IISD #10

IISD Admin Lunchroom Chatter #10

Nosher #1: An amazing thing happened after the last executive session of the board and it wasn’t even noticed.

Nosher #2: I know. Usually, the info from an executive session leaks out and the public knows who said what before they drink their morning coffee. Wonder why the info from this session is being kept so quiet?

Nosher #1: That’s simple. Since the subject matter was the Super’s performance and the Floundering Five are like the three Morality Monkeys, they wouldn’t want any disparaging remarks about the Super’s performance to enter into the public domain.

Nosher #2: You’re right. Add to that the two newest board members are both licensed professionals and it makes sense. They wouldn’t overstep the executive session rules. What is regrettable is that members of the Floundering Five, et al missed the boat when they ‘invited’ their family and the usual clueless speakers to comment in the public forum on a subject that wasn’t even germane to the issue at hand.

Nosher #1: I noticed. All their ramblings were about the individual who only requested to discuss items of a performance review nature in executive session. There was never a “complaint” filed as the board agenda incorrectly noted. The Floundering Five sure makes it difficult to see that the district is being run to the highest degree of efficiency if this is how they are going to treat the Super’s performance reviews in the future.

A note from counsel: These “candid” lunchroom conversations have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles. Mark Holbrook
