Summary (IA Generated)

The entire board of trustees for a Northern California school district resigned after they made inappropriate remarks about parents during a Zoom call that was unknowingly being broadcast to the public.

Oakley Union Elementary School District Superintendent Greg Hetrick in a letter to the district’s families Friday announced the board members’ resignations following their Wednesday meeting, a portion of which was recorded and posted on YouTube.

The board for the Oakley Union school district, serving about 5,000 students just east of San Francisco, in a Zoom call initially thought the meeting was not yet open to the public, according to ABC News.

In the call, part of which was posted to Twitter by NBC News Bay Area reporter Bigad Shabad, trustee Kim Beede could be heard saying, “Are we alone?” before adding, “B—- if you’re going to call me out, I’m going to f— you up.

School district thought they were meeting privately, they used profanity to insult & threaten parents upset by the district’s prolonged school closures.

At the end of the meeting, Brezendine apologized for the group’s earlier remarks, saying “We were having a private conversation because we were really struggling at that moment with all the board comments coming in because we want what’s best for the kids so badly.

Herrick also issued a statement apologizing for the incident, calling the members’ comments “truly inappropriate,” and on Friday announced to the community that the board had resigned.

The letter to the school district’s families included a statement from Beede, Masadas and fellow member Erica Ippolito, who wrote they “deeply regret the comments that were made,” and that they failed to fulfill their “responsibility to model the conduct that we expect of our students and staff,’ and their “obligation to build confidence in District leadership.
