THIS LETTER (in blue)WAS SENT OUT TO ALL HAMBURG STAFF BY HAMURG SCHOOL SUPERINTENDENT STEVEN ACHRAMOVITCH IN DECEMBER 2010.


CONCERNED IS CONCERNED.  
THE HAMBURG SCHOOL DISTRICT HAS TAKEN TO USING THE DISTRICT HOME PAGE TO AIR THEIR DIRTY LAUNDRY AGAINST A PRIVATE CITIZEN, A DISTRICT EMPLOYEE AND SALLY STEPHENSON.   JOAN CALKINS SPEAKS ON BEHALF OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION?  


IT IS LAUGHABLE AS JOAN COMES OFF  LIKE A CHILD ON THE UNION PLEASANT PLAYGROUND KICKING AND  SCREAMING IN FULL TEMPER TANTRUM FASHION.  
MOMMY DEAREST WAS CAUGHT ON THE "TAPER CAPER" LYING, SO SHE IS ACTING OUT AS PLAYGROUND BULLY.  


GET OVER IT JOAN CALKINS, MD, YOU HAVE THE MATURITY LEVEL OF AN 8 YEAR OLD. 


THE DISTRICT HAS EXPOSED THEMSELVES TO EVEN FURTHER LEGAL EXPENSES.  IT WAS REPORTED TO  CONCERNED THAT LEGAL ACTION AGAINST THE DISTRICT AND DR. CALKINS IS IN PLAY.  


WILL THE DISTRICT FOOT THE BILL FOR DR. CALKINS DEFENSE IN WHAT IS REPORTED TO BE A PENDING LEGAL ACTION??? 
LET US WAIT AND SEE. 

HARRIS BEACH LAW FIRM IS GETTING FATTER AND FATTER.  


DR. CALKINS WE CERTAINLY HOPE YOU WILL GET A FRUIT BASKET FROM HARRIS BEACH AT CHRISTMAS TIME, AS YOU MUST BE ONE OF THEIR  FAVORED CLIENTS THIS YEAR.  (KEEP IT UP AND YOU MAY GET A CASE OF OMAHA STEAKS)

SO, MR. ACHRAMOVITCH, READ YOUR OWN WORDS, AND IF YOU WANT TO ATTACK PEOPLE, GET YOUR OWN BLOG, NOT THE DISTRICT HOMEPAGE.  MR. ACHRAMOVITCH THERE MUST BE SOMETHING POSITIVE TO REPORT ON THE DISTRICT WEBSITE?  OH, PERHAPS THAT IS NOT SO, YOU AND JOAN HAVE GUTTED THE DISTRICT OF EVERY SENSE OF PRIDE.  




THE LAWYERS ARE FEASTING ON THIS MATTER. 






THE LETTER FROM MR ACHRAMOVITCH, DEC. 2010.


Good afternoon:

I hope all is well on this last Friday before the holiday break.

The purpose of this communication is to make you aware of and ask for your assistance regarding a very important issue in the school district. It has recently been brought to my attention that inappropriate comments have been made about faculty, staff and students of the District. These comments have been posted on, among other places, websites frequented by members of the Hamburg community. It is not yet clear to us who posted these comments but we do know some of them are disparaging of members of the faculty and staff and in some cases harassing of staff and students.

Certainly, you will agree that such comments, either about faculty, staff or students is entirely unacceptable, in violation of our district policy, and could possibly be criminal in nature. We are taking these matters very seriously and have already contacted law enforcement to investigate. They will determine the source of the inappropriate comments and what further action is warranted.

I am bringing this to your attention for two reasons. First, if you have any information about who might be posting inappropriate or harassing comments on-line about students or staff, please contact me immediately. Together we must ensure all members of the Hamburg CSD community are safe, are treated with dignity and respect, and are free from any harassing behavior.

Second, I am requesting you all review the District's computer use policy, the District's harassment policy, and the District's civility policy which are attached at the end of this message. Given the prolific nature of on-line content, it is always a good idea to refresh memories of these policies and what is expected of all of us when it comes to on-line use and content.

