Janey saw firsthand yesterday the dilapidated inside of Coolidge High School but said he could do little more than add it to the list of schools that also need renovation. 'We don't have enough money to go around,' he said during a tour of the school, in the 6300 block of Fifth Street NW. Mr. Janey was joined on the tour by Council member Adrian M.

"D.C. Public Schools Superintendent Clifford B. Janey yesterday started in on his pledge to fix what he described as disappointing management practices by hiring a corporate executive to work on contract procurements - free of charge. Exxon Mobil Corp. consultant Capers E. Brown was one of five new hires announced by Mr. Janey, who officially took over the school system in mid-September. Mr. Brown will serve as the school system's executive consultant for contracts and acquisitions while on loan from Exxon Mobil Corp., which will pay his salary. He said his main goal is to 'optimize and maximize' opportunities to improve procurement practices. Mr. Janey said that the hirings are just part of his plan to correct "major deficiencies" and that more changes can be expected by next month. He also said the new employees will cut the number of administrators reporting directly to him." Strauss, Valerie, "Four Outsiders Among Six Janey Hires," The Washington Post, B-01, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A49721-2004Oct20.html. "D.C. School Superintendent Clifford B.

"In a recent interview with The Washington Post, Mr. Janey also declared that he was 'enormously disappointed in the lack of sound management policies.' Expressing particularly keen dissatisfaction with inefficient food services and the poor condition of many of the system's buildings, he promised that there 'will be some dismissals in response to some of these audits that have just painfully pointed to irresponsible actions.' He said he is also considering outsourcing to private contractors 'those operations that affect the quality of life of students' until the system can get its act together. Mr. Janey is saying the right things.

"Clifford B. Janey, the District's new school superintendent, said yesterday that he is considering closing underutilized schools, giving students more time to graduate and hiring a private company to temporarily run such operations as facilities, purchasing and food service. Janey, the school system's fifth permanent leader in nine years, mentioned those possibilities during a wide-ranging discussion with reporters and editors of The Washington Post. He cautioned that improvement will not come quickly to the long-troubled system, and he was unsparing in his assessment of its deficiencies. At a luncheon with Washington Post reporters and editors, new D.C. Superintendent Clifford B. Janey outlined his position on key issues regarding the troubled system: 'I've been enormously disappointed in the lack of sound management policies,' he said, adding that he was particularly upset about the shabby condition of many school buildings and the inefficient operation of food services. 'There will be some dismissals in response to some of these audits that have just painfully pointed to irresponsible actions on the part of certain staff.'" "D.C.

Plan," The Washington Post, A-19, http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A63214-2004Sep30.html. "The District's school system will choose between academic standards used in California and Massachusetts to define what skills and knowledge students in each grade should have, education officials announced yesterday. The adoption of learning standards comes as the city is preparing to replace the Stanford 9 standardized test this spring with TerraNova, a test that officials said will allow educators to better assess gaps in students' knowledge. Clifford B. Janey, who last month became the city's fifth school superintendent in nine years, said he will choose between the two states' standards and make a recommendation to the Board of Education by the end of this month.

"D.C. schools Superintendent Clifford B. Janey plans to adopt new grade-by-grade student learning standards this week, one of several steps he quickly is taking to tackle problems that have left the school system among the worst-performing in the country. Janey, who assumed the job Sept. 16, said he will convene a meeting of teachers, principals and outside experts Thursday at Georgetown University to reach a consensus on which of two sets of standards should be selected. Learning standards describe what students in each grade should know and be able to do in core subjects. The D.C. school system has such standards for math and reading but has implemented them unevenly. Janey said the new standards would be more rigorous and uniform and would result in the school system's 65,000 students, who now take the Stanford 9, taking a different standardized test."

Editorial: "Clifford Janey yesterday began his first full week as superintendent of D.C. Public Schools (DCPS). His salary of $250,000 barely met the one-third mark that stakeholders had tossed around earlier this year in hopes of luring a top-drawer candidate. Then again, Mr. Janey did not make the initial short list of candidates - all of whom eventually turned down the overtures made by city officials. While those declinations spoke more to how the city handled its business than to the qualifications of the individual candidates, the Janey administration will nonetheless be tested on the strength of the new superintendent's efforts to reform a troubled school system. . . . The appointment of Mr. Janey appears promising, mostly because of his strong background in curricula and what he achieved in Rochester. To better acquaint himself with DCPS, Mr. Janey promised to visit each of the city's traditional schools. In fact, he already has begun what surely will be a taxing discourse. But we certainly do not want to appear to discourage Mr. Janey; we do want to encourage him on his path of reform.
