These people just float from one taxpayer-provided position to the next, lipping past and avoiding the consequences of the consequences of their actions, all the while geared up to take lifetime pension benefits at taxperer expense. Trust your elected Board. They did the right thing.

The most amazing part of this story is how Pacifica School District officials say it’s no problem. I’m sure those same officials will scream how shocked they are when their new Superintendent scams them.

In the private sector background checks are done on positions at this level. In education, teachers have background checks. The district didn't do a background check on this person and discover this information? Really? If they didn't, they were derelict in their duty and that should be kept in mind at the next school board election. If they knew and hired her anyway, that's just malfeasance and those responsible should be dismissed.
