Bossier School Board must do the right thing

"I'm just going to come out and say it — the 'good ole' boy' system, it's alive and well in Bossier Parish."
That's a quote in The Times this morning from Bossier Parish School Board member William Kostelka. He goes on to say "We haven't done this much, and we can't do this behind closed doors, we have to come out and do this in the public . . . I'm not in favor of us hiring a head hunter, but I'd like to see what else is out there, I know you all hear that all the time, but if we don't open it up we're doing a disservice to the taxpayers, and we don't want to send the message that we're doing what we've always done."
Mr. Kostelka and board member Tammy Smith get it right, as do most residents of the parish.
Other board members, however, seem afraid of meaningful change.
Board member J.W. Slack said the district might be sending the wrong message to current employees if someone from outside the parish is hired to do the job.
Then again, that might send just the right message.
"There's one person to me that's stood out and it's (assistant superintendent) D.C. Machen," board member Mike Mosura said. "He's never been afraid to look me in the eye and he's the man that's been in the system for more years than I've been alive. He knows so much about the system and the parish."
And therein lies the problem. The system has become stagnant from years of the good old boy system that Mr. Kostelka so aptly described.
Aggressive new administration is needed to establish procedures and policies that will ensure that every penny is properly accounted for. The board must also tighten up its screening policies on outside contractors.
Any conflict of interest between school board employees, conract or otherwise, must be addressed.
The next school board meeting will be held on Thursday, February 19th. We will post a notice of the time and location early next week.
Please plan to attend and let your feelings be known.
In the meantime, contact your school board member and tell them what you think. Their phone numbers and email addresses are listed here.

  1. There are plenty of folks locally who can do the job. We need someone who knows what is going on here.

  2. What HAS been going on here is the problem. Name one(1)local folk that
    can run this multi-million $ business?

  3. they need to pick someone from outside. this will stop the perception of nepotism.

    if they don't then most people will support a private school effort in Bossier.

    Imagine all the smarter kids going to a private school in Bossier on scholarship.

    They should choose wisely.

  4. The last 2 commenters have it right. The board needs to realize that the people are watching them. They are not accustomed to this, but they need to come to grips with it.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Not only do they not like being watched and held accountable, some board members are testing the public reaction by suggesting that
    D C Machen would be a good pick. Very bad idea in my opinion. We need a CEO type to be super and we need two asst supers. One that is a great educator and the other with
    a vast knowledge of financial matters. Pay them all 250K a year and let them know an annual review
    will be conducted with much scrutiny.

    ReplyDelete
  6. D.C. Machen would send the wrong signal.. PERIOD, he's got as much business sense as a hole in the gound..
    The school board is a business, not only an educational system. As Bossier's growing, now is the time for a lot of new faces....
    I'm surprised Mosura is pulling for him, I'd think he'd be a ring leader for a new.. younger crowd.. Go figure...

    ReplyDelete
  7. Mosura is busy digging dirt on the parents asking questions, how would he have time to know what's
    going on at the school board?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I was surprised at that too. Machen was the Ass't in charge of administration, and all of this stuff happened on his watch.
    Not a very good watchman.

  9. Songbird, if that is what he is doing, it really is same old same old.

  10. Jim,

    You need to see the e-mail from
    Norwood to Rougeau(finance director) asking them to stop paying invoices not signed off on
    by purchasing. Hundreds of thousands of $'s worth of invoices
    I might add.

  23. Hello everyone!
    I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I earn money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
