D200 Revisits Superintendent Contract and Pay Increase

Joe Tirio - Tuesday, June 21, 2016

On May 10th, Woodstock's D200 School Board passed a resolution to provide Superintendent Moan a 7% increase and to extend his contract (which had about a year left in it). It is my belief that the agenda was inadequate and I have filed a Request for Review with the Attorney General's office for this and the stated public comment requirement on the agenda "There will be a sign-up sheet for the public to identify their name, address, phone number, name of the organization you represent (if any) and a brief description of the topic to be addressed" which is in violation of an existing Attorney General's binding opinion . This last item (requiring address etc. in order to speak) has been brought to the board's attention previously.

 

The agenda for tonight's meeting includes a revisit to Mr Moan's contract.

 

When I saw this, I launched a poll asking the respondents the following...

 

  • - Should Mike Moan receive a 7% raise? (Yes or No)
  • - What kind of pay adjustment should he receive? ( 5% increase,  3% increase,  Zero increase,  3% DECREASE,  5% DECREASE,  Other)
  • - Your zip code (free text)
  • - Add your comments here (free text)

 

 

 

 

The vast majority of the respondents say that he should either receive no increase or receive a decrease. The most compelling part is the comment section.

 

I sent an email to all the board members and provided them with summary and raw data and have attached the same below.

 

We are asking residents and members of the public to attend the School board meeting and voice your opinions on the matters at hand.

 

When:

Tuesday, June 21, 7:00 PM

Where:
