Dayton Public School board- still dazed and confused

The deck for the 1 to 1 institute recommendations, Harris cut them off before they could explain the critical slide 14. Click to download PDF

Reverend William Harris, who still can’t say my name right, or that of Mohamed Al-Hamdani, flexed his new presidential muscle in his first meeting as commander in chief by cutting off a presentation by consultants who were hired by the board to report back on out 1 to 1 computer implementation. With no time limits on the agenda, just as the consultants were getting into the meat of their report, he ended their presentation- about 30 minutes in. Sheila Taylor was the ONLY board member who had the guts and wisdom to question his actions. The rest sat deaf dumb and mute. Taylor, was clearly in the right- as no board member has the right to speak for the entire board as clearly outlined in OSBA rules.

I cited this statement in my post about the attempt by Mohamed Al-Hamdani to close the illegal meeting about school closings to the public:

As a start, the following guidelines are offered. A good board member:
• Knows that he or she can legally act as a board member only when the board of education is in session. No one person, unless authorized, should speak on behalf of the board.

Harris was authorized to speak for the board- but, when he made the unilateral decision, and Taylor questioned it, the proper move was to call for a vote on the continuation of the presentation by all board members. Harris just shut it down.

The critical slide 14- where the actual steps moving forward were to be discussed is what we missed. It was the main reason I was interested in their presentation. The slide read:

• Establish expectations for usage of eSchoolPlus and Google Classroom
• Connect the use of the Google Application Suite to “Power Up”
• Establish classroom management practices using Google Classroom (post assignments, communications, etc.)
• Discuss grading protocols using Google Classroom
• Create lesson plans that encourage effective small group, collaborative and independent learning options
• Infuse technology into teacher learning
• Support Data Dashboard adoption with building meetings and identify additional formative and summative data elements

They spent $30K for a report, but didn’t want to hear the meat of it. Click to download PDF

This was a $30K contract, approved at a non-business meeting (no public input) on Oct. 30th 2017. You think for $30K they’d be allowed to finish. The key takeaway was we did good at hiring more IT people and building infrastructure, the weakness was that this process should have been run by more than one person (Baguirov gets all the credit) and that it should have had more top level buy in. We didn’t get to hear the rest, so, oh, well.

On to my presentation, Harris tried to tell me that my 3 minutes started when I approached the podium- not when I began speaking. My teleprompter app had flipped on mirror text and I was resetting it.
Here is the text of what I said:

Congratulations to the voters of the Dayton Public School district for selecting four new board members, a majority, to redirect a failing district that has been characterized by a complete failure of leadership to instill confidence in their abilities or the future of the district.

The actions of the previous board and their ineptly chosen Superintendent have led to 20% turnover in staff, an almost completely new central office team, and a shrinking enrollment that has put school building closure on the agenda.

There is unfinished business from last year. The completion of the firing of Rhonda Corr should be foremost on the agenda. How her original mediocre evaluation penned by John McManus was changed to glowing now is incredibly relevant to her termination. We need to know what part remaining board members had in that change, and that they be held accountable.

Investigations on how and why Dr. Adil Baguirov was allowed to remain on the board after I made it clear he didn’t live in the district, and then proceeded to actively push a bus deal through procurement that not only is a violation of board policy- but also a conflict of interest since his private business does business with the vendors in the process.

These are not matters that should be overlooked. They have serious long term implications for the district, as well as set the tone for how this board will differ from the last one and everyone preceding it.

However, whatever hopes the citizens had for change have already been crassly violated, when the last board apparently sanctioned the interim superintendent to join a task force to study school closings without a proper vote to assign members or outline the scope and authority of the task force.

That a board member elect was named co-chair before he’d even been seated to this board does nothing to instill confidence in this new board. That he argued from his position of authority as a board member and a licensed attorney that the meetings should be held in private in violation of the Ohio Open Meetings laws- commonly known as the Sunshine Laws do not bode well for the future of this board.

But, beyond all that, this board met a week ago, and blindly followed the direction of the interim superintendent who crafted the agenda. Again, tonight, we see the same thing. The superintendent leading the direction of the meeting- with no real change in direction- other than to change the way you approve her agenda items to require only one vote instead of several- using simplified a “consent agenda”

Where is your direction to the superintendent on addressing issues of student safety? Besides the riot at Ponitz that the former superintendent tried to cover up, just last week we had a full fledged brawl at the Dunbar Thurgood basketball game. If you want people to send their kids to your schools- they have to feel safe. I see no item on the agenda on this.

