Former employee sues district, alleges retaliation
A school district employee sued her former district, alleging that she had been illegally terminated in retaliation for expressing her opposition to discrimination. The employee was responsible for schools within a specific feeder system, including supervising the principals of those schools.
A complaint was filed by parents of Hispanic students at one of the employee’s feeder schools, claiming that they felt unwelcome at the school and ignored by the principal. The employee challenged her supervisors over the complaint and sued the district shortly after her contract was terminated. The district requested that the lawsuit be dismissed, claiming there were non-discriminatory reasons for the employee's termination.
