Parents File Complaint Vs. Trustees

The Coeur d’Alene School Board is accused of religious discrimination, fiscal irresponsibility and ethics lapses in a grievance filed Thursday by a group of Coeur d’Alene and Hayden residents. The 20-page complaint, supported by a petition signed by more than 100 residents, was prompted by the board’s controversial decision at the start of the school year to eliminate the Primary Years Programme 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. More than that, though, they say they want school trustees to follow district and state policies when making decisions/Scott Maben, SR. More here.

Question: Will the Coeur d'Alene School Board give this grievance a fair hearing?