Since we’re dropping in enrollment, what steps have you formulated to evaluate the performance of your superintendent and the district PR department that was hired last year by the former superintendent after your purchasing department failed to hire a PR firm in a legitimate, defensible manner? Your current PR people can’t even keep your site up to date. The time of this meeting wasn’t online.

And lastly, we need to have an actual role call to determine which of you support this closing task force meeting in private so voters will know who actually deserves a seat on the dais.

We voted for new people with a promise of transparency- yet, we’ve yet to see it.

By a simple yes or no response from each member, I need a response to that last issue. Failure to do so- will be taken as complicity to violate the Sunshine laws.
Thank you

Their response: nothing. So they all agree that it’s ok to have some task force meet in private to discuss the future of our school closings.

But- wait, then as I got back to the camera, Karen Wick-Gagnet made a statement suggesting there has been no additional movement on the task force and they are still new at this and are working to set a new culture. She didn’t answer the question, but at least acknowledged that they have work to do and are still learning.

Once again, Harris, who has been on the board for more than a few of these, stumbled and voted YES on resignations after July 10. Al-Hamdani meekly followed with a NO, then others followed until Jocelyn Rhynard voted YES- and then as seemed to happen more than a few times, Harris forgot to get Wick-Gagnet’s vote. Then Rhynard realized her error- asked for a re-vote, more confusion as it was sorted out- until we had the right 7 No vote that is normal to not accept resignation under contract.

I softly applauded as they finally got it right.

There was also a question about using a consent agenda by Taylor, who wasn’t familiar with the process. She was right to question its use, and that it should have required a vote to agree to implement the new process, however she couldn’t make her statement clearly. The process allows items that have been covered in the review meeting to be passed together, as one vote instead of separate votes. The new process wasn’t on the review meetings agenda- it hadn’t been discussed, therefore Taylor was correct- it needed to be voted on. They didn’t.
They also failed to vote on the treasurers recommendations, which were included in the consent agenda, but then read separately after they had voted- thereby creating the need for a vote. But, what’s getting it right when you are new at this… optional.

It wasn’t long before Harris once again was forgetting how to count to seven before calling the results of a role call, I quietly corrected them- before they proceeded. He’d skipped Wick-Gagnet.

Next thing you know DPS Media maven Marsha Bonhart is in the back talking to security and then came to ask me to stay silent- and not “shout out.” To which I said, 1) it’s embarrassing that they don’t know what they are voting on. 2) If I was shouting- you’d know it.
She left having assurances that I’d keep to myself as they were almost done.

Once again the board used “New business” which is when you are supposed to introduce issues requiring a vote to make speeches. All were stupid, except Wick-Gagnet’s who talked about how we change culture to change outcome. Worth a listen. Again, wrong part of the agenda, but, we’ll probably have to wait until they hire a proper parliamentarian.

After the meeting wrapped up in a timely 75 minutes, they headed into executive session to discuss a personnel issue and a real estate issue. Spotting  attorney Beverly A. Meyer going in, it’s a good bet that they were discussing strategy for final termination of Corr, ie settlement. Meyer was the attorney who uncovered many of Corr’s shortcomings when she was hired to investigate the work environment of Dr. Markay Winston- who’s accusations were mostly unfounded in her findings.

The board attorney said there would be no announcement after executive session.

2017: the sound and the fury

2017 sucked graphic from esrati.comFor the record: I hated Faulkner in high school. But, if the title fits- so be it.

Last year was a struggle. Ending with me laid up for 4 days in bed with a cold that wouldn’t quit. It was like a detoxification period. Pour fluids in, sweat them out. Binge watch Netflix. Repeat.

For the record: “The Punisher” was better than expected- would love it if someone could tell me what gangster classic film they were paying homage to with the carousel scene. Black Mirror season 4- provocative as ever. Really liked “Kill the DJ” and “Archangel.” Do not watch the new Will Smith movie “Bright” unless you have a high tolerance for bad writing, bad directing and stupidity.

