CommunityConcerns™: The School Board and the Public Need Vital Information from the State

The Gilmer Free Press

This is public record information from the July meeting of the Gilmer County School Board.

It relates to information that has not been provided to the School Board and the Gilmer County public.

Specifically, the Gilmer County School Board and the public have:

1) Not been provided with the final terms of the purchase agreement for the Cedar Creek School (CCS) land;

2)  Not been provided with accurate cost analyses for site preparation costs at the CCS site including those for the new road, how much it will cost, and how that phase will be funded;

3)  Not been provided with professionally defensible documentation for all cumulative future costs for the County to bear by using electric instead of natural gas for heating the CCS school over its functional life span;

4) Not been provided with disclosure of the amount of money in the County’s school system surplus funds at intervention time, a specific accounting for how those funds were spent during intervention, and remaining funds in the surplus account;

5) Not been provided with an official analysis of future budget implications for the County by sending Gilmer County’s students to Lewis County** and;

6) Not been provided with clarification of why inventory information was not provided for all Gilmer County schools at the July public meeting to include when remaining material will be received.

** It is being said that the first year after Gilmer’s students go to Lewis County we will be funded 100% as if they are still in our system, the second year it will be 50%,  and it will be 25% for the third, but what happens next has not been officially documented. Furthermore, there is confusion regarding whether or not all students who are sent to Lewis County will remain there for completion of high school.

$350,000 for Leading Creek Elementary School Slip Repair

The Gilmer Free Press

The West Virginia School Building Authority approved $350,000 on Friday in emergency funding for the Leading Creek Elementary School being built on the Gilmer-Lewis County line.

SBA Executive Director David Sneed said the earth has moved behind the construction project.

He said the slip began on an adjacent property and got to within 20 feet of the building.

Contractors had to take down some scaffolding.

Sneed said the possible problem did not show up during the school’s design phase.

The emergency funding approved Friday will pay a contractor to dig out the dirt and install a drainage system.

“They’ll be doing some sloping and putting a graded bench in,” Sneed said.

The work is not expected to delay completion of the project.

The school is a regional school project that will house students from Lewis and Gilmer counties.

Also at Friday’s meeting Sneed, who was appointed last week by Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, was sworn-in to office along with two new authority members.

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 ?
