Brock to maintain $114,232 principal's salary as maintenance director

Walton County school officials note despite rumors, no teachers have been terminated from school

Posted: Sunday, October 7, 2012 12:00 am | Updated: 10:36 am, Wed Oct 10, 2012.

The Walton County Board of Education voted 6-1 to approve the transfer of former Loganville Middle School principal Russell Brock to director of the maintenance department at the system’s central office.

Brock took over the position — which resulted in no change to his salary of $114,232.37, requiring only a change of the job title on his contract with the school system — following his request to leave LMS behind. According to school officials, no teacher positions have been terminated at the school this school year.

    This county has been doing things like this for years and years. They have constantly allowed people in high positions to make huge mistakes and fly under the radar by asking them to resign or transfer instead of calling for true disciplinary actions. Sadly, the ones who are truly making a difference in the county-the teachers- are being abused and bullied daily by those officials that are making the BIG BUCKS. I have several degrees under my belt and this news makes me want to dump it all and go in in field of maintenance to make what Brock is making. WOW!!! I was born here, grew up here, raised my children here, and allowed them to attend these schools. The only ones I wish would make the money of that amount are the teachers who labored and took take from their families to educate my children. The administrators, the Board, the Superintendent, and the maintenance people have their place but not above the true ones who makes the difference-the TEACHERS!! Take that money and pay them for all those extra hours they spend preparing lessons, discovering new strategies, and suffering the hands of those who would not know what to do with a classroom of annoying children if it bit them in the hind end.

    Why did the BOE not fire Brock even with a contact and then dare him to sue? Chances are he would not sue and would settle for a smaller amount out of court so that his mistakes are not so public! Then the BOE could use the saved salary for things that are really needed like school supplies!!

    I was born and raised in Walton County and am embarrased by our BOE and it's lack of common business sense. I still ask the question, "How many current BOE employees are related to another current BOE employee?". Too many families have too much at stake to upset the apple cart!!

    Seems I'm not the only fruit loop and no lifer that has complained about Hobbs' hiring practices to the authorities. Was told today that the complaint has already been filed and mine would be added to the current possible "investigation" into less than professional hiring practices.
    We know have three people hired without experience necessary to maintain said position.
    Nathan Franklin associate superintendent , Hobbs is grooming him for the superintendent job, I'd bet me whiskey on that one. Moved to position without posting vacancy. It was his former brother in laws position.
    Rusty Linder in the curriculum department moved to position without posting vacancy btw.
    And now Brock no knowledge of OSHA requirements or anything.
    Again , I argue , not even Hobbs is qualified for the position he has. His certificate says educational leadership and ?? You guessed it pe!! Just like son. Where are his qualifications? That he ran the logistics department for the national guard ? Please.
    Btw Hobbs son can never be a principal in walton county (legally) while daddy Hobbs in super. Family member can not work with each other as direct reports. Meaning they can't be subordinates of each other. Notice I said legally. I'm afraid out board would approve that promotion if it were to ever occur. Except lusk, maybe.
    Hang in there lusk, the water is just getting rough.

    Georgia quit electing superintendents about 20 years ago or so. They have been appointed by local school boards since then. The problem as I see it here is this: our school board appears to be nothing more than a rubber stamp group for Gary Hobbs. Until this recent vote where Lusk voted no on the Brock transfer, I don't recall anyone on the Board ever voting in dissent of anything Hobbs put in front of them. This, to me, indicates a problem. The way I see it, the school Board is our representing body. They act as a system of checks and balances in a way so that the community, and taxpayers, have input into the school system which serves our community.

    Now I don't want a Board that does nothing but argue and can't get anything accomplished. However, I have this sneaky feeling that Hobbs set everything up so as to make sure his Loganville cronies are in all the positions of authority in our school system for many years to come. An even more sickening thought is that he has appointed Mr. Franklin and Mr. Linder so that one of them can become Superintendent when he retires in a year or two. Thereby making this sick cronyism continue for years and years!

    People, we need to make sure some changes happen. There absolutely needs to be an interview procedure and team set up to fill these types of positions. I would like to suggest that when we are filling positions that will affect the whole school system, such as Superintendent, that we have an interview team made up of representatives from all three of our clusters. I believe that there should be a couple of parents on this interview team. And here's a really crazy idea: why don't we try and consider interviewing some women or persons of color?

    Seriously??? How can the BOE budget afford a $114k salary when this position did not exist at the beginning of the school year? Where is this money going to come from?

