The school board and Padasak should be cutting the bloated bureaucracy.

"This, I think, will force the district cabinet to work together," Padasak said.

Padasak's management style has fostered the dissent between the members of the "cabinet".

What a load of horse manure. Is this really gonna benefit the students or the administration?

Dysfunctional. Too many folks in charge of too little.

I agree with the aforementioned comments and wonder why Hodge's previous position of HR Director is now listed as a vacancy....guess they found money for this position by all the furloughs of staffing that directly deal with students...makes you think doesnt it!

So what is new? Same old CYA admin shifts. No work, but a lot of "responsibility".
The changes are "...expected to have administrators in schools more next year." Where in the #$@% do you expect them to be? The golf course, Dilly's, let's have it. Aren't "school admins" expected to be in "schools"?
Padascam said: "Responsibilities were also shuffled in order to reduce the workload of Dusman and Michael...". Oh - Like they are over worked, uh huh!
Same ole, same ole....these yoyo need to get out in the real world and get real jobs. See what it's like to be expected to work 48 to 60 hours per week, 52 weeks per year, minus vacation.

Cut school programs, staff and add to the administration?? Kudos to the two school board members who voted against this! You could hire two teachers or 8 support personnel for this vacancy they will be filling! Doesn't make "cents" to me but then again, that's another chapter in the book!!

If they have time to be in the schools, that means they aren't worked enough. Schools functioned just fine when the higher ups were not in schools. So we have a hiring freeze, why then do we need to hire a human resources manager (as is now posted)? Just more and more spin. When Sylvia doesn't do the article, its much much easier to see the spin.

The Administrators could take off from Sept-May and the schools would run fine without them. Nobody would even know they were off. They don't DO anything that affects the day to day activities.

Don't suggest they take time off or they might. Perhaps a global job hunt taking them from Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, or perhaps the Bahamas. All while collecting a nice check in the process.

The employment recruiting expedition went to Puerto Rico several years ago not Aruba.

The purpose was to find qualified bilingual teachers to lead our growing Spanish speaking students in the district.

I vote for Mr. Purvis to be promoted to Director of Human Resources. He is a nice person.

Mr. Shawn Stenger would be a good high school principal. Give him a chance too.

District Office administrators do not like to be in the school buildings; they like to look important behind their desk in their office! And most of them were horrible teachers when they were in the classroom!

Couldn't agree with you more. The less you produce, the further up you go. Unbelievable.

I am thankful Cathy Dusman you have no idea what she does for elemantry students and their parents, unless you know what goes on behind the scenes you have no room to judge. Cathy you do an amazing job and don't let anyone tell you any differently
