According to the April 29 Sandusky Register, Perkins Schools is going to hire two curriculum directors. Paul Daugherty has been hired at a rate of $40 per hour to serve as curriculum director from grades 7-12. Dean Janitzki is being paid $94,155 to serve as curriculum director for grades K-5. It has been a one-person job in the system in the past.
Paul Daugherty has a history as a sales manager. How does a sales manager write junior high and high school curriculum as well as build facilities programmed for the future? Does he also have degrees in education, as well as construction management? He must be a very amazing man!
I also see the Superintendent James Gunner is prepared to accept Janitzki's retirement in a year. That will certainly be a savings for the school district, as well as the savings you made from the sensationalistic firing of a veteran teacher, Carol Smith, recently. Perhaps, this could be good-bye, Mr. Janitzki. With these two high-salaried people going away, so goes much experience. It will be interesting to see how a sales manager will do writing curriculum, giving helpful hints on how to teach and build buildings.
This all comes down to levies and tax payers dollars and I live in Perkins!
