It is official that Dr. Brooks is leaving West Clermont. The board voted this evening to move forward without him and approved new job descriptions for a new administrative team. One that may in fact come with an organizational chart to, well, organize a district in disarray. After a myriad of cuts and levy defeats, perhaps a new team will be able to do what other administrators were not able to convince the district to do: Get its act together.
There were many administrators present and on display as the internal jockeying for new positions has already begun. The next six months will very well determine the outlook of West Clermont and whether or not the message from the public has been received. Whether or not the district chooses from outside the “Insider’s Club” will be interesting to watch. Place your bets now folks, as the window closes soon.
The district also paid respect to the incident in CT. A friend brought this article to my attention and it is highly recommended you read it in the context of what just occurred.
