Niccolò Lolli at the helm
Machiavelli was ruthless.
Machiavellianism is “the employment of cunning and duplicity in statecraft or in general conduct”.
Dr. Lolli announced the latest seating chart on the DPS tilt-a-whirl and analysis by the team behind esrati.com says she gets an A- for strategically solving some district problems.
Some of the people are being set up to fail, by being given horrible assistants, or assignments that should be a hint to leave. Others are being used to help set the stage for the next round of school closings. As Dr. Lolli says- this isn’t a final line-up, because she needs to find some new bodies to fill in the gaps- and she expects some to resign after seeing their new placements.
We are continuing to build the administrative team.
These changes are now being announced. A few adjustments from the last announcement have been made as we continue to make sure we have the best teams in place.

As long as she relies on Dr. Sheila Burton, Marsha Bonhart and doesn’t figure out a true head of operations, she’s doomed.
However, moving Erin Dooley to supervise all the high schools is long overdue. The only proven principal in the district, Dooley can serve as a mentor/troubleshooter/drill sergeant to the principals being thrown into the fires of what passes for High Schools in DPS.
At the upcoming review session, she’s also hiking staff and admin salaries, retroactively, – with the odd explanation: “To better align with increases received by members of our bargaining units, I recommend an increase of 3% to the salary scale for Administrators and District Support Staff, retroactive to July 1, 2017.”
For the bargaining units- you waited until the last minute to sign, throwing the district into chaos? There was no retroactive pay for the teachers. And, you and your former boss, Rhonda Corr had no problem throwing several hundred thousand at Huffmaster for the strike that never happened.
At some point, you are going to say you’re broke and come to the taxpayers with yet another F on your report card- and want more money.
Yet- there were no RFPs or RFQs for research. Just a line item “Contract between Hanover Research Council and DBOE for research services, research reports, survey design, administration and analysis, interviews, benchmarking metrics. Effective July 1, 2018. $42,000 annually”
I’m still waiting for the communications that were used between DPS and the Montgomery County ESC to hire Burges and Burges for their survey. It seems all of a sudden, we’re flush with money.
See a few people who are still on the merry go round. Is that the Griffith that was let go from DPS and fired from Trotwood?
In reference to Gerry Griffith, if it is the same person who was affiliated with DPS some years ago, it is my understanding that he retired from DPS and wanted to be re-hired ( a practice that was employed at the time, no pun intended) but because he had taken a buy-out of his contract, he was not legally permitted to be re-hired. I believe he has been employed by Trotwood and Jefferson Township since, but I could be mistaken.
Caruthers is now Principal at Trotwood High
