Lebo: Update to Associate Superintendent Issue

From this morning's Post-Gazette:
The school board will vote Dec 18 on whether to notify Associate Superintendent Pamela Pulkowski that the board will open her contract when it expires in June.

The board tabled the motion last month after Dr. Pulkowski told members she had been harassed by others in the district in an effort to get her to quit her job and that she had far exceeded goals set for her position.

She told the board she had filed complaints with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Also at last month's meeting, some community members asked the board to renew Dr. Pulkowski's contract.

Opening the position means that others can be considered for the job or that the board can eliminate the position, board President Joseph Rodella said during Monday's board discussion meeting.

Mr. Rodella said it was his opinion that it makes sense for the board to open the position to allow whoever is chosen as the next superintendent to structure his or her own administration.

If the board doesn't vote to notify Dr. Pulkowski that the contract will be opened, her contract is automatically renewed.

It's funny that on the 12/12 broadcast of the school board meeting there was a discussion regarding retaliation and reprisals.
Both Rodella and Campbell, made comments that they had never experienced or heard of anything even remotely resembling retaliation in the district.
This Pulkowski affair and the Sable fiasco would seem to prove otherwise!
If employees have to seek legal help, what are parents and taxpayers too expect if they address problems or bad employees.
Yes Mr. Rodella-- "perception is perception and reality-reality." But perception normally is borne out of some element of truth.

I doubt there is "blatant" retaliation shown to anyone in the Mt. Lebanon Schools or School District. Having said that, I most definitely believe that the children of School Board members could receive preferential treatment from teachers. The School Board members would HAVE to be PRO-TEACHER UNION of course!
