Re: Notice of Proposed Discharge of Contract of Employment of Dr. Annette T. Griffin for Good Cause

Dear Dr. Griffin:

This letter is to notify you that the Board of Trustees of Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District has recommended and now proposes to terminate and discharge your Contract of Employment ("employment contract") with the District for good cause pursuant to Paragraph 6.3 of your employment contract and/or Section 21.211 of the Texas Education Code.

The Board of Trustees has determined at its meeting on Thursday, November 13, 2008, that each of the following acts, individually and collectively, constitute good cause for your termination:

1. Failure to maintain positive and professional working relationships with the Board and the community, unprofessional conduct, exercise of poor judgment, and violation of District policy and professional standards of conduct. On August 19, 2008 you attended Convocation Ceremony at Prestonwood Baptist Church, an event attended by all District

... _-._----_._-------_._-

employees. You were witnessed by members of the Board to be in a very confused and disoriented state. You told the speaker to leave because it was not Convocation, but rather a rehearsal for Convocation, when it was not rehearsal. You also asked many members of the Board why they were in attendance and questioned them as to why they were in attendance at the ceremony that day, explaining that Convocation was the next week.

2. Breach of your employment contract with the District and violation of District policy and professional standards of conduct by failing to attend summer school graduation at Newman Smith High School on August 21,2008.

,

3. Breach of your employment contract with the District by failing to attend or send a designated representative to meetings of the Board on the following occasions: (1) Special Meeting of the Board of Trustees on August 21, 2008, and (2) Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees on October 2,2008.

4. Failure to maintain positive and professional working relationships with the Board and the community, unprofessional conduct, exercise of poor judgment, and violation of District policy and professional standards of conduct by deceiving the Board of Trustees. On August 26, 2008 you sent an e-mail to the Board to explain your absence from the Special Meeting of the Board of Trustees on Thursday, August 21, 2008, in which you misled the Board by failing to report in your e-mail that you had been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated ("DWI") on August 21, 2008.

/'

5. Failure to report to the State Board of Education ("SBEC") your arrest for DWI that occurred on August 21, 2008. Texas Educ. Code § , 21.006(b) requires the Superintendent of a school district to report to SBEC if the superintendent or director has reasonable cause to believe that an educator has a criminal record or has engaged in specified criminal conduct, which includes information about an arrest. You had firsthand knowledge of your arrest and failed to file the report with SBEC within seven (7) days of the incident as required by Texas Educ. Code § 21.006( c).

-----,-------

6. Breach of your employment contract with the District by failing to submit to a comprehensive medical examination by a physician acceptable to both the Board and the Superintendent, once a year, and to obtain a statement certifying that you are physically able to perform your duties. Prior to October 9,2008, the Board of Trustees requested a medical statement on numerous occasions and you continually failed to submit a statement certifying that you are physically able to perform your duties.

7. Failure to maintain positive and professional working relationships with the Board and the community, unprofessional conduct, exercise of poor judgment, and violation of District policy and professional standards ofconduct by misrepresenting to three members of the Board during an investigation into your ability to perform your duties, and whether your behavioral problems were alcohol related. On October 6, 2008, John Tepper, Lynn. Chaffin, and Howard Fisher met with you to discuss concerns regarding your behavior. You were questioned regarding whether your behavior was related to alcohol consumption. You stated that you were fine and that nothing was wrong with you. This October 6, 2008 meeting occurred after you had been arrested for DWI on August 21, 2008. You had an opportunity to report your DWI arrest and you chose to mislead the Board.

8. Failure to maintain positive and professional working relationships with the Board and the community, unprofessional conduct, exercise of poor judgment, and violation of District policy and professional standards of conduct by misrepresenting facts to members of the Board during an investigation into your arrest on August 21, 20US, for violating Texas Penal Code 49.04, Driving While Intoxicated: - On or about Monday, October 20, 2008, you were visited at your home by John Tepper and Lynn Chaffin, President and Vice-President of the Board, respectively. Together, they questioned you about a newspaper report of your DWI arrest on August 21, 2008. You denied the occurrence of such arrest, thereby making a false statement of fact to two (2) members of the Board to mislead and deceive them.

