Pasco grievance hearing delayed
All you Pasco folks who have been waiting to hear the juicy details behind Gulf High teacher Vicky Mudry's complaints against ousted principal Tom Imerson will have to wait a bit longer.
The Pasco School Board has temporarily postponed its scheduled June 3 hearing on Mudry's grievance, with the agreement of the United School Employees of Pasco. Superintendent Heather Fiorentino and the board want to spend the time hashing out more details of how to cut spending for the 2008-09 budget.
"That's the top priority," board chairwoman Kathryn Starkey said of the budget discussions.
The budget workshop is now scheduled to take place immediately following the board's 9:30 a.m. meeting. Topping the agenda is likely to be discussion over how - or more likely if - it's possible to preserve teacher raises based on annual years of service (known as step increases).
