Hearing set for Blair Oaks principal
Educator requests explanation for non-renewal
Sunday, March 25, 2012
Blair Oaks Elementary Principal Lorie Winslow has requested an open hearing on the school board’s February decision not to renew her contract.
In order to comply with state law requirements to hold a hearing within 10 days of her request, the proceeding will be at 9 a.m. March 31 in the Blair Oaks Middle School gymnasium.
On Feb. 15, the Blair Oaks school board voted 6-1 to not renew the contract of its elementary school principal after an eight-hour meeting that began the night before and that attracted a crowd of more than 150 people who turned out to speak in her support.
