Telecommuting District Superintendent

Via NewsAlert we get to this Newsday story:

As the part-time superintendent of the tiny New Suffolk school district in Southold Town, Feger carries out much of his administrative task from his winter home in Arizona, 2,500 miles away. This he does by phone, fax, mail and e-mail, communicating several times each week with the district's secretary, lead teacher and board president.

"I love it," said Feger, 65, a former Hampton Bays school principal who retired in 1997 and has another home in Greenport. "It really is a good life."

I'm sure it is.

Talk about phoning it in, this is amazing.

Well if he has a good enough telecommunications system I have no problem with this. If he actually checks his email daily and thoroughly, unlike every district level administrator I've ever dealt with, then he may have even found a better system.
