Tommy Hazouri gets one right; the rest of the old school board got it wrong
Last summer when approving the old supers cabinet, Hazouri said we should only give them six-month contracts so the new super could bring in his own people. The old school board disagreed and rubber stamped all of Pratt-Dannals appointments despite often saying one of the biggest problems we have in the district is poor middle management leadership. They gave Pratt-Dannals a pass on everything.
Well fast-forward six months and Superintendent Vitti reports in the Times Union, ...he hasn’t been able to do the streamlining he wants because of employee contracts. Those contracts are up in June, and Vitti said the size of the district-level offices will be smaller, streamlined and money previously used at the district level will shift to the school level.
