Committee hearings are run by the County Council member who is chair of the committee. Kate Stewart is chair of the audit committee. Will Jawando is chair of the education and culture committee.


And a former MCPS associate superintendent put together the packet for the hearing and runs the discussion.

ESSIE MCGUIRE


Yes, she's COUNCIL STAFF.


And was high-level MCPS staff before. We'll have to see if she utilizes that insider experience to shine light on the issues or to cover them up. My guess, with her being a political operator, would be a targeted amount of the former and lots of the latter. Nice for the council to have plenty of $ not only for their own salaries, but for a relative host of staff, who don't exactly make a pittance.

MCPS has those positions, too, but not the BOE, who rely pretty mich entirely on thoae reporting to the Superintendent and whose compensation accounts for less than 10 hours a week for a skill set that we might hope to be, at a minimum, on the level of a mid-level financial analyst or an assistant school principal. Maybe 3-4 hours a week if you want a principal-level equivalent.


Should be an education and experience requirement to run for Board. At least a Bachelor's if not a grad/professional (e.g. JD) degree plus some years of relevant work experience. Anyone know if MCPS is a bully towards the BOE? Is that the reason the BOE members do not ask questions or press back when given crap info from MCPS? Who here can answer this honestly?

BOE members are told not to bother MCPS staff. That from multiple BOE members.

McGuire already ran the first hearing on Beidleman. She gave Councilmembers nothing and the hearing was a wash.

Journalists - on your mark, get set, go! Look into rampant bullying by MCPS! Of employees. And of Board of Education members who are not MCPS' employees.

Do you have any public sources for this or are we supposed to take your word for it?

Part of the underlying problem. Apple ballot or otherwise, many elected over the past few decades have been perfect fits for this kind of impotence, doing little to establish true oversight and spending their time pursuing niche agendas. MCPS is happy to drag out the latter, even if supportive, because it means less scrutiny in broader or more fundamental areas.

BOE should have free rein to pursue information on their own schedule -- not MCPS's -- to facilitate the job they are elected to do. Any arrangement with MCPS and any Superintendent contract should be stipulating that, at a minimum, and upper level MCPS management should be barred from directing their staff to restrict BOE access to such data, though they should be allowed to de-identify it to preserve the privacy of individuals.

Hopefully, the 3 BOE members elected this year will have a few peers among those not up for election until 2026 to make that the rule.

Smith promoted her when Zuckerman left and she was in charge of ordering PPE and social distancing the classrooms during the pandemic. When Smith left and McKnight installed all her chief buddies, McGuire left and returned to the council, where she worked before MCPS.

Nice try Chris Cram. McGuire was promoted to be one of three associate superintendents to run all of MCPS. In that position she was over the HR department. She regularly sat in on Board of Education closed door meetings to discuss hiring and staffing decisions.

"Today [February 10, 2020], the Board appointed Ms. Essie McGuire, who currently serves as an executive director in the Office of the Chief Operating Officer, to serve as the associate superintendent of operations. Ms. McGuire has been employed with MCPS for three and a half years as the executive director to the chief operating officer. Prior to joining MCPS, Essie spent 17 years as an analyst at the Montgomery County Council."

Also, if you post something that doesn't attack MCPS, and a responding poster accuses you of working for MCPS, that responding poster is probably the "Parents Coalition".

In a country where the requirements to be President are 35 or older and a natural born citizen? I mean, you can choose to vote for someone with higher-level credentials, and there may be good reasons for doing so, but there are plenty of examples of capability/competence absent a college education (even if that would tend to bolster those), and ballot restrictions are pretty antithetical to the idea of free and fair elections in a representative democracy.

The BOE does not have this requirement because it is a public elected position. The same way the being President doesn’t have this requirement. It’s up to people to determine what they want in their elected representatives.

That don’t have to bother staff. They just need to send notice to the Super of the information they want and when. The Super can then bother whatever staff they want in order to deliver what is requested by the BOE. Since it’s their performance that will be evaluated.

No, specifically "Parents Coalition", who hasn't been a MCPS parent for many years.
