Supt Kafitz Last Day To Be May 31

See Article In Watauga Democrat

He will be paid his fuill salary for 17 of the remaining months of his contract. I can't blame the current school board for taking this route. It is, in my judgement however, a reflection on the previous board - some of whom are still in their positions and one of whom is now a Watauga County Commissioner. That board seemed to think that a contract was only binding on them - not on the employee. They didn't hold the prior supt to his contract and let him leave earlier without any compensation to Watauga. Now, this board is bailing them out with another $186,000 payment to get rid of their mistake.

Let's see what the County Commissioners do with the school budget this year. Will they continue to fund the 3 new administrative positions Dr Kafitz established?

Since we are paying him, maybe he could drive a school bus or something.
