Eventually, the teachers and the administration came to an APPR agreement, and it was approved by NYS Education Department sometime in early May. The district anticipated receiving the increase in school aid as a result of an approved APPR agreement.
And so it seemed, all's well that ends well.
Well, not really.
But that is NOT the end of the story.
There seems to be a severe shortage in Hamburg Schools of any meaningful leadership. The school administrators are some of the very highest paid school administrators in New York State, yet they fail to get their job done and as result aid to the schools is in jeopardy. As has been reported by Concerned Hamburger, the Hamburg High School Principal is one of the highest paid school principals in New York State making in excess of $150,000 in salary and benefits.
It is time, Hamburg Central Schools to make your Administration accountable, or more likely it is time to clean house.
