VIDEO: Attorney Michael Inzelbuch: More than 2,000 kids still without busing, accountability needed; Inzelbuch praises Board President

michael-inzelbuch[VIDEO BELOW] TLS has learned today that there are approximately 2,000 nonpublic students who remain without busing, and hundreds of public school children whose transportation is not being provided in a timely fashion.

TLS has also learned, that as a direct result of our last update, and as a result of the Board President’s probing inquiry, the inappropriate over time that was being paid to district bus drivers who were not working full time, has come to an end.

According to attorney Inzelbuch, “the problem remains.”

Inzelbuch also stated “Despite the fervent efforts of the consortium, the Board President and Board member Zlatkin, and others, the facts remain – there are thousands of kids without bussing at all, or timely busing, and a very real concern if there will be enough money for the consortium to remain out of the red.”

Inzelbuch also stated, that “it almost appears that the consortium was set up to fail. For example, why wouldn’t whomever is in charge at the district allow the consortium have direct access to the routing information that the district already possessed – that would have saved hundreds of hours in creating routes, why are busses still sitting idle and not being used, etc.”

Inzelbuch has asked that all parents call Board President Barry Iann, who Inzelbuch stated, “appears to be a reputable guy, businessman, and someone who wants to turn around the failing company called the Lakewood Board of Education.”

  1. I don’t know where the number of 2,000 students without busing came from. Anecdotaly, it seems low and APP is reporting 4,000 private school children without busing.

    I am honestly curious what the point of calling the President of the School Board is, when it is the State Monitors that have full fiscal control. I feel board for anyone on this board, they get a lot of abuse, and have no authority to fix any of the problems.

    The State is the problem. Since the monitors took over, expenses have exploded, and to add insult to injury, we are stuck with an approximate $1 million tab to pay for the monitors.

    Doesn’t seem like the state has any interest in solving the problems their formula creates. You would think that after the monitors being here so long, and only making things worse, the State would either back off, or address the real problem.

    It seems like Lakewoods only hope is for other school districts to fail (which seems to be happening) so the State can find Azzarra a job somewhere else.

  2. Why is the director of transportation still approving overtime for the Lakewood bus drivers? Does the state monitor know about this? Why is director of transportation bragging about getting ten more buses? What exactly is going on in the transportation office?

  3. Maybe the monitors should check on all the pay raises that were given to Lakewood transportation dept employees approved by Tara Vasquez director of transportation who in fact is not even qualified to hold that position all the monitors wake up

  4. Driector of Transportation making 95,000 a year, her coffee getting girl making 40,000 with no experience or education, dispatcher making 50,000, secretary making 49,000 a year. and there are more high salaries being paid in that office. State monitors could save a lot of money in one small office very easily. Is anyone state monitor 1 2 3 or 4 keeping track of all this. If they are not doing non public and non mandated why need so many employees in that office??And why is the superintendent of schools watching all this nonsence and going along with it and backing the Director in all she does. Parents call that office to omplain all the time and Winters does absolutely nothing. She should be the next one monitored.
    So many questions and NO ANSWERS from anyone of the many many state monitors. Don’t you think??

  5. How do they expect to take back all the falsified overtime that was paid out to the drivers??this will never happen
    How about taking back the 10 paid sick days they get and 4 paid personal days. That would save toms of money, Whose idea was that anyway?TARA I bet with winters to back her,
    Maybe Tara should get some education on Directing a transportation department instead of using the telephone to call anyone and everyone for answers to questions she does not know. They are all fed up with giving her free advice. Nobody wants to help her anymore unless they can get a piece of her big 95000 salary, imagine a copy clerk running transportation. what a joke.
    And lets get to full insurance coverage 90 percent paid by the board. Dental, Medical, Vision, Eyeglasses, Dental. with husbands, children, significant others covered.
    Wow again. think how much more money transportation would save. and maybe then there would be enough to transport these poor non public and get some of this horrendous mini van traffic off the roads
