The Coeur d’Alene School Board is accused of religious discrimination, fiscal irresponsibility and violations of ethics and Idaho’s open meetings law in a grievance to be filed today by a group of Coeur d’Alene and Hayden residents. The 20-page complaint, supported by a petition signed by more than 80 residents, was prompted by the board’s controversial decision at the start of the school year to eliminate the Primary Years Program at Hayden Meadows Elementary School. Nicole Olson and Ashlie Unruh, who helped prepare the grievance, said they would like to see the PYP teaching framework reinstated at the school, but they also want school trustees to follow district and state policies when making decisions/Scott Maben, SR.
