1/31/08 STERNBERG IS FIGHTING TOOTH AND NAIL TO KEEP KIDS OUT OF HAM AVE: Since health and safety didn't fly - the new "fear" NCLB


Betty Sternberg Wants To Keep Disadvantaged Hamilton Avenue Children Will Have To Stay In Leaking Modular Classrooms That Are Breeding Grounds For Mold


The Contractors Warned Betty Sternberg And Principal Rau About The Leeks Last September And The Greenwich Board Of Education Has Not Been Able To Stop The Leaks For Six Months


If These Leaks Were In A Small Child's Bedroom A Parent Would Put And End To Them.


Yet The Failed Greenwich Board Of Education Turns A Blind Eye To Failed School Administrators Like Susan Wallerstien Who Takes Home A Big Fat Taxpayer Paycheck For Putting Small Children In Wet Modular Classrooms.


Why Doesn't Greenwich Time Cub Reporter Colin Gustafson Have The Journalistic Balls To Freedom Of Information Request All Board Of Education Documents, Letters, Photos, Purchase Orders, Reports And Work orders Related The Water Leaks At Hamilton Avenue School.


Two To Three Years Ago Greenwich Board Of Education Employees Covered Up Dangerous Mold By Repeated Replacing Water Soaked Ceiling Tiles.


Now Once Again Greenwich Board Of Education Employees Are Changing Ceiling Tiles Like They Change Their Socks As Clean And Dry Classrooms Sit Empty


After Almost Four Years It Is Time To Open Hamilton Avenue School Even If It Means Susan Wallerstien Has To Get Off Her Rear End And Work Around The Clock With Board Of Education Staff.


BASTA !!!! SUSAN WALLERSTIEN BASTA !!!!!


ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!!!!


Please Read The Following Letter


Ladies and Gentlemen

After reading today's Greenwich Time article it is apparent that the Superintendant and Principal of Hamilton Avenue School are tyring to instill a "new" fear in the parents and community. Since their health and safety reasons for not moving the students into the building until April were blown out of the water, the new tactic is pulling out the No Child Left Behind Act.

What wasn't said in the article is that there is a very definitive process for addressing schools that do not make Annual Yearly Progress.

I have included a link to the State of Connecticut's No Child Left Behind Act Accountability Workbook, Updated Version, Modified 6/23/06

http://www.csde.state.ct.us/public/cedar/nclb/faq/resources/state_accountability_workbook_september_06.pdf
On page 11 of this workbook you will find the following:

"STATE RESPONSE AND STATE ACTIVITIES FOR MEETING NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND REQUIREMENTS.

A school will be identified as in need of improvement if it does not make AYP for two

consecutive years in the same subject on achievement and or participation in reading or

mathematics and the additional academic indicator standard".

By the superintendant's own words in the Greenwich Time article Hamilton Avenue School was given an exemption by the State for last school year (2006-07). The school made appropriate AYP for the school year 2005-06.

Hamilton Avenue School is TWO YEARS away from being cited for failure to meet AYP with anything more severe than a demand for a plan to fix the failure.

So, what happens if Hamilton Avenue School is cited for failing to meet AYP this year? Since this is a Title I school, they will be made to come up with an improvement plan that must be accepted by the State with a clear outline of how they will bring each student's test scores up to proficient. Said improvement plan will be montored at the local and State BOE levels.

Again, please let me point out the true reason for bringing out the No Child Left Behind Act card. Using the superintendant's own words ".... and how school administrators' performances are evaluated".

This is just another attempt to defend an indefensible reason for keeping the Hamilton Avenue School children in the moldy, leaking modulars.

Since this fear has now been debunked, I eagerly await the next "fear" that is devised. Please share this email with others.


Respectfully,


Laura J. DiBella

IT LOOKS LIKE THE GREENWICH TIME DID NOT

FACT CHECK BETTY STERNBERG'S STATEMENTS

THIS WOULD NOT BE THE FIRST TIME THAT STERNBERG LIED

ALL TOO OFTEN FAILED SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS

MISLEAD THE PRESS IN AN EFFORT TO

DIVIDE AND ISOLATE PARENTS

TRYING TO PROTECT THEIR SMALL CHILDREN

ASK YOURSELF, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE SCHOOL OFFICIALS LIED TO THE SINGLE FAMILY HOMEOWNERS IN THE LAST YEAR ALONE?

