As residents within the Canyons School District, the allegations regarding the superintendent from the KSL piece on 4/13 are very concerning and disturbing. Hopefully they are not true.  However, if these allegations are true and if they reveal a pattern of the current administration’s management style, we have grave concerns about the current superintendent’s ability to successfully serve us and our children. Given such, we respectfully ask the board to do the following:


Authorize an outside, independent, third party investigation into the allegations that will seek to understand truth from error in an objective manner regarding these allegations.

Authorize an independent, anonymous third party survey that will be offered to teachers, administrators and employees of the Canyons District to allow them to make their voice heard without fear of retribution from their employer.

Make appropriate decisions regarding the leadership of the district based on the outcome of the two points above.

If the allegations are not true, the process outlined above will bring that to light as well, which would be extremely important.

      I was a student in Canyons School District and my school was personally affected by Dr. Doty. It's important as Americans to be able to stand up and speak our minds without fear of others in higher positions. I see no harm in creating a survey that will allow others to speak their opinions about the school board without retribution. There's absolutely nothing wrong with that. As students in school, we were given surveys of the school to complete about how we felt about our education and our teachers and if we felt safe in school. Why shouldn't we be able to survey the school board? Obviously, there is something not right about the way Canyons School District is being represented and it needs to stop, for the benefit of everyone connected to it. Whether Dr. Doty really is at fault for the things accused of him or not is up to the investigation to find out. And I think it is needed to investigate after so many people have come out against him. I know for one how Dr. Doty comes across and how intimidating he can seem, so I am signing this petition to assure that our school board is on the right track. It is important that everyone--teachers, students, administrators, and the like feel safe to speak their mind without retribution. It is an American right, and if it is being neglected, it needs to be brought to attention.

      It appears that the superintendent is restricting the responsibility of board members to communicate with district employees and visa versa

      Because the education of our children is important to me, teachers are important to me, and freedom of speech is important to me.
