Springville's Connelly stressed out?

Concerned Hamburger posted a video and post ( in color below)of Springville Superintendent Paul Connelly defending an email he sent to former Hamburg Superintendent Achramovitch in 2012.   Connelly was troubled by teacher Christopher Cerrone's activism against student testing,  and attempted to influence Cerrone's employment as a teacher by contacting the former Superintendent of Hamburg, Cerrone's employer.  Connelly wanted to "get" Cerrone at work, and exchanged a series of damaging emails with Achramovitch.   Cerrone a resident of Springville and vocal "opt out" advocate, was elected to the Springville School Board in 2014, and is now Connelly's boss.   One must wonder if the " damaging" emails as referenced in this short video have anything to do with Connelly's extended administrative leave.  Perhaps the Buffalo News should submit a Freedom of Information request to Springville and Hamburg and shake out the Connelly- Achramovitch exchange. 
Paul Connelly, Superintendent of Springville Schools is called on the carpet about the email he wrote to Steve Achramovitch, Hamburg Schools Superintendent about a Hamburg Social Studies Teacher, and Springville resident.  This is only one segment of the meeting.  
Apparently, the Board President is ignorant in his knowledge of Open Meetings Laws as he attempts to stop the public recording of this meeting.  His arrogance and ignorance reminds Concerned of the ersatz  Hamburg Board President Dr. Joan Calkins.


Watch until the end of this clip, you will not be surprised at the arrogance exhibited by Dr. Connelly towards one of his bosses, a Springville Board of Education member.  

Perhaps, Dr. Connelly needs to find a new job?

Need to stand up with this teacher. He stands up for the teachers and students. Everyone email, write and go to board meetings and press for the release of the emails. Contact the media too.

The people don't care. Caulkins was re-elected. Caimano was without a second. Theodore Welch puts out fake numbers. The Warden will run without an opponent. The bully Kelly runs this community.

Give up people, no one cares.

Transparency is what scares those who abuse power. Keep up the good fight teacher.

did this really happen? only one springville board member saw anything wrong with this strong arm tactic?

need the truth said...

we need to all stand up for Chris. What did these two conspiring Supt's have in store for Chris? Why was the Supt. of Springville so concerned as to how anyone found out about his oop's email concerning our Hamburg teacher. Please don't let this go, the emails need to be seen. We need to know how these two operate and if anything unethical or what or who violated. what was the threat? if the emails are benign they would be right out there with them. It is telling that they don[t want the public to know how they operate. Perhaps something illegal suggested?

drugs in middle school tell the truth said...

TO ANONYMOUS 7/2 2:48 pm

Truth is feared here. The Supt. lies. He told us that during the drug raid at the middle school this past May that NO DRUGS were found. When in fact drugs were found. I have the name and what was taken. Why be dishonest to us parents. People talk and the word spread. This is not a rumor, drugs were found and our Supt. put a un truthful spin on it. What we want is the TRUTH. We need to know what is really going on in our kids schools.

thanks parent/teacher said...

we do care.

When we stop caring our society is in trouble. We need to raise kids with values that care about others not just themselves. We need to promote the values in our children to be active and vocal participants in society. Helpful caring people who will speak out and make a difference. Indifference is to have failed. I commend those that stand up for their beliefs and principils. I commend all those who have exposed this abuse, It takes courage to push back and to remain steadfast in what is right. We support this teacher and condemn the attempts to harm him. Parent and teacher

Mr. Cerrone cares about the students. He started a campaign against the state tests that hammer our kids and limit their education. A bunch of parents boycotted the tests here this year. Follow his blog:

Connelly is running scared. It's quite a turn around he made. Just a few months ago he was emailing the hamburg superintendent trying to get Chris silenced, or possibly worse. Now he is asking Chris to join their advisory board, how transparent. Does the springville board get the fact that bullying has no place in a school district? And certainly they should not tolerate their superintendent bullying a community member and parent. Injustice anywhere, is a threat to justice everywhere"!

Vote for Amy she has the best interests of our kids. Perhaps the other candidate should be Robin List another educator. If the rumor is true that Mr. Chiacchia is funding his campaign it is disappointing, otherwise please vote for only these two to ensure 2 educators who know the challenges of public education. Thank you

spot on said...

to anonys 2:48 pm spot on, spends hundreds if thousands of tax dollars with lawyers to keep the public not informed

fact find and report said...

What was all telling on this deal is the abrupt departure of Steve Achramovitch. His contract was clear. If removed by the sb he would receive 1 year salary as a severance package. Always wondered why Steve Achramovitch would just walk away from that sweet deal. Now it makes sense, appr was the tool that would/could be used to target just about any teacher. Legal invoices at the time reflect that tax dollars were spent to part 83 CC. for his educational views. This should be investigated and turned over to St educationa as well as NYS teachers union.

Don't vote for anyone endorsed or supported by any of the extremist parents group behind Yoviene and Jetter. They've proven what their judgment is worth.