1/31/09 EXCLUSIVE: You Wont Read This In The Greenwich Time - End Maybe Near For Madoff "Victim" Fairfield Greenwich (Updated)


Local Greenwich Sources Tell Greenwich Roundup ....

Hedge fund firm Fairfield Greenwich, which lost more than half of its assets to scummier Bernard Madoff, is in the process of or preparing to winding down operations and could shutter its doors by summer.

The fund, which is headed by Greenwich Resident Walter Noel has been rumored to have cut its staff by 30 - 50% Greenwich Roundup has learned and people familiar with the situation have said that some remaining Fairfield Greenwich employees have been told that they may be let go by late July. Generous severance packages are being offered to keep key staff members on board and quite.

Walter "Feeder Fund" Noel lost a who headed the Fairield Sentry Fund "invested" a whopping $7.5 Billion with his chum Bernard Madoff. Fairfield Greenwich Investors have been lead to believe that there was an additional $6,5 Billion left to pay investors back. This might not be entirely accurate.

While Walter "Feeder Fund" Noel has suspended seeking new investors and has said ,"it retains the staff necessary to seek and recover any available Madoff assets."

The formerly high flying Fairfield Greenwich Group had $7.5 Billion out of $14 Billion in assets invested with Walter Noel chum Bernie Madoff through the firms fund of hedge funds, known as Fairfield Sentry.

Walter Noel who long ago suspended investor redemption requests for non-family members and is now apparently working toward selling off the firms surviving assets held in offshore tax havens.

Also wounded by the Madoff scandal is hedge fund firm Tremont Group run by Mass Mutual . The Rye New York fund also lost more than half of its assets ($3.1 Billion) to Madoff. Press reports last week said that Tremont was in the process of shutting down operations.

It's a shame, we finally get what we waited forever for and we still have to fight!!! We (the parents) believed the TCO would be a time for celebration, little did we know……




I don't know ONE parent that believes the CMT is more important than our children, or that a move into a building, dangled in front of us like a carrot for soooo long needs a five week transition, or will effect the ability of our "RESILENTENT" children to successfully complete the CMTs. If the building was ready on the first day of school in Aug. like we were lead to believe, would we have stayed in the modulars for 5 extra weeks, for a ridiculous transition plan? This community has been lied to and ripped apart for too long. All we want is our children in the building that was promised to them years ago.

We will stand together, and let our voices be heard.

FLASHBACK:

Parents Upset at School Renovation Delays - NYTimes.com
Sep 7, 2008

AFTER 3 years of delays, the students of Hamilton Avenue Elementary will finally get to move into their newly renovated school this fall — but that may not happen until the end of October.


A planned $24 million renovation of the school has taken longer than anticipated — an Aug. 15 completion date came and went — and it is also about $6 million over budget.


Students began the school year on Aug. 27 along with others in Greenwich, but they reported to modular classrooms that have been set up at Western Middle School while their school is under construction. School officials had hoped that the Hamilton Avenue School would be granted a temporary certificate of occupancy last week that would have allowed them to move students and teachers into permanent quarters by Columbus Day weekend, but town inspectors turned them down.


Frank Mazza, a volunteer who heads the town Building Committee, which oversees renovations of school facilities under state law, said they didn’t receive the temporary certificate because they are still waiting on an air quality report. There are also a variety of other small unfinished items including, for example, Braille characters on important signs in the building. Mr. Mazza said the electrical inspector also found some electric outlets that were not working on Tuesday.


The many delays in the school’s renovation, which began after mold was discovered in the building in 2003
...

.....In March, mold was also found in the modular classrooms the Hamilton Avenue students were using at Western Middle School. The students were sent home for an entire week, missing classes. Afterward, they were dispersed to other elementary schools in town where they finished the school year.


