  • 1. A message to the Murphy School District Governing Board
  • 2. Although I could not be present at the board meeting; I did want to express some concerns I have as an employee in the Murphy School District.
  • 3. I was greatly saddened and disappointed when I saw the news broadcast on Dr. Mohr.
  • 4. Dr. Mohr is a grown man who runs our schools and makes decisions for our children. Because of his choices, I am concerned for the future of our district, and our children.
  • 5. We teach our kids to become contributing members of society; to make good choices. However, by allowing Dr. Mohr to continue as a LEADER of this district we are upholding a double-standard for our children and families.
  • 6. We let go a great number of wonderful teachers last year due to the fact that their credentials to be in the classroom were not met.
  • 7. Yet, if we let a Superintendent to continue in his position when his credentials are not met and have not been met for the past 5 years, what are we saying?
  • 8. We will be saying that: the rule of many is not the rule for one because of his leadership role.
  • 9. All standards for professionalism should be the same across the board, no matter if you are a teacher, and Instructional Assistant or the Superintendent of our district.
  • 10. I am ashamed of Dr. Mohr’s actions. I feel he disrespected his community of colleagues, families, and children.
  • 11. I will feel even more ashamed and disrespected if this is swept under the rug and consequences are not given where they well need to be.
  • 12. We need a Superintendent we can trust. One we can respect. This person is no longer Paul Mohr.
  • 13. Note: To protect the individual who wrote this letter as well as the source, we have not included any names. Thank you for sharing your concerns. If you would like to contribute to this effort, you may contact us through Facebook. We will honor confidentiality.
