Clark County

Threats of Teacher Layoffs & CCSD Spending Down the Money

In reviewing the data . . . it has been determined that the following administrator in the Clark County School District have been ineffective and failed to do the job commensurate with their pay level.  They have not negotiated in good faith.  They have failed to find a suitable and fair remedy for the teachers of the district.  They have failed to petition for funding our public schools.  They have failed to improve the district.  There is one thing this leadership has done:

Threats of layoffs (union busting), spending down the money.

Here are some places I would suggest Clark County School District make some cuts  in the name of effective financial and product efficiency:

Dwight D. Jones

 

Dwight lost a huge arbitration recently because the district has the money to pay the teachers and should honor legal language that teachers have given up raises, benefits, and other work related items to establish over decades. http://lasvegas.cbslocal.com/2012/05/02/ccsd-plans-for-future-as-arbitrator-sides-with-union/

Here we go again – same arbitration different year, what are the chances that he will win this time? http://www.mynews3.com/content/news/story/Arbitrator-sides-with-teachers-union-layoffs/i8QUFBYj-0ysN_f_rqtruw.cspx

It has been expensive misstep after expensive misstep for this Superintendent.  COSTLY ARBRITRATION IS NOT NECESSARY IF YOU NEGOTIATE IN GOOD FAITH!

Dwight Jones can’t decide if he has money or not with all the recruitment trips and fancy, smancy expenses.  Visit Transparent Nevada and see the fun and weird stuff the CCSD Administrators and school board members like to spend money on.

We might need to be back to basics, rather than make a trip to Hawaii to recruit . . . for the jobs. http://static.ccsd.net/ccsd/content/ccsd-news/pdf/frequently-asked-questions-may-4-2012.pdf  If you take care of the employees you have, you won’t have to take 40+ trips to ask someone to take their place.

Q: Why is the District traveling around the country to recruit new teachers?

A: The District is actively recruiting new teachers to fill vacancies caused by retirements or resignations in hard to fill areas such as math, science and special education. It is our responsibility to ensure the best teachers in the nation have the opportunity to compete for positions in our classrooms.

 Hawaii?  Really?

Would the taxpayer have to pony up if Dwight was let go for poor job performance?  Would the district have to pay another $30,000 to “move” him.  The school board was weak enough to follow outsider’s suggestions last time they hired a new Superintendent; Would they be strong enough to remove an ineffective one?

Unfortunately, Dwight Jones most likely has a severance pay clause or something similar. http://www.lvrj.com/news/new-school-chief-may-get–270-000-under-proposed-contract-104907954.html

Just a thought – the attorney the District hired to defend the losing arbitration – might be useful when breaking a contract with a departing Superintendent.

BOTTOM LINE – DWIGHT HAD PRODUCED NOTHING BUT TURMOIL, UNION BUSTING, AND THREATS.  PLACING STARS ON SCHOOLS KNOWN TO DO WELL HAS IMPROVED WHAT EXACTLY?  THIS HAS BEEN A COSTLY MISTAKE!

When Dwight D. Jones leaves, he might want to take the cast of conservative right wing extremists he has recruited to help him in his layoff campaign – union busting.

-        Dwight hired a CCSD Communications Officer Amanda Fulkerson and her Koch Brother ties and inappropriate remarks to promote union busting are not professional.

-        He hired Eddie Goldman as Lead Negotiator.  Eddie is a known negotiation obstructionist and failed school board candidate. Goldman hasn’t been able to negotiate in good faith yet – HE’S GOT TO GO – if an agreement is to be reached.

- He hired Carlos McDade – we need a $138,650 per year special attorney to bust the union because the district cannot negotiate in good faith.  Wouldn’t it be less expensive to compromise?  http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2011/nov/29/school-district-approves-138650year-general-counse/

THE VERY LEAST THE UNION BUSTING LEADERSHIP AND SCHOOL BOARD SHOULD DO IS THREATEN THESE CHARACTERS WITH LAY-OFFS – JUST TO SEE IF THEY LIKE IT. TEACHERS GET THREATENED ALL THE TIME – JUST TO SEE IF THEY LIKE IT.

Teachers have a rubric ready to grade them all.  We will examine the data – but it looks to be failing in about 100 areas.  We will go over that with them at their next evaluation session – after we try to coerce a confession out of them (using Dwight D. Jones’ Q & A interrogation methods he implemented and used to demote thousands of teachers and principals this year).

I know we can improve the district this year . . . using the Dwight D. Jones method:

Threats of layoffs (union busting), spending down the money.

That gets MINUS FIVE STARS!

  1. Dwighty Jones was not brought into the dstrict to help the schools growth but rather as a closer for these financial bandits that run the district. Having been a teacher that was maligned, injured, re-injured, job stolen away, cause of further disability harm harrassment and other tortures even though a top special ed. teacher.
    We’re not building out nation on the solid concrete education of our students but on a inernal Klan cesspool/ The words honor, decency, ethics, caring, God-loving morality should all be expunged when worshiping “Gold” not “God”. In God we trust, everyone else pays cash!.
