If that's true you're a bigger assholl than you've been letting on. With a half a brain you must know our track record. Although districts are only allowed to have so much in reserve our system from Fusco on up has always had a bit extra up their sleeve. We've had money when no one else has. If we hadn't merged we won't have made cuts this year. At this time, although not exactly on paper, our reserves are to the max.
Bank on it.
I don't believe 'Up our sleeve' would be considered "Generally Accepted Accounting Practices". It's nice to know the numbers in the school budget I voted for were apparently just smoke and mirrors. Thanks.

Our tax dollars + building ratio aid + rent from Remington = More than covers the 2mill increase, leaving 4.5mill to pay over the top on debt or whatever.

In a budget you always figure on the high side (accepted accounting practice).

And if you check, CVCSD placed $325k into our reserve fund.

Ain't that a bitch?

Interesting, but at one of the very first merger meetings (4 school merger), I recall the consults telling us, the concerned parents,that if you had a (for example) first grader in the Herkimer, Mohawk, Ilion or Frankfort zone that you could be assured that you child would be receiving the same education, no matter where they were attending school. I knew at that time that the situation as described by the consultants was not possible and I know for a fact it is not happening now. Unfortunately, the teachers whom you hoped would be putting their egos on the backburner and working for the common good of the children they are educating, is simply not happening to the extent expected and hoped for.

So in the first 2wks of school all elementary teachers at one school are not following the expected curriculum.

Knowing anything like this for a fact, means you must be the administrator doing the teacher evaluations.

. All teachers in NYS have to follow the Common Core Curriculum. Some schools are following the NYS prepared "Modules" for ELA & Math, and some are choosing to use existing programs/textbook series' etc. and supplementing to meet the expectation(s) of the Common Core. There are no prepared programs for subjects such as Middle School Science, for example. So I'm wondering how you are so sure that teachers at the elementary school you are referencing are not teaching the expected curriculum? And I'm totally confused to how that relates to being an Administrator responsible for doing observations. When a Teacher turns in their plans explaining the lesson observed, they very clearly list which Common Core Standards were covered in the lesson. I don't think you really have any idea what you're trying to complain about.

Hey Tiger, I'm responding to "Insider" who is full of shht.

I'm asking how anyone can say, after only 2wks of school, teachers are not doing what's expected.

I'm saying, to know anything like that for a fact, must means you're the administrator in charge of doing teacher evaluations.

ILION, N.Y.—
Keeping school bus stops clear of snow will be an additional challenge this winter, Ilion Department of Public Works Superintendent Jack Sterling told the village board last week.

“We had a hard enough time doing it with 11 stops, let alone 44,” he said, adding crews will not be able to clear all of the areas with the sidewalk plow. He also expressed concern about manpower issues and overtime.

Mayor John Stephens said village residents are responsible for their own sidewalks and if they are not clearing them the codes department and police will have to cite them for codes violations.

According to village codes, residents must clear their sidewalks within 24 hours after a storm, Sterling said, adding,“The codes have got to be enforced.”

Sterling also had safety concerns about the stops at the bottom of some hills in the village, noting that if a plow skidded coming down a hill, there could be a child or a bus in its path. He said he would like to see those stops moved away from the intersections.

Trustee Robert Wellington said some parents are driving their children to the bus stops. On a rainy day at one stop, two children were standing at the stop and nine vehicles were parked nearby as parents waited with their children in the car, he said. Trustee Joanne Moore added it could be difficult for an emergency vehicle to get through.

Stephens asked Sterling to discuss his concerns with Central Valley School Superintendent Cosimo Tangorra.

“This is new,” said Stephens of the transportation changes brought about by the newly merged school district.“It’s brand new to everybody.”

Big fkin deal, so they need to adjust. Have Johnny Stephens stop paying ridiculous money and accepting pay vouchers from our village attorney. Problem solved. Ck into that.

Have they figured global warming into the equation?
