Putnam Valley Central School District - Notice - June 24, 2010

The District received Mr. Jonathan Bryant’s resignation as Principal on Monday, June 21, 2010. At a Special Meeting of the Board of Education on Wednesday, June 23, 2010, the Board officially accepted, upon my recommendation, the resignation of Mr. Jonathan Bryant.

This occurrence should not have a negative impact on the High School graduation. Mr. Sam Oliverio, High School Assistant Principal, is more than capable of standing in and covering the duties of the Principal. In fact, Mr. Oliverio has known these seniors for eight years: first in his capacity as an Assistant Principal at the Middle School and later as the Assistant Principal at the High School. The senior class even dedicated their yearbook this year to Mr. Oliverio (or “Mr. O” as the students affectionately call him).

Following the induction of the new Board trustees on July 13, there will be a discussion about the approach we may want to take with the secondary campus in terms of leadership structure.

Well...it could be just about anything considering his past performance..., It only takes on average, two years, to see what you have when it comes to administrators...

You guys are all nuts the reason he resigned is because his Uncle Frank Mayor of bustling Frankfort has offered him the Chief of Police job and he has accepted.

Chief of Police job? Puh lease police!!
Why would he not finish the year as principal? I'm not a math teacher, but it does not add up!

I believe it reads the superintendent RECOMMENDED he resign. It does not sound as if this were his decision.

Frankfort discusses candidates...
"Herkimer County Personnel Officer Steven Billings confirmed the meeting focused on a list of eligible police chief candidates . Of the six candidates, only two — former Little Falls police officer Scott Beach and retired Utica police officer James Goldsmith – expressed interest in the position and were found to have the necessary qualifications, he said."

Can Uncle Frank really decide who fills this position? It appears to be a board decision.

That is routine wording- the superintendent recommends that the board accept the resignation. It doesn't mean that he recommended the resignation. The superintendent recommends hirings, leaves of absence, other personnel issues. Don't jump to conclusions.

Anonymous, what exactly do you mean by 4 yrs of Hell? KobiWatch, some people in PV would disagree with you about the terrible job. Some people liked him and wanted him to stay. Personally, I did not have much interaction with him so I can't say. What was meant by 'once a bad boy always a bad boy'. Does this mean the Board of Education missed something when they hired him? Many people in PV are wondering what happened too. If anyone knows the true story please post.

At Morrisville-Eaton he did not have a good reputation, although he always seemed to schmooze the Board of Ed. who mistakenly gave him tenure then suggested he resign when they saw his true colors. Principal Bryant is energetic and articulate and well dressed. He was also abusive, arrogant, self-centered, sneaky, and sometimes plain ridiculous. He held grudges, there was payback (lunch duties, rumors, memos, public ridicule etc.) and I found him disrespectful especially to seasoned professionals who had experience. And of course there were always suspicions about his involvement with female students and/or faculty of past. If his wife has brown hair, what's with the blond on his arm? He was not pleasant to work with--period. The morale was horrible and a happy day when we knew he was moving on. I hope all at PV see their luck!