Serious stuff about 2017.

The School Board continued to be insane. Replaced their marketing RFP with an RFQ for the beginning of the year. As I jumped through the idiotic hoops for a second time, I find out that someone I trusted and cared about, betrayed my trust – and screwed me, my mother and the disabled veteran who you’ve read about on this blog. On the verge of losing my business from their need for cocaine, tattoos and Kate Spade handbags- a true friend stepped in and saved it all.

If all of you made an extra effort to buy Pizza Factory Pizza this year, you would be helping me make it back to that person.

In the midst of the betrayal discovery, I released the video about the pepper spraying in the jail of a second inmate in restraints. This video wasn’t as disgusting as the one where Sgt. Judith Sealey tortured Amber Swink by pepper spraying someone fully helpless- but, when the odds are 5-1 it was still bad. While my video did get on 22/45- Cox did their typical dipshit move of ignoring it until they could get un-watermarked video- and ran the story without credit.

The sad thing is, at the end of the year, Sealey was still promoted, and retired on medical disability. The jail is still an embarrassment. Phil Plummer is still Sheriff- (and actually considering running for higher office) and it’s business as usual at the jail- understaffed, unsafe and inhumane.

The school board then voted to award a marketing contract to The Ohlmann Group, despite never having looked at the RFQ on the analysis. They spent a ton of money running a digital campaign along with bad billboards- and then complained about it and the work that was done for them. It did make for entertaining video DPS Fails School Marketing 101. But it was just more writing on the wall of how off the tracks DPS had derailed under the reign of Rhonda. Next up, Rhonda hires 2 African American women to her cabinet to manage marketing and PR– right after her handpicked right hand quit and filed an EEOC complaint.

In the midst of that mess at DPS we did a little digging into the ringmaster of the circus- Dr. Adil Baguirov and found that the carpetbagging board member might also be a little more decietful than meets the eye. On April 5th we publish the research and video: International Man of Mystery: Adil Baguirov – which should have started a chain of events leading to his removal from the school board at the least- and possible ethics and criminal charges at the most. Nothing happened- until I forced his resignation 2 days after election day in November. With Trump complaining about voter fraud and Paul Manafort being prosecuted for money from the same place Adil has been getting funded– I’m still wondering why this hasn’t been a bigger news story.

Of course, the BOE, the Ohio Elections Commission, the Ohio Ethics Commission and the Secretary of State still are playing all kinds of games with zero oversight. When I went to file to run for the Montgomery County Educational Services Center I was greeted with line and verse how I wasn’t eligible to oversee an organization that now has control of direct tax dollars from my district and my city- and serves as a double-dipping retirement home for former Superintendents.

We’ll return to this issue in 2018 and see who has the last laugh.

While piecing my business back together, my disabled veteran friends life falls apart. He stops taking his meds, self-medicates and ends up in jail. I shared this with you in Pink Slip. He’s been thoroughly screwed over and over by a country that he swore an oath to protect. The VA actually rejected his disability filing- saying he didn’t show up for an evaluation, despite the fact that I’d told them over and over that he was currently incarcerated- for his mental illness. This is another fight waiting to happen in 2018- and we’ll see who has the last laugh again.

After many months of piecing together the evidence of what my former friend and employee had done, we had our “day in court”- well, actually the grand jury.  Typically, the joke is you can indict a ham sandwich in a grand jury- since no defense is mounted- just evidence presented. Before I left the room- one juror asked me for a job, another called out as I left- “Don’t worry, not everyone is like her.” Seemed like they were on my side. The DPD Detective went before them 2 weeks later- and must have said something different- because next thing you know- “No true bill.” In Montgomery County, under “Prosecutor” Mat Heck, you can spend 2 weeks in jail for being near a nickle bag buy- but, if you steal enough money to buy a low-end luxury car from your boss, his mother and a disabled veteran- you walk.

This is yet another issue to be revisited in 2018. We’ve already won a civil case against her for the money she stole from the veteran. Thank you to Terry Posey Jr. of Thompson Hine for representing the veteran pro-bono.

