Town School Board rejects public discussion as inappropriate part of formal grievance process
By Olga Peters, The Commons, October 23, 2013
BRATTLEBORO —The five-member Brattleboro (Vermont) Town School District Board returned from their closed executive session to an empty room that had teemed with some 40 audience members only an hour earlier.
Four members of the Windham Southeast Supervisory Union administration waited outside the Academy School auditorium, ground zero for a tense five-hour grievance hearing on Oct. 16 for a teacher who says that she wants to shine a light on an alleged pattern of bullying and intimidation in the school’s teaching environment and who is alleging that her treatment is part of an orchestrated effort to drive her from her job.
Chair Margaret Atkinson said the board will issue its written decision on teacher Lauren Ashley’s formal complaint by Oct. 24, within six school days.
Ashley, a fourth-grade teacher at Academy School with 27 years teaching experience, filed a formal grievance requesting the removal of a corrective action plan (CAP) from her official personnel file based on a teaching evaluation conducted during the 2012-13 school year.
