It appears the Board will finally get around to discussing the Superintendent search. Remember, Steve is still collecting his whopper salary of $170,000 per year, and Jetter is collecting an extra $175.00 per day.   

Word on the street is that NYSED has began to withhold money from the district to repay the $1.3 million dollars in lost transportation funding dating back to the Tom Bagley era.  So, it seems that the district finances are in a far sloppier state than the former Board ever let on to the public.  
So, how much money does the district have?  
Perhaps this will be nailed down at the special meeting.

Why don't all the board members have emails listed on the school website?

Hamburg Central School District officials have received word that $1.34 million in transportation aid New York State was seeking to retrieve from Hamburg does not have to be paid back.

The dispute with the state involved 14 transportation contracts going back eight years. The state had maintained Hamburg violated state reimbursement policies in the submission of the bus transportation contracts. The district had submitted the contracts and was reimbursed through clerical errors, the district said.

The state Education Department then sought to subtract the money Albany was owed from Hamburg’s state aid payments, and the district turned to its state legislators.

Several different state lawmakers sponsored legislation forgiving Hamburg. The measures reached the governor’s desk three times, and they were vetoed three times by two different governors, the latest by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo last year.

Barbara Sporyz, the district’s director of administrative services, said the district wrote a letter again last November asking for amnesty of the clerical error on the transportation contracts. The district heard back in late April that any aid due will be paid. Since Hamburg already received the aid, it would not have to pay it back, she said.

I am writing this as an 17 year old going into their senior year at Hamburg High School. I doubt this will even get posted, but I think you all need to see this from our, the kids, perspective. Instead of focusing your time and energy on how to better the district, you all choose instead to bicker like teenagers, and it benefits nooone. "Pom Pom Patty"... you are adults, and really should no better than to act like this. You have reduced yourselves to being schoolyard bullies. I highly doubt this will change your mind.. but for the sake of the children, I REALLY hope you all begin to transfer the energy you are putting into hatred and negativity, and help fix the problems you are complaining about.

Sincerely, A Concerned Teenager
