Everitt checking out early?

In a Journal article (sub req), it was revealed that Everitt's no show, at the contentious board meeting where the issue of arming APS police officers was resolved, had raised the ire of a few school board members.

"We don't seem to be functioning with a superintendent who is focused." said board member Marty Esquivel. On a recent appearance on a radio talk show, Esquivel made reference to a leadership vacuum that had precipitated unnecessary problems with regard to the recent revelations of practicing pedophiles in two schools.

The Journal article also revealed that Everitt has accumulated four months worth of personal days. Apparently, she operates under different rules than teachers, who are not allowed to accumulated personal leave. (beyond 2 or 3 days)

Rigo Chavez is quoted as saying, she has only taken seven personal days since she announced her "retirement" in July.
