Gabe Devono——Transparency, Accountability, and Full Disclosure Or Business As Usual?

The Gilmer Free Press

Gilmer County still staggers from the State’s surprise seizure of our school system.  Existing law prevented disbanding of our elected school Board, but the State used tactics to do it anyway.

Who was responsible for how Gilmer County was treated by the State? In America there is a concept that terminal responsibility for operations of bureaucratic organizations rests with top leadership. That suggests that actions following the State’s seizure of our schools resulted from the State Board of Education’s orders, carried out dutifully by the superintendent it installed.

The State Board is presided over by Mrs. Joseph Manchin.  Even Governor Tomblin and members of both houses of the WV Legislature lack control over that Board. The alternative explanation for what happened to us is that the State Board authorized the superintendent to act autonomously.  Either way, the State Board cannot escape responsibility for causing our grief.

Some of the State’s actions following its seizure of Gilmer County’s schools are addressed below. The purpose for providing the information is to enable citizens to make up their own minds regarding responsibility for what occurred in the County.

The Gilmer Free Press


► Strict information control was imposed immediately after the State’s seizure to make it difficult if not impossible for the County’s citizens to keep informed of the State’s activities with our school system. This information clamp established the State as an adversary, not a partner to work in tandem with the County for school system improvements.


► All our Board’s authority except responsibility for approving field trips and participating in disciplinary hearings was voided.


► Our Board members were not allowed to have items on monthly meeting agendas to enable important concerns to be discussed to prevent citizen access to information, and our Board was forbidden to make motions and to vote on important issues affecting our schools.

The Gilmer Free Press


► The State assumed absolute control over spending of the County’s school budget without any local oversight.


► Our Board was refused any say in personnel decisions including hiring, riffing, promotions and reassignments within the school system. Some decisions made by the State have potential for decades of ramifications.


► Secrecy was imposed by the State for its dealings with internal school issues including alleged improper behavior by a male teacher with a school boy. This secrecy eroded public confidence that decisive measures will be taken by the State to deal with serious problems and to help prevent similar ones in the future.


► The public hungers for leadership changes at the high school where there have been chronic problems.  The superintendent seems to protect the leadership to contribute to the public’s belief that the preferential treatment originates from personal allegiances instead of being committed to doing what is best for the County.


► Explanations to the County were withheld regarding why a principal was hired who worked less than one month to remain on the payroll for the full extent of a contract. This blunder resulted in taxpayers paying for the same job twice when another principal was assigned.


► The State allowed a no bid contract for the Cedar Creek School to a firm that had performed questionably with work at the Linn bi-county school.


► The State failed its oversight responsibility for proper planning to ensure that cheaper natural gas would be used for the Cedar Creek School and the Linn School. This failure did not result in a full disclosure of projected increased costs for taxpayers over the life time of the two schools.


► The architectural firm the State hired for the Cedar Creek School failed to get a required federal permit. That mistake caused the County to be denied State school building money for the 2013 funding cycle. This delay has potential for severe financial consequences for the County should there be an expensive facility expense at an elementary school before the new school is opened.


► The State failed its oversight responsibility to ensure that the site study for the Linn School was adequate to cause potential for a landslide to be undetected and a construction delay occurred when the slide occurred.


► There was failure for the County to be informed of how much money it might have to pay for the landslide to be fixed and to pay for a reported purchase of additional private land it affected. Even if Gilmer County does not have to pay, the costs will be borne some way by WV taxpayers unless the architect pays.


► There was failure to officially inform the County how much money will reportedly have to be spent to purchase additional land at the Cedar Creek site because of inadequate planning by the same architectural firm that performed work for the Linn School.

The Gilmer Free Press


► The State resisted in informing our Board precisely how much money it controls for the 2014-15 year versus the State under terms of a so-called partial restoration of the Board’s authority for finances. What is the valid reason?


► The State expected our Board to approve actions that had already happened and the State had permitted, as if they were future actions. That suggested to citizens that our Board had potential for legal vulnerability if it falsified official records with the State’s prompting.


► There has been refusal to have informative news releases to keep the County informed of decisions affecting our school system.  Additionally, this failure had a harmful effect on our County Board. When questions were asked by citizens, typical responses that followed were that the information was unavailable from the State. That type of response made it seem that our Board members were either slackers as elected officials or worse yet they knew answers while collaborating with the State to avoid transparency.


► The State claimed that the site chosen for the Cedar Creek School was the only one suitable within our 217,600 acre County.


► Citizens were not informed of fees paid to the architectural firm for the Linn and Cedar Creek schools for original plans for using natural gas and the change of plans for not using that energy source. This caused questions to be asked if the firm was paid twice for design work when it should have been done correctly the first time if proper up front planning had occurred.


► The State failed to disclose purchase agreement terms for the Cedar Creek School site although Dr. Phares, the WV State Superintendent of Schools, promised that it would be made available to the County.


► Citizens were angered to contribute to widening distrust of State government when word circulated that they must bear an unreasonable price the State secretly agreed to pay for the rural and undeveloped Cedar Creek School land.

The Gilmer Free Press


► The State participated in the process for the initial selection of the auction barn land for a new consolidated school while a member of the County’s Comprehensive Educational Facilities Plan Committee had an immediate family member with potential for personal financial gain had a school been constructed at the site.


