Letter: Don't disparage Dan

Posted

We Jefferson County taxpayers and parents look forward to school management by new superintendent Dr. Jason Glass. He's friendly and talented, as was his predecessor Dan McMinimee. But let's not begin his tenure with lies. 

A letter to the editor writer wrote on July 6: "for those with a short memory, who disapprove Dr. Glass' salary, the previous board approved a 5 year contract at $280,000 per for Dan." 

His actual salary was $220,000. Jason's is $265,000. Further, she states that Dan was woefully under-qualified to lead a district of this size and had not led any district. 

Facts: The search consultant used exactly the same criteria to recruit Dan as they used for Jason, with Dan scoring higher in some categories. Dan was nationally praised for his achievements as an administrator for Douglas County School District. 

Jeffco District has 155 schools, 86,000 students, 12,000 staff. Jason's former district, Eagle County, has 18 schools, 7,000 students, and a staff of 830.
