Good morning from Jim Greenwald
Iíve read and scanned many of your messages, concerning this very serious issue. Let me make one thing perfectly clear, the school district led by me never, ever, tried to cover up or kick this, or any other past issues under the rug regarding inappropriate actions by a staff member. Once we received word of these actions they were addressed at once. Also comments were made about me ďwalkingĒ during these times. I retired on June 30, 2020 and my retirement had been in the proper channels of the teachers retirement pipeline for 5 years prior to that date. My leaving had nothing to do with any issues. Those of you who know me are aware I was a tireless worker and gave the students and families of Granite City my 24/7 dedication. There was never a tough call that I didnít take on full steam. Itís easy to take shots and make statements on these sites when people donít really know the facts. I hope justice gets served here, and Iím sure it will. Make a great day, Jim Greenwald.
