Board Dismisses Former Band Director’s Complaint

As Bradford Pearson noted back in November, John Gurke, former assistant band director at Highland Park High School, was dismissed for lack of a teaching certificate.

Well, Gurke’s name came up again at a regular trustee meeting earlier this week, when he filed a Level Three grievance (appeal to the school board). That was dismissed, too, because Gurke “ended up not satisfying the procedural requirements necessary to proceed,” said board president Leslie Melson.

No further details were provided.
