Subject: GPS - Spending $90K for strategic Direction
Here’s the meeting packet for 11/9. You’ll see near the end, pages 75-78 or agenda item 7.12 that GPS in intending to spend $90K to a company called “Hein Sight… before the fact.” To provide a “strategic direction” to the board and administration based on the GPS mission, vision, and values. As if this isn’t enough… with no information as to what Hein Sight is to accomplish, the next proposal is for a multi-year contract with Hein Sight to provide the very same services we know nothing about. No contract to consider, nothing to look over.
I highly recommend that anyone who is interested to see how $90K of tax-payer money is being paid for “strategic direction”, you might come on down and ask some of those questions of the school board and move that the board table a final decision on this matter ‘til more information is made available. Perhaps the paper could do a story on what is expected with the $90K purchase.
This deal was brokered between school board member Adelaida Severson, Dr. Dave Allison-Superintendent, Clyde Dangerfield Esq. Assistant-Superintendent, and other GPS former employees.
I’m left scratching my head wondering why we have a lame-duck school board members recommending approval for expenses to provide strategic direction. Shouldn’t at least one other board member who is remaining be a part of this effort if for no other reason than to give continuity to the overall effort? As it stands, after January, strategic direction will seemingly be owned by GPS Administration and Hein Sight. And I thought this was something the school board was supposed to do?
