That didn’t take long. No sooner does a Newark High School principal gets a lofty district position, the district announces two more administrative positions. Despite librarians not being fully restored even though it was a sort of/kind of referendum promise. Was this what the referendum was about? Filling more district slots? Have the class sizes been reduced in their planning for next year? Have all support staff been rehired or hired? Have all school budgets been restored? Has funding for performing and fine arts been restored? Does “enhancement” mean the same thing as “more district staff”? If the answer to all these questions are a resounding yes, then by all means, hire away. But if you can’t honor the promises made to taxpayers, then don’t complain when they vote no the next time around.
That last one looks tailor made for anyone working in the Delaware Department of Education Accountability unit. What does the Acting Superintendent do after all those job roles are shifted to someone else?
