School Stay Away Order Lifted

Aisha Hiza (and daughter)

After ten weeks of generating bitter debate the controversial stay away order issued by ARPS School Superintendent Maria Geryk to single mom Aisha Hiza, who was advocating for her bullied child, has been lifted in its entirety effective June 1st.

Stay away order lifted
3/15 Stay Away Order

Temporary Town Manager Pete Hechenbleikner leaked the information published on the front page of today's Daily Hampshire Gazette although the draft letter he penned for the Amherst Select Board on this sad affair stated it was not a town issue but a Pelham police and school issue.


 Draft of response to Vira Douangmany Cage's email last week

Select Board Chair Alisa Brewer had asked the Temporary Town Manager last week to respond to an incendiary email from Amherst School Committee member and State Legislature candidate Vira Douangmany Cage suggesting their silence constituted endorsement of social injustice.

Interestingly one of the only criticisms of deceased Town Manager John Musante at his last performance review was the Select Board did not like to be surprised by what they see in the local paper and wanted to be kept publicly informed about potentially controversial matters before it hit the news.

The brokered deal also involves Paul Wiley, former Crocker Farm Elementary School Principal and now ARPS ombudsperson.

On his Facebook page former School Committee member and nationally known diversity spokesman Amilcar Shabazz stated:

Oddly, only days after Maria Geryk issued a statement to the press defending her actions in this affair, she rescinds the stay away order without informing the media, and sent a copy of the order to the Pelham School Committee but requested they keep it confidential.

You mean Ed was not notified as well?

Dr. Ed said...

1: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! -- If DCF can not take custodial rights away from a parent without a court order, how the hell did Geryk get away with doing it?!?!? That is what she did....

I don't know who Brian Roffer is, nor particularly care, Geyrk's line about making him (and not the custodial parent) the emergency contact for her child is in violation of State & Federal law -- even the police are under very strict restrictions on what they can do with a minor without parental notification, particularly when it's a 7-year-old.

And the second part of that sentence is a FERPA violation, both ways. Absent a court order mandating it, you (a) can't deny a custodial parent access to their child's "record", nor (b) provide the same to anyone else (without permission). "Any personally identifiable information" is part of the "record" -- hence "any and all communications from the school" would be bound by FERPA if the were about the child.

Larry, even DCF can't violate FERPA, not without getting an emergency court order.
Geryk sure as hell can't, and it is grounds for DESE to yank her certificate. (It's also grounds for ED to terminate all Federal funds, or whatever lesser sanction they wish to impose.)

2: Notice how Geryk can't avoid "twisting the knife." She couldn't simply write that "the order is hereby lifted" and leave it at that -- something that Hiza's attorney will note should Hiza sue.

3: As to the Amherst Select Board, in which town is "170 Chestnut Street" located? Whose police department has primary law enforcement jurisdiction over that office, and hence what is done in it?

But I still can't believe GERYK did what she did...

At any rate--maria geryk is guilty of no less than committing horrendous acts against a woman and child of color! It is disgusting that that two police departments--in whatever form they participated in this--are complicit in these criminal acts. Welcome to Apartheid Amherst--where we now have to walk around with papers in our pockets saying we are free women--and no longer belong to the master!!

Look, neither Aisha Hiza's personal life nor Maria Geyrk's weight is relevant to a review of what I consider serious professional misconduct perpetrated by Geryk.

anon 334 It has been confirmed that the police departments were not as involved as it was implied in the superintendents press releases.

RKA45 said...

I am thankful that the pelham school committee will tally their superintendent votes separately for our community to read easily. They will then submit their votes in to the three committee results for the overall evaluation. This will make it much easier for us to evaluate our school committee for re-election and whether we feel they are holding the administration to task on school goals.

RKA45 said...

