How does $89,406 plus $20,000 (4 × $5,000 in 2032) add up to $200,000??

Or is it $20,000 paid four times for a total of $80,000 in 2032?

Still doesn't total $200,000.

I suspect the last paragraph is language taken directly from the press release. That doesn't make it clear.

Does PA Weekly need to put that the settlement "is not an admission of liability"? When has the district EVER admitted fault?

So, kids had fallen and injured themselves in the same manner and nothing was changed? I guess back then the district was too busy figuring out how to rename the schools or how to cover up the latest sexual assault.

It is so sad the District had not taken pro-active measures prior to any accident occurring at Ohlone Elementary School. Hopefully this Lawsuit will encourage the Palo Alto Unified School District to review every school campus' property for K-12 Student Safety and Welfare, then immediately renovate and repair.

I wonder how much they will pay out in COVID lawsuits once they reopen schools.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
