Say Yes and Cascade question low community participation in forums and surveys...

Cascade consultant and Say Yes  president disappointed with low community response to forums and surveys in the superintendent search process.

Yet some say the forums were prepared hastily and the surveys too long , while the superintendent one not relevant.

And questions of a conflict of interest about Cascade and Say Yes conducting the search for a superintendent, while negotiating a "non-negotiable" contract for themselves with the district to operate their after-school programs continues to linger in the community. Also, others have questioned the superintendent search process as superficial because the community has been kept out the candidate selection phase . Cascade informed the reason is confidentiality.

"Our participation at community forums has been less than we're comfortable with," Gene Chasin, chief operating officer of Say Yes, told the School Board. "Survey results have been lower than we're used to. We need to look at the reasons for this.
