Although I support the referendum because the state of our school buildings is appalling, I have to say one thing. I would be a much stronger advocate for this referendum if RUSD was not hiring "Chiefs" at Central Office from MPS. All of these new positions are $100,000 people who came from a District in WORSE shape than RUSD. It does not make sense to hire all these people from Milwaukee....something seems fishy. If RUSD wants us to "get on board," they need to be DOWNSIZING at Central Office, not hiring more people. Hire teachers, assistants, therapists, but all these Chiefs need to go if Dr. Haws wants my support.
