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."

Still no resolution for Oak Ridge principal

First they were patient, then hopeful. Now many parents are fuming that Oak Ridge Principal Paul Burke has been on paid administrative leave for nearly half the school year without resolution for undisclosed personnel matters.

On Tuesday evening El Dorado Union High School District Board of Trustees President Dave Del Rio reported out of a nearly three-hour closed session that no personnel action would be taken regarding Burke, delaying the issue yet again despite several previous board meetings devoted to it and an outside consulting firm hired to help.
