San Juan Unified School District Superintendent Glynn Thompson
SACRAMENTO - Embattled San Juan Unified School District Superintendent Glynn Thompson has resigned.
The district's Board of Education voted 4-0 Thursday morning to accept Thompson's resignation in lieu of termination for cause following an investigation into formal complaints of discrimination, harassment and retaliation against female district employees.
Thompson was placed on paid leave in May. He will remain on leave with his retirement becoming effective Jan. 16, 2014, according to the district.
District trustee Larry Masuoka recused himself from the vote. He was named in the complaints. The investigation concluded two of the accusations against Masuoka were supported.
Board Vice President Pam Costa was also named in the complaints. The investigation did not find those allegations sustained.
Thompson was named interim superintendent in May 2011 and became superintendent in April 2012.
