Column as I see ’em …
It was certainly nice to see the school board and its superintendent kiss and make up Thursday night when the board gave Gene Schmidt a one-year contract extension.
That doesn’t mean, however, that a myriad of questions still don’t exist about their not-public-enough quarrel over the past six weeks or so.
Nor does it explain some comments made during that quarrel by the school board president and a promise that has yet to be fulfilled by the board secretary.
For those just joining this soap opera, Schmidt turned in his resignation following a closed-door performance review that resulting in him saying he no longer had the support of the full school board.
Being that the board has the (questionably) legal authority to vet the superintendent in private, the public immediately began demanding answers, including who among them no longer supported the person credited with a host of accomplishments during his tenure.
