"That became a problem for us this week," said Maske, who said the district had no knowledge of the allegations against Javius prior to his contract signing.

Maske also told us the district was unaware of a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Kentucky, listing Javius as a defendant in a copyright infringement case.
Maske confirmed the district had paid Javius $268,000 for his equity consulting services, including travel expenses, from the beginning of his contract in January 2014 until it ended on Thursday.
Maske said it's rare to find someone with a background in education, as well as a background in educational equity, and Javius fit that profile. Maske said when he worked with CRCSD, he was seen as an expert in his area.
"He helped us look at those underachieving groups, and created something called 'equity walks,' that we have done in many of our schools, as well as creating our district equity plan," Maske said, adding Javius was able to work well with teachers and administrators while he worked here. She said Javius provided professional learning experiences for teachers, administrators, and the district's diversity committee, going into classrooms to examine if there are equitable opportunities for all students.
Maske told us even though the district is no longer working with Javius, it will continue the equity work based on the plan it developed with Javius over the past couple years.
When we asked Maske if this situation could prompt a closer examination of the district's hiring process, she said the district "has policies and procedures for hiring vendors and working with vendors in our district, and we do background checks that are required by the state of Iowa for any of the vendors."

OCHLA - Weekly Policy Brief 11/15/10 - 11/21/10 | [cached]

"We have been focusing on closing the achievement gap for identified groups," said Cedar Rapids School District executive administrator of elementary education Mary Ellen Maske.

The news was received cautiously by Mary Ellen Maske, executive administrator for pre-kindergarten through eighth grade education in the Cedar Rapids school district.

"I'm a little bit guarded because the formula that is included in the waiver that they're going to use for looking at the rankings of schools is so complex," she said.
But Maske did say the rankings seemed in line with the district's belief that many Cedar Rapids schools are improving academically despite what No Child Left Behind results might indicate.
"What we're seeing is that some of those schools are exceptional and high performing because their students are making expected and greater progress," she said.
While the results appear to put Cedar Rapids on favorable footing, Maske is concerned that they will be misinterpreted by the public, particularly for the 11 schools on the "needs improvement" and "priority" list, something she has seen people do for years with No Child Left Behind.
"I think people jump to conclusions and don't have all the information they need," she said.

I think we are always eager to gain another perspective from parents and community members and the information will be used," said Cedar Rapids Executive Administrator Mary Ellen Maske.

If indeed, the decision was made to close some schools, what we would be looking at is determining where the students are and where the staff would be assigned," Maske said.
