Looking Good, finally!

We are happy to report that Dr. Adamowski is a welcome change from those who came before him. He appears to be a real leader with true vision.  We have had some seriously lacking superintendents, but that is past history. We look forward to new leadership and new changes.

Once again, comments are up to you.

Questions to Consider

Some questions that will determine the future of the Norwalk Public Schools and the taxpayers' contributions.....

Adamowski has uncovered expenditures hidden in grants that require a shift to the local budget. Estimated cost, $3,000,000? 

Adamowski has met with Special Education parents and has spoken of appointing a cabinet level administrator to oversee the department, adding other administrators to be sure Norwalk is in compliance with findings. 
Estimated cost, $1,000,000?

Add these costs to union contract increases and what's the total?

The Board of Education faces an election where everyone who is elected will be subservient to Mike Lyons and his wishes.  So far, we have seen Mike Lyons throw everyone under the bus who disagrees/challenges/differs from him. Is that an opinion or a fact? Recently Rivera, and the usual victims, were victims for the grants problem. Did we get to hear the victims' side of the story? Squelched!

Teachers are fed up with computer problems, but they are challenging an appointed administrator who is protected by Mike and his followers.  Apparently the grants administrator is in the same category, unless there is another reason why she is not ever mentioned for grant-gate?

Remember Daddona, who was the whistleblower for the After the Bell illegal grant expenditures? He took quite a beating for exposing illegal expenditures from a grant.  Does it make sense to you that Mike Lyons named Daddona first (in Mike's list) as in charge of determining how the grant-gate money was spent?  Does that make sense to you? 

Taxpayers, you were thrilled with the Rivera/Lyons budget for this school year.  Don't you wonder how the Adamowski/Lyons budget will add up for next year?  If 10% of you vote, you can be sure only those 10% get their way.  They support the new administrators and all the costs. Do you?

Feel free to add any other concerns or comments.
