    Why does it matter what policies a principal in another school district follows? What matters is the policy of the Mt. Vernon School District, not his district. Freshwater’s attorney must not realize that. The district has 5 days planned this round which, hopefully, will put this to an end. Wasting one of those days for this principals testimony is wasting at least one of those days and costing the District even more money than they have already spent. I just wonder how the Freshwater family can afford for him to be out of work for so long. Is his church supporting him so the chuch can push their agenda onto other students in the district if they should win? They probably think that other religions are wrong and only theirs is the truth.
