New school board should let Principal return to his job

Dear Editor:
The letters from the community supporting Principal Mitch Clausen were
outstanding, but now we must answer the question: What should we do
about it?

Dear Editor:
The letters from the community supporting Principal Mitch Clausen were outstanding, but now we must answer the question: What should we do about it? If the arbitrator’s verdict does not come back for 60 days or more, then the district is spending that much more money on Mr. Clausen’s salary and those salaries to replace him. In other words, another $50,000 or more is liable to be spent before he returns. Rather than wait for that to happen, shouldn’t the new School Board end this charade by dropping the charges and allowing Mr. Clausen to return to his job?

If you agree and are willing to get involved, contact the School Board members and suggest that they drop this fiasco, cut the district’s losses, and let Mr. Clausen return to work.  Their names, phone numbers, and e-mail addresses are on the district’s Web site. Please get involved and help the high school return to its previous staffing and not wait for the school year to be over before he returns.