Parents were so upset they demonstrated at the Board of Education building in downtown Greenwich to voice their frustrations, and board members told them at an emergency meeting they were doing their best to minimize the disruption to their children.These latest delays have them even more upset. Mina Bibeault, a mother of two Hamilton Avenue students, said the Building Committee and the Board of Education have lost all their credibility with her and other parents ...... BLAH .... BLAH ...... BLAH ..... BLAH ...... BLAH ...... BLAH ..... BLAH ..... BLAH ...... BLAH ...... BLAH .....

1/30/09 BRUCE HUNTER AND THE GREENWICH TIME SLEEPS AS HAM AVE PARENTS ORGANIZE: Plan to keep Ham Ave K-5 out of the new building until April

Laura J. DiBella
Subject: Plan to keep Ham Ave K-5 out of the new building until April

Ladies and Gentlemen

As you may be aware, the TCO for the Hamilton Avenue Re-construction project was received today, Friday, January 30th at around 2:30.

A few hours after receipt, the Superintendent, Betty Sternberg, issued a press release, a copy of which is on the Greenwich Public Schools website.

In addition, in today's Friday Folders, the means of communication to parents at Hamilton Avenue School, the principal, Dr. Damaris Rau sent out a letter with an attached Transition Plan for Move to the New Building.

First, I will address the Press Release.

Regarding the factors that must be considered - conditions outlined in the TCO. I have been informed by HAS Building Committee members that there are NO conditions attached to the TCO with respect to the students moving into the building as regards the Town Building Department, issuer of the TCO. When asked by a reporter from the Greenwich Time what conditions were attached to the TCO, Frank Mazza referred said reporter to Dr. Sternberg.

With regard to the BOE, Town Attorney and District Administration needing to review factors - the punch list was shared with the Building Committee and parents that attended the last building committee meeting. Other than the issues with the flue (which have now been corrected), none precluded the students from entering the building. If items on the punch list did, in fact, affect the occupation of the building, the Town Building Department would not have issued the TCO. As to training, the custodians have been attending training sessions for weeks, and per the HASBC, that training is complete.

Moving on, the next issues discussed in the press release are regarding the implentation of health and safety procedures, set up of offices and classrooms, orienting staff and students to the building and making sure that all services and technology work.

Let me address these issues thusly. The principal's Move Plan addresses, among other things, arrival and dismissal procedures, fire drill procedures , lunch procedures, etc. When the HAS students moved to the modulars a parade was organized with a welcome by Western Middle School students. The children did NOT enter the modulars at that time. The only other issue addressed was bus safety as this was the first time for many of these students to take a bus to school. There were no practice drills or procedures. When the HAS students were dispersed throughout the district, other than a parent night, our children did not receive practice drills or procedures. When school starts in August every year, there are no practice drills or procedures for incoming new students prior to the first day of school.

Setting up offices and instructional spaces is not an issue the children have to deal with. The furniture is already in place and has been for quite some time. If there were any issues with the furniture, the district should have already been aware of and remedied them. As to setting up offices, this falls under moving the packed items from the modulars to the new building. It also entails staff setting up their classrooms to make them welcoming for the students and educationally ready. If we can be dispersed to six different schools in one week and have offices and instructional spaces ready to go, if we can find out the day before school that we are moving from six different schools back to the modulars and have offices and instructional spaces ready to go, there is absolutely NO reason to believe that between now and the end of February break, these issues can't be done.

As to orienting students and staff to the new building as per the Press release, this issue will be done for the teachers while they are setting up their rooms prior to students returning to school. The children would then and should then receive the same type of orienting as at the start of school each August.

As to making certain that all building technology and services are fully operational, again, this should have already been done by the district. This building has been sitting for years with these things already in place. I know for fact that the food services equipment has already gone through a function test and, as stated previously, the maintenance people have already been trained.

Now that those particular issues have been outlined for you, please let me tell you the true story behind this devastating delay for moving our children into their new, long awaited building.

It all boils down to the following statement from the press release:

"Additionally, this schedule avoids disruption to the preparation for and administration of the March CMT testing schedule".

