From 1980 to 1984, he served as Principal for John Jay Junior High School, and then as Assistant Superintendent for KLSD for sixteen years (1984-1999) before becoming Superintendent for the District in 1999. Dr. Lichtenfeld has a track record of success in improving achievement for students, providing professional development for staff, mplementing new programs designed to improve outcomes, managing large-scale facility projects, and planning for long-term improvement in the schools

Dr. Lichtenfeld received his B.A. from New York University, New York, NY; and his Masters in
Education, Masters in Educational Administration and his Doctorate of Education from Columbia
University Teachers College in New York City, NY

01/29/10 In this week's Greenwich Post

Covering the news of Greenwich, Connecticut

Have you seen the 'Post' yet?

The Greenwich Post came out yesterday. Have you seen what’s inside? Here are a few of the news items and features in this week’s issue. The Post is available on newsstands today, and online and by mail to subscribers.


• Representative Town Meeting Moderator Thomas Byrne has fired off a five-page memo in response to suggestions that the procedures he followed in voting for moderator pro tempore at last week’s RTM meeting might have been less than proper.

• Yankee manager Joe Girardi and general manager Brian Cashman brought the World Series trophy to Convent of the Sacred Heart on Tuesday to give invited staff, students and families a closer look.

• The Greenwich Post has launched a new photo series highlighting an adoptable dog from one of the town’s shelters. This week, meet Tyke, an affectionate five-year-old pit bull terrier.

• The case of a Greenwich man accused of murdering his daughter and attempting to commit suicide has been pushed back as the Superior Court judge says he wants to deal with the issue of probable cause first.

• Teens at Greenwich High School are shedding light on teen dating violence as the community reports that about 13% of teens in Connecticut report abuse.

• After problems with mold at the modulars during Hamilton Avenue School construction, a sect of parents who now have children at Western Middle School say they are displeased with the choice of a remediation company to clean up mold at Western.

• The plans for a major renovation to Nathaniel Witherell will head to the Planning and Zoning Commission for review now that the Board of Selectman have granted the project municipal improvement status.

• First Selectman Peter Tesei says this year’s budget for captail projects will require the town to make some “hard choices” as costs for proposed projects exceed the money available. However advocates for the high school auditorium and the proposed Central Fire Station say both projects cannot be delayed.

• With a lawsuit behind it, the way is cleared for the Greenwich Police Department to finally make promotions.

• Police followed buses around town this week to make sure drivers follow the rules of the road and give buses respect on the road after a number of complaints from residents.

• With the recent school opening, Glenville is getting buzz among young families looking to settle down in Greenwich.


• With the recent passing of a town tree ordinance, JoAnn Messina of the Greenwich Tree Conservancy is calling for the community to reach out to her organization with a donation to help preserve town trees.

• Abilis, Fairfield County’s provider of support to teens with developmental disabilities, recently teamed up with Arch Street Teen Center to provide a night of fun for Abilis families.

• Jim Cameron shares the story of P.T. Barnum’s love of the rails. Could Rell be taking on his role as an advocate for commuter trains?

• While there is nothing in the town charter about taking a recount on an RTM election vote, we suggest that a vehicle be put in place to do so.

• Mary Ann Clark says sellers need to know the rules if they want to play the game. Price a house right and be cooperative with showings and a house will sell, she says.

• Andrew Szabo answers questions about Roth IRAs and whether they are a good choice for retirement investments.

• “Poor Bette Davis may not have gotten the romantic lead later in life, but she knew what she was talking about when she grumbled, ‘Old age ain’t for sissies.’” Says Joe Pisani in his column on Baby Boomers.

When Greenwich Roundup Types The Greenwich Time Listens:

The Greenwich Time Tries To Report On What Happened With Tony Byrne But No One At The Greenwich Board Of Education Or In Town Govenment Is Talking

One Month After Security Escorted Tony Byrne Out Of BOE Headquarters.....

Greenwich Time Cub Reporter Colin "BOE BROWN NOSE" Gustafson Starts To Ask questions About Tony Byrne, But Hits A Stone Wall With The Powers That Be

Greenwich schools facilities director to step down
By Colin Gustafson, STAFF WRITER

Director of Facilities Anthony Byrne has tendered his resignation, effective sometime in March, according to Board of Education Chairman Steve Anderson.

School officials declined to discuss the reasons for Byrne's departure, saying it was a confidential matter.

"I'm not going to discuss personnel, one way or the other," Superintendent of Schools Sidney Freund said.

Efforts to reach Byrne, whose absence began Jan. 4, on Thursday were unsuccessful.

"I was told (Byrne) was going to be retiring," First Selectman Peter Tesei said. He declined to discuss the matter further, saying it does not fall within his authority as first selectman.

