It has been nearly a year that we have been paying Lance Jackson $30,000 per MONTH to oversee OUSD’s facilities planning division, a post previously held by an OUSD employee (not a contractor) for $150,000 per year. We were assured in February that this was just a temporary situation and were told in May that the position for a reasonably paid, district employee would be filled by the end of June. It is absolutely impossible to believe that there is not a reasonable candidate within the District or without who would be qualified for this position at a reasonable salary. It looks more and more like Superintendent Wilson is more comfortable having his consultant in that position, regardless of what it costs our children. This is not acceptable.
