Why were parents signing petitions
when they had no facts?
They only had misleading Greenwich Time
headlines and news stories.
It is hard for a reasonable person to believe
that some parents could think that a principal
would be suspended over cups of ice cream.
The The Allegations Against Principal D'Amico Were "Serious"
School Leader Apologizes For Lies And Other "Mistakes"
"He did something wrong," Hamden lawyer John Gesmonde said.
Suspended principal apologizes
During a meeting attended by D'Amico, Sternberg and lawyers from both sides, the principal acknowledged making a mistake when he told his supervisor, the deputy superintendent, that a section of the student handbook barring parents...
....His mistake was in misleading his superiors about when that section was added to the handbook, though he later corrected himself, Gesmonde said.
"There is no justification for that except for the fact that we have all embellished or lied about things that may or may not have been significant," he said.
Carbino said he questioned whether D'Amico was truly sorry for his actions or sorry that he was caught because time stamps on the document that D'Amico changed showed when he made the revisions.
"In covering his tracks is where he got caught," Carbino said...
If this is his first offense, he will probably see him back at Glenville School. If there are more issues that are not public knowledge, he probably won't be back.
But should Principal D'Amico be allowed back?
Just what is the situation at Glenville School?
Principal D'Amico's departure could give another principal a chance to fix Glenville School's poor test scores.
Why aren't parents in front of Glenville School protesting the poor test scores at Glenville School.
Doesn't low test scores bother the parents of Glenville parents?
Maybe parents should be signing a petition demanding that steps are taken to reverse the low test scores.
The facts are the facts.
The downward slide of some of these test scores came when Principal D'Amico came to the school.
These parents need to get their children a change so they can get the education they need.
Do the Glenville parents want an ethically challenged principal or a first rate education for their children?
If Principal D'Amico returns to Glenville School and test scores don't improve and these poor children struggle at the Middle School and the High School, who will be at fault?
The new Principal at Hamilton Avenue School has dramatically improved test scores while her students were crammed in contaminated modular trailers with no computer lab or adequate library.
Maybe, Glenville parents should ask themselves....
Would Hamilton Avenue parents accept the an ethically challenged principal that delivers declining test scores year after year?
And There has been way too much of a focus on a very selfish Principal with no moral principals.
How incredibly divisive Principal D'Amico lack of moral values has been for the Glenville School community.
Principal D'Amico devious behavior has caused parents to feud with other parents over whose "side" they are on.
"Well, I hate you, because you want to keep the liar!!!!"
"You are an ignorant fool, we love our liar!!!!!
"Well shame on your liar!!!!!!"
The madness won't end until parents start loving test results and not some guy who has shown that he is willing to lie and change documents.
This ia about an insecure man with a huge ego that lied and manipulated public documents in a vain attempt to prove that he is right.
Everyday when this guy showed up at Glenville School in that oversized Hummer, he showed every parent in school what was important to him.
Principal D'Amico was on a huge power trip and that power trip brought him down and divided a school community.
Only a principal on a huge power trip would lie and change documents just to prove that he is right.
Do you really think that a principal on such a power trip will listen to administrators, teachers and parents.
No wonder the poor little children at Glenville school are struggling with low test scores and getting left behind.
No wonder, the school parents are at each others throats in a bitter and hate filled fight.
If the ethically challenged Principal D'Amico returns to Glenville School things will not get better. The School community will not come together and the children's test scores will not get better.
