One campus with 440 students now has 1 superintendent and 2 new principals! What has changed so much that warrants this new administrative expense in a small one-campus school? Are the responsibilities now realized to be too much for the new superintendent who received a large salary increase last year, whereas they weren't before? Here is the new Woodside administration: Web Link. Tax and foundation resources were and will be spent on new administration costs rather than investments in teachers, capital improvements, or new student programs. Check the salary increase for the new superintendent last year (not reported here). I wonder how much teachers salaries are going to increase vis-Ă -vis the total new administrative salaries over the past year or so. At least they didn't give Steve a raise or hire a new assistant principal... yet.

What is interesting is that you talk as if you know Mr. Frank. If you did you would realize he is the best thing that school has going for it.

Yep. Mr. Frank is the heart and soul of that entire school. He is the only administrator who is invested in the community. Have a clue before you post.
