I found this a very interesting move by the School District;
The job is called Director of Research Innovation and Accountability. The goal is to have one person look into the various programs and future goals of the district, to see where time and money need to be re-directed.
Doug Morrison served nine years on the school board, and is now leaving his high power career as CFO with CitiBank to help the district.
While I don’t disagree that this is a very good idea, I wonder when the negotiations began? I also wonder if this was Morrison’s idea? What did he know before he decided to NOT run again and retire from CitiBank?
I also wonder where state law weighs in on this with open meetings in creating this position and conflicts of interest with a former school board member.
The School District has a lot of splaining to do, especially what this position pays considering Morrison voted for the recent $50 million dollar opt-out before he left office.
At this point, this deal kinda smells.
