Letter: Change in leadership needed in D-86
To the Editor: On March 1, I requested from Superintendent Nick Wahl copies of any documents prepared by financial advisers, our business office, law firm, or anyone else who makes any kind of financial analysis for the newly approved amendments to the Collective Bargaining Agreement for Teachers' Contract.
One week later, March 8, I received an email from Wahl in regards to my request. He referred me to the meeting agenda of Feb. 25, items XV & XVII. Item XV was adjournment to closed session; Item XVII(A) is, "Ratification of Teacher Contract Settlement."
In short — given an entire week, Wahl was unable to provide me with a single document, from within the district or from any of its outside consultants, analyzing the terms of the contract's financial impact on District 86. The review of terms in closed session is a confidential communication, but I can say it was unaccompanied by any documents (except the revised agreement itself), nor did it attempt to analyze in any detail, the financial impact to the district.
