Here is a great opportunity to suspend the Gunn Principal and three other staff members while a secret investigation is conducted. Also closing the Theater would be appropriate
What, PAUSD has inadequate site security?? Surprise, surprise, surprise. Anyone who's been at a board meeting in the last two years wouldn't be surprised by this.
So, Why didn't we see 'improved security' as one of the strategic priority options on the survey? Over the past 1-2 years this has been an important issue periodically - with the board being forced to choose between security improvments and other 'priorities'.
That survey stunk.
But thank GOODNESS we have a mandarin immersion program to look forward to.

Why? So that their $$$ grant can help cover the cost of the stolen DVD burner and Palm? Sorry, but that money is only good for them. Buy your own.
Maybe some of the time the district staff has spent studying MI, implementing MI, traveling to China, hiring staff, evaluating books, etc etc etc. could have been spent on a security study and implementation plan? Are you saying the grant is paying for Becky Cohn Vargas, Marilyn Cook, Norm Masuda? No it is not.
Burglar??? The title of this news article sounded like it was a play being presented at the Gunn Theater..........oops.
So who is responsible for the operation of Spangenberg Theater? Will that person - or persons - be the subject of a criminal investigation, put on administrative leave, their computers seized, and be barred and banned from Spangenberg, told nothing, and the focus of police detectives and 'private investigators'? Will PAUSD and city employees think twice about reporting anything? Or in this case, does the PAUSD have more sense?
I am replying to the last comment, sorry a little late.
Who is responsible for the operation of Spangenberg Theater? it is the District. The district created a new position, about 2 years ago, (one more "chief") to supervise the theater,
he is Chuck McDonnell, he is also the landscape supervisor for the PAUSD. The person physically present at the theater is a facility technician who is on hand to help event holders with technical matters.
The district controls all aspects of Spangenberg theater.
I have been a client of the theater, and this is my understanding of the way the theater is run.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
