Last fall three members of the board wrote the superintendent a letter addressing the superintendent’s disrespectful communication to them.
Lindsey Kilbride of WJCT on the radio program First Coast Connect this past Friday said members of the board lamented that their directives often went ignored and they would often find out about what was happening in the district from the media and not the superintendent.
The superintendent has also at least on two occasions threatened legal action against the board if he didn’t get his way.
Should I go on?
Well school board if he is going to be dismissive of you, his bosses, if he is going to ignore and marginalize you, then how do you think he is treating teachers. The answer is poorly and it is time for you to wake up.
The superintendent is often dismissive of teachers in the media and dismissive when they voice concerns and all you need to do is look at First Coast high school where those teachers that weren’t run off begged for help and instead of addressing their concerns he called their tormentor one of the best principals in the city.
I also know teachers have come to him about the Engage NY curriculum and the pacing guide only to be ignored as well.
I used to think the superintendent just didn’t respect teachers but we now know the list is long.
