In a last-ditch effort to sway Benicia Unified School District officials, a pair of Benicia High School teachers spoke to the Board of Trustees Thursday and urged that Principal Gary Jensen not be let go.
“I think you are making a big mistake by getting rid of Gary Jensen,” said Lisa Honeycutt, chair of the school’s English department. “I am very sad to see him go.”
Jensen was hired in 2009. The district has been actively seeking his replacement since April 10. Questions about the cause of his dismissal have gone unanswered because of district policy regarding discussion of “personnel matters.”
