The Santa Fe school board voted 4-1 Tuesday night to extend Superintendent Joel Boyd’s contract for two years and give him a $9,000 raise, bringing his salary from $171,000 to $180,000.

Boyd said he will use the salary hike to create a scholarship fund for economically disadvantaged students.

    Board President Steven Carrillo says of single-year contracts that they're “telling the person you are hiring that you have no confidence in them whatsoever.” Well, isn't that what you're doing to every other contract employee at SFPS, including every teacher?

    So Board President Steven Carrillo thinks the “idea that there is a conspiracy of all of us in some way to dupe the public … is abhorrent and extremely destructive to us as a public board,” but he won't open contract negotiations like this to the public, or even release the contract after the fact? Nothing to see here, pay no attention to the school board behind the curtain.

    I agree whole heartedly with Mr. Wikle. My questuon is ... Mr. Carrillo if this is a public board, where was the public input?

    [Wikle] "took issue with a contract extension of more than one year for Boyd, since all other school employees are hired on a year-to-year basis." Then . . .

    “No one who is putting forth a plan of change or reform would commit to one year,” Carrillo said. “What you are doing is telling the person you are hiring that you have no confidence in them whatsoever.”

    Mr. Carrillo's remark insulted hundreds of school employees who make about $250,000 less than Boyd. It leaves one to think that only those who are paid high salaries are worthy of confidence.

    Mr. Wikle appears to be the only voice of reason on the SFSB; the others are working diligently to "dupe the public." If it is so abhorrent and destructive as Mr. Carrillo says, they are not under any sort of contract--long term or one year--to serve one more day. The governor is probably looking for people to work on her various campaigns.

    School Board President Steven Carrillo said, “This idea that there is a conspiracy of all of us in some way to dupe the public … is abhorrent and extremely destructive to us as a public board.”

    As further proof of the school board's honest intentions and commitment to transparency for the public it serves (and taxes-at-will through increased property-tax raises without a public vote); they refused to release the superintendent's contract, including its "large compensation package."

    Well played, players. You're ready for prime-time politics after a few more years milking your current gig of sucking at the public teat.
