Farmington will only be able to attract someone who is going to use them as a stepping stone. It will be someone young with no experience or someone coming from out of state who is looking to relocate. Smart Superintendents don't want to go to places where know nothing school boards exist.

Supentendent Needed to work in Farmington school district. Must be willing to coddle a school board that acts like a middle school bully. Expect to be fired within 2 years, amid a hail of blame assignment and finger pointing. Apply directly with one faction of the school board, not the other.
oh boy

I can see it now, "We had to pay more than we wanted to fill this position because of the competitive market and to get the best person for the job."

We could trade Mauer for a catcher that isn't injured half the time and be a better team.

We have all seen this scenario played out in the movies.
It is the classic scene in western movies: Four horses are galloping at top speed, pulling a driverless stagecoach occupied by a damsel in distress. The hero saves the damsel by jumping from his horse to the stagecoach and reining the horses in before the stagecoach plunges off the cliff.
In Farmington the damsel is the school district and the students. The driverless stagecoach is the school board. However, in this case there will be no hero, as the students and the school district will be pushed over the cliff by the leaderless school board.

Be careful what you wish for school districts. Quality leadership is critical to success. Who'll want to work in districts with aimless, dysfunctional school boards who want to micromanage their administration. Parents...time to get rid of these board members and elect some people who will work collaboratively with administration (this does not mean rubber stamp everything) with the common goal of the best possible education for your kids. I thought we had bullying prevention programs and strategies in our schools? No wonder some of our kids act the way they do...they're learning it from their parents.
