So I had followed up on Dr. Enfield's e-mail to Charlie and me about the NTN contract. She did answer several questions (but ignored some others). Hence, the follow-up. Now here was my most burning question:
"So there is an signed "agreement" between SPS and NTN but not a contract. This seems quite odd. The Board voted on NTN two Board meetings ago; was that to agree to NTN being the provider of these services but not what specific services? So then the big question: When will there be a signed contract?"
And here is her answer given today:
"Thank you for your comments/questions related to Seattle Public Schools’ contract with NTN. A lawsuit has been filed related to this contract. Given that litigation is pending, we are not able to answer specific questions.
Dr. Susan Enfield"
I doubt that she will be able to stave off anyone seeing the final contract when it is signed. So I'll let the Board know that. You can't hide behind a lawsuit in order to not answer questions especially the most basic one: when can we see the signed contract?
See, it goes both ways. If I can't see the signed contract because of the lawsuit, they don't get to open the STEM program because their contract is in dispute because of the lawsuit.
