Last week, the new board of antitrustees of the Garden Valley School District voted to hire Randy Schrader as new superintendent/principal for the coming school year, at $90 grand. He has currently been serving as co-interim superintendent in Caldwell School District and "has experience in teaching, in district admin, and serving as a principal"....this is all I got from the new anticlerk of the board...after they voted to hire him...after I asked....oh, she never told me how much he would make---but I got to watch the video--lovely.
$90 Gs, when you look at other schools our size and what they pay and when you look at the bills the antitrustees and "Friends" have run up chasing dreams of malice, corruption and fun stuff. Hmm...perhaps they want it to look like they want him...and since he's been making $106K as Director of Secondary Services, why would he take a cut to come to this nest of vipers? So will he accept? Or will we be forced to accept the person the anti-children antitrustees really want? Just conjecture...
I remember last year, when the board was interviewing for a new principal and Mike Tomlin sent out gobs of info on the applicants to the entire community...and gave everyone several opportunities to meet them. I have been taken off of the mailing list for the school, as have others who used to try to keep the uglies in line...but I understand that few residents received info on these people who were interviewing for the puppet-position of SuperPrince. Guess it didn't matter to them because who cares who sits in the seat? "We are the POW-AH!"
Of course, I'm still waiting for the alpha male machismo hump-hump---too many boys, too much testosterone---Hazen, Fisher, Benedict and Gardner (David) are kowtowing to Ward, but for how long this submissive, lady-girly, take my backside, groveling at the knee and licking Ward's dust can the boys take?
Let's wait and see.
If the position is accepted, Schrader looks like a credible stand-in for the position, granted he never postures like a person who has any intelligence, and certainly not more than his inferiors, which would include all of the corrupt antitrustees now sitting on the board; maintains a provincial yokum demeanor and restrains himself from using a vocabulary past the tenth grade; and stays on the good side of Dr. Michael Koenig--and this would be the clincher.
More to watch for: Any sign of pretense to guidance, or gads! the nerve, even the suggestion of telling an employee what his or her job actually is (because we know it is their job to tell the school what their job is) ...Do not ever, no never, let pass a compliment, kind word, or offer to help, thus giving the impression he has a sense of tact or diplomacy or heaven forbid, Good Breeding--Yikes! Any of the above could bring complaints of intimidation, harassment and sexual --oh you know what happens when fat, ugly teachers take little girls for a potty and wash of the hands...any strange superintendent could walk by and say "you're welcome" and you know what happens to him--after the fat, ugly teacher goes home for the rest of the day to recuperate. Oh my GAW!
Well, lets hope this guy has no class. Let's hope this guy drinks with all the good ole boys in his office and writes out bonus checks for them--this corrupt board would love that--judging by how they and their "Friends" have run up so many bills harassing the former Supe and Board and now want to ask us taxpayers to pay for their malicious slander and libel and illegal, not to mention criminal, behavior, by passing a $600K levy!!!!!!...and gee, I didn't understand why they got to break into the Super's office and then glue up the lock and the antisheriff and the antiprosecuting attorney never even investigated.........oh yes, that's because antitrustees Rob Hazen and Alan Ward voted to not investigate themselves.....how thilly of me.
Funny, the anticlerk was sent into the dark of night to meet the Super on a clandestine rendezvous to advise the Supe to return his keys--but before 7 a.m., the school was protected by two drunken antis who are now running the school.
I remember another thing--some of us remember it all--ex-antitrustee Laurie Snyder said for the camera that the guys (Hazen and Ward) never went into Tomlin's office (how would she know?) (muddy footprints not on police report--how quaint) and Hazen Brazen-ly spoke to the audience (how he loves an audience) saying, "My name became involved somehow, I'm not sure how..."--try the police report here in front of me.
It's been grand but there is a video to watch and I'm still on vacation...Mark, though, the interesting exchange during the antitrustee process of voting. We here in GV just love watching Mr. Ward dig himself in a little deeper...smile for the camera...the lawyers are.
