Today's story about the district's hiring of the Cross and Joftus educational consulting company, and consultant Mary Guinn raises questions about the role of a consultant in a school district, particularly one who is working full-time and being treated, in many respects, like an administrator.
Board members are expected to vote today on a resolution by James Sampson to terminate the district's contract with Guinn's employer, Cross & Joftus. Here is a copy of the contract, which appears incomplete but was signed by Scott Joftus, former board president Mary Ruth Kapsiak and Superintendent Pamela Brown. Below is Guinn's resume.
Tonight's board meeting includes a huge and controversial agenda. Check back here for the live blog of the meeting, which starts at 5:30 p.m.
