Is the school board listening?
Original post made by Dan on Apr 5, 2007
Now, just months before a new superintendent arrives, I see that the board has promoted Scott Laurence to a position that has been open for four years, with no open posting or opportunities for others to apply. Laurence may be a good principal, but using "being recruited" as a reason to promote him is insulting to the management team and to the community.
In fact, it looks like a thin cover for cronyism.
Does the board plan to make such accommodations for the next employee who says he/she is being recruited? This is not the way to manage a district, nor address its obvious cultural problems.
While the board claims to be listening, its recent actions indicate just the opposite.
