Being a Principle of a school is a tough job and takes commitment, so thanks Dr Epple for your service to Newtown, and may you have much sucess in your new position.

What is meant by the phrasing "position in an elementary district"

Perhaps she prefers to work to a town not dominated by tea baggers, and where she is appreciated for her efforts to educate the youth of the town, without people whining about over paid educators.

Question, if Epple wasn't doing her job, whose responsibility is it to oversee her job duties? Who’s responsible for guiding her?

She was/is BFFs with JR and LG...that's how she got the job...vote of confidence by teaching staff; ehhh not so much. Now, a nice scenic drive on I-84 and a $30,000 CUT in pay

Question, does that vote of cofidence go on her record?

I had heard a rumor about staff discontent at RIS. Was there an official vote of confidence/no confidence? Was/is the BOE aware? Does anyone know?

Reed has never been the same since Donna Denniston left. She is sorely missed.
