    Superintendent Migliorino discouraged NPS staff from taking part in teacher’s strike

    An email sent by Norman Public Schools Superintendent Nick Migliorino to NPS staff and board members suggested that their continued involvement in the work stoppage would invite criticism from the community.

    In the email sent Friday April 13, Migliorino suggested that any teachers requesting time off to attend continued rallies at the capitol should rescind their requests for additional leave.

    Migliorino characterized unauthorized absences and further participation in the walk out as something that could cause “willful harm to our students” and risk “inviting avoidable criticism from the community.”

    Migliorino said:

    We are providing association leave expressly for the purpose of
    preventing teachers and staff from misusing leave and inviting
    avoidable criticism from the community. Neither I, nor the Norman
    Board of Education, advocate or support misuse of leave or any actions
    that cause willful harm to our students. Such conduct cannot be
    condoned as it runs counter to the mission and values of our district.
    Those who have already submitted absences for Monday, under the false
    impression that would be supported, should take steps to reverse those
    actions.
