  • does anybody know the velocity on steve today? does it look ok?

  • 1sgw3k – The board would have liked to have the contract effective 7/1, however, Dr. Copel is one of the very few superintendents whose contract expires on 7/31, rather than 6/30. Legally, a school district cannot have 2 superintendents. In effect, the consulting agreement allowed the superintendent to start on 7/15, without the title of superintendent, at the same exact rate of pay he would have received if we were to start his contract on 7/15. This rate is $875 per day compared to the current superintendents rate of nearly $1,000 per day. Again – this is not extra money, it is the rate of pay that we would have paid him had we the ability to start his contract on 7/15.

    With regard to your query on the reorganization meeting – you cannot seat a new member until the outgoing board members term expires. This is in July and cannot legally be done earlier.

    You refer to special interests on the board making this decision which is not in the best interest of the district, children and community. Please explain what those special interests are?
    You and a few others can continually make these FALSE allegations but my interest have always been clear and public and I have acted in accordance with them:
    (1) I have 4 school aged children in the district
    (2) I am a taxpayer

    Additionally, I do not let things cloud my judgement/actions like:
    -Hiring relatives in administrative positions,
    -Being close friends with administration/faculty in the district,
    -Having family members receiving frequent stipends for activities in the district,
    -Engaging in business activities with the district.

    You can continue to throw out false allegations which do damage to the district while hiding behind an anonymous posting, but it does no one any good.

    For those of you who read these blog postings, please note that the consulting contract with Dr. Cohen is NOT a signing bonus, nor is it money thrown away. It was simply an arrangement to get him to start on 7/15 in a legal manner and allow for some overlap with existing administration, which is what many community and board members had wanted.

  • 1sgw3k – forgive me if i inferred something you did not imply.
    My comment was based on your statement that actions were taken “to suit special interests on the Board”.
    Do you care to explain what those “special interests” are?
    You are welcome to email me or call me to discuss in detail any time.

  • Rich,

    I’m taking a vacation from work beginning tomorrow, so I set up an auto reply around 10 p.m. As the moderator of our commenting program, I have the ability to moderate through e-mail replies. Unfortunately, because of this, my auto replies were being posted to the site. If you notice, my auto reply is posted on every comment made since 10 p.m.
    I’ve since changed the settings on our commenting program so this doesn’t happen for the remainder of my vacation.
    I can assure you I am not 1sgw3k, although I can see why the auto reply might have led you to believe so.
    I don’t anonymously comment on news stories on this site. As the editor, I have no reason to. As you know, I penned an editorial on this matter today and signed my name to it.
