Big waste in my opinion is district academic officer. What is Taylor now? What does Hatfield do? To pay District Academic Officer $86,000 and she lives in Berea? What is her contract? Days? Where is she this week? Working?
gosh darnit

It is all public. The board had to approve the position and pay rate. Did they? How many days is she supposed to work? I bet Middy says she can work from home.
highly over rated

Good question. Maybe the positions need to be ditched. Too much waste in central office. Isnt that what Missy was running on way back? But now she creates the waste. Sup paid $50,000 more than normal. Reggie doing nothing worth his salary. Hatfield not needed because the new chick is supposed to do that job too. Eliminate at least two of these positions and save $150,000. Missy will never do anything to ditch Reggie - her hero. Just watch. Too much back scratching going on there. And Missy has a very itchy back. Get to it Reggie!
good bye

That's funny. Keep the shoe-throwing woman but get rid of a great employee - Hatfield? I agree Reggie needs to find a new zoo to join.

Have you ever asked Hatfield a question about education that you already know the answer to? Try it and see how far off base she is... it's quite fun!

To keep him from suing perhaps? I am sure the NAACP folks had something to do with it. They have become mighty big in the district recently. Take over?

I would rather pay the teachers who put up with the crazy kids all day,than the morons in various rolls through out the district.

Wasted money--former football coach/ad, turf for a football team that hasn't had a winning season since 2005,a gas allowance, how about the middle school principal he was a horrible teacher now he calls the shots wow!

In response to the comment about the school library,(where do I start?) Todays librarians do more than just hand out books. They teach research skills, different genres of books, technology skills,and foster a love of reading. Sure there are rooms in the schools that store books, but they can never replace an actual school librarian.
If you work a tax payer want to cut school expenses, look at the administration. These people work with no students, yet they make 3 to 4 more times what the teachers in your school make. They use school credit cards to pay for donuts and pizza for meetings.(They can't eat what the students eat.) Also academic coaches and elementary counselors need to go. These teachers are all fluff. They add nothing to the instruction of students.

Newport central office doesn't have the guts to eliminate these positions because there are only one or two teachers (MAX) who are any good who fill these positions and when Mikey and the Mafia created this horror story they knew that the tenured crap teachers who they made into coaches would have to be placed elsehwere in the district. It is EASIER to keep the crap teachers in coaching positions than classrooms and waste the extra money to pay them. So, even though there has been push to eliminate these worthless positions from the annual budget in past years you won't see Middy do it because he knows he would have to replace a few good classroom teachers with crap teachers. That is part of the bad side to tenure - and everyone knows it - even the crap teachers who enjoy job security.

Is it true that Turner decided to make a secretary in Central Office the new ATHLETIC DIRECTOR for Newport? What is her pay for this job? Is Tete rewarding the ladies who have been "loyal" to him? Keep the girls close so they don't bite your a**? I'm surprised "C" didn't get hand picked for that one....you know how she loves to pretend she's going to bite to get a bone thrown her way.
