A blog reader asked about the academic performance of the district under Davis. One thing to note is that, as far as I can tell, the board never discussed academics while Davis was superintendent, save the annual CIP review. That is a huge departure from the previous superintendent.
Of course, you can blame this issue -- and, most other issues -- on a board that has no backbone. Davis runs the show. To wit: He is noted in the paper as having selected a short list of replacements. Folks, government in the US is not supposed to be a fiefdom, where the king picks his successor.
Back to academics. I haven't seen any improvements. The last I saw, the district is ranked in the 90's. So, Davis took a district ranked top 15 -- or better -- in demographics and produced results well below expectations. To be fair, Reimer did no better. But, at least he was paid much less.