Part 1 This is why Aisha wins... and Maria loses.. This was the mistake... Fed law.. Like the NW DA office the court also recommends policy and protocol around stay away orders. Second, the ARSU failed to provide Mr. Cyr with adequate alternative channels of communication. Furthermore, physical participation in open school board meetings is a form of local governance, and to the extent that Mr. Cyr cannot be present at these meetings to communicate directly with elected officials, his First Amendment right of free expression is violated. Hodgkins v. Peterson, 355 F.3d 1048, 1063 (7th Cir. 2004); see also Riley v. Nat'l Fed'n of Blind, 487U.S. 781, 791 (1988) (“[T]he government, even with the purest of motives, may not substitute its judgment as to how best to speak for that of speakers and listeners; free and robust debate cannot thrive if directed by the government.”).
In sum, the First Amendment does not permit the ARSU to confine Mr. Cyr’s speech to
telephone or “assistive technologies” by issuing a blanket notice against trespass when less 19 Case 1:12-cv-00105-jgm Document 57 Filed 09/30/14 Page 19 of 30
burdensome alternatives exist. See Madsen, 512 U.S. at 765. Accordingly, Mr. Cyr’s motion for summary judgement is granted as to his First Amendment freedom of expression claim, and the ARSU’s motion for summary judgment on that claim is denied. 3. Fourteenth Amendment Right to Due Process First, the fact that there is no protocol in place governing when an ARSU official may issue a
notice against trespass increases the risk of erroneous deprivation because it grants officials broad discretion to ban members of the public from school premises and, consequently, school board because it grants officials broad
discretion to ban members of the public from school premises and, consequently, school board 21Case 1:12-cv-00105-jgm Document 57 Filed 09/30/14 Page 21 of 30
meetings. See Shuttlesworth v. Birmingham, 394 U.S. 147, 153 (1969) (“[W]e have consistently condemned licensing systems which vest in an administrative official discretion to grant or withhold a permit upon broad criteria unrelated to proper regulation of public places.”) (quoting Kunz v. NewYork, 340 U.S. 290, 293-94 (1951)).Second, neither notice against trespass sets out any process for contesting the notice. Cf. Catron v. City of St. Petersburg, 658 F.3d 1260, 1268-69 (11th Cir. 2011) (trespass ordinance that lacked an appeal process is procedurally inadequate). In response to Mr. Cyr’s inquiries following the March 2012 notice against trespass, the ARSU merely informed him that they might lift the notice
against trespass if he underwent an independent mental health risk assessment. (Doc. 53-6 ¶ 39.)Third, Mr. Cyr did not receive a meaningful opportunity to contest the notices against trespass. See Wright v. Yacovone, No. 5:12-cv-27, 2012 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 157544, at *49 (D. Vt.Nov. 2, 2012) (“The opportunity to be heard must thus occur ‘at a meaningful time and in a meaningful manner.’”) (quoting Mathews, 424 U.S. at 333). Neither notice contained any explanation of the basis upon which it was issued.12 See Taylor v. Rodriguez, 238 F.3d 188, 193 (2d Cir. 2001)
(notice and denies the ARSU’s motion for summary judgment as to the due process claim.

Where was that confirmed? I missed it too.

RKA45 said...

Part 2 why Aisha wins in court
must contain “specific facts underlying the allegation[s]” that led to the government’s actions “because a hearing is not ‘meaningful’ if a [party] is given inadequate information about the basis of the charges against him.”). Cyr was informed of the basis for the March 2012 notice on April 27,2012, when he was told by letter only that it was issued “on the basis of a written notice of risk to faculty and staff provided to the ARSU under a professional’s ‘duty to warn.’” (Doc. 49-13.) Mrs.Cyr appeared at the April 2012 Benson school board meeting and attempted to contest the notice against trespass, but received no reply from the board. (Doc. 48 ¶¶ 139-40; Doc. 54-1 ¶¶ 139-40.) Upon weighing the Mathews factors, the Court finds the notices against trespass violated Mr.Cyr’s due process rights by depriving him of his First Amendment right to express his views at school board meetings without adequate process. The Court grants Mr. Cyr’s motion for summary judgment as to his due process claim

RKA45 said...

This is also why she wins because a school file when requested by parent should include these items

the principal will have your child’s cumulative file, which you will want to see and copy. Often the cumulative file contains little more than a profile card with personal identification data and perhaps academic achievement levels, some teacher reports, and report cards.
Confidential file. Also accessible to parents, the confidential file may be kept at your child’s school, or in a central administrative office where the special education program offices are located. The file is called confidential because access to the information is limited to certain individuals. Your child’s confidential record includes all of the reports written as a result of the school’s evaluation; reports of independent evaluators, if any; medical records that you have had released; summary reports of evaluation team and eligibility committee meetings; your child’s Individualized Education Program (IEP); and, often, correspondence between you and school personnel.
Compliance file (some schools). Some school systems keep the reports of eligibility meetings, correspondence between the parents and school officials, and other similar documents in a separate compliance file. The contents of the compliance file demonstrate that the school system has met the timelines, notification, and consent regulations required by IDEA.
Discipline file (some schools). Some schools may also maintain a separate file regarding discipline issues involving long-term suspension or expulsion.

Dr. Ed said...

If the Town of Pelham were to hold a Special Town Meeting and vote "No Confidence" in Geyrk, it would get noticed. It's archaic but Town Meetings can also "instruct" the town's elected officials to do certain things -- Pelham can "instruct" its SC members to fire Geryk. That'd definitely get noticed, even if she wasn't trying to bully Amherst voters into paying for a new MegaSkool.

The thing to understand about Caligula is that the doctorate she never completed was in Mental Health, not Education. Without exception, those in the mental health profession are (a) arrogant and (b) incredibly "thin skinned." They are bullies and bullies are inherently cowards attempting to hide their cowardice.

Geryk simply can't deal with free speech, let alone any speech that she perceives as being critical of her. Look at the visceral reaction to my merely stating that a woman's weight -- any woman's weight -- is something personal that she should not be forced to publicly divulge. One can only imagine her response to a municipal "no confidence" vote.

Let's be honest here. A courageous young woman prevailed against a powerful and abusive superintendent who routinely bullies parents and teachers alike who stand up to her. Dr. Ed is a brilliant but long-winded civil rights activist and legal scholar. And, the mean and hateful commenters on this blog who attack anyone who speaks up against what appears to be the illegal conduct of the superintendent, are shamed and humiliated once again (happens every spring) by their own (and the superintendent's) angry, spiteful, immoral and illegal conduct.

