So...

Does that mean the contracts of the teachers will be written to have them paid their usual base salary plus incentives if they actually do their job correctly?

This is unbelievable. It seems to be just a group of spineless board members finding another way to increase Dallastown's budget - although tightening the budget was listed as one of Dr. Weinberg's "incentives". Guess he won't get that one...

The "spineless board members" are long-time incumbents who voted to hire Weinberg four years ago.

If they voted against renewal they might look foolish...they might even have to admit that they made a mistake.

Egos on the line. Taxes on the rise.

I'd rather see both deflated.

So he gets a bonus to work well with others? Isn't that in his job description to get his base salary? There is a reason he is a journeyman superintendent. He gets paid extra to listen to teachers and other educational leaders, why can't the Dallastown School board vote on my next pay raise? Expand, expand, expand, expand, expand, it's the Dallastown way.

All of Weinberg’s previous school districts bought out his contract to get rid of him. The reason they did is quite obvious. Dallastown finally had the chance to get rid of Weinberg without having to buy out his previous contract, and the board renewed his contract!

It was foolish of Dallastown to hire Weinberg in the first place (considering his past), but it is absolutely UNBELIEVABLE that the school board renewed his contract! I question those board members’ true agenda.

Weinberg’s arrogance and meanness along with the school board’s refusal to get rid of him has made Dallastown School District the laughing stock of York County.

It is amazing how one person can destroy the morale of a whole school district!

Even though it was public knowledge about Dr. Weinberg's past failures "non disclosure" clauses prevented the former employers from telling the DASD search committee the full truth about this candidate. Blame the lawyers for that one.

But blame the School Board for not peering into the horse's mouth and thus for hiring a horse's @ss.
