A good guy who wouldn't put up with the school board anymore and be their puppet. What a loss!

A voluminous article was written about his tenure but not one hint about why he moved to a smaller (about 2600 students) school district.

The MASD President owes the public an explanation and why she did not try to out bid Mt. Pleasant or resolve the issues that troubled the superintendent?

I am a rather suspicious person, and I am awaiting the Paul Harvey saga, AND NOW THE REST OF THE STORY.

I suspect several things unless the MASD President crafts a believable and truthful explanation for his covert and abrupt move. I do not want to go there with speculation until the Board President does her job that we elected her for -- leadership and transparency.

Dr. Brinkos left in a hurry also and I heard he accepted a lesser compensation package.

Up to now, these events do not pass the sniff test.

Agreed!

After a quick check online, it appears the super is receiving less money at his new job. Something is amiss. What is he running from? Or was Humpty Dumpty pushed? Hope one of our super-sleuths does reveal the truth.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the state sniffing around the district. Hmmm, did the super tell his new employers about that problem?

Two down one to go.

Old man Holtzman was free of charge.

We have to first assume that this was a simple and opportune time to make a career move to a district that is perceived to have more interest by parents and students and potential for educational growth and improvement and professional satisfaction.

As time move on, we are sure that more dots will surface, they always do, and the situation could become more into focus. So far they get the stealth award for the year.a

One thing that hangs out there in my mind, is the ability of the Brewster controlled media and MASD administration and MASD board to keep the Mrs. D pending settlement under the radar.

Some ugly and career damaging information could inadvertently spin out if this is not skillfully processed. May be he did not want to be in the path and unjustifiable collateral harm. This is just a wild speculation and IMO.

There are many more latent speculative issues but this one has been haunting me.

Ms. D appears to finally have the drivers seat after years of hanging on by her finger nails and be dragged through the mud holding on to the bumper, although she was found innocent like my friend Mr. Shelly.

We wish the super the best at Mt. Pleasant SD.

You people are so pathetic. He was tired of working in a ghetto school district. Not hard to figure out. No conspiracy.

But why would one leave when their football team is 6-0?

I am insulted that you called our MASD a ghetto district. With the 43% truancy, we have the best actual teacher to student ratio in the Country. The remaining 57% get undivided instruction and attention.

Take your rise colored glasses off. He is not an angel. He is part of the problem when he does not stand up to protect students AND BREAKS THE LAW because he doesn't do his job!!!

By the way I know for a fact it is not a conspiracy. It has a lot to do with changes being made in the district.

You people are idiots!!! What the hell would the board president have to do with the superintendent leaving for less money?? Doesn't pass the smell test?? I would say he never worked so hard in his life and never saw any progress. There is very little parent involvement or support here. You people try to find a conspiracy in everything!!! No wonder he wanted to get the hell out of here!

By the way Mike Brinkos left while Donato, Spando & Brown were still on the board. They controlled Halazynski's, Kondrosky's and Chiaverini's votes. Mike saw the writing on the wall. Donato, Spando, Brown,and Chiaverini have been voted out.
