How come Elena did not put a link to the report as she does in other cases? It would really help to see the report, but perhaps Elena was asked to keep information away from the public. Overall not a good article for something of this magnitude. This is probably why Gloria's attorney says that nothing happened. The article does not give justice to Todd Gaviglio. I hope Elena uploads a copy of the investigation report soon. I can just imagine it.

This explains why Gloria did not give the principal position to Ms. Michelle the assistant principal when she was going to promote Ms. Chin to Assistant Superintendent at the Student Services. She preferred not to give Ms. Chin the position than hiring Ms. Michelle because unfortunately for Gloria she had a baby, and of course the ignorant board members allow her to do this. They could not control her anymore.

It seems to me like Gina the acting superintendent was involved too. I do not believe that she told Gloria about the complaint until the March 20, when Gaviglio turned nun on the 27, And he was removed on the 19. I am wonder why the investigator did not look into this. I’m wonder if Gina would still say that if she was giving her testimony onderoath. I guess not because she could get in jail for perjury. I’m sure it was not her choice, but she had to lie to cover for Gloria or else, she would have no job. As much as the teachers love her, if the board really want to improve ravenswood so parents won’t take the students out of the district, every one who work with Gloria and cover for her shaouldnleave, otherwise things will be the same for ever. The new board members have a great opportunity to change the culture of corruption, Hope they do not waiste it and regret later. Do the right thing board members, Clean house.
