Hamburg Board to interview superintendent candidates

According to an article in the Buffalo News the Hamburg School Board will interview candidates for the superintendent position.  Recently,  Jon MacSwan withdrew his interest in the position.     It appears that Hamburg is having difficulty attracting school superintendent material, and will likely have to look within their own ranks for someone to take the job.  Like Buffalo Public Schools, it seems that anyone with experience is shying away from Hamburg.

After the departure of Peter Roswell in 2007, Hamburg has had four superintendents.  Mark Crawford left Hamburg after a short junket,  Steve Achramovitch ran out of Hamburg after taking a verbal beating by Hamburg School Board President David Yoviene, and well, we know what happened to Doctor Richard Jetter.    Since  fall 2014, Vincent Coppola has been at the helm.

The chaos of the last 18 months spearheaded by a rabid, uninformed and vitriolic parent and administrative group has permanently voided the adage "Hamburg the town that friendship built".  So who would come to Hamburg Central Schools?  Perhaps the next superintendent will need a working third eye.

Hamburg CSD is run by a bunch of fools. You have a school board president (dave yoviene) who is a college drop out. You have the hta president (amy takacs) who collects DWI's and will do whatever ANY "community member guy" who will bang her says. You have a drunk local lawyer (dan chiacchia) who screams at meetings and the board allowed him to
control them with fear, until they finally stood up to him on June 11, 2014 and held a meeting to reprimand him. http://hamburgschools.org/cms/lib/NY19000277/Centricity/Domain/30/Minutes-6-11-2014.pdf.

These people are so clueless and unethical that they need to all quit and start over.

jeff sortisio from frontier interviewed in Hamburg. His wife was cut from the district as a science teacher. The frontier high school teachers would love it if Hamburg would take him away. He is a hot head. Please take him away.

Yeah dans been real quiet, wonder why??? Sit tight it's all gonna make a lot of sense real soon. Dan and ed are nothing short of bullies. Ed should work on not raising bully kids. We hear his behavior is being repeated at bvs and on the boston school buses. Shat do you expect from children when they see thugs at home. Some children of the bullies are actually taught to lie. Yep- this is true. Sit tight. Btw, does whipple have former HHS grads working the club? Does the state PTA know hamburgs vp owns strip clubs and is morally questionable. Check out her strip club history. Really moms- your ok with that? Morality police please help and clear the sickos.

Why on earth does the BOE need to entertain the thought of more superintendent interviews, brainiac Flynn cane up with this foolish ranking system, so why not just ask who ever was second on this ranking list if they are still interested... OMG some common sense please, you've already gone through the process... Oh Andrew wants to sit in on more waisted time and bill the district AGAIN...

how can concerned allow anonymous to be so mean and irrelevant. concerned you allow for comments that speak about peoples children. do you censor any comments or can i say anything about anyone. i know i do not have to read them and i am sorry i did. but by allowing this you invalidate much of what you is posted here. do you have a policy of what can and cannot be said? if so remind those who comment what is civil. children and personal lives should be off limits. let those who have not sinned cast the first stone.

8:24 PM-

I agree with you, but you see that Mr. Piazza is a liar and he has serious issues. He organized that "hate session" at a Roman Catholic Church in Boston NY- you know the one, you were probably there. He used a CATHOLIC church as a setting for his hidden agenda ( more to come on that but remember this- BVS). So then the freak, who has terrible public speaking skills, and if you need to hear them they are on youtube, and his wife complained that a person actually stood up to them- well, looked down at them as they seem to be vertically challenged ( that could be the issue if you are inclined to consider those issues). He, Mr. Piazza and his wife flat out lied to the Hamburg School District- on tape, in writing and more to come on that. Well, it turns out that those who preach anti-bullying are raising a few of their own. Does that surprise anyone? So, maybe if more people called out the crazy parents of children who bully we would see less of this kind of thing. Did you see the crazy kids in ELBA who tried to kill their teacher or the kid in NYC who threw his 62 year old teacher across the room. There is a reason why DASA came into being, because children who come from these kinds of households practice what they are taught at home and what they see there parents do. So, the Piazzas, who put them "private lives" into the public domain- see the Buffalo News or the hate sessions on You Tube must be aware that they are now under the microscope- for being liars. Mrs. Piazza is so stupid, in my opinion that she said things that can easily be proven on the You Tube videos- and audios. We need not discuss Christina Whipple and her strip club antics- and she has children at home too. So Hamburg- why don't you cast your self righteous indignation against the ring leaders of the haters. Mr. Piazza and his questionaires from the BOCES meeting---where did those go Eddy? So, 8:24 where have you been? And where is Danny Boy?

