Apology to School Board??
Mar 25th, 2008 at 9:27pm
 
I have spent several days on the phone and on the internet checking out the candidate pool for superintendent. Since Carla told me Steven Wallick withdrew, I stopped checking on him.

I have to admit I don't think you had the best pool of candidates from which to choose and I can understand how you chose Dr. Swopes.

However, I do think before he is offered a multi-year contract, we need to know under what circumstances he left his superintendent's job in 2002(?) since it looks like he left mid-contract and took a much lower paying position and at least one, if not more, of his contracts the last 5 years were not renewed.

I am glad I am not in your shoes!

If it doesn't work out with Swopes, why not groom Ms. Houston, at Emerson, or Ms. Pickett, at Bennett, for the position? Both have proven track records. Assuming they would be interested.

Why look outside the district when we have success stories within the district already?
