I am disappointed in the Brevard School Board and an ill-advised decision they made in the process to hire our next Superintendent. They have wasted $14,000 for one of two reasons: their staff is incompetent or it can’t be trusted.
The board hired the Florida School Board Association to process the candidates’ applications for Superintendent. Why? Some of Brevard’s top staff would be applying for the job.
Either the board did not trust the HR staff to process the applications fairly or they can’t be trusted to be competent…or did they get bad advice?
All staff would have done, all the FSBA is doing, is compiling the list of applicants and their submissions for the board. There is no evaluation of candidates or interviews. It’s clerical work pure and simple. There are no interviews, recommendations or evaluations.
This is $14, 000 up in smoke. Old habits die hard, and not nearly fast enough.
