Preview: Monday's School Board Meeting Jam-Packed

A number of hot-button topics are on Monday's agenda.

Monday’s Greenfield School Board meeting, the first since Conrad Farner resigned as superintendent, is sure to be an eventful one.

The two biggest items expected to be discussed are the filling of Farner’s vacant position, as well as determining the hiring process for a new director of business following the resignation of Kristin Kollath.

The board is also expected to take up school start times and school schedules, more than 20 months after the school board voted down a measure to make any time changes.

And in closed session, the board will discuss the class action lawsuit filed against the district by more than 200 teachers earlier this month.

And PS....to an earlier comment above: go over your boss' head to the school board when you don't agree with him? Not very professional and DEFINITELY not good for job security! (especially in public education!)

Your Boss is The School Board. They would have every right to go to the Board with a problem.

Matt D. if you knew what has really been going on at CO you would not be saying that. Ask around to the teachers and find out why Todd is not a good choice. He is LUCKY that he has not been in trouble for some of the things he has done. It is wrong both morally and professionally. If Conrad would not have been his boss, he'd have been gone a long time ago. He has no working knowledge of curriculum, no follow through skills, and certainly no organizational skills.

Valid point KHD.

This is where I'm confused. I know several teachers, many of them have been on board for quite some time; they have always said positive things about Mr. Bugnacki's leadership. A couple have said that he's in over his head, trying to balance what would be 2 or 3 different positions in another district at once. (I think someone made the point on a different thread that maybe going back to a traditional CO where people could concentrate on a dedicated area would be more productive, which makes sense.) I'm still not convinced that taking the time and money to do a search wouldn't simply produce what we could already have without a ripple in the educational pool. But that's just me. BTW...I was told that this forum is only for the "CO-haters who have personal vendettas going", and that if I posted here I would be insulted in short order. Thanks to everyone for civilized discussion! I wish the JS blogs were this informative AND polite.
