Geoff, will "hissy fits" be allowed on this group?

If not, no thank you.

Trustee Foley posted a link to the invitation of FaceBook. Here is my response and her reply.

Bruce Krochman:

Katrina, love your enthusiasm, but seriously, the board may NEED our input (for political reasons), but they don't want or will use our input. After being parents of students in NMUSD for almost a decade and a half, I can tell you from personal experience that of all the times we have helped by providing input on one of these committees it has NEVER been utilized.

Why doesn't the board do what they have been elected to do and hire an executive officer? When I need a new employee that is exactly what my boss expects of me. I hire someone and I am responsible for that decision. Clearly the board is trying to insulate themselves from criticism for making a decision that is their responsibility as our elected representatives by creating this committee.

I completely disagree. I am happy to make the decision and know exactly the kind of Supt I want to see. What has been missing since I have been on the board is community input about what direction we want to go and what are our short term and long term priorities. I need the community input and welcome it. I understand if you pass this time.
