Steve Sundquist's Response to the lawyer's Independent Investigation Report
From Steve's response:
In my view, this report demonstrates multiple failures of management oversight and accountability. Systemic failures allowed these absolutely unacceptable activities to persist, and that is not tolerable.I give them the weekend to make a decision.
Every day in classrooms across Seattle, teachers and principals are helping students understand what it means to be ethical citizens and to take responsibility for themselves and their actions. The Board will not tolerate unethical conduct, nor will we tolerate a lack of accountability.
It is our responsibility as a Board to carefully consider the hard facts that were laid out in the Auditor’s report as well as the sweeping review of management’s role offered by this independent investigation. Now we need to take decisive action and make meaningful changes to rebuild the public’s confidence and ensure this never happens again.
This should be one lively School Board meeting next week. Any bets on if the Superintendent magically has a conference to be at?
