A friend of mine who attended the School Board meeting last night swears up and down that she saw one of the Boston Consulting Group's consultants at the School Board meeting last night.
At the September School Board meeting, the Board briefly discussed whether to issue an RFP in order to hire a management consultant. As I recall, no decision was made. At that meeting, Dr. Tim Setterlund stated that even though a management consultant would cost millions of dollars (at least five million dollars), he was certain that the funds could be raised from local philanthropists.
No RFP was issued. But BCG is here? How? Are they working for the district? In what capacity? And who's bankrolling it? And with no public discussion?
