The recent vote by the Caddo School Board 8-4 to not offer a new contract to Superintendent Gerald Dawkins has caught the attention of the community.
While it surprised those who casually follow the board, it was no surprise to those who watch the board closely. Dawkins' hiring in 2008 was done at a meeting where no public comment was allowed. The vote that night was 8-4 to hire Dawkins from Michigan over the other finalist from Texas. His first contract was for three years and those years were largely spent dealing with the immediate crisis that was state takeover of up to eight chronically failing schools. So to clarify, Dr. Dawkins was not fired. The Board simply voted to not offer another contract when the current two-year contract expires. There is no need for buy-outs or golden parachute deals. Dr. Dawkins will retire from Caddo having served five years, which is longer than any of the past four superintendents, and longer than the three-year average term of a large system superintendent.
