FEB 12 2001--LARKINS WAS
REMOVED

SUPERINTENDENT WERLIN
DUE TO ALLEGATIONS THAT
SHE WAS GOING TO KILL
TWO TEACHERS.


MAR 24 2001-LARKINS WAS
ASKED TO RETURN
TO HER CLASSROOM WITH
NO INVESTIGATION.


MAR 27 2001-LARKINS WAS
TOLD NOT TO
RETURN
TO DISTRICT PROPERTY.


APR 4, 2001--LARKINS WAS
ASKED TO RETURN TO
HER CLASSROOM WITH NO
INVESTIGATION.

APR 20 2001-LARKINS WAS
TOLD NOT TO
RETURN
TO DISTRICT PROPERTY.


APR 21, 2001--
A POLICE PRESENCE
WAS ESTABLISHED AT
CASTLE PARK ELEMENTARY
SCHOOL WHICH CREATED
AN IMPRESSION IN THE
COMMUNITY THAT LARKINS
WAS DANGEROUS.


SEPT 2001--LARKINS WAS
ORDERED TO
RETURN
TO WORK
WITHOUT ANY
INVESTIGATION.


SHE FELT SHE WAS
NOT SAFE
AT WORK AND
REFUSED TO RETURN
UNTIL THE ALLEGATIONS
HAD BEEN RETRACTED.


NO INVESTIGATION
WAS EVER DONE BY
CVESD.

INSTEAD, CVESD
ALTERERED
DOCUMENTS AND
SUBORNED PERJURY.
JUNE 2001--AT THE REQUEST OF
PETITIONER'S ATTORNEY, THE
DISTRICT AGREED TO INVESTIGATE
ALLEGATIONS AGAINST LARKINS.

JULY 2001--THE SUPERINTENDENT
REFUSED TO REMOVE MR. WERLIN
AS SUPERINTENDENT'S DESIGNEE
FOR HANDLING LARKINS'
GRIEVANCES;

AUG 13, 2001--LARKINS WAS TOLD
SHE WOULD BE ON
ADMINISTRATIVE LEAVE THE
FOLLOWING YEAR.
Cheryl Cox, Patrick Judd,
Pamela Smith, Bertha Lopez
and Larry Cunningham,
board members of CVESD,
ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL
THE DECISIONS BY CVESD IN
THIS CASE.  

IS THE PROBLEM
INCOMPETENCE,
CORRUPTION, OR A BIT OF
EACH?


Clearly, CVESD did not believe the  
SERIOUS-AS-LIFE-AND-DEATH
allegations against Maura Larkins in
2001, or they would not have
continually asked her to return to
work without an investigation.

But the district wanted Larkins to
keep silent about problems at Castle
Park Elementary.

Every time Larkins complained that
the clique of teachers who controlled
the school was out of control, the
district retaliated against her.

Yet just three years later, the
district admitted by its actions that
Larkins was right: the district
transferred five teachers out of the
school. The school has now had
eleven principals in eleven years.

The same teachers now control the
school from the outside: one of
them,
Peg Myers, is now president
of
Chula Vista Educators.
Superintendent Lowell Billings would
have been smarter to have nipped
the problems in the bud back in
2001, when the clique committed
crimes against Maura Larkins.