In the midst of this mess, a prospective client cold calls my business looking for help. They’d paid The Ohlmann Group a shit-ton of money to grow their business- and were less than happy. We started work at picking up the pieces and fixing the most broken e-commerce site we’d ever seen. Everything Ohlmann had done had to be undone. It’s not the first time, nor will it be the last time that my business is turned to as the Agency of Last Resort- after Ohlmann and others like them have done a client wrong. We also had to resurrect a very popular Dayton events site after another agency (some people who used to work for me mutinied in 2012 started their own thing in 2013) screwed it up. And while these clients made a huge difference in bouncing back from the thief’s damage, the best news came when we were on a winning team for a huge VA contract that will hopefully bear fruit by the middle of 2018, and we won solo our first government contract with the Cincinnati VA to produce some videos.

Since the Dayton Daily news won’t admit that they’ve basically become a click-bait company, this site was here to tell you why it’s now the Dayton Day-Old News– printed in Indianapolis in the afternoon. The skeleton staff that’s left has little institutional knowledge left- and a hatred of this blog. It pains them deeply to admit that there is someone else doing their job, unpaid, better, than they do. I won’t win a Pulitzer or a MacArthur Fellowship Grant for doing this, but, if you appreciate it, donations are accepted. Feel free to nominate me for either award- lol, hell, I can’t even get on a TEDx stage in this town.

August brought the near downfall of DPS as Rhonda Corr single handily pushed the union contract to the last day before folding the day they were supposed to strike. Her incompetence, which we had documented throughout her reign of terror was still being tolerated by the Board who is now under the rule of Rev Robert Walker, who seems oblivious to what is going on around him. Somehow, evaluations that were carefully worded to outline her failings got changed and turned into a sugary sweet rendition of a lie, which as usual, came back to bite them when the lawyer investigating the EEOC complaint un-earthed the real underbelly of the beast, giving the board (with newly added Rev Harris replacing Baguirov) reason to put Rhonda on paid administrative leave pending her ouster from Dayton.

In between, the union settlement and the vote of no confidence in Corr or the School Board by the DEA, this site caused a mini-meltdown on the sixth floor of DPS HQ- when I released just the short cell phone video of a teacher being dragged down the hall. While they tried to sweep this whole thing under the rug, and more people left the district including coaching legend Jim Place, and the distraction of Rhonda’s impeachment process began, we kept digging to finally come up with the full video- and the travel records of a principal who’s gone more than most– and seems to be getting preferential treatment.

So many DEA members have thanked me for the work I’ve done here on esrati.com for the last year and a half, but, while it’s nice to get some recognition, I still feel that I’ve failed the district. My goal has always been to help it get better, and while the new board will be taking over soon, and Joe Lacey did not get re-elected, we still have a long way to go. I’m confident that Dr. Lolli is an order of magnitude better than Rhonda Corr, but, I still believe their are a whole bunch of people in high places who shouldn’t have jobs in this district, and I don’t know if this board or Superintendent has the skills to separate the wheat from the chaff. Judging by the supposed selection of the rookie Rev William Harris to lead this board in 2018, overlooking the recognized talents of John McManus to run a board meeting properly, I wonder.

I still think Rev Walker and Sheila Taylor and even McManus should be deposed on what happened with the Corr evaluations, and the Baguirov investigation (or non-investigation) before being allowed to continue with their duties.

In 2018, I hope to see the following: progressive democrats rally to run for every single seat on the central committee and end the Monarchy of Montgomery County– where friends and family get (s)elected and the rest get dealt with behind closed doors.

The Board of Elections, Ohio Ethics Commission, Ohio Elections Commission and Secretary of States office investigated for unfairly applying rules to un-endorsed campaigns and candidates.

The story of my library eviction will be coming to you shortly, and we’ll hope that the powers that be, do the right thing and my second civil rights case in Dayton turns out to prove me right again. It shouldn’t be this hard to be a citizen in Dayton.

It’s also time to begin to tackle the issues of Reconstructing Dayton, a PAC I started to try to bring change to Dayton- the point on the globe- not the clusterduck of fiefdoms that shouldn’t exist. Almost every story above- has something to do with ad hoc boards working with tax dollars without real oversight by professionals. From the School Boards and the ESCs to the Library, Learn to Earn, the Port Authority and all the “Development” organizations- we’ve got a veritable mess of “local control” that’s out of control thanks to the missing fourth estate.

