Hamburg School District is in last place


According to the Buffalo News, Gov. Cuomo means business on the deadline for an approved teacher evaluation plan.  The drop-dead date is January 15, 2013.  So, we all learned in the Buffalo News that the Superintendent and the Hamburg Teachers Union have not reached an agreement.  We reported here, that Superintendent Achramovitch:
(a) would not give the teachers time to review the plan, so they were not adequately prepared to address the district's plan, and 
(b) released an APPR plan to New York State Ed, that he willfully knew had expired (a.k.a: it appears, Steve tried to lie to NYSED).   

So, it seems the Superintendent is responsible for the penalty for not making a bona fide effort to make a deal with the teachers and honestly reporting that deal to NYSED for approval.  That penalty is approximately $750,000.

So, who will suffer if there is no plan in place? 

 #1 The STUDENTS 
#2 THE TEACHERS- due to cuts 
#3 THE STAFF- no teachers, no programs= no staff 
#4 THE ADMINISTRATION, 
#5 THE LAWYERS- AKA HARRIS BEACH AND ALL OTHERS,
#6 STEVE ACHRAMOVITCH- someone has to be the last one out the door to turn off the lights- and like always- it is the fat cat.
#7 Joan Calkins and the Board of Education- they apparently have no hearts nor any brains. Had they,  Mr. Achramovitch would still be standing on the unemployment line from his last attempt run a school district in Greece NY.

SO BOARD OF EDUCATION: ARE YOU PREPARED TO FIRE MR. ACHRAMOVITCH? 
AFTER ALL, YOU ARE ALL RESPONSIBLE FOR THE STUDENTS IN HAMBURG.

Is the sb & the Supt insane to put our school district at risk like this?

Dr. Joan Calkkins has stooped low using her patients telling them that their programs are being cut (their loved sport) because of the teachers not passing what they want. My friends son was so distraught that he approached some teachers in the high school telling them that he attends school because of his particular sport and that his Dr. says that he will lose that sport because of what the teachers won't pass.


Dr. Calkins this is shameful and distructive to this young man and his delicate psyche. Stop this tactic it is hurting some kids.

Why has Supt Steve Achramovitch put this off until the last breath? When or if the Supt. loses up to One Million this should cost him his job. Union appr plan was submitted to him well in advance, he rejected it because he wants more than we should give. Teachers jobs are on the line with Achramovitch's dishonest leadership, or lack of. He has the sb FOOLED. The Union did its part, so Joan don't blame the teachers blame TEFLON Man Achramo he is lying to you to as well as the rest of the sb

wake up sb said...

This is rich, blame the teachers, I don't think so, Achramovitch had our plan and played games with it.

Report this to the media Achramovitch the Man, I think not. Wake up School board in any other organization he would be gone.

Media, State Education aware

now if I were Achramo I would be s***ing my pants. A plan was given to him and in the 11th hour he spits on it. So blame Achramovitch for no appr. agreement. Achramo is on a fiscal cliff and he put us here not the teachers.
Dr. Calkins, Steve is not giving you accurate information, so please don't convey this anymore to you patients and their families. This is simply not right.
