Outcome: At the end of the Board meeting, PAUSD Board of Education President Ms. Terry Godfrey provided the following statement:

The Board met in closed session to evaluate the performance of the Superintendent. The Board directed that the firm of Cozen O’Connor conduct an investigation of how district staff handled the issues surrounding the events at Palo Alto High School that have recently been reported in the media. The firm will provide a report to the Board to assist in further evaluation of the Superintendent’s performance, and to aid the district in addressing any Title IX or other issues. The Board plans to conduct the annual evaluation of the Superintendent in June as scheduled. Consistent with the Board’s commitment to transparency, the Board will share the results of this investigation to the extent possible.

The next PAUSD BOE meeting is a Regular Board Meeting scheduled for Tuesday, May 23, 2017.  Learn more in the Board Meetings and Materials section.
