Mary and Linda have not received an apology from the district and appeared at the 4/8/2014 meeting. They were joined by Paige Wright a sub at WG who was banned from the school because of pressure from a few employees at the school who felt her honest responses were non-supportive. Since she wouldn't lie about the situation and aspects she didn't know about she was retaliated against. A Big Thanks to these ladies for standing up for themselves! I know and have worked with two of the three and found them to be VERY professional and level headed. Makes me question the whole investigation if this was allowed to happen!

The board meeting is here at the community section. After, Valerie Arkin suggests a second legal opinion by someone unaffiliated with the case. VERY good suggestion!
