Achramovitch claims the District will lobby NYSED

WGRZ Journalist Ron Plants was finally granted an interview by Steven Achramovitch, please click on the WGRZ link to watch the story.  Steve seems mighty sure of himself. In one version of the interview aired on Channel Two at 6:12 p.m., Steve indicated the District would "lobby the New York State Education Department (NYSED)".  

Apparently, Steve has not read the NO is NO post, nor did he hear Gov. Cuomo when he stated there will be no extension. 

Perhaps, Steve has already contacted Harris Beach Albany and NYC offices to visit NYSED and beg for an extension. 

Readers should also note, that Concerned has been notified that Hamburg Teachers have had an evaluation model in place for decades.  Teachers are observed and evaluated every two years, and Hamburg Administrators often will visit teacher classrooms.  Concerned was also advised, that the only district employee lacking an systematic evaluation is Steve Achramovitch.

Please note, Steve is not looking his spry self.

Achramovitch must go, he cannot lead and we cannot negotiate in good faith with a man who cannot speak the truth. Accramovitch has too many tricks up his sleave
APPR appeals process,just for starters. No attachments given to the appr proposal. Sorry dirty tricks is his game and dishonesty is his style. Sorry a leopard doesn't change his spots.

Harris Beech/Steve Achramovitch said...

Concerned, Steve speed dials Harris Beech to blow through $$$ to save face regarding not delivering on appr with NYSE. Guess what advise will given from Harris Beech. The discussions goes something like this.

Harris Beech: well steve we are always willing to assist, but it will cost you(the sd). we will do what ever you want for big $$$

Steve: ok it doesn't cost me it is other peoples money so go ahead make me look good I don't care what it costs. Help me save face.

Harris Beech: it is a uphill battle, but we will make you look good. It will cost you

Steve: that's ok go I can blow another $450K school board will do what i want ,so go with it, they listen and obey me, except those two bitches on the sb Holly and Sally, the rest in my pocket.
I walk on water with them.

steve's sick satisfaction screwing staff said...

Energy in our HTA

HTA meetings packed. We showed up we delivered. Now this sleeper of a School Board (2 exceptions) will try to spin this into something it is not.

Steve Ahramovitch is a bad fit, he controls our jobs lies to us and threatens our careers and staff. He should not be in any position of power, Steve abuses his positon. Achramo Gets a sick satisfaction screwing with us. He cannot deliver and we will need a new Supt. who we trust. He has lied one to many times.

To our school leaders, we cannot work with Mr. Achramovitch, he has done too much harm. We need a truthfull leader and Mr. Achramovitch is not that man.

Thank you Watchdog,

independent means outside the school district personnel and Erie 1 Boces. Steve is dishonest,we assume he gave a directive to administrators to scare teachers with loss of jobs. That is exactly what Joan Calkins pulled publically on 1/11/13. It didn't work we stayed strong. We are sick of the treatment, lies and threats from administration. We thank sb members who have condemned this type of behavior.

Response to steve on channel 2



Steve Achramovitch realizes there is no lobbying for additional dollars with the State. Steve's attempt to buy time,try to sound good (he Cannot). Steve knows that he is trying to spin this defeat into something other than what it is. It is a vote against steve achramovitch and a vote against an expensive experiment in education. STEVE'S own zeal to get his way at any cost, cost him. We have witnessed for ourselves what others have been talking about. We would never sign a contract with a dishonest salesman.

Steve even now cannot tell the truth. Steve what do you tell the school board about the actual events regarding C Kaney's remarks to our hta members, just deny,deny, deny? How can you come back to the table when you know that we know that you are lying again. This is the reason that all broke down. You and your administrator went way over the line got caught and we walked away. Steve you are so conditioned to lie and blame others. Now Steve would have our school board belive 4 HTA members lied about the events on Tuesday with adminsitrator C.K.

Trivia Quiz: Which Hamburg Central School District Board of Education Member has not taken a college class, does not have one college credit and does not have a single college degeee? Write in to guess who it is......

joan is an idiot said...

Joan Calkins- THis is the man who had his contract extended for 2 years in JUne. Maybe he should have been negotiating APPR not his own labour contract?

Buffalo News Sat edition - read more of Steve's lies
We HAD an agreement in JUNE '12 ??? With whom??
Made it sound like teachers had 3 votes - did I miss something??
Buff News needs to do some sort of special investigation of this superintendent & BOE - where is all the money going?!
Who budgets what they don't have?
Where would the EXTRA cash go? Oh wait - i think it was sent to Lucy Calkins !!

