In Firing Carla Ranger, DCCD Official Cites "Budget Constraints and Reorganization"
Still no word from Dallas County Community College District officials concerning their decision to terminate Carla Ranger's contract, thus ending her 20-year tenure with DCCCD. But late last night, the Dallas Independent School District board trustee did post to her blog her short-and-sweet termination letter, which, she writes, was hand-delivered on Monday with no further follow-up.
According to the letter, written by DCCCD Associate Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs W.G. Garland, Ranger's position -- district director of educational partnerships -- is being eliminated "as a result of budget constraints and the reorganization of the Educational Affairs Division." And that, more or less, was that. Ranger offers little comment, except that "there was no prior discussion or any indication of any problem," and that "I was pleased to have followed in the footsteps of Dr. Mamie McKnight into this position upon her retirement."
