Dansby’s Fate Decided Tonight
The school board will have a special meeting at 5 tonight to determine the contract status of Superintendent Walter Dansby. His contract is the only item on the agenda, which was posted on Friday.
The superintendent gets an annual review from the board, and is eligible for a $10,000 bonus for a satisfactory performance. His contract expires in August 2016. The board completed his evaluation weeks ago, but neither Dansby nor members of the board have publicly commented on it.
The matter has been hanging over the district since February, when the board began discussions on Dansby’s evaluation. The board tabled its March vote, and has been eerily silent on the matter ever since.
That silence will likely be broken tonight.
