LCS Settles with EduLog Over Transportation System Dispute

The Leon County School Board (LCSB), on the recommendation of Superintendent Rocky Hanna, voted to approve a mediated settlement agreement between LCS and and Education Logistics, Inc.(EDULOG).

TR reported about the mediation back in January.

EdulLog was the vendor involved with the failed attempt to upgrade the LCS transportation system last fall. The system was supposed to be more efficient and enhance student safety. However, Superintendent Hanna ended the contract with EduLog last August, days after problems surfaced under the new system.

Hanna stated that, ” Effective immediately LCS will no longer contract with EduLog to provide bus routing services.  The system failure which occurred the week before the start of school and the chaos it has created for our students, parent and employees is completely unacceptable. “

The approved settlement agreement included a $250,000 refund from EduLog to LCS. However, the settlement language did not address the amount previously paid to EduLog from LCS for the transportation system. LCS documents from 2018 indicate the first year cost of the system was approximately $520,000. Comments at the meeting indicated that LCS had paid approximately $475,000 before cancelling the contract.

Under the agreement, LCS will continue to utilize the EduLog tracking software, pursuant to a 2008 agreement through June 2020. LCS will return to EduLog twelve (12) tablets it has in its possession within twenty (20) days of the signing of the settlement agreement.

The settlement agreement also included a “Mutual Non -Disparagement” clause. The clause states, in part, the “parties agree that from this time forward they will refrain from making any defamatory or derogatory remarks about the other, or any person associated with or representing the other.”

The agenda item stated that the proposed settlement “eliminates the risk, expense, disruption to staff, cost, and fees associated with protracted litigation related to this dispute.”

    The only solution to education in Leon County is 100 percent home schooling.

    I can help the district verify run feasibility and tier runs to minimize routes. A prominent top 3 district has relied on these solutions for the past 11 years. I can share more.

In other words, you don’t want it known about the Kickbacks? $520,000 is a bit much for what this was for.

    Rocky racoon should be paying any settlements out of his secret campaigning coffers he keeps in the great state if Nevada!

    Hannah is a crook and it shows in the performance of the schools in his charge.

    Rocky your leadership is lacking. You do not know how to preplan, other than hiding from child support until sued, 10 years later, owing $100,000. Did you preplan your settlement with Gwen Graham when you bullied a teacher that stopped dating you as as a high school Principal? You surely pre-planned the admitted misinformation in your self authored notebook where you admitted you deliberately mislead state and federal authorities costing taxpayers $600,000. How about the cost overruns at Rickards? Did you preplan paying your political buddies over $100,000 naming them Assistant Superintendents and Directors without interviews?
