Don Kennedy, the former CFOO of Seattle Public Schools was kicked out on his ass a year ago. The School Board softened his landing with six months' severance, but now we know (from this Seattle Times article) that he has landed in clover as the interim operations chief in Bridgeport, Connecticut. At $900 a day, and assuming a 260 day contract, that's $234,000 a year. Any questions? He'll have to get back to you on that.
Dr. Goodloe-Johnson, as we know, has been made the superintendent of the state-run district in Michigan which is made up of all of the "failing" schools taken over by the state. I have no doubt that she got that position based on her analogous success with the Southeast Education Initiative here in Seattle. In case you're wondering, Dr. Goodloe-Johnson really did declare that effort a success.
Dr. Goodloe-Johnson rather famously (or infamously) denied any responsibility for the scandal in the RSBDP saying that she couldn't be expected to know what was happening three levels below her. Let's remember that principals were also three levels below her (MGJ -> CAO -> Exec Dir -> Principal).
For Mr. Kennedy, not only was Mr. Potter just two levels below him, but the scandal revealed the truth about how the budget was written - a truth that was completely different from the story he told the Board and the public. He spoke of reviewing it carefully for savings; he spoke of a top-down process driven by district-wide priorities. The truth was a bottom-up process in which program managers submitted budget requests and got them approved. Silas Potter asked for and received $800,000 from the capital budget and got it just two years after his budget was $100,000, when his work didn't qualify for the capital budget, and while the District had a dreadful maintenance backlog.