    And another question that another poster raised that I am curious about as well: Why is the superintendent's job not one that is up for election?

    I thought I had seen it all with the Lynch saga last year, but this just further reinforces that this is a good ole boy network.... I have a friend that recently transferred to Walton Co. - she is a teacher in one of the elementary schools here. She says that she is constantly told that this "is a mom and pop county" - anytime she questions the legality of their "practices", she is told "oh we don't do it like that, we are mom and pop" and so on..... How can we be flying under the (State) radar like this for so long?

    I think it is fair to say one of the reasons why WCBOE is always broke! Maybe if salaries were adjusted accordingly then the children could benefit. For example; getting dropped off at their driveways during inclement weather, updated school books, and that is just small examples. Shameful that teachers purchase copy paper from their pockets for our children but Mr. Brock keeps his 100+ salary on a demotion. Thank youMs. Lusk for calling out a rat!!! We should demand better!!!

    Did anyone go to the Board Meeting? Were there any fireworks? Too bad I couldn't make it. This is pathetic. We could have a few teachers coming out of college with that salary. If the maintenance director in Gwinnett makes $67k with 133 schools. He makes $114k with 16 schools in Walton. Something stinks here. WTHeck???

    But i do hope you understand , other than the unnecessary personal attacks on the good people of walton county, the other posters have a legitimate reason to be upset about all of these under radar appointments going on by homer Hobbs. (Gary). There is no place for this type of behavior in our educational system. This is not his first position put in place by appointment and not interviewing qualified candidates. This is his third such appointment and I am looking into whether it is a sacs violation. If it is it needs to be addressed. Regardless of the ramifications to the system or me personally. Wrong is wrong right is right.

    Maybe we should kick you out – for all your comments about the people in this county that have now been removed?... Maybe you’ve already been bullied out of a “big town” and you thought you could be somebody in a “small town” by undermining the people here? I ask that you please try a different method of inspiration. I seriously doubt you’re impressing anyone – especially people from this “small town” that you’ve apparently decided to live in.. Why are you here if you’re so against the small town ways? Writing to “small minded people” in this “small county” paper as your “comments” suggested? There are a lot of people here that are very proud of this small town..

    Kind People: Appointing Brock to this new position may have been a mistake and not completely thought out – I’m not sure; don’t know all the details and not a lawyer or judge. However, I wanted to address some of the other comments against our district’s decisions and nature.

    Please look at our schools compared to others around.. We have a lot of great things going here.

    Maybe BOE/Hobbs aren’t such idiots for hiring capable people, from this town, with pride and love for this area. Maybe they should instead adhere to people like “kickthemallout” who despise you and your ways because you’re from this town – or listen to “Odaat” who is upset foremost because white people are still getting jobs in this county. Maybe they should omit all Walton county residents for future positions and any “whiteboy buddys” and then hire from surrounding counties - Dekalb, Clayton, Barrow, or Fulton for examples?? I guarantee that would make some folks happy regardless of if it’s best or not for our schools.

    Anyone here sat through even just one set of interviews for a Walton Co school administration position that can enlighten on favoritism?

    Believe me when I tell you, I’m not a buddy buddy BOE member or one of Hobbs’s friends; don’t even know him. I did, however, go to Walton County schools; and believe it or not, was kicked out my first year of ninth grade for something I did wrong.. Yep, believe it or not, it was me - the student. It wasn’t the system, the school , or teacher’s fault – it was my own. And I thank the Lord I can see through that and am not just blindly harvesting and spreading hate.

    I’m not condoning Brock’s new position or his paycheck. Just want to stand up for the people that love this town and still see the good.
    One more thing - Please don’t forget: the same road that led you into this county – will lead you right back out.

    So let me get this straight. Daddy Hobbs is head of the school system while is son is an AP at a local middle school. How many middle schools are in the county? Not that many! Coleman Landers is on the School Board and he is related to the principal at ARES. How many elementary schools are in the county? Not that many! The former facilities guy, Bradberry, has a daughter who teachs in the county. I was told the head of HR has a son that works or worked at YMS! Here is a question! How many Walton County BOE Employees are realted to another Walton County BOE Empoyee? I bet you would be surprised!! When this happens too many families have too much at stake to upset the apple cart. This is what happens when a local economy haS too few decent paying private jobs!!!!

    Here are the most serious of the issues. Though the BOE claims that they can not substantiate the claims, there was enough of an issue for Brock to "voluntarliy" seek a transfer to a different position.