The Greeks said: scientia sit potentia ~knowledge is power. Gordon Gekko riffed and said “The most valuable commodity I know of is information.

The people of Dayton deserve to be more than mushrooms. They’ve been kept in the dark and fed night soil for too long.

Welcome to 2018.

That which didn’t kill me in 2017, made me stronger. Hang on for the ride.

 

The ripple effect of Corr failure

The upcoming firing of Superintendent Rhonda A Corr from Dayton Public Schools for cause will undoubtedly bring a whole host of other issues, lawsuits, and claims against the district.

The crisis management skills of Interim Superintendent Elizabeth Lolli will be tested daily. When Corr claimed she had no idea of why she was placed on leave, the district should have responded that day with “Rhonda Corr and her attorney’s were informed of the basis of her dismissal for cause, but have not been given the final document. For her to say that she has no idea is just one more indication of her unsuitability to lead our district and her denial of facts and the bending of truth. Our community deserves better.”

That didn’t happen. But, what can you expect from an interim Superintendent on her second day on the job?

What really needs to be examined is how did we get here?

And that starts with the school board who didn’t renew Superintendent Lori Ward’s contract, dismissed treasurer Craig Jones and passed over internal candidate David Lawrence who was later paid to go away.

This is what happens when you let a fox run the hen house.

The fox, was the carpetbagger board member Dr. Adil Baguirov, who ran un-opposed and uninvestigated supposedly at the prompting of existing board member Joe Lacey.

Baguirov’s background has him tied to international lobbyists who were under constant investigation for influence peddling and bending the rules. Much the same thing that he did while on the board. The other 6 board members allowed him to bully them constantly and most of the time, he had his way. This board was complicit in every mistake Rhonda Corr made, mostly because her main supporter, Baguirov was using her as a smokescreen for his own questionable behavior on deals like the sale of Patterson Co-op property to CareSource where he had a conflict of interest and the purchasing of the buses with a 10 year warranty (when the buses are projected to have a 7 year life span). Much of this has been covered previously, but the key questions remaining was why the board, the superintendent and others failed to act when his residency issue was brought up first on April 5, 2017 and then again on election day Nov. 7 2017.

It is clear that he was the key force behind the re-write of Ms. Corr’s annual performance review- where the board was goaded into changing the original responses to glowing because of the optics of a less than stellar review would fit with the awarding of her 3 year contract.

That Board President Reverend Doctor Robert Walker  (the title BS has to stop) agreed to sign both the re-written performance review and the complaint against Corr, says he is as criminally complicit in Corr’s failings as she is, and he should resign immediately.

Other questions that remain is how Corr convinced the board to buy out David Lawrence, in light of the investigation of racial bias brought forward by Dr. Markay Winston. While the investigation didn’t find anything substantially wrong with Corr’s behavior to Winston based on race- it did showcase complete and total insanity in operational functionality by the district leadership under Corr with the oversight of this board. If anything, the charges against Corr, which go entirely against what the boards final performance review said, should be grounds for their termination for cause.

There are still questions about the ousting of Charity Early Principal Peggy Burks, the hiring of Dr. Donetrus Hill at Meadowdale (another risky hire), the rushed contract for athletic director Mark Baker and a host of other questionable actions that were all done with board consent.

The only real option to move past this crisis is to have the remaining board members who are leaving, resign immediately, and the remaining three- submit their resignations to the newly elected board for them to choose whether to allow them to continue to serve.

An independent review panel should be put in place to evaluate every decision made by Corr and signed off on by the board over the course of her tenure, to evaluate processes and procedures that should have been in place or that weren’t followed so as to rebuild trust and integrity into a system that has lost all credibility after this debacle.

This could become a case study for rebuilding a district with best practices in HR, policy and procedure- or it could turn into a nasty web of lawsuits that never end.

The lynch pin in all of this is Baguirov. If Corr pursues a legal defense instead of going away quietly, there will be epic legal bills and a treasure trove of testimony via deposition that will peel back the cloak of confusion that has run amok in DPS for the last few decades.

Word is Rhonda Corr is planning a press conference this morning with her attorneys. Another bad move.

But what would one expect?

And now- an illegal meeting? Baguirov in charge?

