To the Editor:
Your article on the Murray LSC (“Murray teachers question LSC”, Nov. 25, 2015) contains two gross inaccuracies. First, the annual state of the school address was not a “hearing about whether to retain” the principal.
Local School Councils do follow a process to decide on renewal of the principal’s contract every four years, but this process does not include public hearings. Second, there was no “intense three-hour debate”. The annual state of school meeting usually runs from two to three hours presenting school performance data, and this year’s meeting was no exception. Three teachers did participate in public comment at the end of the meeting to express support for Mr. Mason, but it was hardly a three-hour debate.