    Well now we have an unqualified person filling a position he is not qualified for. Not only is he unqualified for the position, but due to the budget the BOE felt that the position was not vital enough to be filled in the midst of the budget crisis. So now we have an unqualified person who committed serious improprieties as a principal, filling a position deemed expendable, and paying him 114k. As pointed out , Gwinnett Co., with a population many many times that of Walton Co., pays an inexperienced person in that position about half that amount.

    So now we not only have an unqualified person in a expendable position being paid way more he is worth, we also have to find the money in the budget to pay another principal.

    I understand Brock may be under contract. But first if his actions warrant the transfer request then HE has violated his contract. The contract was for the principal position. If he requests and accepts th transfer to a new postion it too should force his contract to be changed.

    Hobbs and the BOE as a whole are doing a grave disservice to our communities and are being completely irresponsible with our tax dollars in this matter. And Hobbs had demonstrated once again, a willingness to protect those with whom he has relationships with. Im just waiting to get the announcement that Brian Hobbs is going to be the new principal of LMS.

    The decisions by Hobbs and the BOE remind me of the following facts. In 2000, Walton County had around 60k residents. It was foudned in 1818 with around 4k residents. Conclusion, the same genes keep getting passed around the county. We need new genes added to the gene pool because we can't seem to get decent leaders who know how to make a decent decision!! The Walton County gene pool is diluted

    I wonder if the previous director was making this amount of money and where is he now !! People of Walton County we ALL need come the next time your local BOE council comes up for re-election, they NEED to be GONE and WE need to clean house, because they also voted for this, unless Dobs is dictating to do so and none of them has any to stand up to him. And why can't Dobbs seat be pit up for election also. And also agree with everyone's comments on this. WE NEED A CHANGE !!!!!!

    Is it possible that Brock got this sweet deal because he hired Brian Hobbs (i.e., the son of Gary Hobbs...) to be his assistant principal at LMS? Brian is a nice guy, but he was an elementary PE teacher with no administrative experience when Brock hired him straight into the role at LMS, and many people were shocked when he got the role over several other qualified candidates. Could this be Brock's payback for taking care of the Superintendent's son??

    [sad] this whole thing is just sad. I am very concerned about the hiring practices in the Walton County Schools after all I have read these past two weeks. Did we in fact move three administrators from Loganville into major positions in our school system with no input other than Hobbs appointing them? Were both of our current Assistant Superintendents appointed by Mr. Hobbs without ever interviewing anyone else? I mean does that sound right???
    Shouldn't we have policies in place in human resources to insure some form of equity or oversight to guarantee we get the best candidates? Call me biased but were any of the administrators from Walnut Grove ever considered or interviewed. I happen to know for a fact that we have outstanding people over here. But I bet Mr Boutwell wasn't even considered because he isn't from Loganville! Forget about the fact that he has more experience than Linder, Franklin, Brock or Hobbs! The man has opened up and created what most people are saying is the best run school in the county. Maybe it's time to look at him for an even higher position, though we would sure as heck hate to lose him at the Grove!

    How do we really know that Brock even asked for this transfer. The Board nor Hobbs ever tells the truth to the news paper they can only report what is given to them. It seems that we the Citizens / Taxpayers of Walton county are the ones being punished by having to now pay more taxes to hire more people and to fulfill Brock's contract as a maintenance director. Really if I were Brock I would be embarrassed going from a top official principle to being in charge of Maintenance. A Maintenance Director making more money than the most powerful employee in the county the Sheriff more money then most of our judges. It's a shame that these people have a larger responsible and don't make what we are paying our Director of School Maintenance.

    Bourgeois, I have no problem at all if the Principal of a school is making that much money and the school is performing as we all hope it would. I have problems with a man taking a different job, that he's not experienced for, but yet wants to get paid the same money. He asked for the transfer, he should get paid what is fitting for that position with his experience. He can't have his cake and eat it too. But maybe you can if you've ever been affiliated with any Loganville school. Once your in, your in.

    I do have the qualifications to be the Director Of Maintenance of WCPS. I wonder if they'd let me be the Principal instead?

    Just some perspective....Walton County Public Schools are paying the Director of Maintenance (With Zero Experience) $114,000 a year while Gwinnett County Public School System tops off the Director of Maintenance (With Little or No Experience) at $67,000. Yet our children can't take field trips and our teachers are stressed from extra furlough days. Come on Walton County Board of Education. Something needs to change.

