The Quiet Disapperance of Dr. Bramucci
The majority of this board meeting recording is the annual "retirement
meeting" where extensive reminiscences of the retiring staff members are
dwelled upon in detail. There is however appears to be a stark
contrast when the staff member held an administrative position under
the "previous regime."
The latest case in point is the quiet disappearance of Dr. Matthew Bramucci, whose "resignation" was accepted without comment by
the board at this meeting.
Dr. Bramucci served as "Director of School Improvement
Processes," a position approved at the April 8, 2014 Regular
Legislative Board Meeting with an annual 2014-2015 salary of
$130,000. Dr. Thomas was the superintendent at the time.
Flash forward to the February 10, 2015 Regular Legislative Board
Meeting when the board voted for the "elimination of the position of
Director of School Improvement Processes effective June 30, 2015 end
So at this meeting, the board voted to accept the
"resignation" of Dr. Bramucci, Director of School Improvement
Processes, effective May 4, 2015 (which was quite convenient since the
position terminates on June 30, 2015).
The question from a taxpayer perspective is: Did we need a $130,000 "Director of School Improvement Processes" in the first place ?
