Dublin school district abruptly parts ways with superintendent

Original post made on Mar 26, 2019

Leslie Boozer’s tenure as Dublin Unified School District superintendent ended abruptly with little explanation Tuesday, with school board members announcing at their evening meeting that they and Boozer “mutually agreed to a separation.”

Megan voted yes to put our high school students next to a prison releasing dozens of inmates a day, including sex offenders and rapists. In addition to altering a student’s life, It would only take one incident for someone to sue the school district or the board members that voted yes. Megan said, look at the data. Who caress about data when an anomaly results in a student killed or raped. Megan needs to go.

@Dublin Parent

I don’t think that Santa Rita is releasing convicted “sex offenders and rapists”. Santa Rita is not a prison; it’s a jail. According to my understanding it shouldn’t be releasing convicted sex offenders and rapists. Convicted felons are sent to prisons and after serving their sentences are released from prisons. Jails are for temporary holding of inmates for trial or to appear in front of a judge or for serving a short sentence.

Clearly, DUSD trustees (Megan Rouse and Amy Miller) own the community an apology!!! Both (together with Cunningham who disgracely stepped down earlier) are responsible for running DUSD into a mess. Probably Megan's husband will come out again on nextdoor, touting Megan's achievements, no matter how bad she did to the community.

First, I am wondering why all the comments so far are about the location of a new school? That is a secondary to the issue to the Superintendent abruptly leaving and the Board being down two directors.

Perhaps, with all the turmoil going on within the DUSD the last five years or so, the root cause is people electing incompetent school board members. The last two Superintendents the board hired left a lot to be desired. The teachers are finally about to strike because they can't take it anymore. Many board meetings are like a circus, with open feuding between the board and frustrated parents.

I'm also wondering why we are not hearing about the millions of dollars that are missing from district funds. The Board has really hushed that one up, and parents, taxpayers, and the media seem oblivious.

Of course, it doesn't help that the East Dublin and West Dublin folks are at war with each other over school issues and school locations.

So, there are much bigger problems in the District than where a school was going to be located.
