PAUSD "trust" issue not limited to mid-level managers

As a parent of children in Palo Alto public schools, I have to say that concerns about trust with respect to our senior management are not unique to the mid-level managers. My faith in this district was shattered by the disgraceful way in which it misled the JLS community about the situation with former principal, Joe DiSalvo, and the subsequent principal search process, which wasted a lot of people's time and money getting to a forgone conclusion.
The by-laws of the PAUSD Board of Education Web Link
state in the very first article that the public schools should reinforce the values of our democratic society, teach citizenship and provide an environment conducive to ethical behavior.
The senior management of this district conducts itself in a way that is antithetical to this statement, and sets a terrible example for our children, who pay close attention to how adults treat each other.
Do other parents and community members trust the senior management of this district with our children's futures?
