Was PAUSD uninformed and unaware of Mr. Krolikowski's role in the student first amendment case that SRVUSD settled recently for $665,000 and by issuing an apology?

[Portion remove.] San Ramon Valley High was the only high school in the district that allowed PE swimming with PE teachers that all had expired life guard certificates. [Portion removed.] The school district settled for 8 million dollars for the negligent drowning death of a 15 year old boy

His past behavior shows a lack of character that makes him ill suited to have anything to do with our children. [Portion removed.]

Given the history of past Paly administrators, he seems to fit right in. Neglecting student safety and squashing student's rights. Seems to be made in the mold of Winston Diorio, Paulson and their charges.

Why can't PAUSD due their job, which is to protect students? Who is doing the hiring here? Don Austin? PAUSD Board members?
Who approved of this hire?

Why are we taking the left overs of what other school boards do not want? Why are we hiring people who have been involved in scandals and lawsuits?

Why are we hiring people who are accused of not protecting students and allowing bullying to occur to students, and were in some way or fashion involved in it themselves?

Below is a link to the fact that Mr Krolikowski was suspended from 2 games and placed on probation for 1 year. Because he threatened officials. Krolikowski comments were not even in the heat of a game they were his comments after a game. Mr Krolikowski failure to not accept accountability shows a significant character flaw.

"The Cardinals' fifth-year coach was suspended for two games for an incident after last week's nonleague loss at Sacred Heart Prep of Atherton. Krolikowski said his postgame comments directed at officials were taken as a threat, and the officials complained to the San Francisco Unified School District, which then handed down the suspension and put the coach on a one-year probation.
