Gee..... how hard is it PUSD to make a decision and stick with it? Absolute poor leadership!

Don't fix the problem, cover it up.

Completely unacceptable and lacking of ownership and accountability.

What’s next? Let me take a guess...... more raises for the board and Superintendent while no pay increases for the teachers while at the same time the board tries to add / impose 5000 more minutes of instruction next year with no teacher pay increase?? The board should be ashamed!

and who's fault is that? The teachers or the district? Who came up with the online requirements during Covid? Didn't staff follow district guidelines? Ask any teacher or district maintenance employee - they'll confirm the boards failure and lack of incompetence. District enrollment will take even more of a hit which means less dollars but hey let's keep paying the Superintendent stipends for each year of service while the teachers take the brunt of the it in the trenches.

This whole thing is just very sad because everyone has suffered but it is just sickening to me how the district leadership pats themselves on the back. Leadership has failed the kids, parents, and staff trying to look good in the press and community.

This discussion by district leadership to the board feels very tardy. We have known for over 15 months that many children have not had equal access to the tools needed to be successful in school. Technology, a quiet place to work and focus, the ability to get too and from school during odd hours have all been hindrances to those who need the most support. Disappointed and losing faith in our district leadership.

Todd,
I whole heartedly agree. I look to the board and district as primarily responsible, and while I don't think the teachers union was really helpful in moving anything forward, accountability falls to the board and district leaders over individual teachers - 100% agree.

I have a memory of a PUSD teacher removing campaign signs of candidate she did not support. That action highlights the greediness, and the pettiness of the teachers union, paid by tax payers, cuddled by the PUSD staff and The leaderless, directionless PUSD BOARD!
