The Paso Robles school district has called a special meeting at 8:30 this Thursday morning. The agenda is a short one, but in closed session, the trustees will revisit the superintendent’s mid-year evaluation. No further details are disclosed, but in light of the fact that the three newly elected challengers will be sworn in at the regular meeting on Tuesday, there may be some employment contingencies for Williams to be discussed by the outgoing board.
During Williams tenure as superintendent, the budget reserve has dropped from seven and a half million dollars to about $754 thousand dollars. In a survey of teachers, morale and discipline dropped dramatically. Many teachers have taken early retirement or moved out of the district. Three teachers left one middle school for jobs at the men’s colony. Regardless, trustees Joel Peterson, Tim Gearhart, and Joan Summers stand behind the superintendent.
The district is still waiting for the release of a grand jury report on the district.
