Paul Rotondo, Superintendent of Transfer Schools and District 12; Former Principal of Cascades High School
Failure to protect children from bullying and bodily harm child kicked in groin urinated blood. Failure ro designate assault as assault. Left victim open to another assault.
this school is not under Superintendent Rotondo’s supervision. This story has nothing to do with him. He’s a high school only supt.
Paul Rotondo is a lousy human. He allows Principal Yallowitz at Metropolitan Diploma Plus HS to abuse teachers and try getting them to cheat. If a teacher says anything or goes to the union they are retaliated against. Rotondo is a strong supporter of retaliation. This can be seen by his actions in his sexual harassment case happening.
Wow, you obviously don’t know this man. Having worked with him as my principal I can only say, I have never had a better supporter of students and teachers. He is a professional educator and you obviously don’t know who he is or you wouldn’t have written that.
If he cares so much about education, how come has done nothing to help stop Principal Meri Yallowitz from continuing her corruption at Metropolitan Diploma Plus High School. The teacher turnover rate is ridiculous and many teachers are forced to quit or discontinued for not wanting to get involved with anything illegal like cheating. You’re right I don’t know him personally but from what I’ve seen he supports this kind of behavior and what he was accused of doing to that poor woman at Corona Academy shows the kind of person thst he is. If he really did care about education he’d go after Principal Yallowitz and do something about her cheating and mistreating teachers.

In a school that is as small as 11 teachers when at least 2 teachers quit every year and 5-7 leave every year and at least 2 being unjustly discontinued in two years as well as three teachers having to go to the papers and acusing Principal Yallowitz of cheating on Regents, yet Paul Rotondo keeps the devil Yallowitz employed. He can’t be a good person for allowing this to continue. I’m sure that the above positive post is something he wrote himself.
I know this man quite well and I can tell you from my experience he is a typical “ladder climber” and would do anything to get ahead. Of course there is nothing wrong with true ambition and hard honest work that allows one to reach higher ground but when such aspirations depend on doing the work of a henchman and a level of deceit and hypocrisy then it is appropriate to let the public know the truth. When I heard of the allegations against this man stated here and the pending sexual harassment case, I was not shocked but rather relieved to know that the rat behind the curtain is beginning to stink! Karma is an a antidote to the parasites that live off children and hardworking underpaided teachers that have to face entitled ladder climbers like this man. This man never gave two flying fish about the future of the school, students or their teachers at Cascades! He cared only for himself and the future of his own family! He was basically sent in to rid the school of veteran teachers whose termination under the Bloomberg administration was seen as a desired goal! This man did an excellent job at doing just that by finding ways to pressure and push some great educators out the door! Once the job was done the old boys club made sure he was promoted up the ladder by making him Superintendent of Transfer Schools!!! Bingo!
I just pray that this horrible creep spends his 2019 behind bars like he deserves! He should not be allowed to continue in the position he is in!
Rotondo will beat all of his charges even though this small creepy man is guilty of sexual harassing this women!
The only way this man can arise as a trustworthy individual if he goes after Meri Yallowitz and Metropolitan Diploma Plus HS. If he went after the one school at Crotona maybe he had his reasons but he should not be ignoring the problems at this school. Please review Meri Yallowitz Don’t tread on educators site and ask yourself how any decent superintendent or human keeps a woman like this employed. Maybe Paul is a good man and will take action, but reviewing his background it is really hard to tell!
Do some research on your schools Paul. Metropolitan need to close-down Do your job by using your brain and not with just with your PEN15!
Yes..so true.The superintendent is smart enough to know everyone can’t be lying.
People want to work hard and be there for the students.But no teacher should be treated the way they are being treated in that school.In addition, sonething needs to be done Test scores are high because of the hardworking staff..as are the visits successful due to staff.Please stop this mean and abusive principal!
Test scores are high because the teachers she promote are giving students the test answers. Test booklets are opened and reviewed prior to the test. Students with 50% attendance rates are passing at a 90% rate. The newer teachers work hard but the main reason for high scores is test cheating. I watched a girl who spoke no English who took her math regents 7 times scoring in the 20s and 30s get one one on help on the test and improve to an 80 afterwards. Two of the teachers tried pressuring me to cheat and would brag about there passing rates all the time. Students review the test questions and essays prior to the exams being given. They review an hour before the test. Do something DOE or OSI. Lock these corrupt people away now!
Paul does not care about teachers or students. This can be shown by the fact that after seeing the above messages he went and visited MPHS to congratulate Ms. Yallowitz on her horrible school. This guy gets away with touching women and letting corrupt principals get away with whatever they like. Such a horrible person.
Maybe now that Paul sees that over 50% of staff at Metropolitan Diploma Plus HS is leaving again Paul will do something. Year after year teachers quit, leave, or are discontinued without cause. Do something Paul. I was rated ineffective by Ms. Yallowitz and now I am a highly effective teacher? Fire this horrible person!
You got pleas coming from every direction to help the teachers and students at Metropolitan Diploma Plus High School from Ms. Meri Yallowitz. What other evidence do you need to close this school down or fire this corrupt woman? What dirt does she have on the higher ups that you refuse to help teachers and students who are being abused and harassed daily at this school? Paul Rotondo, you need to do your job as a superintendent and intervene. This is a sad story and situation you are allowing to continue. Have you seen her Don’t Tread on Educators page? We are dying for you to step in and do the right thing. Please help and stop pretending like everything is fine there!
