Does this mean we as the public can find out about William Santarsiero who is principal at Morris Street School and his background and issues surrouding him?

I know we need to know what Mr. Santarsiero did at MSS since his arrival there in 1997 and why Dr. Adeline Gillich was forced out of MSS to another city school because she had information about Mr. Santarsiero and a student that was covered-up?

We know this is just the tip of the iceberg with Gregg Seabury and company. Central office will have a lot of explaining to do in months ahead especially if any current city school staff member is arrested etc.

Maybe cuz she was falling asleep at her desk while teaching there. Mr. Santarsiero would certainly not be in education if he was not a highly qualified individual with an impecable record. Anything you are alluding to his purely rumour

Maybe he hasn't done anything wrong? I certainly wouldn't want a newspaper publishing rumours about me. That is what the National Enquirer is for, and I don't think the teachers of Danbury should be in there either.

Dr. Addie Gillich will tell you a different report about Mr. Santarsiero including other staff members. It's a matter of time before Mr. Santarsiero's real profile is exposed whether in the News-Times or other media.

I caution you about making statements including but not limited to National Enquirer material when Alphonso Robinson has a good relationship with insiders at Danbury City Hall and associates and consequently will only post information that is based upon facts.

Time will reveal the information about said Common Council member and Danbury High School teacher.

Remember former DHS wrestling coach John Nimock and former King Street Intermediate and Morris Street School music teacher Gean Reed who were arrested for inappropriate behavior with students? Nimock was given suspended jail sentence and Reed served jail time.

Question for the record is did SAID DHS TEACHER/COMMON COUNCIL MEMBER COMMIT INAPPROPRIATE ACT?

From http://www.hatcityblog.blogspot.com/

In order to fully understand the rationale behind my report on Common Council member/DHS teacher Gregg Seabury, a little background info is in order.

Since I started this site back in July 2005, I've routinely receive emails offering tips and bits of information on different subjects in Danbury. In all the emails I've received, allegations regarding Seabury tops the list, which is why in the fall of 2007, I finally decided to look into the Seabury's alleged questionable actions as a teacher.

First, I needed to do a bit of legal research and learn about areas of the Freedom of Information Act in regards to an individual's personnel records. Luckily, some of by most faithful readers just happen to be lawyers and after consultation and a bit of research, I learned about my now favorite Connecticut General Statue(s), section 1-212, 1-210 and 10-151c.

I'll save everyone the legal mumbo-jumbo (you can look up the law by doing a Google search) but in a nutshell, according to Connecticut General Statutes 10-151c and 1-210(a), documents and records pertaining to the misconduct of a teacher are deemed "public records" and disclosure of such records "shall not require the consent of the teacher" according to 10-151c and Connecticut case law.

Based on that knowledge, here's portions of a letter to Dr. Sal V. Pascarella Superintendent of Schools City of Danbury Administrative Center.

Dr. Sal V. Pascarella Superintendent of Schools City of Danbury Administrative Center

63 Beaver Brook Road Danbury, CT 06810

Freedom of Information Request

Dear Dr. Pascarella:

Under Connecticut General Statute section I hereby request the right to inspect, and receive copies of all of the following documents and records, whether the same are located at Danbury High School, the Administrative Center, or other location:

1) any documents, written communications, emails, and/or notes, regarding any complaint(s) made against teacher Gregg Seabury for any misconduct and/or alleged misconduct;

2) any documents, written communications, emails, and/or notes, regarding any discipline, reprimand or warning given or made against teacher Gregg Seabury for his misconduct and/or alleged misconduct;

3) any documents, written communications, emails, and/or notes, containing or pertaining to any Board of Education decision or administrative action taken to reprimand, warn, and/or discipline teacher Gregg Seabury for any misconduct and/or alleged misconduct;

[...]

6) any documents, written communications, emails, and/or notes, regarding any complaint(s) made against teacher Gregg Seabury for any misconduct and/or alleged misconduct involving awarding extracredit to students for inappropriate reasons; and/or

7) any documents, written communications, emails, and/or notes, regarding any discipline, reprimand or warning given or made against teacher Gregg Seabury for his misconduct and/or alleged misconduct in connection with awarding extra-credit to students for inappropriate reasons.

[...]

Please also note that under Connecticut law, if a document has information that contains both non-exempt information and exempt information, such portion of the communications/notes regarding non-exempt information (like teacher misconduct) are "public record" and must be disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act. The remaining exempt information may be redacted from the document.

Now that you have a somewhat basic understanding of what's involved in this report, act 2 of this report will focus on the accusations that were made against Seabury and the response one parent claimed he received from Mayor Boughton.

And, now Morris Street School principal Mr. Santarsiero can be legally investigated into charges that have been hidden from public eye in the past.

Oh my! I come back to the area and I see this?

Looks like another one of Boughton's goons is about to go down. Is Seabury running for State Rep again?
