No comments yet, seriously? Both Woodside and Las Lomitas School Districts need to pay attention. The Almanac has posted many articles on Ms. Polito that would make me not want to hire her for any job. I know many teachers have been reluctant to talk to me about her as if they are scared. It's like she is a mini Trump administration. Do your research here Las Lomitas! I suggest the Woodside district do exit interviews of their former employees. It's as if they don't want to know what is going on in their own district. And I suggest Las Lomitas talk to current and former employees of Beth's as well. I notice the reporter Barbara Wood who has negatively reported on Ms. Polito in the past is not the writer of this article. Interesting.

My children are enrolled in the LLESD and this news makes me so sad. Given the geography of the two school districts one can only conclude that Ms. Polito already knows the toxic duo of Lisa Cesario and Shannon Potts. One can only conclude she will have been influenced in her opinions about the district by them. If the commotion surrounding the promotion of Shannon Potts served a purpose besides making her richer, it was that it exposed that Lisa and Shannon and the school board are all clearly out of touch with the state of the school district. I know many in the community hoped for a fresh start. This is not fresh start. It looks like a substitution off the bench. Ms. Polito, I beg you, go to the teachers and find out what has been going on. Listen to them and allow them to speak open and honestly and not put a positive spin on everything for their new boss. Find out the truth. You won't get that from the school board or district administration.
