Steve Hurley lost his appeal to the Region One Board today Reply

In the end…there was no second to a motion that would have rescinded the Region One Board of Educations decision not to renew Steve Hurley, denying him tenure. After almost 14 hours of testimony, questions and answers, Steve Hurley lost his job. The first night of the sessions can be viewed at  the following link…


The second session (today’s)with the boards decision will be posted by tomorrow afternoon, check back then.


It’s back to work for the Region One Board Of  Education tomorrow (Tuesday June 26) on the non-renewal case against Steve Hurley. The video of the first session is now closing in on 100 downloads on the CATV 6 YouTube page…even at a length of  over 5 1/2 hours!  Just two witnesses were called in the first session, more on the way for tomorrow.

This is a very interesting look at another side of our education system, and at the request of Steve Hurley, it is open for the public to see. It is in room 133 starting at 9:00 AM. Once again, CATV 6 cameras will record the session, and have it posted on the CATV 6 YouTube page by Wednesday afternoon (long sessions make for long rendering times!) It will also be shown on CATV 6 next week on Tuesday and Thursday.

If you have time, we urge you to attend this session, and see a side of  our education system, that you do not get to see often.

Headline: Register Citizen: WINSTED — With Monday night’s town meeting on the proposed 2012-13 budget looming on the horizon, Winsted’s public schools have come under fire from multiple directions. Selectman Ken Fracasso lobbed criticism towards the decision by the Board of Education to issue superintendent of schools Thomas Danehy a $16,000 raise in salary and benefits. On Wednesday, the Democratic Town Committee joined in the fray, inviting the Board of Education and Gilbert School Corporation to join the Board of Selectmen at an upcoming meeting. Reply

So, it’s not just Region One residents that are concerned about administrative salaries as one particular BLOGGER has indicated in his rantings! And’s in the district where he works…and claims to know so much about!  Just more proof how out of touch he is with the communities that he lives in and the communities that surround him..

Wow, it was a long day into night 3 PM till 9:30 PM for part 1! Steve o the stand for about 5 hours. This is a unique opportunity to see the inner-workings of a high school. The next session is Tuesday June 26 starting at 9 AM. I hope more of the public will show up. The video will be posted on the YouTube page later on today, and be scheduled on CATV 6 by Friday…it’s over 5 1/2 hours long!!!