District employees were notified of Byrne's absence in an internal memo on Jan. 4, a school official said.

Byrne earned $138,758.27 in the 2009 calendar year.....

.......As facilities director, Byrne was responsible for helping select contractors for school-related construction projects and maintenance work. He also supervised the work of these contractors, oversaw the district's capital projects, and managed the budget and operations of the custodial staff, a school official said.

His job has been filled on a temporary basis by Susan Chipouras, an independent contractor who worked with Milford-based Turner Construction during its management of Glenville School's reconstruction.........

....Town Attorney John Wayne Fox also declined to comment on Byrne's decision to take leave.

Greenwich Roundup Is A
Lean Mean Truth Telling Machine
That Is On The Side Of The Taxpayers


01/26/10 You Wont Read This In The Greenwich Time; Key Figure In School Mold Fiasco was escorted from his job at the Greenwich BOE

Greenwich Public Schools Facility Director Tony Burns was escorted from his job at the Board Of Education last week by security because he is under investigation for receiving kickbacks on the modular project and the Hamilton Avenue School building project.So far the official BOE spin for his firing is that he falsified time sheets.

That's Why Western Middle School Parents Are Crazy, If They Trust The BOE With The Situation At Western Middle School.

Please Also See:

Who Knows Maybe Tony Byrne Was Taking Kick Backs From Charles Schwartz, who the Hamilton Avenue School parents proved was no longer licensed, nor is his company Environmental Assessments & Solutions, Inc. registered with any reputable Environmental Agency or Group.

Colin "BOE Brown Nose" Gustafson Writes ....

Superintendent of Schools Sidney Freund believes his success as the town's latest education leader depends heavily on the success of his teachers and how effectively his administration supports them.

That's why some of his first moves since taking over as the superintendent have included holding off on introducing new initiatives that might add to the burden on educators and expanding the use of so-called "data teams" to set priorities from the ground up, he said.....

The Public Schools Don't Need Any Freaking "DATA TEAMS". They Need Empowered Parental Investigative Teams Who Will Put And End To The Fraud Waste And Abuse That Is Bankrupting The Single Family Homeowners Of Greenwich.

01/29/10 Quick Read: It Only Takes A Minute To Read The Greenwich Time


GHS lacrosse coach Burke sentenced to six months for DUI
The prosecutor said the case was not about alcoholism, but about getting behind the wheel and driving drunk....
.....His lawyer, Eugene Riccio, asked the judge to sentence Burke to the minimum of 120 days in prison, arguing that Burke had a disease and more jail time was not warranted.

"Simply put, my client has a disease and the disease is alcoholism," Riccio said.....
....Riccio said a jail term was likely going to lead to the loss of his job teaching and coaching at Greenwich High School.

However, the prosecutor, Assistant State's Attorney David Applegate, said Burke was lucky he didn't injure himself or others while driving drunk and never took advantage of the second chances he was given.

"I think he is lucky," said Applegate. "He is so lucky that car veered to the right and hit a stone wall that night. It was a busy road and he shouldn't have been behind the wheel of a car. That's why he is here today. It's not because he is an alcoholic.".....
.....Wenzel ultimately sentenced Burke to a two-year jail term suspended after six months and three years of probation. Burke will be required to conduct 100 hours of community service when he is released, attend a victim's impact panel and will only be able to drive with an alcohol monitoring device installed in his car.

Burke was escorted away by court marshals following the sentencing in handcuffs. Riccio requested an appellate bond for Burke to be able to get out of jail while an appeal is filed, but the judge denied that.

"I think it's in his best interest to move forward," said Wenzel.

School district officials declined to comment Thursday on the status of Burke's employment with the school as a teacher and coach now that he has been sentenced.....

Here was one of the first emails About Coach Paul Burke.....

As a local parent and sports mom, I was recently notified that the Lacrosse coach Paul Burke at GHS has recently received his 4th DWI. I am stunned and outraged that this man still hold this position of leadership and authority!

Where is the local news coverage?

That would explain the lack of town outrage - though there are many upset parents at GHS. This lackadaisical handling of our schools also affects real estate values. Perhaps you can look into this or open a discussion. What do you think?

Here is another email......

There was a meeting last night at the high school where coach Paul Burke read a prepared statement. He has figured out a way to get out of 4 DWI's and avoid jail by having his arraignment delayed by several weeks so he only has 3 DWIs within a certain period.
I am not up on the exact specifics and I was not at the meeting last night but heard about it from friends who were there. There was no Greenwich Time coverage today in the paper - I guess I should not be surprised.

I am very concerned about my incoming lacrosse player.

Not the role model I was hoping for.
