Parent trying to recall entire Everett School Board
EVERETT — An Everett School District watchdog is trying to recall all five Everett School Board members on charges alleging the board is violating state law by lacking a state-mandated audit committee.
Parent Rodman Reynolds filed the recall on March 8. The recall is scheduled to go before a Snohomish County Superior Court Judge on April 5 to determine if the charges are valid and if Reynolds can collect signatures for a recall ballot initiative.
Board president Jeff Russell said last month the case is groundless and a “preposterous accusation.” Russell said he expects it to be dismissed.
The entire board handles audits as a committee of the whole, Russell said.
School district audits are routinely done in public. If the board created an audit committee, the meetings would not have to be public, Russell said.
Reynolds said the audit is about creating independent accountability. He alleges the school district steers audit decisions.
Reynolds said last month he’d pull the recall charge if the audit committee is formed.
Four of five board members will be receiving legal assistance from the district if the recall moves forward. The board approved that in a special March 21 meeting.
Outspoken school board member Jessica Olson declined asking for district legal support. Olson supports the recall.
