"Unknown" and "Kitty," perhaps you both should think before you speak. Sounds like there is some truth to the stories the Salamanca School staff is "spreading." Sounds like you might work there as well, how else would you know about The "Goodyear" situation? Or the "Collins" situation? Hmmmm....very interesting!....and re-read the posts...I am not the one that said he was showing porn....but obviously...something happened...or they wouldn't have taken his computer. YOU confirmed that!

I'm not sure what "incident" happened and I don't really care. My son has her this year and I have to say I have received more communication than I ever have with my others that came through the middle school. I think she's been a huge asset to the middle school.

Mr. Crist is not different than he ever was. It's just a shame to ruin his good name and career for nothing.

First of all, I am not employed at Seneca School...second of all I never confirmed anything...My child also had Mrs. Goodyear and she's a terrific teacher and nice person as well.

What a disservice your community has done. How dare those, who must not know Mr Crist, impugn his character in any way. I have the privilige of knowing Chuck and Patti over 35 years and I will never accept any of this rumor-mongering and comment-- that borders on the ridiculous-- about this man-- that I would have loved to have been my son. I have 4 daughters that have known Chuck since they were babies--and are all now in their 40's--who have the ultimate respect for him, as well. There is no doubt in my mind whatsoever that his name and reputation will be exonerated. The shabby treatment of him should, hopefully, not go unpunished.

I 2nd everything said by Mr. Wilde...I have no doubt that Chuck will come out of this fine.

I sincerly hope that someone on the school board takes a broad look at this issue...and has the guts to invetigate fully.

It appears this is being driven by Doug Hay...
- Would like to better understand Doug's credentials if anyone has the info.
- appears doug is new (and unproven) administrator without teaching or management experience?
- Does Mr. Hay have any experience and/or had problems managing an experienced team in the past?
- Has Chuck challanged him on any professional issues?
- If so, how has Doug responded to the being challanged?

Chuck is an experienced, strong, and charamatic leader with strong opinions that i am sure are in the best interest of his students...exactly what the community and school board should want in a principal.

What is the real issue? It is the school boards duty to make sure they investigate all of the potential issues surronding this.

The handling of this issue to date is ridiculous.

One could've said the same thing about Mr. Morton, three (?) years ago. Didn't stop Bob Crandall, though. And the fact that he - Bob-O - was voted to the board, again, says that the community either doesn't remember or doesn't care. Or maybe the community finds dragging hard-working, dedicated people and their families through the mud entertaining.

Trust me on this: Bob no longer likes Mr. Crist, for whatever reason. He could put an immediate stop to this BS, any time he wanted. The fact that he hasn't says quite a bit.

for those accusing others of rumor spreading: isn't that waht the parents and community said about Mr. Dupont? Kids were telling parents they were shown porn on the schools computers and nobody would listen because he was a well respected member of the community. How was he able to show the boys porn but Mr. Crist supposedly not able to access it? C'mon. There's got to be more to this story.

To any school board members monitoring or commenting on this site, wake up and smell the coffee!!! Doug Hay and Bob Crandall are obviously in bed together. For reasons unknown, they are out to get Chuck Crist. His good name and reputation will be restored and then I hope he sues the hell out of them. Both Hay and Crandall will get exactly what they deserve in the end.

I have been keeping up to date with the 'drama' in my good ol' hometown from this site. I am very glad I can read up because you cannot count on the good ol' Salamanca Press.

What is going on with Chuck Crist? Any new updates?

I know from first hand experience of a dirty deal that Chuck Crist pulled off afew years ago. After meeting with him I decided that he had covered his tracks and it would be embarrassing to the students concerned. He is not the good person you think he is.

What is your source. I don't believe this for a moment. Before you say something like this you better make sure of this it is true. I would hate to see you get involved in this.

Perhaps you should be telling school staff to stop telling people this stuff. I was only saying that is wha STAFF and PERSONNELL are telling people.
So, get off your high horse and get a life.
I know many of the staff there and they are very upset with this whole witch hunt. If there are staff saying this than they to better be looking over their shoulder for this type of untruth could backfire when the will need to go to court to support their comments. From what I have been told by some of the staff it is a superintendent that doesn't know education and this is a vengeance against Mr. Crist for saying what he beleives is right for the staff and students at Salamanca School District. This has been going on for a couple of years. This also deals with coaching staff changes.

What coaching staff changes?

Buffalo, NY

#98 Dec 1, 2009
Then the staff needs to step forward and vote NO CONFIDENCE. i am sure many parents also feel this way. Why hasn't this been done yet? The school board is so corrupt, that is why. Can we, as citizens and taxpayers, get rid of the school board, get a new board, and the superintendent? There is no confidence in EITHER Doug Hay or the school board. What can be done? These people were voted in and are not acting in the best interest of the students.

You ask what changes????? Courtney Valent for one. Chuck supported her when the "grim reapers" came after her. He was told in no uncertain terms to butt-out or else. This is one of the things that created friction between Hay and Crist. That is just one coaching situation. Of course why would anyone take Mr. Crist's opinion on a coach into consideration. His athletic and coaching knowledge are really not remarkable. All he has done is play basketball for Penn State and then was a pro football "walk on" after college, playing for the N.Y. Giants, New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49'ers. I'm certain Bob and Doug know much more about coaches and athletics than Mr. Crist.

who cares if he played, or whatever, for those teams. Was he any good? And really, if he had any case wouldn't he already be approaching lawyers and have a lawsuit? YOu coming here and trying to shut people up isn't any better than what your'e accusing Mr. Hays of doing.
