Dawn,

I would like to appeal the proscribed sanction. On the following grounds:

1) At the time of the February 4th incident, I was not aware of that I could complain to your office. I have since forwarded complaints to your office. A few you have considered and others you have dismissed. My point is that prior to February 4th, I did not know that venue was open to me and what happened was that those frustrations with that one individual have festered and did not go attended.

2) Since the February 4th incident, an investigation from this office and her first line supervisor has vindicated some of my claims. Her supervisor assigned her some corrective action and the problem is resolved.

3) In a mediated conference, Mr. Schreiber himself conceded that his language did not de-escalate the situation.

4) I have made good on a good faith compliance with the sanctioning. I attended on session with Dr. Lyons.

5) 59 days have elapsed without an incident

6) Financial considerations which I have outlined in previous correspondence with Ms. Creekbaum illustrate how difficult it is to comply with the sanctioning.

Thank you for your consideration.

Hello Jim,

This is just to summarize the conversation that we just had on the phone. We discussed that you are currently unable to complete your counseling session due the reasons you listed below and as of yet, you do not have a plan to rectify your transportation needs at this time nor do you see this changing any time soon. We discussed and you stated that you understood that your deadline for session completion is June 20, 2011. You also stated that you feel that the sanction of 8 sessions is excessive and that you will be writing you objection to this number sessions and sending that to the Director of Student Development, Dawn Kohn. Please review the terms of your probation letter regarding appealing, as this will go to Aaron Pompey, not Dawn Kohn. Finally, we discussed that you would in fact need to re-start this administrative counseling process by meeting with me and that you would contact me should your situation change in the near future.

Good luck to you in your efforts to resolve your transportation issues. Thank you.
Best Regards,
Ina Creekbaum, M.S.

Ina,

You are correct and I cannot account for that. Sorry for the confusion.


I cancelled my appointment with Dr. Lyons because I have no gas money. He suggested I take the bus. I didn't have money for the bus then. I don't have money for the bus now. My car needs a new transmission, brakes and has an oil leak. The gas in my apartment is turned off. My phone bill is past due. There is no food in my refrigerator, there hasn't been some in quite some time.

Hello James,

I left you a message today requesting a return to discuss the requirement of counseling that was outlined in your letter from the Director of Student Development. Please return my call as soon as possible so that we may discuss any issues as well as next steps. Thank you.
