The district has now seen fit to compound their error as today with practically zero notice they sent Mr. Harris to Ed White high school and moved popular assistant Principal Tim Durkin to Westside high.
I spoke with a few members of the Ed White staff and they said they were besides themselves. That is was a tragedy that Durkin was ripped away from Ed White so close to graduation especially since he had been with this senior class since they were freshmen.
Another member of the faculty said Durkin was that type of AP that kept everybody motivated and enthusiastic also since he was in charge of the master schedule he was incredibly valuable behind the scenes too.
Who does this, another staff member added, who messes with peoples lives like this. Well apparently superintendent Vitti and the district do because to them staff members are merely pawns on a chess board to be moved at a moments notice without much thought to the consequences the move might make.
The district has bungled this situation from the beginning and now has made it worse and we wonder why staff morale is rock bottom.
I find myself missing Ed Pratt-Dannals.
