Eastport South Manor School Board Lays Off 23 Teachers

If you read the article, the district is totally changing how often a special ed child sees a certified teacher. This is decreasing services to those kids and not fair to THEM.

Highhatsize-The class size in elementary will be 25. High school I think they said will be 29 in many classes. Also, special ed teachers are paid on the same scale as elementary teachers, art teachers, gym teachers , science teacher....

Plus they just fired a head custodian for stealing money from the district but is trying to keep it quiet. How much was the bill to change all the outside locks in every building last week? " Mar 18, 11 5:22 PM

Not really...if these kids move to another school the district will loose money to pay for it. The money follows the kid. SO it would be in the best interest of the district to keep these kids in district. They want to keep them but they want to fire the experienced autistic teachers with special ed teachers with seniority and never taught this population." Mar 18, 11 5:25 PM

Even if the teachers gave money back, they can not get those teachers back. The district changed the program. There are no longer spots for them if they stick to the A day/B day schedule where the special ed teacher only sees their kids every other day.

highhatsize- most schools on LI have those numbers in the classroom. You will not find those numbers anywhere here, even in some private schools. " Mar 19, 11 9:35 PM

Sag Harbor School Spending Up 5%; Taxes To Climb 4%

ESM teachers are not suing for the loss of their jobs. The union is fighting on behalf of the special ed parents that are now getting their certified teacher HALF time, instead of full-time like every other student has. " Apr 9, 11 6:51 PM

Eastport South Manor School Board Suspends Teacher For Endangering Student

Schools hide this information all the time. Ask district officials how many teachers have been in the "dungeon" this year already. There was even an administrator there a few months ago but now back on the job. Most districts just push a teacher over to another school. There have been many situations and the teacher is just transferred, making other teachers move for them to fit in. Manorville needs their own newspaper to start investigation some of these issues and letting the public know what is going on. Even this story is weeks old already. " Apr 23, 11 1:00 PM

We have had that happen too because the school makes the person sign a resignation letter instead of trying to fire them or press charges (just like what happened to the facilities/grounds/custodial head person). When I said change schools, I meant usually they will change buildings in the same district and force good teachers to move to accommodate the "problem" teacher." Apr 24, 11 7:43 PM

Not really fat....all the other departments get their chairperson. I do not think that a chairperson is an administration. Get rid of a superintendent for the big bucks..." May 28, 11 6:24 AM
