I don't know anything about Ms. Sullivan-Viniard and have no opinion of her hiring, but as one of the poor saps who pay the salaries at 106 it is time to prune the very overgrown, overfed tree. There is no reason for a school district to spend over $14,000 per student per year. Maybe she can come in and get the spending insanity under control.