The principal and superintendant are attempting to play upon the fears of the parents for the safety of their children to make sure that we remain in the again-leaking modulars where children are exhibiting, again, nosebleeds, headaches and nausea. The CMT test scores do not come out until August. To keep our children in the modulars for a test is, for lack of a more descriptive word, atrocious. It is more important to this district to get good CMT scores than in putting our children in a healthy, safe, neighborhood environment. I ask you to think on this, isn't it safer to assume that being in their neighborhood in a clean, new building will boost the moral of these children so much so that they will be willing and eager to do their very best on these tests? Isn't it more realistic that being in their new, clean, safe building in their home neighborhood will let them know that they are deserving of great scores?

The children that are currently in our Pre-K program, scattered to North Street and Old Greenwich School will be moved into the new building in less than a week. If the building has "conditions" attached to the TCO that prevents our K-5 students from moving in, why don't those "conditions" apply to our littlest students?

One of the reasons given for moving the Pre-K students to the building earlier than the K-5 students is that the cost of busing 60 students to NS and OG school is too expensive. What hasn't been made public is that to move these small children into the new building without the K-5 group is that they must hire a full time on-site administrator, a full time on-site custodian, a full time o-site nurse and an additional cafeteria crew to cook and serve lunch to these children. All this hiring negates any savings that would possibly be realized by cancelling the buses for these children.

I ask you to think on this as well. Why was it that just ONE MONTH ago, the district was preparing, to the point of having the staff and students pack up their rooms, to move to the new building WITHOUT all these "conditions" and concerns for safety and health over an 8 school day, two weekend Christmas break and now they say that they CANNOT move over a 6 school day, two weekend February break? WHY IS THAT? WHAT HAS CHANGED SO VERY MUCH THAT A TWO DAY DIFFERENCE MEANS NOT MOVING UNTIL APRIL???

I ask each of you to make your own decision as to whether or not the superintendent and principal are proposing reasonable and sound issues to keep the children in those decrepit modulars. Are their reasons acceptable enough to basically leave a new building that is ready to receive the students almost completely EMPTY for months?

If you believe, as the parents do, that our children should be in the new building on February 17th, please, please stand with us and demand to be heard. We need your help. Our CHILDREN need your help. I ask you, on behalf of our children, to let the powers that be hear you demand that our children must be in their new school, ready to be taught, ready to learn on Tuesday, February17th.

1/30/09 HAMILTON AVENUE PARENTS ARE MAD AS HELL AND THEY ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE

Again, our children our sacrificed for the sake of a test. Now the school is ready and we have a very convenient 5 week plan until we can move. This ensures "no disruption of the CMT's.". Well, thank God for that! Our children can stay in the crowded, leaking, soon to be mold filled again modulars.

Tell me, district wide, do you bring the children in before school starts to show them the lunchroom, assign them their lunchtime seat, and do a test fire drill? Do we show them the art and music room? These are all things that can be done in a single morning. Didn't our teachers' union vote that they WANT to move as soon as possible, meaning Feb. break? If there are "conditions" to the
TCO, why risk our littlest students? Bottom line , this is the only truth in the press release about why we are not moving ."Additionally, this schedule avoids disruption to the preparation for and administration of the March CMT testing schedule."
Funny, before any 5 week plan was developed , we were constantly told that a move in Feb was not possible because it would disrupt the
CMT's and result in (dare I say it), lower test scores.

Enough! We keep hearing that our children are resilient , let them prove it now.
Move us over Feb. break. We have two full weeks now, we relocated to 6 locations in a week, this should be a piece of cake.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I ask that you remove my address form your mailing list. I view your blog on my own on a regular basis, and would appreciate NOT receiving any further independent messages from your site at this time. My thanks for honoring this request.

COMMENT:

Greenwich Roundup was seeking any thoughts or comments you might have about those poor little children trying to learn in classrooms that are leaking water.

we were especially interested in your thoughts, because of your involvement with the Greenwich School System, and were hoping to get your thoughts because there was a rumor that the Greenwich Building Department was going to issue a last minute Temporary certicate of occupancy at the close of bussiness on a Friday.

What do you think of the current conditions at the Hamilton Avenue School modulars?

