He's a little old to be part of the "Moocher Generation."

Or, maybe not... Does this man have no pride at all?

Maybe it is also time for the taxpayer to suggest only hiring those with the necessary degrees for administration. And.....if they choose to further their education, they can do it in their own dime. You would think in today's economic situation, Mr. McDonald would decline taxpayer's funding.......part of his contract or not.
I would like to know

I think that the taxpayers deserve to know this story!

Well, I know a former Ti teacher--and an excellent teacher at that--who "left" Ti because her tenure was threatened by the district.
Why? Because she would not pass a student who didn't deserve to pass. A girl who goofed off all year long, and yet, wanted the credit to graduate. She had the "right last name," and so the district wanted her given a passing grade without earning it.
What is the end of that story? The teacher left Ti and left teaching. Sad.(But not before she and the taxpayers all paid for lawyers. Another taxpayer-funded fiasco that I bet very, very few taxpayers know about.)
P.S. I can tell you another story about a current teacher who cheated another state out of out-of-state tuition because her parents called some friends and asked them to fake residency for her. Should I tell you who that current teacher is?(And who her parents are???)

Are the taxpayers still paying for the superintendent's education?

It would benefit the tax payers of this town to have the state come in and do an audit. Let's start there in the business office -follow the money hold people responsible.

NYS Office of State: Comptroller http://wwe1.osc.state.ny.us/auditsearch/audit...

Looks like TCSD is one of only 4 school districts in Essex County that haven't been recently audited by the Office of State Comptroller.

Don't know about the rest of you, but I'm kinda liking the odds of an audit in the near future. ;)

You don't suppose that a school district can quietly ask for an audit...delay?

LINE ITEM--the public should have the right to vote on issues like paying for the superintendent's education SEPARATELY from other items that directly benefit our students. It's a very simple process.

Honestly, I don't know how long this has been going on; frankly, I no longer trust the Board.
