Well this isn't much of a surprise that Pausd (and its school board) tried to skirt the rules. Is it?

Pausd has violated state and federal anti-discrimination laws repeatedly over a period of years. It promoted to principal of Paly and Gunn two assistant principals, both of whom failed to follow these laws, causing harm to students. One of its taxpayer financed student publications sought to help cover up these administration misdeeds and salvage the jobs of wrong doers. The district has sought to evade complying w the public records laws. By it's own admission, it hasn't complied w the special education laws. It shuffles around staff members who violated laws, without putting disciplinary letters in their personnel files.

More of the same...

DiBrienza was quoted a while back as being "thrilled" with their agreement.

It sparked my concern about what was going on.

"Stanford and School District comply with county ground rules.

In a shocking development, Stanford and the school district used good communication and competent lawyers to make sure they complied with the agreed ground rules for the DA negotiation. Simitian fumed."
