August 2012 Moms

Update

Dave went to work at 6:45 this morning, as usual and when he got there the superintendent came to his office and told him that he spoke with the board president yesterday and that they will set up a meeting on Monday or Tuesday. He told him that his options were to resign or that the board would not be renewing his contract. We are crushed. We don't understand. If you could continue to pray for our family we would appreciate it. My husband took a personal day for today and came home. He has never been "fired." and this is such a shock for us. He is so beat down. I am rambling, but again, your prayers and good thoughts are appreciated.

    My goodness, that makes no sense! I am so sorry my love.

    I am thinking about you. Your family is strong and you will survive this. You will make it through this. You are stronger than you know.

  • I am feeling so so sad and angry for you guys right now. Does he have recourse? Any other options to appeal this decision? Surely it can't be final...

    Is this a private school, CF? I am confused as to how your H can be "let go" so easily without any warning.

  • I am so sorry this is happening to your family.  I'll pray for a miracle.  
  • I am so sorry. I can't believe that the superintendent is allowing this to happen. If your DH has been doing his job, there is no reason for this. Could the union provide support for your DH? Strong leaders who click with a teaching staff are hard to find. Hugs and prayers your way!

  • It sounds to me like someone has a personal friend they want in that position or something. I mean, this is just too out of nowhere. I'm positive that it has nothing to do with your H, but more to do with someone owing someone a favor, promise, whatever.

    I'm so sorry. I know you guys must be stressed, but know that nothing happens without a reason. He will find another amazing job, where he is appreciated much more than this. I mean, if this is the way these people are going to treat him, he shouldn't want to work for them anyways.

    He can and will be just fine. All of you will.

    T&P and huge, huge hugs.

    It is not. However, Principals hired at a new district are probationary for their first two years. I advised my husband to call an SAI lawyer since he never had an evaluation and when I told him that he said the the supt told him this morning that his evaluation would be on Monday. I still think he should call and try. If he's been told this BEFORE the evaluation I don't see how that can hold up. I also suggested that he set up a meeting with each board member before the meeting and have a group of supporting staff with him during each one. He did send out his resume to another hiring district last night, and I guess we will keep on trying.

  • Oh my gosh, I am so sorry! This makes no sense! It all just seems so sudden. It would've be nice if someone would've given him a heads up that there was some sort of an issue. It's very unfair. I'll be thinking of you guys. Hopefully something even better opens up for him.

  • I'm so sorry, crossing. To echo pp's this really just makes no sense, and I wonder if it is really more about someone else and not your H. As lili asked, does he have any recourse?

    I will continue to send good vibes your way that it works out soon.

    Oh yeah. They are playing games here. You don't effin give someone an evaluation AFTER informing them they are being let go!! Call that lawyer! Does he have an administrator's association?? It's almost like the teacher's union here, but it's not nominally a union. Like for collective bargaining, etc. I agree with BBJ that some shady shiz is going down here! Someone has to be on your H's team...

    Oh my goodness!! Im so sorry to hear that. I was sure it would be resolved in a positive way. I agree with BBJ that someone got him fired, something fishy is going on for sure. It sounds like your husband is an amazing principal!
    Prayers to your family. Hopefully he can find somewhere better that appreciates him more.

  • I've worked in schools with great school boards and others with miserable school boards......

    but it sounds like the one your DH works with is awful!!!! I am so sorry that you are all going through this.  Crossing fingers for some good luck with another district!!!

  • I am livid for you guys. I hate sh!tty people in power. Get a lawyer, the eval after being canned is total BS. I know he probably just wants to get away from this nightmare right now, but something shady is going down and they need to be held accountable.

    I agree no harm in seeing what a lawyer has to say!

  • Also, I think if he told them he had contacted a lawyer, they would all of a sudden change their minds. No one, especially not a school board, wants to deal with a lawyer.

    I'd definitely call one, just to see what they say. They'll let you know flat out over the phone if you have a case or not and let you know where your H stands. Your H should definitely pursue this if it's a legitimate case. He may not want to, but you guys have 4 small kids and I'm guessing there isn't a money tree growing in your front yard...

    I'm so pissed for you.
