active father, coach and citizen in the Springville School District.
It appears that Dr. Connelly was reaching out to his buddy in Hamburg to see if something could be done to this politically active citizen. If it wasn't this way the email would be released with little discussion.
Yes, you are understanding this correctly.
A superintendent, an allegedly prominent member of the community, writes an email to a teacher's boss, a superintendent in an adjacent district in an attempt to get that teacher silenced.
And when Connelly and Achramovitch get caught with their (proverbial) trousers down, they call in the lawyers to clean up their soiled shorts.
Concerned Hamburger was notified that this email was widely distributed, and one teacher in Hamburg advised the Hamburg Board of Education of its existence at the June 12th Hamburg Board of Education meeting.
Certain individuals have requested via Freedom of Information Law that the communications between Connelly and Achramovitch be released, and apparently both districts have "lawyered up" to prevent this email from going public. In reviewing the video made of the Board meeting, it appears Dr. Connelly is more concerned about who "leaked" the email. One can only guess the reasons for this.
The Springville Board of Education convened last evening, and several members of the public chastised Dr. Connelly and demanded that the email be released. Connelly attempted to defend concealing the email to the public stating it said things which would be very dangerous to "teachers across the state"
All teachers across the State of New York must demand that this email be released.
