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 imagine..it’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..

Steve Hurley Non-Renewal Hearing Reply

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  CATV6.com YouTube page later on today, and be scheduled on CATV 6 by Friday…it’s over 5 1/2 hours long!!!

What? Pressure from a High School Department Head to other teachers telling them NOT to go to the Hurley Hearings today… 2

Several reports from people at Housatonic Valley Regional High School that a certain Department head has been telling teachers NOT to show up at the hearing today at 3 PM.  Three emails to Region One Report, and then a telephone call today on WHDD/Robinhoodradio that made the same claim. If true, why? If teachers want to show up and show support, or just watch the session it is their right..this is an OPEN PUBLIC session.

TODAY IS AN IMPORTANT DAY IN REGION ONE ( Steve Hurley’s hearing at 3 pm at HVRHS Room 133) Reply

Today is Steve Hurley’s hearing at 3 pm at HVRHS. It is imperative that as many people in the community attend as possible. There is force in numbers. The board will see how much support Mr Hurley has, as long as people attend the hearing. This is one way we can get things changed. Please consider attending and let your voice be heard.