"The overall purpose of PTA is to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children" The pillars of the PTA- Christina Whipple- all young girls should reach their potential to be pole dancers and wear scantly a thing to entertain scumbags. Gotta love all of this- Hamburg VP of the PTA owns a strip club that was shut down more than once for violations. Parents- do not let your daughters around this kind of person-do you want your girls to grow up to entertain dirty old men on Route 5? Christina Whipple, how many Hamburg grads show up for work at your place.

I'm betting that there's significant overlap between the extreme parents group that fueled this whole mess (and then ran away) and the type of morons who refuse to vaccinate their children. It's the same "screw everyone else" mentality in both cases.

That parents group hurt Hamburg. Embroiled the community in petty personal politics that embarrassed us all, and created a situation where we can no longer attract top professionals.

I hope that our community decisionmakers have the list of the parents in that destructive group so that they can ignore any advice from them in the future.

Check out the minutes from Sept 19, 2013- thats when the parents and the fools on the board entered into an executive session to bitch out a board member. The minutes actually say- to protect the identity of "informers"- what the F? Well here is some information on the informers- Mrs. and Mr K. Krencik, Mrs. W. Evendon, the bully producing couple none other than Eddy and Beth Pizza and a few others. Wendy ran out of the meeting into the arms of security enforcer and Village police man Mr. Mike Melisz, who along with another honorable officer of the enforcement Officer Cullen were awaiting as stage hands in the As the Hamburg Turns soap opera. The names of the haters- thats pretty easy to figure out- check out the hate session recording. And the pictures on line. Gee the Buffalo News has some beauties of that little guy Eddy acting as if he was a game show host. Just look at their Facebook page they start off a tough and we are gonna get the bad guy-isn and now they are announcing bake sales- reflective of their true cowardice. Check out some of the emails Daniel Chiacchia, Esq. sent out- now there is the picture of a hater, opinion of course. Heck some of these guys have been creating illusions at the expense of others for a very long time, right cap't crunch? Maybe they realize a man like Vince Copolla would cut them off at the knees if they tried their shit on his watch. Can you only imagine that people like this have produced children? 99.9% of Hamburg families are wonderful and honorable with fine children who are stars in their own way. This bunch- the damage they did to themselves and their families is far worse than the public embarrassment they subjected themselves to, kids learn from their parents. Nice role models.

Really? I think the issue with Hamburg starts here with the people who run this blog!!!

6:55 am,

Christina Whipple should not show her face in Hamburg. She comes off like she is a pillar of the community, but her livelihood comes from exploiting young women at her strip clubs around town- these have been shut down several times and once shut down for prostutiuion and drugs. She comes off like she has the moral superiority to judge others- when really she has not one ounce of morality. Why would any mother or father ever allow any of their young girls near someone like this. It is disgusting and she should be banded from the schools. What is this community thinking. Its about time someone called her out in public. Maybe the parents should get signs and picket out in front of the club in Hamburg. Pigs.

MOM CAS said...

6:55-

And whats wrong with this blog? You obviously read it, and blog on it. So, are you part of the problem too? A blog exists because of bloggers, and that be you and me fool. Get with it, right?

Anonymous said...

