For a long time, only her school board campaign Gmail address was shown. I questioned that early on. When she took office (even illegitimately), the District should have created an official email address for her, and that official email address should have been used for ALL school business.
There is a solid reason for that, and it's called the Freedom of Information Act.
The school district very likely faces a huge risk by her use of a personal Gmail address. Teresa can delete email at will, and she could even close that email address account. If she did, then all the "official" school-business email would be lost.
Someday all that email will be lost; for example, if she is not re-elected this November. Will she deliver that account to Richland 2, where an Administrator will change the password to preserve all the school-related emails? Wanna bet?
Within the past month or two I saw, for the first time, an @richland2.org email address for Holmes. It was added to the Board Member page. But her personal campaign email address is still there.
Is it because Teresa is "special"? How can she get to say that she wants her personal email address shown?
There should be a District procedure, rule, even Policy that a school board member uses only an email address on the District's server for official email.
Does Teresa "tell" Administration that she wants her personal email address shown? Does she "tell" the superintendent to put it there and leave it there? Why doesn't the superintendent tell her that using her personal email address for school business is wrong?
Why don't the other board members tell her to use her official email address (only) for school business and tell Administration to remove Teresa's Gmail address?
If there were a Motion to remove Teresa's Gmail address, a Second and Discussion, how would the vote go?
For: Agostini, McFadden
Against: Holmes, McKie, Caution-Parker, Manning, Scott (Scott also uses a personal Gmail address)
Result? Motion Fails
