The Dismissal of Oak Ridge HS Principal Paul Burke - The Rest of the Story

by Placerville Newswire / Mar 08, 2016 / comments

Paul Burke's coworkers give an ultimatum, he comes back, we leave!  One example of the poor relationship cited is: "during a [REDACTED] meeting when a fire alarm went off, he got red in the face, yelled, " [REDACTED] this" and slammed his hands on the table in frustration, which scared the staff present. He then went out and directed [REDACTED] to shut off the alarm. When the fire department came to investigate, they asked who shut off the alarm.  [REDACTED] got angry, pointed to [REDACTED] and said she did it."
