Dear Goffstown School Board:
Now that we know Stacy Buckley has nominated all administrators for renewal and you have voted in the affirmative to accept the same, it is your responsibility to intervene on behalf of the staff and students at Mountain View Middle School. Direct the superintendent to reassign Jim Hunt, principal, to serve out his contract elsewhere.
It was interesting to see that Jim Hunt attended the April 2, 2012 Goffstown School Board meeting, taking notes. It was also interesting to note that all administrators were awarded a raise except for Jim Hunt.
Have you finally realized that lack of oversight of the superintendent creates tyranny in the system? Former staff, who have moved on from Goffstown, look for public announcements when Ms. Buckley or any of the other SAU staff attempts to move on from the Goffstown School District. They do what they feel they must do in response to said public announcements. Consequently, I predict Ms. Buckley, et al will remain in the Goffstown School District for many years to come despite their efforts to attain employment elsewhere.
Will you begin to do your job and provide oversight to the superintendent and exert local control on the system? I am sure the towns of New Boston and Dunbarton are eagerly awaiting an answer to that question. The answer will be revealed based on the location of Jim Hunt's position next year. Make a wise choice.
