KIRO ran the second part of their series last night. This part was around the part of the district audit used by their team that dealt with use of district vehicles and gasoline. I was interviewed and make a statement about being disappointed that the oversight isn't better. This part is as sobering as the first one. (I know that there are a variety of opinions on this series but that the district staff doesn't disagree with many of their findings is telling.)
Here is their written version of the story (but it is truncated so not verbatim). The audit link is embedded in their written version along with a graph about employee overtime.
I still believe we have the potential to be a truly great district if we could get operations in hand. (I hope the new financial superintendent gets this in hand.) It is vital to get operations under control because (1) that allows real focus on teaching and learning and that's where the district should be and (2) every dollar, operational or capital, matters.