An email went out to community leaders today from Adil Baguirov- but not from his board email- from his “American Power Transport” email address- italics is my replacing the email address, name and org name.

Subject: August 8, from 4 p.m. until 5 p.m meeting at DPS

Community leader name,

DPS is preparing to hold a special “closed door” meeting for community leaders. The meeting will concentrate on the current status of negotiations with DPS teachers and DPS’ response and comprehensive plan. It would be good if you and anyone else you feel necessary could attend if your time permits, so that Community Organization is well represented and hears directly from DPS all the facts surrounding this important issue.

Adil

Instead of actually attending the negotiations and pushing the superintendent to settle and to stop the strike, he’s busy trying to sell community leaders on the mistake he made in hiring Rhonda Corr in the first place.

You can’t hold “closed door” meetings- at DPS HQ.

You can’t discuss the negotiations in public.

You can’t really believe that the community has any faith left in this board, or the leadership they’ve hired after a year of total chaos.

Can we see an injunction?

DPS needs to fire the captain before the ship sinks

Every minute that Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt (FUD) reign supreme under Rhonda Corr, the talent makes plans to leave. The board, unwilling to admit their massive failure of hiring Corr, of keeping Baker (while turning Darren Powell into the only fall guy), of the insane Reduction in Force mid-year, the questionable real estate deals negotiated by Adil Baguirov (and maybe Corr?), the botched buyout of David Lawrence (probably their only option for a superintendent), then the failure to investigate allegations that Baguirov didn’t even live in the district, then allowing him to somehow negotiate a bus deal, without action by purchasing (an insane violation of board policy) followed by the resignation and pending investigation into the short lived tenure of Rhonda’s hand picked Chief Academic Officer, Dr. Markay Winston….

and now- the envelope please…. Leaving the Dayton Public Schools

  • Dwon Bush is leaving the district to be an Elementary School Principal in Huber Heights- if her name sounds familiar, it’s because they tried to RIF her, and had a student make a compelling plea to keep her.
  • Vanisa Turney-Crews, an assistant principal at Kiser is leaving to be the Director of Curriculum and Instruction in Huber Heights.
  • Taylor Porter, who was Corr’s initial pick to be the principal at Meadowdale when the fan hit the shan, is going to Westerville to be an assistant principal.
  • Monica Utley, the principal of Fairview- gone.
  • Valerie Herdman, a future principal- gone.
  • Sam Eckhardt a superstar high school math teacher at Thurgood- leaving for Xenia. Math teachers are hard to come by.
  • Ralph Davis – is leaving, one of the key players in the Males of Color program.
  • And, because they haven’t had their new contracts boarded in their new assignments-  there are at least 2 more principals leaving Dayton and 1 more administrator.

The resignation deadline is July 10. There will be plenty more. And while next week there are going to be 2 meetings to negotiate a contract, Corr is the reason that talks got shelved until August.

As long as she’s on top, people are gonna go.

Best case scenario: The board investigates Baguirov, he resigns, Lee and Rountree step down early as they both clearly are tiring of the fight, 3 people who’ve successfully turned in petitions get picked randomly for filling in until the election.

The new board invalidates the Baker contract- fires Corr for cause, fires Hiwot Abraha who can’t get her work done on time, or run purchasing legally, brings back Darran Powell as Head Football Coach (we don’t have time for this sideshow) and gets down on their knees to ask Lawrence to step in as interim.

If they ask nice enough, he may even come in and count part of his buyout as pay until next June.

If they don’t stop the resignations, and get a tentative contract in place before July 7, 2017- or at least have a man with a plan, their may not be enough people to put on a show next year. My guess, is instead, we’ll see that Baguirov has successfully completed his mission- to turn the district into such a clusterduck that the State can come in and turn the whole district into a charter and hand it over to the alternate “school board” Learn to Earn Dayton, and make sure the right people get paid off.

The longer lists of resignations are coming. If you are planning to resign, feel free to contact me to be added to the list. Tell me where you’re going and why if you’d like the public to know what the Reign of Corr hath brought. [email protected]

Update: 1 hour after publishing- have unconfirmed reports of another star principal leaving, and one who is considered a grand dame- may be fed up and turning in her resignation as well if Corr isn’t removed ASAP.