Thank you for your attention and consideration of this very serious matter.

Enjoy the weekend and the upcoming holiday.

Steve

If Kelly Harper had an ounce of character she would speak. She knows exactly what happened and why Joanie is terrified. Cmon Kelly tell the truth about the lies....you can change things. You know the lies and I bet your dedication to St. Ignatius Loyola and social justice is just nagging on you. Tell the truth Kelly.

get emails regarding middle school teacher said...

Blogs follow Steve. He hates teachers, unions and employees in general except for himself and his big fat pay check. He will harass
and terrify us at budget time. He may not even like the color of our hair or skin. He has no regard for anyone but himself. We hear he is cutting more staff. He torments us and he expects us to take this lying down. What went on between the Supt. of Springville and himself regarding one of our teachers? We all are talking. What sinister move for our friend and fellow middle school teacher? Nothing to Hide Steve, than release the emails. You can't because maybe this ignorant sb will see your true lying colors. We have Achramo's number, but the majority of the board are in la la land.

Greece is still watching and interested said...

Scats is watching.

we warned you. "you are in for a rough ride" regarding Steve Achramovitch

"he will lie to you even though he knows that you know he is lying"

Hark!!! eventually the ignorant school board will eventually get his number.

In the meantime as what occurred in Greece, he will bring board members down. eventually he will be asked to leave.

hold on

Joan Calkins got on the board of education in the 2009-10 school year. This is the same school year the teachers mention in her official letter to the community started to get harassed by the district. Joan seems to have a personal agenda and vendetta. Of course the taper caper clearly states her sick minded agenda to attack the three women mentioned, she also mentions some of the math teachers on that tape, and the high school principal, and the superintendent admits that grades were made up. The supinate dent lies about papers he claimed he had from tommy Moses, and the police. A big fat lie. The district did try to use the police against one of the teachers, but the police backed down once they got a few letters from a few lawyers. Get your popcorn ready. Concerned Hamburger please post the entire recording on this blog, should you have it. If not call up the defendents in the case and tell them to send it out to the Internet. Then they can all hear Joan Steve, and others lie. And they can hear that the recording seems to pick up the superintendents voice loud and clear, it seems like it could've been on his person, in my opinion.

Village of Hamburg and Harris Beechers spending lots of time on the blog......why? is harris beechers charging the district per hour??? Holy smokes?

Health teacher said...

Joan is clearly singling out m.k. Joan hates m.k. M.k. Makes Joan out to be the dunce that's she is..... Joan's hatred is clear. Consider this, a male teacher who was laid off in 2010 also went to arbitration. Harris beachcombs stretched it out for two long days.....and one administrator lied under oath...shockers. Tracie lapardi and some Harris beach suit from Rochester were dragging things out...more time more money. And this male teacher filed NYS division of human rights charges against the district. Why isn't he on the district web page???? The district then spent thousands to set up a new tenure area to enshrine the EMT teacher in his own tenure area, screwing his fellow Heath teach colleagues. So Joaner, why you singling out Martha???? you got an axe to grind??? Joaner is a liar...she is on tape lying.

Klozman said...

Achramo and his lackey Calkins have one goal: Since they couldn't prevent Sally Stephenson's election they are filing a civil suit by resurrecting the nearly two year old taper caper issue in the belief that if they win she will be forced from the Board. They have already seen how she negated a nefarious scheme to punish a Hamburg teacher for speaking his mind in a Springville BOE meeting and realize that she can and will thwart them at every turn. Calkins current idiotic error is contained in her District letter, some statements of which are unquestionably defamation of character. Sally, et alia, have not cost the District $118,000, Acramo has through his ridiculous pursuit of windmills and his attempts to defend illegal procedures. This will not end well for the Achramo contingency.

