Grant, I rarely post hearsay unless it comes from close sources so you can try to discredit me. People know that I stand on integrity and you can try to discredit me but when my usual source is the meetings and information from right to know requests, well, discrediting facts is hard to do. I'm really not insulted Grant, honestly, I really don't care if you agree or disagree, I don't care if you like me but when our district continues to slide backwards instead of forwards and the only ones who are affected by these cuts are those directly related to educating our kids or the education, we have problems. You don't want to have a negative conversation or debate about the sad state our district its in that is fine, ignore the problem. The only ones who are trying to do more with less are the educators, I don't have a single negative thing to say about them, I applaud them. It is the director level, central office, and the board that my problem is with.

Gee Warrendragon sounds as if we have insulted someone. Saveourschools once again you took second party information "several people had told you" as fact. I can assure you it is as false as false gets. Of course that's irrelevant. The bigger concern is you are unaware of facts related to your posts and will remain so. Ethics and entitlement are two different things.

I would love to continue this conversation but I refuse to engage in the sad state of negativity toward educators and the District.

Warren grant and dragon, when I am misinformed our lacking knowledge, I am first to admit. Several people had told me she was applying and yes, people do often apply for more than one so it is possible that she was looking at all possibilities. Then I left the state, I had very cell service. I'm glad to come back this evening to the news that she is headed to Harborcreek. Feeling entitled to something someone else receives is not fighting for what is right and being a driving force in some of the current actions of the district that will do more harm than good for students is not fighting for what is right. At the end of the day, the students will not be who she is fighting for. If you have a problem with me, I welcome you to approach me with your issues.

Pedro, I think you and I are probably hoping for the same person.....

It sounds like the current "she" will not be in the running for the Super job. She was willing to fill in for a bit, but will be happy to slide back into her administrative role.

And the other "she" - the one who took the district to court - has reportedly been hired as the new Super in an Erie County district. (I'm hearing it is Harborcreek, but can't confirm yet.)

Don't be surprised if the hire is local. I think the board has someone currently in the district in mind, a short-term hire who won't stir up the waters for a couple years while the "four high schools" building plan moves along far enough that it can't be changed or stopped. He (not a "she") will serve for a couple years then head off into retirement.

saveourschools you are clueless, you always pretend to be in the know but all you really are is a windbag who is usually wrong.....the district would be lucky if "she" did apply....wouldn't it be nice to have someone running the show who is willing to stand up for what is right the way "she" did...won't be long and "she" will be running the show in another district and once again the WCSD will have missed an opportunity to hire a LOCAL person with a vested interest

Saveourschools - you always seem to have information. Unfortunately, once again, you are misinformed. "She" hasn't applied for the Superintendent position.

No dissent on not going after the former superintendent for reimbursement of travel expenses not, according to reports, having nothing to do with re-location. We certainly don't need the local Players Club to perform a version of the Lemmings marching to the sea because we appear to be able to view it regularly on Mondays.

What we have is a board that has a couple members who came on with the sole issue of maintaining the current schools and now seem to be disinterested bystanders, at least a third of the members who are former education staff/board members within the district who have their own vested interest to protect or their own axes to grind and a couple others that seem to just go along with the flow accepting whatever the acting superintendent, I mean Board President tells them to do. I mean really, no board member dissents to not leveling with the Public on the real reason Brandon "family man" Hufnagel left, leaving it to a few intrepid citizens and the local Paper to provide the truth. No dissent on $100,000 in bonuses while what the District provides to its students crumbles? No dissent to adding Administrative staff while going for a third round of educational cuts? Cont.

I wonder if any of the Board members want to stick around to answer questions like "Why are you cutting an additional 9 teaching positions while adding more staff to Central Office?" or “How can you justify making major cuts in a successful Middle School program while at the same providing $100,000 in bonuses to the already highest paid staff in the District?" or "Why are upgrades of old computer equipment used by students part of this proposed budget which occurs after senior administrators were given the newest of computer technology?”

If the WTO is going to continue to push school district issues to the top of every news day, at least give us some content! Why doesn't a reported interview anyone?? Do oficials, current and former refuse to comment?? Is so, say so. My fear is the WTO is only printing what they are fed rather than gathering news. Wouldn't want to tick anyone off by asking pesky questions. Corrupt Mayberry indeed. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

The WTO is getting some mileage from this headline. It's like deja-vu all over again.
