In a marathon closed session that lasted nearly eight hours, the Pleasanton School Board decided Wednesday to replace Jon Vranesh and name a new principal at Walnut Grove Elementary School.
In a statement after the closed session meeting ended at 3:15 a.m. Wednesday, School Board President Jamie Hintzke said: "In closed session by a 4 to 1 vote, the Board found merit to complaints filed against an administrator of the District. The Board has directed the Superintendent to issue a written decision to the Parties in this matter."
The board also directed Superintendent Parvin Ahmadi to replace Vranesh.
Board member Valerie Arkin voted against the action.
"There was not a dismissal or any disciplinary action," said Vranesh's attorney, H. Paul Kondrick. "We don't have a next step."
With the search for a new principal underway, it is uncertain whether Vranesh's paid administrative leave will continue without resolution. Board and district officials were not available to comment on how the district will proceed.
Updates will be posted as information becomes available.
