Don’t even bother to pay teachers

Here’s the best part. LAUSD contracted the new pay system against the advice of the union. They contracted the new system NOT to the lowest respectable bidder, but to a company with a history of failures and a high price tag, simply because someone greased someone else.

Pay teachers now
In another sign of the LAUSD’s dysfunction, its payroll system has gone haywire for 13 weeks.
May 1, 2007

This is week 13 that the famously dysfunctional district has failed to pay its 78,000 employees properly. Instead of regular checks for predictable amounts, teachers, guidance counselors and support staff have been receiving too little (one cent in at least one case), too much ($5,000 in another) or no check at all. That’s 13 weeks of juggling mortgages, car payments and utility bills.
At healthy organizations, there are consequences for failure. The LAUSD is not a healthy organization. The district acknowledged as much after a report it commissioned last month lambasted its own confused operations and inability to solve problems identified many times before.