► The State failed to inform the County have many children will be sent to Lewis County to attend the Linn School and long term financial consequences for the County were not disclosed.


► There was failure by the State to document how much better our schools are now than they were when the State seized control. The prevailing belief, based on reports of the State’s shaky management history in counties with seized school systems is that for any progress that may have occurred here, our dedicated and competent school administrators, teachers, and support personnel deserve full credit, not the State.


► Citizens understand that the County’s reserve money will be used to build the new Cedar Creek School, but the State has withheld information for the potential financial impact of using that money intended to be available to respond to emergencies.


► When the State seizes control of a County’s schools   enormous sums of money are spent on building programs without any local checks and balances, and someone makes lots of money. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to trace the money trail in Gilmer County and elsewhere where school systems are State controlled?


Mr. Gabe Devono cannot reverse everything that happened in Gilmer County under State control, but he has a clear choice. He either continues with business as usual to proceed with the State’s pattern of conduct or demonstrates that he is a fair administrator who will treat the County with full respect and transparency. The answer will be known soon. The choice is up to the State Board of Education assuming that our future treatment depends on orders Gabe Devono receives from that appointed body. A welcomed new start would be for the State to solve its communications problems while dispelling harmful rumors that may not be fact based.

Questions and Rumors Re: The new Lewis County School at Linn


Rumors Abound:  Williams+Shriver & The Big Slip & Gas vs. Electric


Can anyone put the rumor mill to bed ?

Who is responsible for the alleged issues,  if in fact, there are some ?


We have been hearing for some time now,  that natural gas as a utility source is not available.  The Lewis County school will be all electric ?


Rumor has it that school was designed for gas,  but had to be redesigned for electric ?


Again.  Who is responsible ?  More than one person or firm ?

Being under intervention by the WV Board of Education,  are they to foot the bill ?


Driving past the school site,  its pretty obvious there is a earth stability issue above the building site ?


Who has the responsibility for that ?  Its rumored that additional acreage must be purchased ?  True ?  False ?


When a contract is negotiated with the architectural firm, would it not be their responsibility for core samples and ground slips ?


If the rumor mill is correct,  this building project may turn as a ‘fool’s folly’  ?  One has to wonder.


If these rumors are correct,  who pays ?

The taxpayers ?  The designer ?  The builders ?  The contractors ?  The State ?  Who ?

CommunityAlert™: STATE SNOOKERED THE COUNTY AGAIN…..

The Gilmer Free Press

STATE SNOOKERED THE COUNTY AGAIN
BY HIDING SCHOOL BUDGET INFORMATION FROM THE PUBLIC

According to reports from the School Board meeting on May 19, 2014 the State stonewalled by attempting to impose strict secrecy for the part of our school budget it controls next year.

Another cause for alarm was that a typical last minute stunt was pulled by the State to try to ramrod the budget though at the last minute by limiting time the Board and the public had to review it and to make comments before its submission to Charleston.

The State’s conduct is outrageous.  It seized our school system, our money, and now it wants to keep how much of the budget it controls secret from the people. All the School Board bulked to refuse to approve the budget as the State wanted.

A request was made for the State to be open with the part of the budget it controls for next year compared to the part the School Board controls.

This example of courage occurred to promote total transparency for what the State does. It is unknown what the State will do about the impasse.

Another disturbing piece of information learned is belief that $1,000,000 will be borrowed toward the total cost of the Cedar Creek School for the County (assumed) to have to pay back without any approval by the people.

A member of the audience reported that because of poor planning by the State there is a new surprise.

Another 3.5 acres of land at the site will be purchased for an undisclosed price. When will it end?

Dr. Phares promised us that all details for the purchase agreement for the land would be forthcoming.  That did not happen when Mr. Blankenship broke in to say that the information would be released at the proper time.

We learned too that because of a planning foul up, unless plans change the Cedar Creek School will be all electric.

This blunder will cost the County untold sums of money in the future when our population is dwindling with loss of children from our school system.  This is critically important.

To begin with, it was learned from reliable outside sources that it is estimated that 100 students will be ripped away from Gilmer County to attend the Linn School in Lewis County.

Because Gilmer County is funded with use of a State formula based on student numbers, and about $4,700 is paid to us for each student, this amounts to a $470,000 annual loss for the 100 students.

The total money loss from the State could worsen even more over time if student numbers continue to decline from normal losses.  Loss this past school year approximated 40 students.

Consider this for another shocker. When the Linn School opens the County will be paid for the 100 lost children the first year, the next year that will be cut to 50% for a loss of $235,000 and the third year another reduction will occur to reduce the original amount to 25% to be $117,000 representing a net loss of $335,000 per year! It is assured by the State that if Gilmer’s lost students return to the GCHS for the seventh grade and beyond, the State formula will kick in to compensate the County.

Remember when there was intense pressure for good citizens to pass the recent excess school levy and we were warned that if it failed immediate needs of students would go unmet?

Remember the threats and scare tactics to Gilmer citizens if the levy did not pass?

Guess what?

Now we understand that some of the levy money will be used to build the Cedar Creek School!
