HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Superintendent Casey Wardynski and the Huntsville school board on Saturday took another step toward a drastic reorganization of the city school system by approving the contracts of several outside consultants who will oversee district business operations on a temporary basis.
The consultants were hired in a special Saturday session so they will
be in place by Thursday's board meeting.
The board also approved a contract with Lean Frog, a Huntsville-based
business solutions firm owned by Byron Headrick, one of the consultants
who reviewed the district's business practices. Headrick will work with
the district through the end of the fiscal year -- and be paid a
maximum of $152,000 -- to help develop its new business practices.
