Did you hear the discussion that was brought up by the minority board members? They asked to know about a new PR firm hired and wanted to know what the scope of work and contract terms were. They couldn’t get answers at that meeting from the majority board members.
Well, the price is $10,000. That’s another $10,000 that does not go to students while the district has a highly qualified communications staff and apparently yet another conversation to which 2 board members were not privy.
Here’s a picture of the $10,000 agreement that will not assist or benefit Jeffco’s 85,000 children:
So, what’s the scope of work for this new PR firm?
“E-Squared Communications Group, Inc. dba SE2 shall provide on demand strategic communication services to Jefferson County School District No. R-1. SE2 and the District shall mutually agree on what services and deliverables are required for each project. The not to exceed amount for services under this Scope of Work shall be [amended to be $10,000…]”
So, what is the scope of work? “On demand strategic communications services” – what’s that and why would it be needed? Can we please have a bit of clarity and transparency?
