Though my wrists were slapped yesterday, it was worth it as Opie has responded quickly to being thrown under the bus. His office has researched the problem and the teachers are supposed to get their checks by Monday.
His reply to me was to forward any concerns directly to him or his assistant (which I tried to do but she wasn't there). It was actually rather positive despite the tire marks on his back. So Opie says to report things directly to him. My principal says to forward everything to him. Wow, everyone wants to hear from ME ME ME!
