What is going on at Massena Central?

Mar 15, 2012 Full story: North Country Now 46

What on Earth is going on with the Massena school district and its leaders? You know, I've been watching the reporting as well as the rumors going on over this past year or so, not really paying all too close attention, or taking any sides.

It's called Cynthia Yager who claims she has been bullyied. That is the biggest joke of all and the people in this town actually believe her and her bff Toni Fiacco Price's bs. How ironic. Why don't you ask the 9 people that have left the MCS Business Office because of Cynthia Yager's "bullying" and inappropriate behaviors. Some have left and took different jobs with lower pay instead of working with her! HER bullying has been going on for years! Even the Secretaries that work at the elementary schools declined a raise in pay so that they were not be classed with the secretaries at the Business Office because they did not want to be moved there and have to work with Cynthia Yager. People who actually believe her should seriously look further into the truth.

Well, all I know is she has worked for the district for MANY years and not once did I ever hear a bad word about her. Roger has been Superintendent for approximately 3-4 years and the district has gone to hell. I have lived in this town well over 40 years and I have NEVER seen such a debacle.

Is "anyone" concerned about OUR tax dollars being used to pay for Cynthia's lawyers for bs complaints. You all really have NO clue what Cynthia Yager is really like. The reason you have not heard her complain before this is because SHE was allowed to "bully" and get away with whatever she wanted when Doug Huntley was around. Finally she is expected to treat people with respect and SHE is retaliating. Most of you have NO clue what she is really like and what is really going on. Look into the FACTS before judging.

When all the tape recordings are made public just maybe your viewpoint will be changed.... I hear every phone call and every meeting of administrative staff have been taped and will be used to prove the charges... Should be interesting...

I would love to see a comparison between how much Clough has spent on attorneys as compared to Cynthia. Talk about BS. Not even close.

It would just be a wild guess, but I do have to figure that "The Truth For a Change" is one of Roger's "lieutenants"!! If it had been so terrible, those being bullied should have spoken up!! There is no question that the shunning (at a minimum) of Cyndi has created a hostile work environment! I dare say it has been all she has claimed....otherwise she would not say so! Anything of a false nature would totally negate her position!!! That's a risk that's not worth taking. When people stand up to bullies, the bully's friends are so defensive!!! This is one of those situations!

If all parties knew they were being recorded is one thing, If they did not and one of the parties had a reasonable assumption the calls were private, the tapes will not be able to be used as evidence. There are federal privacy laws that will protect this. Parties have to tell you up front that your conversation may be recorded. If they were recorded illegally, a judge may go as far as to order the recordings to be destroyed.

A phone call between two people in nys can be recorded without consent- The ones in the meretings with other people ( third party) you are right about..

The tapes may not win a lawsuit but if they are played to an audience then the truth is in the tapes. I personally don't care about the lawsuit. I want the truth.

I am not a lawyer so I don't know all of the laws. I do know you can tape your conversations from your private home or cell phone with the 1 party consent law. I am not sure about tapping business phones without prior permission. If the calls were recorded at work and without permission, that could open a new can of worms for her.

her lawyer would have advised her not to bring up the taped phone calls if he thought it would be a detriment to her case everyone needs to use some common sense and it is probably the school district taping the calls because of bomb threats and what not so therfore she could use them her lawyer also would have advised her that she didn't have a case if SHE DIDN'T HAVE A CASE her lawyer took on the case because he/she feels there is enough evidence to proceed and that is the common sense of the matter

The lawyers gets paid no matter if he/she wins or loses. Times are tough all over. I think this whole thing is a little ridiculous and have followed it here since it started and what is in print. One of their biggest complaints was how much money was spent on legal advice. What is this law suit going to do? It very well could double or triple the amount spent on legal advice. The taxpayers get to foot the bill. She didn't call an ambulance chasing lawyer for a slip and fall case. This one could go on for years. That can add up to 100's of hours. To me, it's more of a "Misery Loves Company" scenario. All of this he said, she said stuff. Nothing more than adults acting like children.