Actually this SB statement differs from Maria's official statement that the police recommended the stay away order

"the police determined that the safety concerns were credible and a stay away order was recommended."
https://www.scribd.com/doc/314292751/Maria-Geryk-statement

From Masslive (6/2/16)
"Pelham Police Chief Gary Thomann said police met with school officials but did not generate a written report. He said it was a school issue."

and this Select Board document indicates that APD declared it a Pelham issue.

So- looks like neither the Amherst nor Pelham police departments recommended the stay away order.

The key word here is "written report". The Pelham police Chief may not have generated a written report, but he could have issued a verbal recommendation. The two are not mutually exclusive.

The fact that no report cards were included should be reported to DESE on the presumption that there aren't any. You can't loose a child's grades.

Responding to Dr. Ed's first comment on custodial rights being taken away.

This situation is off, but when she voluntarily kept sending her kid to the school, how can the school be accused of taking the kid away. Once the order was made and she knew about it and still sent the kid into the school, she gave the kid up for the day, the kid was not taken.

"...but when she voluntarily kept sending her kid to the school, how can the school be accused of taking the kid away. Once the order was made and she knew about it and still sent the kid into the school, she gave the kid up for the day, the kid was not taken.."

OK, I'm assuming this is a legitimate question and will answer it.

1: Truancy: "Every child...shall...attend a public day school in the town the student resides...unless the child attends school in another town..." (https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXII/Chapter76/Section1)

All children are "taken away" by the school, in the sense stated above. Leaving School Choice out of this for a minute, Aisha was legally required to send the child to school. If she hadn't, Geyrk (or designee) would have filed what used to be called a "ChINS" -- "Child In Need of Services" -- petition with the court, essentially to put the girl into DSS (now DCFS) custody, i.e. "take the child away" from Aisha in the sense most people would think of that.

I don't know if a ChINS is mandatory, but I do know that a 51A is, at least as I understand/teach the law -- in the case of a truant 1st Grader, you'd have to tell DCF about that, and in theory, they'd actually care. So DCF does the ChINS instead.

Bottom line, no parent has a choice, it's only "voluntary" in the sense that filing Form 1040A is "voluntary."

2: School Choice: Lost in the noise about Charter Schools, which arrived with it, School Choice essentially allows regular schools to do the charter schools do -- take children from other districts with some of the state money intended to pay for the child's education coming with the child. Choice is not as lucrative as Charter because it was intended to be on a "space available basis, -- filling empty seats in a classroom much like filling empty seats in an airplane or empty hotel rooms.

While not the intent, Choice has been a Godsend to towns like Pelham, there is no way that school could be economically viable without a third (soon to be half) of the children attending being "Choice."

Like with Charters, you aren't allowed to "cherrypick" (or recruit your football team as one school attempted), you've got to take whoever applies, with a lottery if the number of applicants exceeds the number of seats you are offering. You are explicitly prohibited from any form of racial discrimination. You also have to keep any Choice child until graduation -- because Pelham accepted Aisha's girl as a Kindergartner, they are required to keep her until she graduates from ARHS.

Hence Pelham essentially chose to declare Aisha a Pelham resident, with money coming from Chicopee to Pelham because of this.

3: In loco parentis Latin for "in the place of the (custodial) parent, this is what Geryk violated, as the school acts as the agent of the custodial parent. Rights are retained by the custodial parent -- Geryk should know that.

Dr. Ed said...

One other thing -- the parent is required to provide transportation.

As it is inherently unsafe (I suspect illegal) to park in the travel lane of that road, by trespassing Hiza from school property, Geryk made it impossible for Hiza to provide transportation herself.

That's illegal.

Ah there's the rub? Why did she mislead the public you ask? Could it be she has been misleading the public all along and there was a very good reason to be banned from the school?

I am sure of it.

Of course the parent did something to get banned. The school would never want to buy this kind of problem if there weren't a really good reason for it!

She got the letter and then had phone call from Faye Brady which was very suspicious because Ms Brady was acting as though the ban was still in place. Since she received the letter with no witness present and she didn't sign anything, she was waiting on legal counsel advice due to her general distrust on the whole situation. She continued to only talk to staff and enter school with witnesses present because she was still very nervous about the whole situation.

Do not forget that Martha Mitchell really wasn't delusional, the Watergate Breakin really did happen. Also, an interesting piece on Earnest Hemingway, who wasn't paranoid, the FBI really was following him:

"J. Edgar Hoover had placed Ernest under surveillance because he was suspicious of Ernest’s activities in Cuba. Over the following years, agents filed reports on him and tapped his phones. The surveillance continued all through his confinement at St. Mary’s Hospital. It is likely that the phone outside his room was tapped after all.

In the years since, I have tried to reconcile Ernest’s fear of the F.B.I., which I regretfully misjudged, with the reality of the F.B.I. file. I now believe he truly sensed the surveillance, and that it substantially contributed to his anguish and his suicide."
