Location: 121 East 3 Street, Manhattan, NY 10009
Geographic District: 01
“Please investigate AP Friedman, she have been at STAR Academy for years and she have been stealing from NYC DOE. Stolen time from Per Session, CSA Parental Maternity Leave, SLT, SIPP, funds in school business account and more. If the secretary or staff refuse to do an illegal task for AP Friedman and Principal Cameron, they will harass you and bully you. They will give you a U grade for the school year. AP Friedman has a hold on Principal Cameron, Principal Cameron does everything AP Friedman tells her to do.
AP Friedman micromanage the staff, sends so many emails and expects you to answer all emails within 30 minutes. Last month AP Friedman gave the Parent Coordinator so many tasks to complete, the Parent Coordinator suffered a seizure. AP Friedman and Principal Cameron did not call 911 to assist PC Ms. Jackson. Back in April, AP Friedman asked the School Secretary to print out her CAR Days balance, a day or two later, AP Friedman came back to the Secretary to ask her to change her 19 Medically Certified Sick Days that was paid and approved for to 41PLM.
AP Friedman started taking every friday off from 3/4/22 – May 15th. Email was sent to staff informing us about AP Friedman days off. AP Friedman was approved by CSA for a second Parental Leave (1/25/2022 – 3/7/2022). AP Friedman asked the secretary to change any of her 19 Medically Certified Sick Days to 41PLM. When the secretary inquired with Human Resources and informed her, the harassment started. AP Friedman complained to Principal Cameron and also Superintendent Carry Chan. I refused to change her days and also I was advised from the School Secretary Network, Supervisory Payroll Specialist Janet Jackson and Payroll Specialist Mr. Pratt to not change her days without medical proof. AP Friedman and Principal Cameron approve their students to go on vacation for 2 – 6 weeks. Some students go to Puerto Rico, Mexico, Florida and other states and countries. Attendance is VERY POOR at The STAR Academy.
Please send OPI and SCI to investigate Principal Cameron, Superintendent Carry Chan, Deputy Superintendent Kristine Mustillo and AP Friedman. They protect each other and they all need to be held accountable for the illegal things they do. They need to be separated and demoted.
They are not good school leaders. “
