"I will at all times think in terms of 'students first,' always determining other important things according to how they affect the education and development of students." Paragraph 1, Williamson Co. Board of Education Code of Ethics.

Since Susan Curlee began serving on the Williamson County School board in September 2014, she has:

Publicly attacked parents, board members, and the Superintendent of Schools. Dr. Mike Looney, on her Facebook page, on other social media, and at board meetings.

Appeared on radio, Fox TV broadcasts, and in print media, accusing Dr. Looney and some board members of lies and malfeasance. Such accusations themselves were lies and gross distortions of facts, including claims that Dr. Looney misspent district funds, failed to provide requested information to her, and that he organized a mandatory meeting of teachers on school time to engage in political disussions. None of these claims have been subsequently borne out by any evidence or facts.

Repeatedly gone outside board policies and procedures to raise concerns she has about the operations of Williamson Co. Schools, when her job as a board member is to set board policy, and allow Dr. Looney to perform his job and operate the daily affairs of WCS.

Engaged in a pattern of questionable and hostile treatment of our district superintendent, resulting in the filing of a hostile work environment claim against her; and most recently on 6/25/15, appearing on a local radio show and stating that she is ready to call for Dr. Looney’s resignation.

Citizens of Curlee’s district researched options for recall earlier this year, and found that there are none. Upon that finding, approximately 40 citizens of the district asked the Williamson County School Board to censure Curlee, but the board failed to act on the censure resolution, as they did not think it was an appropriate action at the time.

We, the undersigned citizens of Williamson County, find Ms. Curlee's actions unacceptable, as they have placed our top-performing district at risk of losing a strong, visionary, and principled leader.

We are, again, exercising our rights and responsibilities as citizens to make our voices heard.

Signers of this petition respectfully communicate a loss of confidence in Ms. Curlee, as a member of the Williamson County School Board, to serve the students and families of Williamson County Schools.

By signing this petition, we call for Ms. Curlee’s immediate resignation.
