EEOC responds to complaints

The latest development regarding what is being alleged as unfair termination of three administrators in April 2015 centers on a recent rendering by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Three separate complaints were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission last year and the district, in a media statement issued Tuesday, said all three cases have been dismissed; one in January and the others this month.
Board of education president Pete Bennett said the seven-member board is charged with ensuring that the district’s policies and procedures are followed, and it did so in this case.
Superintendent Jean Logan said despite the distraction of the issue, district officials throughout the process never lost sight of their main priority: the district’s children.
Kevin Hamilton, one of the three complainants, said the response he received from the EEOC indicated it could not determine if the claim was or wasn’t discrimination, and the district is misinterpreting the EEOC’s conclusion.
He said the EEOC issued him a right-to-sue letter and he is in the process of following through for the matter to appear in federal court.
The dismissal of Hamilton, Bradley Coon and Pete Anderson blossomed into a student protest at Three Rivers High School, the formation of the grass-roots watchdog group TR Cares, a failed recall attempt of three board members and an unsuccessful lawsuit against county clerk Lindsay Oswald.
