Vallejo school district Superintendent Adam Clark confirmed Monday that district employees are free to support “other endeavours” like the ELITE Public Charter School petition.
The Times-Herald posed the question to Clark after two senior Vallejo City Unified School District administrators have publicly shown support for a charter school proposal from Ramona Bishop.
Bishop was the VCUSD Superintendent from 2011 until she was fired, without cause, earlier this year by district trustees.
Edison Kelly, VCUSD’s director of alternative education, is listed as one of ELITE’s founding members, according to the petition. The others are Bishop and Bel Reyes.
Towards the end of the petition, the district’s Chief Partnerships & Community Engagement Officer Alana Shackelford signed her name in support of the charter.
