    You will find interesting things in Elmira regarding ray bryant. his resignation was more impart to running from allegations regarding misuse of appropriated funds. the district “paid” off another assistant superintendant (during Bryants tenure) with extra sick days as part of a severance package…..some of which, after investigation Robert Gosden (afformentioned) returned to avoid further penalty. On Bryant (and others) watch, ineffective administrators were “hidden” with new, made-up titles at the Admin building in order to get them out of the schools. These people are now principals of their own office making 100k.

    Bryant was shady when he was here, and he’s probably just as shady in Warwick. Where there is smoke, there’s fire. Good luck dealing with him. Chances are he’ll slide on to the next unsuspecting district.

    Will you be having another meeting? All that Ray Bryant and our present board have done in recent weeks has created such discord. We need to come together and rebuild our community.

    The Ray Bryant story continues to unfold. He has quite a history at his previous school districts. But the challenge of the Warwick School District lies in the Board’s willingness to let Ray run things the way he wants to. It’s amazing that the community has not yet tarred and feathered every member of the board. Board president, Dave Eaton, and Ray are close friends and neighbors.
