I am having a flashback from days when there were more chiefs than Indians in the school district. (you remember how that one turned out...program cut for students, teacher positions cut, larger class loads for teachers...) How many new job titles have been added to administration if the past five to seven years? I'll bet the public would be SHOCKED to know.

I have to laugh when I read some of those titles, rhetorical BS to justify inflated salary increases. You'd think the Communications Dept, being adept at communicating, would be well versed at relating to the community..... SMH

SAISD is bloated beyond belief! They spend all kinds of stupid money on administrative salaries & ridiculous titles, while their buildings crumble due to an active maintenance plan & the children are nearly completely bypassed in any COVID-19 prevention. PhDs that live by “stupid is, as stupid does!”
