    Greeley District 6 names Dreier successor…if she leaves for OUSD

    As contract negotiations apparently continue between Greeley District 6 Superintendent Dr. Renae Dreier and Orange Unified, Dreier’s district in Colorado has named her successor…just in case. With two weeks to go before a Special OUSD Board meeting scheduled for July 22nd to approve the new superintendent’s contract, Dreier still hasn’t announced that she is leaving Greeley. The Greeley District 6 Board however has taken no chances and has named a successor, and will meet on the morning of July 23rd to offer Greeley Deputy Superintendent Ranelle Lang a one year contract to be Greeley District 6 Superintendent.

    The cumbersome process of hiring Dreier away from Greeley began with current Superintendent Dr. Godley announcing at the June 19th, 2008 OUSD Board Meeting that Dreier would be installed at a Special OUSD Board Meeting on July 22nd. This was weeks before three OUSD Board Members (Kim Nichols, Kathy Moffat and Wes Poutsma) went to Greeley on the so-called Dreier Junket to “interview” the town’s leaders about Dreier despite the fact that it was more than apparent Dreier had the OUSD job. Since that taxpayer paid junket, the Greeley Tribune published a poll that had 71% of the 876 Greeley responders answering “No” to the poll question:

    Do you believe Greeley-Evans School District 6 has improved under Renae Dreier's leadership?
