  1. First question..why was another school business administrator fired on Monday?

    1. What was his / her name…?

      Will Peewee get to name the replacement..?

      1. Fortunately, Pee Wee has nothing to do with this.

    2. Yep. Kwak and Dani strike again. People have to see this is a problem!

      1. yes they know how to add

        1. James – something’s rotten in Copenhagen. I can’t understand why you defend these two.

          Those 2 don’t understand….you catch more bees with honey that you do with vinegar.

          1. because the school system is run for the pleasure of the NJEA (teachers Union),it not about kids its about teachers and they massively overpay for everything . FYI the BA had some issues at her previous gig and the turn over statewide for school Admin is astronomical

      2. It is not just Kwak and Dani; Mahmood is drinking the same Koolade too.

        1. he does what he is told

  2. Yes Julie Kot was fired , another incompetent so called administrator. Where do they find these people. It’s like a revolving door

    1. Says who? She was highly recommended and highly qualified. She just couldn’t get with the boards “agenda”. Watch the meetings she was bullied by Kwak constantly.

    2. That’s the second business administrator they’ve fired in just over one year.

    3. From Monday’s agenda.

      Looks like 2 people got canned. Ms. Kot and someone else. Kot is #9434.
      Administrative Leaves with Pay
      It is recommended that the Board approve employee #7665 for administrative leave of absence with pay effective April 17, 2024, through May 17, 2024.

      It is recommended that the Board approve employee #9434 for administrative leave of absence with pay effective May 15, 2024, through June 30, 2024.

    4. What u have heard about her being fired is that she had opposed giving facilities for free for some of Shelia Brogan’s projects.
      No other board members were involved in this firing. It was purely done by Sheila!

  3. It’s not just in the Education, there’s big problems in the workforce Throughout the village.

    1. Yes, lowest morale ever. but you know, Keith is a little busy doing the council’s bidding or out at games at Vets calling balls and strikes, the natives are restless and probaably even a little worried that a furlough is hovering over their heads again like last year.

  4. I’m not understanding the oft repeated ‘calling balls and strikes’ comment.

    Is the Whistleblower Guy also an umpire in town?

    1. It is an expression he has used when describing his role in the village.

  5. The board had nothing to do with her being fired. There were numerous complaints about her. I heard she was very condescending treated ppl like her minions.

  6. Interested to see what Mary Micale will have to say about BA on Monday, Her campaign focused on admin turnover so what gives

  7. No loss in her being fired but why is she still being paid?
