I just looked through the Balanced Scorecard posted on the DCSD website.
don't know if you are aware of it, but it is an embarrassment to the
district. Over 1/3 of the categories have no score listed.
of the scores are just made up. For example; Average Number of Help
Desk calls (tickets) opened per day have these values for Q1-4: 346,
358, 510, 241, which averages to 364. However the reported average is
241. The scorecard also says the district has completed the transition
from cash to accrual accounting. This can not be true because the
monthly financial report is still being done with the cash accounting
scorecard posted to show the progress of DeKalb County Schools is not
complete and contains factual errors. This is why there is a credibility gap with stakeholders.
you first got the job of superintendent of schools you stated several
times, "Don't judge me by what I say. Judge me by what I do." Sir, by
that standard I have to say you are failing. You appear to have fallen
under the sway of the very people who led DeKalb County Schools into the
abyss. Your promotion of the culture of "friends and family" will not
change the direction of the school district.
You failed to implement
your 90-Day Plan in a timely manner. The public has yet to see
documentation showing any progress at all on goals 4 and 5. In fact, the
link to the 90-Day Plan has been removed from the DCSD website.
want change and your actions are giving us more of the same. From the
budget process to the promotion of employees who are not role models,
your actions are not what the stakeholders of the school district want.
