I would like to make two points on this agenda: 1) Where is a copy of this contract with the SEA so that public may know what they are voting on. (or did they just slip it in) And, 2. Since the district has spent so much money on testing and data collection programs, they should give us a prediction of how the students will do on this years MCAS?
Why would you expect MCAS scores to go up? Teachers transition through our children's lives faster than their Snapchats. Administrators have the same fate. If you mess with the girls or their children you are going. And get Buzz ticked off at you . . . gone before the sun comes up.As for the public display of the Town's mega gift contract to the teachers union - the girls had to pay the union back for their support at election time. Remember when everything was going to be put on the website? I'm surprised Joe Bialy is still listed as the high school principal.
During the 1/14/14 school committee meeting, Mrs. Donovan discussed the issues that they wish to look at and improve this year. One of these areas of concern is with the English language learners program. Why would issues exist within a program that has no Director; although we continue to pay for one who left?In listening to Mrs. Donovan I was convinced that she wants to be the superintendent.
When there was a director, the scores tanked so what's your point?
Of course they did. But why are the taxpayers still paying her months after she "resigned" rather than be terminated? The girls and Buzz need to stop hiding these errors. Buzz hired her and, well she's gone a few months later, and is still authorizing her pay. And the committee members are still signing the warremts for this expense.
Why are we still paying for Director of Operations months after he resigned?