All I have to say is that I saw the report on TV and Steve looked like an ABSOLUTE incompetent jackass.

It's nice to know that many others saw that interview as well. He certainly lacks leadership qualities.

Colleen Kaney only got her job because her mother is a secretary in the district and played up to all of the admins over the years to help her daughter!!!!

Steve looks better than the union looks. Fools that eat their young.

I think I know who the board member is that does not have a single college credit. Wow, it is amazing that you can be on the board and have zero education. It is hard to believe that someone with no education can be on a board that makes decisions for all of those teachers (all of whom have masters degrees). Did anyone expose the fact that he is uneducated three years ago when he last ran for the board? Someone should get the word out that he is not qualified.

C.K. Dad was also on the budget ambassadors committee( ad hoc committee makes budget recommendations to sb) More to come. Threats during negotiations, a higher authority enpowered her to feel confident enough to think she is protected (special tx.) Sorry not acceptable in any school district, this conduct and other transgressions.

CH and supporters, posting hurtful, inappropriate, and irrelevant comments like ‘Anonymous January 19, 2013 at 11:54 PM’ is exactly why you have waning followers and no credibility. You should be ashamed, but that is asking too much from your simple spiteful minds. You hide behind this blog and take personal shots at CK and other? Come out of hiding and let us see how perfect your personal lives are. Bulling at its best. I call BS!

Jack and Jill said...

Anonymous 3:25...seems like Concerned removed the comment you referenced. Too bad its the truth. As for waning followers, we watch this blog everyday. It is 99.99% true. The district had in the past threatened teachers for going on it. See Achramo Merry Christmas December 2010. As for waning followers, I watch the stats counter and its almost at 260,000K. And it seems that lately, its the only place to get news on the district. If you think this stuff is false, do tell were the false stuff is? THe stuff about CK is true...I dont care about her sex life, but I do care that she broke the law by threatening teachers. Get your story straight.

ERIE 1 Boces chief knows of our problem said...

Response 1/20/3:35 pm'

You want to dig a little you will discover more. Right now we need to focus on a new LEADER.

Mr.Ogilvie knows of our problem with him, let us see what he will do with this information.

Secret ballot on Steve said...

Lets have a secret ballot on Steve Achramovitch in all 6 buildings. We would probably see 90% of staff want him gone. Armor would probably have an 80% vote against him, just a few still support him there.

Armor

bad deal/students/taxpayer/teacher said...

BRAVO TEACHERS,

TAKING A STAND AGAINST TYRANNY&, DISHONESTY

UNPROVEN EXPERMINMENT IN TEACHER EVALUATION,TESTING, PRESSURE ON STUDENTS&TEACHERS, PUTTING TOO MANY $$ RESOURCES INTO APPR. AND NOT THE CLASSROOM.

450 k WOULDN'T EVEN BEGIN TO COVER THE COST OF APPR. ESTIMATE AT $400. PER STUDENT TO PROPERLY IMPLEMENT & YEARLY MAINTAIN APPR. SCHOOL DISTRICTS ALREADY SOUNDING THE WARNING OF APPR NOT BEING ADEQUATELY FUNDED.

WHAT THE MEDIA WILL DISCOVER? MONERY OFFERED BY THE STATE WILL NOT COVER THE COST OF THIS RTTT, (APPR)

$1 MILLION 500,000. DOLLARS, IN HAMBURG NOT A GOOD DEAL. FINANCIALLY THE STATE'S OFFERINGS OF $450K,IS A MILLION DOLLAR SHORTFALL TO OUR SCHOOL DISTRICT.

JUST IMAGINE STEVE BEING THE ACCUSER AND THE JURIOR. HE WAS A SNAKE PUTTING THAT IN THE APPEAL PROCESS.

OUR JOBS WERE THREATEN BY HIS ADMINISTRATOR WHILE ON THE CLOCK. ANY OTHER EMPLOYEE WOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. WE ARE SICK OF THE DOUBLE STANDARDS IN THIS SCHOOL DISTRICT, FORMER SB MEMBER DAUGHTER ALSO GETTING SPECIAL TX, JUST KEEP SHIFTING HER ARROUND. A FACT.

It's not a shortfall! It's a revenue enhancement!

I throw up in my mouth a little bit everytime I hear his inane doubletalk. Don't you?

Anonymous said...

Double talk, because Steve doesn't know what the hell he is talking about. Achramo does nothing and then when all hell breaks loose he lets his bored of ed think that he is on top of things. I don'tknow what or who he is on top of,but it isn't school affairs.