    All I know is that, that is a lot of money. If he was worth that as a Principal that's one thing ,but this seems a little like rewarding him for getting in the middle of something. An extreme lifestyle/employment change didn't result from idle gossip (which Walton County is not short on). If there was a hint of wrongdoing then man what a lesson in rewards for these children! Meanwhile remember when kids used to take actual field trips? When my youngest grows up and I tell her the real reason the school couldn't ever afford to give her that experience was because they were too busy handling scandals, she's gonna be mad!

    Playing devil's advocate here;

    A principal is responsible for dozens of employees and hundreds of students. How many business professionals with that much responsibility make less than $114k?

    As far as test scores goes, LMS pretty much tops the charts and has done so since Brock began his tenure there.

    Has the newspaper or board office ever confirmed that a teacher was dismissed in this case? I can't find the evidence.

    Is it not legally prudent to allow a transfer if the employee is under contract for the remainder of the year? Otherwise, a lawsuit for improper dismissal would probably be much more costly to us taxpayers.

    WaltonMOM - What you're missing is that is how things roll under the Despotic Little Bridge Troll Gary Hobbs. His cronies get passes on anything short of blatant felonies, others who threaten to mess up the good old boy system in WCPS get thrown under the bus, and the Walton County Board of Education lacks the gonads to stand up and put an end to the reign oh the self-inflated, egotistical blowtoad in the Superintendent's chair.


    We KNOW you read the posts on this site. I challenge ANY BOE member to grow a spine for once and explain in a public forum how this miserable little bridge troll remains in the Super's chair!!

    AGAIN, I CALL FOR A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE ON HOBBS!!!!!! Vote him down and rescind his ridiculous contract!

    COME ON, BOE MEMBERS!!!! WE'RE WAITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am not understanding something here. There was not enough evidence to say he was guilty but Hobbs moves this guy to a new position and allows him to keep his money. What did the other guy that had this position make before Brock, I am sure it wasn't 114,232.00. Either he did it or he didn't if he did it he should have been fired if he didn't he should have been left in the school. Brock must have felt some guilt because he asked to be moved. why would you ask to be moved from a position that you worked hard to get if you didn't do anything wrong. was it best for the kids or best for the almighty HOBBS. HOBBS needs to go it's just a matter of time before SAC'S is called on the Walton county school system how you going to cover that one up HOBBS. I agree with Catalyst Thanks LUSK for being the only one to stand up for what is right. All the other board members need to be voted out when there time is up.

    THIS is how The Despotic Little Bridge Troll Gary Hobbs rewards his Loganville buddies who get caught, :LITERALLY, with their britches down!. The teacher who has been forced to resign has a rock-solid disparate treatment claim against WCPS, and I hope she cleans up.


    If the BOE had an ounce of testicular fortitude among its members it would vote him out and rescind his ridiculous contract!!!! THIS INSANITY HAS TO STOP!!!!!!!!!!

    If the teacher was forces to resign or face mom renewal and termination , she needs to contact an attorney outside of walton county, page, Gae that handles civil liberties cases and push for a disparate treatment law suit. If she was threatened with termination or no renewal in lieu of resigning , he should have faced the same request. Hobbs will never own up to his idiocracy and stupid policies.

    So having principal experience is all that's required to run the maintenance department ? No knowledge of state regulation regarding hazmat material? No knowledge of regulations regarding chemical compositions used in schools? No knowledge of regulations pertaining to code in regards to fire suppression equipment? No knowledge of kitchen equipment and code enforcement? Hmmmm if someone had been knowledgeable about septic systems when youth middle was built the state wouldn't have had to threaten severe fines because the system was missing the required pumping system and check points to make sure the waste was leaving the facility in the manner it was supposed to -clean.
    Again , lusk thank you , the rest of you yes men need to be voted out.

    It's interesting to me that a criminal , lynch, and someone who violates the moral turptitude standard from the Psc can request transfers and get them. Good god, Allah , and Yahweh !!

    Hey idiots, yes you, editors of this trash tabloid , resigning and termination are two separate things. Watch the board docs , the next resignation from LMS that is a woman will be the other end of this fiasco. My god , are you all that deep In homers pocket that you can't see or report the truth. O wait , you do report the truth , as homer Hobbs sees it. Please. Your advertisers need to know you guys wouldn't report the truth if Jesus Christ, Allah , or Yahweh put it in your hands. Why do you let them dictate what you report?