It's funny when someone who exploits young women is "tweeting" about anyone else. Who does Mrs. Whipple think she is? You would think she would keep really quiet and hope that the press (Buff News, USA today etc.) does not pick up and run the story that the hamburg schools pta vp runs a strip club IN HAMBURG! Yes, this is crazy!

I LOVE THIS ARTICLE FROM THE BUFFALO NEWS- PARANOID JAMES MARTINEZ- THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO GET FIRED FROM BVS AND HIS SHEEP STAFF FOOLISHLY CAME OUT IN SUPPORT OF THE WACKO. REALLY- DOES THE STAFF IN HIS SCHOOL HAVE ONE CLUE ABOUT WHAT A CRAZY MAN THEY HAVE ON THEIR HANDS. SO, WHY ISNT THE SCHOOL BOARD ADDRESS MARTINEZ, REALLY THE EVIDENCE AGAINST THE GUY IS OVERWHELMING. HE COVERED UP THE JETTER CAR THING, STAGED A BREAK IN to AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TWICE- OVER WEEKENDS- DISENGAGED THE CAMERAS AND WAS SEEN TAKING BOXES OF DOCUMENTS OUT OF THE BUILDINGS. ARE WE GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT TIL THAT PSYCO HURTS A KID. MAYBE HE IS DOWN THEIR IN BVS COVERING UP THE CRIMES THAT HAVE HAPPENED IN THAT SCHOOL_ YOU KNOW THE ONES RIGHT? INVOLVING A LITTLE KID THAT WAS HARASSED NOT ONLY BY KIDS BUT THE PRINCIPAL AND THE TEACHER- THERE IS A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE DISTRICT AND A FEW TEACHERS AND ACHRMOVITCH AND GOD KNOWS WHO ELSE- PROBABLY SOME OF THE PARENTS. ITS ALL PUBLIC RECORD CHECK IT OUT....GET RID OF MARTINEZ- HIS IS NUTS!

Rumors about possible disciplinary action against a principal brought teachers and parents to a Hamburg Central School Board special meeting Thursday night, but no action was taken.

Wearing “Team Boston Valley” T-shirts, about a dozen teachers and staff from Boston Valley Elementary School stood in support of their principal as second-grade teacher Melissa Quinones spoke in support of James Martinez. She said teachers are stressed and feel under attack by comments on a blog about school issues.

“Last night I had to stand up at open house in front of my parents and try to keep it together with a lump in my throat, because I had just heard another rumor that our administrator is going to lose his job, not based on anything that has to do with our students our staff, our parents, but based on lies and rumors and ridiculous nonsense,” Quinones said. “Our staff is under so much stress, because we shouldn’t have to worry about and deal with nonsense like this.”

Quinones, whose child is a student at the school, praised Martinez, as did another parent.

Acting Superintendent Richard Jetter said the board has not taken any action against Martinez. The board met in executive session before the public section of the meeting.

“We’re looking into another related matter, but the board is not interested in taking any action against the Boston Valley principal. It may not have anything to do with him,” Jetter said. “We don’t believe it is related to this individual.”

He said law enforcement will look into the other matter, but “it certainly is nothing criminal.”

“There has been no discussion about any of our principals doing anything wrong,” he said.

JAMES MARTINEZ, Boston Valley Principal is completely unfit to be around kids, let alone be the principal of an elementary school. Recently he told a group of children, parents and teachers that they could not have their yearly picnic outside because "there might be snipers in the woods." YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT CRAZY. This nut is the definition of crazy. IF THAT SITUATION DOES NOT MAKE YOU THINK ABOUT PULLING YOUR KIDS OUT OF BOSTON VALLEY, I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU. If you don't believe that happened just ask any Boston Valley parent who is "in the know."

I agree with the Comments about Martinez. Did you know his former secretary filed a grievance against him and requested a transfer (and got it) because of his explosive and abusive behavior? He is crazy. This man is probationary, which means he could be fired for any reason, or no reason at all..and he continues to act nuts.
