ORR Responses

School Supply Budgets: These were frozen after Michael Thurmond became superintendent. Schools were not allowed to purchase anything whatsoever. The result was nearly $1.5 million in ‘savings’.

Julie J. Oinonen Esq. MBA M.Ed of the law firm, Williams Oinonen LLC shared the following documents with us that she received via an ORR for a lawsuit comparing those RIFd since September, 2011 and those hired since September, 2011.

We have included optional views with the data sorted by job title and by pay. We have a lot of work to do on these files yet, but a cursory look seems to show that a majority of the highly paid admin jobs that were supposedly RIFd have been replaced, netting no savings – and in fact, there’s a possibility that the new hires in the CO could be more costly than before the budget cuts.

However, it appears that teachers have not been replaced in any meaningful percentages. We were surprised to see that many RIFd teachers were actually in the hard to replace categories of math and science. It’s all very concerning to us.