3

9. Breach of your employment contract with the District and defiance of the directives given to you by the Board of Trustees in the letter to you dated October 10, 2008 informing you that you were relieved of your duties and directed to refrain from serving as a representative of the

District at public events, private events, conferences, and speaking engagements. In direct disregard of that directive, you attended the USAA Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee on or about October 21,2008 - October 26,2008, and you improperly utilized the District's pre-paid airline tickets for the trip to Nashville, improperly used the District's credit card to charge four (4) days of hotel expense at Loews Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville in the amount of $1,655.38 to the District, and upon your return from Nashville you submitted $1,655.38 in hotel bills and $ 314.20 in automobile rental charges due to Hertz Car Rental, a total of$1,969.58 in expenses to the District for payment. The District has advised you that these are personal expenses, and you are personally responsible for paying them.

I

10. While at the USAA Annual Conference in Nashville, Tennessee you

drank alcohol to excess and, upon information and belief, you acted inappropriately in a public place in view of members of the public and behaved in an unprofessional manner.

11. Breach of your employment contract with the District and violation of District policy and professional standards of conduct by failing to regularly attend scheduled Superintendent's Cabinet meetings throughout May, June, July, August, and September of 2008.

12. Breach of your duties and responsibilities as Superintendent of Schools by conducting yourself in such a manner that your effectiveness as the Superintendent of Schools for the District has been diminished and significantly impaired to the point where the District's reputation and standing with parents, students and the general public would be significantly damaged if you were to remain as the Superintendent of Schools through the term of your contract. You can no longer be an effective leader, role model, and Superintendent of Schools.

I

Your conduct as detailed above both individually and collectively is inconsistent with the continuance of your employment relationship with the District and constitutes good cause for your proposed termination.

The evidence against you that the events occurred and that termination and discharge are appropriate include, but are not limited to:

THE STATE OF TEXAS'§

§' A.FFIDA VIT FOR .ARREST WARRANT OR CAPIAS

COUNTY OF DALLAS §

BEFORE ME, the undersigned authority, on this daypersonally appeared the undersigned affiant who, after being duly sworn by me, on oath stated: My name is C. Catchings, and r am a peace officer cjf the County of Dallas, T.exas. r have good reason to believe and do believe that on or about 0812112008. one Griffin. Annette ~.dld then and thereln the county ofTarrftut, Texas commit the offense ofDl'iviug WhJle Intoxicated. Texas Penal ~ # 49.04 a Misdemeanor B. My belief is based 'upon the following facts and information:

Officer{s) E. Beene 11608, DFW Airport DPS, who participated in the investigation of the alleged following

information: ".

1. On 812!/~008, at approximately 1909 hours, DFW Airport Police Officer Beene was dispatched to" 1400 South International Parkway, North Toll Plaza In- reference to a Motorist Assist. Communications then advised the driver was possibly intoxicated. Upon arrival Officer Beene observed a vehicle stopped in entrance Jane #12 at the North Toll.Plaza, The brake lights were illuminated on the vehicle. Officer Beene observed the driver seated in the driver seat of the vehicle with th~ vehicle in Drive. The driver was asked several times to put the vehicle in Park.

II. When the driver was asked for bet driver license, she attempted several times to give Officer Beene l)er~_ •• ck h ~().. \ 30

!!qR~ m up bag, and cell phone. The driver was identified as Annette Teer Griffin (W/F 06/13/1946 _ _

i~" Officer Beene could smell the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage about Mrs. Griffm's brea when

she spoke fficer Beene asked Mrs. Griffin "haw much have you had to drink?" Mrs. Griffin would only state

"yah."

m. Officer Beene attempted to administer the Horizontal Gaze Nystagmus, Due to Mrs. Grlffin's level of intoxication' she wa~ unable ~o follow instructions and could not hold her head Still. After several attempts, Officer Beene moved onto the second test. Officer Beene administered the Walk and Tum and observed six of a possible eIght clues. Officer Beene administered the One Leg Stand and observed three of a possible four clues. Officer Beene administered a PBT to Mrs. Griffin due to her not being able to fQIlQW simple instructions, which revealed a 0.19 alcohol concentration.

TV. Based on Mrs. Griffin being stopped in a traffic lane, being involved in an accident, and the field sobriety tests, it is in Officer Beene's opinion that Mrs. Griffin could not safely operate a motor vehicle due to not having the normal use of her mental or physical faculties by reason of the introduction of alcohol into her body, Mrs. Griffin was placed under arrest for Driving While Intoxicated,

V. Mrs. Griffin was read the Statutory Warning and asked for a specimen of her breath which she consented. Officer' Beene' administered the Intoxilyzer 5000 toMrs, Griffin. The first breath specimen result was 0.187 gl21 0 L alcohol concentration and the second breath specimen result was 0.181 g1210 L alcohol concentratlon.

VI. Annette Teer Griffin is charged with Driving wilile Intoxicated as per Texas Penal Code 49.04 .
