Rejoice with retirement


Say it ain’t so, Joe! West Valley School District Superintendent Polly Crowley is either resigning or retiring June 30, depending on which word you choose from the article in The Spokesman-Review. Why? What school administrator, with a cushy $249,000 a year salary, overseeing a district with less than 5,000 students, walks away from it?

Guilt? Nah! Our lavishly paid super has something else planned. Lobbyist for the Washington Education Association, maybe? How about a political appointment from our outgoing governor? Possibly. No matter what it is she plans, everyone within her realm will pay a hefty price for her presence! Anyway, my wallet thanks her also for leaving!
