MPCSD Sup and School Board are at it again

Original post made by disgusted, Menlo Park: Allied Arts/Stanford Park, on Aug 28, 2013

Yet another closed session board meeting has been scheduled for Superintendent Ghysels' evaluation on Friday, September 6. How many closed session meetings does it take to evaluate a superintendent? Is this just another way that the superintendent can secretly meet with the school board without a public audience to discuss district business?

How many meetings does it take to evaluate a superintendent? Are they evaluating his inability to retain high quality leadership?

When you're trying to craft a statement that puts a positive spin on a negative subject it can often take an awfully long time.

Don't be surprised if it turns out that the superintendent is once again going after a raise in salary for doing pretty much nothing. Too bad that the Board can't just own up to having made a terrible mistake in hiring him!

Just how many closed sessions about the incompetent Sup HAVE already occurred? Congrats Ghysels, you've turned yet ANOTHER district into a object of ridicule and a circus. Look at what is happening OVER HERE so we don't look at what the real stories are. Smoke and mirrors, courtesy of Sup. I'm removing my kids.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