Dear Dr. Caulkins, Dr. Achramovitch's, Dils and others,

Are you aware of the fact that Hamburg Teachers Association (HTA) endorsed Sally Stephenson and Laura Heeter prior to the 2012 Hamburg Central School District Board of Education Election? They voted as a body to endorse both candidates, but chose not to put their endorsement in writing, because they feared retaliation from the Board and Acromo. This fear stems from a long line of retalitory acts by HCSD in the past against teachers who exercised their constitutional rights of free speech. Evidence of the HTA's fear in revealing their endorsement of Sally and Laura was when a HTA member presented the board with a copy of the postcard that they sent out to the community. The postcard encouraged community members to vote YES on the budget, but made no mention of Sally or Laura or any candidates running for the school board. In order to support Sally and Laura, without leaving a paper trail, the HTA delegates called community members and rallied support for Sally and Laura. Those calls, along with "other efforts" propelled Sally to a landslide victory and moved Laura within just a few votes of bumping out the BOE President Joan Caulkins. So, just so you know Joan, Acromo, Dils and others, the Hamburg Teachers do not support you, they actually want you all GONE. The community obviously agreed with this as Sally received an overwhelming amount of votes, crushing the BOE president by 200 votes. So when you post disparaging remarks on the district website about one of our teachers and other community members please realize that you do not have our support and you are driving a larger wedge between us. We will not tolerate this behavior and we will continue to work to support those who are bold enough to stand up to you.

I recall back during school board appreciation month, almost a year before Sally gave the district a major blow in the devlin court, MK stood up and told the board they were not running meetings appropriately, she handed them open meeting law rules and they blew her off...shouldve listened. MK tells the HTA they dont follow the rules and they are starting to listen. Dr. Calkins you are an arrogant b-----. This matter has taken on statewide awareness. We understand the teacher and the BOE member was contacted by the education editor at the NYS Times and Albany TImes Union. I was told just yesterday that the NYS chapter of the ACLU is ready to make a statement on this matter. Joan Calkins, you are an elected official, and you will pay dearly for this cowardly attack on these people. Dont you realize people are sick of Government and People like you???

Anonymous 2;31. The HTA is full of cowards. If they were a real union they would be picketing the district and filing charges in NYS Court. Heck Buffalo Schools filed a lawsuit over teacher transfers. The HTA needs to wake up, get rid of the weak knee's fools who think they know what they are doing. Dont you have a grievance chair that doesnt file grievances? She should be all over Joaner for intimidating the due process tool of grievances. Instead, we are told the HTA leadership does nothing. If I were a teacher in Hamburg, I'd get Phil Rumore on the phone. Do you think the President of the Buffalo School Board would defame a teacher on their website. NOT IN A MILLION YEARS. HTA MEMBERS SHOULD PICKET IN FRONT OF JOANS PLACE OF BUSINESS. HER DOCTORS PRACTICE IS ON LONG AVE IN THE VILLAGE. BUT, SHE IS NEVER THERE, SHE IS AT THE ADMIN BUILDING. GRAB A SIGN YOU COWARDS AND FIGHT THIS. Wasnt the teacher defamed a former HTA Officer????

Hey Steve -- your letter pretty much accuses, comments, harasses, and violates district policy you point out. You are asking us to respect.

Teachers: You do not have to be silent. Your union serves a purpose greater than wage increases. The superintendent's office and the sb has lost all credibility. Declare a vote of no confidence. That will heat things up.

Holy shit....I just heard that sept 21 tape...totally an illegal executive session. Achramo calls the meeting to order with no stated reason to be in executive session. Achramo starts off by talking about an employees health, the the middle school musical. Since when is a middle school musical and approved executive session topic?? Joan claims to be the expert on grading...trying to justify the high school principal making up grades. Dils lies. What else is knew??? And Pom Pom sounds like she's at a tennis match. Ooooo...aaaaa...ooooohhhh. Sounds like Pom Pom brought munches to the feast. These people are whale dung floating n the bottom of the Atlantic. Maybe they should been watching the superintendent andntom bagley with the transportation money. The district is gonna get cut 1.3 million....from the same year that the district lost 1.8 million. Calkins, dils and Pom Pom , calkins, and Reynolds should be forced to the street. Get rid of these people. Stat.
