From Teton Valley News:
The evening culminated in an emotional and convicted apology from Woolstenhulme, who admitted to acting hastily in suspending “Bless Me, Ultima” from the curriculum without following the proper procedures dictated by district policy 4120. He said he breeched the trust of the high school staff and the administration under his supervision.
“It’s very important to build trust in our community and in our school district, and I take responsibility for times this year when either my actions or decisions I think have broken down that trust,” said Woolstenhulme in his final recommendation and closing statement to those in attendance. “I recognize that I acted hastily on this, and I see the concern and the issue that the teachers have…[Policy 4120] is the guide that I recognize, I admit and I apologize, I should have been following very specifically. The teachers were working through it, Mr. Mello was working through it and I’m the one that failed and did not follow this policy. That being said, I would recommend that we do allow the English department to use this book. We can go through this grievance policy with those people that have these concerns.”
