How much PAY did Hufnagel walk away with due to loopholes in his contract like what was done previously?

Why is it so difficult to understand that the admin. school bod and especially our elected people have us taxpayers held hostage. There is not any thought on their mind except their pay which of course they vote their own increases. I think we should have two CEO's Barnum & Bailey

Or give them a very healthy monthly bonus amounting to the tune of $ 10,000.00 per month for the extra work of finding a new super, only to hire a consulting "non-profit" organization to do the work for them for over $ 10,000.00. What's wrong with this picture?

I don't care what the names are. The names have nothing to do with it. The point is this Board after employing draconian cuts on education, extra curriculars, and most of its staff chose to not ask it's top execs to share sacrifice, instead it gave them a monthly bonus. If there work is so overwhelming and they have been so underpaid to begin with why did some of them just recently take their positions and why have some of them commuted to the area for more then a decade? If I was on the negotiating panel for the Teachers Union or any other union facing off against the Board and Administration in the future I would follow Stalin's admonition to the troops during WWII. "Not one step backward".

You obviously have a personal grudge against these people and I don't want to know why because you probably won't say what it really is. I will say that it comes across rather mean-spirited.

garypayton a.k.a the grammerking. Wow do you sound bitter and nasty. If you hate this county so much, then maybe you should just look at another to live in. And perhaps, you need to look at your own grammer. Skoolin is not a word!

You all wonder why there is a "brain drain" in Warren County. Look how you treat educated, professional people doing their job. Jim Grosch is not greedy. He's doing the job for the salary it's worth as would any of you. But go ahead and drive him out of town like all the the other smart professional people. Nice people.

As long as we have people to blame, right? Here's a question from someone that does have kids in school: Why can't the board find a competent CEO that will stay for longer than a year or two? People with brains steer well clear of this area. Come for the great weather, stay for the abuse!!

garypaton, You sound as if you don't have children at these schools. People unaffected are usually the ones to call everyone else who disagrees with the board on their decissions a "moron". Easily said when its not your children affected.

In the end of this article, they speak of closing South Street and of parents being concerned about WAEC being even more overcrowded then it already is, but this is "doable". I think they should of elaborated more on how this is "doable". I, personally think this could be a firehazzard. WAEC is going to be a zoo with its afterschool activities and dropping and picking kids up. What a foolish place to put it in the first place. If money is the bottom line then they should start with their own saleries and quit taking away from the kids. They haven't listened to the parents in the past and they will keep doing whatever they want no matter what the majority of parents want. Their GREEDY!! In 2005 after 1,000 signatures on a petition, they chose to close all school's and build the new WAEC. They could have saved money by closing some and using what we had. They didn't listen then and they won't now.

I am so happy that with teachers buying their own supplies in record amounts, extra curriculars being cut, classroom sizes being increased, direct educational positions being cut, textbook purchases being curtailed left and right that this Board stood up for what was important and gave senior executives(the highest paid staff within the School District) a bonus for the extra work they would be encumbered with during the search for a superintendent. This group is all about the kids, Thank God!!

Was the PSBA involved with the search two years ago?

"Business Manager Jim Grosch said after the meeting that there is a line item in the budget for superintendent search services, but that a transfer of funds to the account will be required because the district did not foresee the vacancy."

Then maybe, just maybe, they should give back their $ 10,000.00 per month increases. It seems that this PSBA is doing the majority of the heavy lifting anyway. can the board be serious?