Should the Hamilton Avenue children be forced to endure them for another two or three months?

Should failed Greenwich School Administrator Susan Wallerstien be fired?

Please let us know what you think?

Dear Members of the Board, Mr. Tesei, Dr. Sternberg, and Dr. Rau

The attached News Release is completely unacceptable not only to me, but to many, many parents of students at Hamilton Avenue School.

This is a not-so-well veiled attempt to make sure we stay put in those again-leaking modulars so that the CMT's can be taken without imagined disruption to the process. Keeping these children in those decrepit modulars where they are experiencing, again, nosebleeds, headaches, and nausea is a travesty.

This building is ready. I do not for one moment believe that there are "conditions" to the TCO. This is an underhanded way to keep us where YOU want us, not where we want to be.

To claim that it is with the health and safety of the children in mind that this 5 week plan of Dr. Rau's is feasible is absurd. It is Dr. Rau's obvious intent to justify her ridiculously high salary by forcing us to stay in this building with the hopes that the CMT scores will go up. Since the scores don't come out until August, this doesn't wash.


Get us in there NOW!! Please be advised that I WILL be contacting the press regarding this disgusting show of disregard for our children.

GREENWICH POST

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE Posted 4:32 p.m., Friday, Jan. 30, 2009

Written by Ken Borsuk, Staff Reporter kborsuk@greenwich-post.com

Despite having a temporary certificate of occupancy (TCO) in hand, Hamilton Avenue School students will likely not be in their new building until spring.
The Greenwich Public Schools released a statement Friday afternoon saying the move “is expected” to take place over the spring break scheduled for April 6 to 10. Several reasons were cited for the wait, including conditions placed on the TCO and that moving in April would insure “adequate time” to implement health and safety procedures, set up offices and classrooms, get students oriented to the new building and make sure that all the systems are fully operational.....
But The Real Unanswered Question In Ken Borsuk's Article Is Will Glenville Parents Put Thier Children In Classrooms With Water Leaks And Potential Mold Problems. Glenville Parents Had Better Sit In On The Next Hamilton Avenue PTA Meeting.....

.....The move is expected to be discussed Tuesday night at the Hamilton Avenue School PTA meeting, which is set for 7 p.m. in the modulars.
In her statement Ms. Sternberg also addressed the future for Glenville School students, who have been dispersed throughout the district while renovation is underway of their building.

"But that's usually done in a day or sometimes a week at the beginning of the school year. ... Now they can't get things together when they have two weeks?"

Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Is Too Busy Attacking A Critic To Assign A Reporter To Investigate Parents Complaints That Greenwich's Most Disadvantage Children Must Try To Learn In Modular Classrooms That Violate The Building Codes Of The State Of Connecticut.



The Last Time That Anyone In Town Remembers A Greenwich Time Editor Doing An Investigative Report Was When Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Joe Pisani admitted that the Greenwich Time did a poor job of covering the Martha Moxley Murder on on October. 30, 1975.

Most Everyone in town remembers that in the early eighties the Greenwich Time attempted to revive it's poor image by hiring investigative journalist Len Levitt to look into the unsolved murder case.

Levitt's story was based on more than 100 interviews and 400 pages of police documents turned over on the order of the state's Freedom of Information Commission, remained unpublished for nearly a decade.

The story was finally published over several pages in 1991.When Mr. Levitt appeared in an Editor & Publisher cover story bashing the newspapers for the long delay in publishing his work, Another Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Editor Joe Pisani Refused To Talk To Mr. Levitt Ever Again .



If Greenwich School Business Manager Susan Wallerstien Had A Leak In Her Office It Would Be Fixed With In 24 Hours, But If A Poor Child In A Classroom Trailer Has Water Pouring Into The Classroom No One At The Greenwich Time Cares.

Why Does Hearst Newspaper's President Steven Swartz Allow Bruce Hunter To Ignore The Poorest And Weakest Families Of Greenwich Society.



The Greenwich Time Has An Extremely Low Subscription Rate In Byram, Because Parental Complaints About The Hamilton Modulars, While Regurgitating School Press Releases And Listing Them As Local News On The Greenwich Time Web Site.



