My hat is off to Gail price for taking an action that many in the community and within PAUSD have been asking for; she's a real leader.
It's time to shine some light on long-standing staff morale and lack-of-effective-leadership problems brought about by Mary Frances Callan and senior staff.
The only problem I can see with this is that very few, if any, staff - and very few parents - will comment on this in public, for fear of retribution. The latter is largely due to the chilling atmosphere that Mary Frances Callan and some of her senior staff have created within PAUSD.
Thus, we will mmostly have a chance to watch our elected board in action, in the open. My hope is that they will find a graceful way to help MFC - and possibly some of her senior staff - to exit. Our fantastic teacher and administrative corp, our kids, and our dedicated parents deserve far more than they've been getting from the current senior adminstrative leadership.
