DISD's Lone Ranger
Dallas Independent School District board trustee Carla Ranger can't understand why the district doesn't make superintendent Michael Hinojosa's contract available online. Because, see, the Texas Administrative Code says that really oughta be available to anyone interested in taking a peek at the document. And she lists 10 other Texas ISDs that already do it, among them Austin. Writes Ranger on her blog this morning: "Dallas ISD is a public institution and this information should be made immediately available to all citizens without cost or restriction. Board policy should be revised to require all future Superintendent's contracts and all past contracts since the year 2000 to be placed on the District web site." Ranger's also the lone board member against extending trustees' terms. --Robert Wilonsky
Update: With much thanks to Kent Fischer and DISD spokesman Jon Dahlander, turns out the super's contract is buried in this pile of documents -- beginning on Page 21.
