Just received some information that may calm a couple discussions that are currently quite heated.
Regarding the heavily discussed report from the Board of Overseers in the review of the College of Education — Received the following from the University of Louisville’s open records officer:
“I understand the BOT did begin a process of reviewing the CEHD earlier this year, but it has not completed its work and it has not issued a report.”
(We’ll stay on top of that one…)
Regarding the alleged report from Just Solutions — Here’s what the records officer had to say:
“A few weeks ago I identified two retainer-type contracts U of L had with Just Solutions. Each covered a particular period of time. Under those contracts there were some instances of employee mediation, sending people to workshops, other training, and so on. But these did not have anything to do with the College of Education and Human Development, nor did they cover the period of the particular engagement of Just Solutions in the matter of the CEHD. That engagement was a separate matter. There were a few memos related to the CEHD matter, and an itemized invoice for that work, but there was no report made in relation to that engagement.”