And Before Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Gets His Panties All In A Bunch Again. I Hope Some Will Tell Him That His Regurgitating Press Releases From School Groups Is Not An Article That Has Copyright Protection.
Greenwich Roundup Saw These Same School Press Releases On The Cablevion's Greenwich Educational Access Channel.



Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Has To Understand That The Truth Sometimes Hurts. The Facts Are That Hunter Does Not Have The Journalistic Balls To Report On What Is Really Happening In Those Modular Classrooms.



Bruce Hunter Is Clearly The Wrong Man At The Wrong Time To Lead The Greenwich Time As It Transitions Into The Digital Age
PLEASE ALSO SEE:
PLEASE SEE THE HAMILTON AVENUE NEWS STORY THAT THE HEARST NEWSPAPERS HAS FAILED TO COVER:

FOR THE RECORD:

Greenwich Roundup was the only news organization that reported about the water once again leaking at Hamilton Avenue School. Clueless Hearst Newspaper Editors Don Harrison (Greenwich Citizen) And Jim Zebora (Greenwich Time), as well as, the Greenwich Post editor have ignored HAS parents complaints that the modular are once again leaking.

PLEASE SEE:

THE MODULARS ARE HAVING WATER AND ELECTRICAL PROBLEMSFIRE ALARM HAS BEEN SET OFF DURING THE SCHOOL DAY!!!!

....The Hamilton Avenue School Principal is so self absorbed and concerned with her image and her career as an administrator, she has lost perspective. God help the children of Hamilton Avenue School as they are shoved in a school that is not up to code.

Where is Ken West the building maintenance supervisor?How is this trailer park permitted to stay open?If this were a private home it would be condemned.

Go Back To Your Wet And Unsafe Modular Classrooms!!!!.....Principal Damaris Rau sounds like an idiot. She should not be in charge of one child, never mind a school full of kids....
Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter knows that before anyone goes to the weekly newspapers or the bloggers with a story they go to the "Yellowch Time" first.

The "Yellowich Time" gets first shot at virtually every news story in town and they often bungle thier chance.

When Hamilton Avenue mothers went to Jim Zebora's crew complaining that the modular classrooms were leaking they were REPEATEDLY ignored Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Joe Pisani.

When those same Hamilton Avenue Mothers came to Greenwich Roundup we started publishing posts like this in February until Betty Sternberg was forced to shut down the modulars in March.

Please See:

There was not one previous article in the Greenwich Time

When Glenville Parents came to Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Jim Zebora And His Failed Reporting Crew with pictures and stories about the conditions inside thier school the Zorba crew could not be bothered with such trivial matters.

Please See:

When the "New And Improved" Hamilton Avenue Modulars were leaking AGAIN, the Ex-Greenwich Time Zebora And His Failed Reporting Crew once again could not be bothered.

Please See:

When a Greenwich parent got pictures of three heavily damaged classrooms in the "NEW" 30 Million Dollar Ham Ave School the Ex-Greenwich Time Editor Jim Zebora Crew was not interested and still has not fully reported whats going on inside that building.

Please See:

Like It Or Not The Greenwich Time Editors Are Going To Have To Get Used To The Fact That Greenwich Roundup Is A Bit Edgy And Somewhat Rude When Greenwich Roundup Publishes A Post Like......

But isn't rude for Colin Gustafson to put up an August headline that insults the intelegence of every taxpayer in Greenwich?

By Colin Gustafson
August 08, 2008

A variety of unresolved facilities issues - most of them easy to fix - are preventing the Hamilton Avenue School from receiving sign-offs from inspectors necessary for students to return to the building, the school board told parents last night.

Broken glass needs to be repaired, as well as cracks in some of the floor-level surfaces that must be patched. .... Blah ..... Blah ...... blah ..... Blah ..... Blah ..... Ham Ave Is Opening On Time !!!!!!!
Thin Skinned Greenwich Time Managing Editor Bruce Hunter Is Ignoring The Parents Of Hamilton Avenue School, Just Like Pisani, Warner And Zebora.
