Delaware: Greek charter school leaders may be taking their heads out of their asses !

Odyssey delays vote to hire former board director with six-figure salary , Delaware News Journal

Odyssey Charter School postponed voting on whether to hire its former school board director as a third administrator with a salary over $150,000 Tuesday night, and parents and teachers are relieved.  

Another Delaware charter school being mismanaged 

Odyssey became mired in controversy over the issue during the summer. After voting not to renew its contract with longtime headmaster Nick Manolakos, the school board hired two new administrators to take his place with no notice to parents and staff. 

When something isn’t broken don’t screw with it ! But yet dip-shit board of directors wanted to taken care of their own! 

Parent Ryan Connell asked the board Tuesday night to not vote without input from parents and teachers. Later, he said, the decision had lacked transparency.

Public schools “including” charter schools belong to the public and hats off to this parent.

Parents worried that hiring Dandolos could cut into the academic budget. Odyssey’s finances already have been stretched by several construction projects.

“This is an absolute waste of taxpayers’ money. It’s not your money to play with,” Ballas said to the board. “We need money invested in the school. We have leaky roofs. There’s that 12th grade school we are building. We need elevators put in.”

Outstanding parents! I think Odyssey’s board of directors need more parent power as board members.

“This is half a million dollars spent at the administrative level with a third head. No charter school has that,” she said. “Everything they do should be benefitting the school, the kids. I don’t see that happening with this decision.”

And where is Delaware Secretary of Education Bunting? And the DOE idiot serving on Odyssey’s CBOC ? Delaware needs serious change in Dover and Governor Carney better step-up and address the fracture leadership at DE DOE.
