It seems to be a pattern.

Like town managers we’ve tracked and other people in high end positions, school superintendents seem to move from town to town or even state to state and still get hired no matter what they’ve done in their past jobs. (Paul Beecher)

Windham’s candidates for superintendent are no different.

Timberlane officials knew of teacher probe in March 2008

PLAISTOW — School administrators were told more than a year ago by federal investigators that middle school teacher and coach Scott Buatti was being investigated for possessing child pornography.

Shortly after a meeting in March 2008, the state Department of Education was notified, and hired an ex-Nashua police officer to conduct a forensic exam on two school computers Buatti used at the school. No pornography was found on the middle school computers.

Buatti was allowed to keep teaching and coaching for the next year by the school district.

That all changed Monday when 10 indictments against the 43-year-old for possession of child pornography were made public in Rockingham County Superior Court.


Superintendent Finalists Bury Past Controversies

“While outlining their educational philosophies to residents on Jan. 8, both Windham superintendent finalists answered to past controversies that took place while they were in leadership positions.

Candidates Winfried Feneberg and Dr. Richard Bergeron both took questions from residents for an hour each during a forum at Windham High School.”

Windham resident Paul Therrien asked Feneberg about his connection with an incident related to a teacher who was arrested and later found guilty on child pornography charges.
