SPS Committee Approves Raise for Superintendent Wilson

Anne Wilson's contract was changed as she will receive a 3 percent raise.

The Sudbury Public Schools Committee approved changes in the contract for Superintendent Anne Wilson during Wednesday night's meeting at the Sudbury Senior Center.

Wilson's contract now includes a 3 percent raise in compensation. The contract was previously negotiated in a private executive session and was approved during Wednesday night's regular meeting with very little discussion.

Wilson has been under scrutiny from parents and other residents this year after she was involved in the dismissal of longtime Noyes Elementary School teacher Janice Donahue back in May, which ended in a financial settlement. 

She also fired secretary Diane LaChapelle a year ago, which resulted in LaChapelle slapping a wrongful termination lawsuit against SPS and the Town of Sudbury. That case is still pending

And most recently, Curtis Middle School Administrator Peter Fardig resigned after he was put on paid leave and then had a 51A report filed against him.

Beeler and Iuliano are still high fiving each other on what a great hire Wilson was. She was barely in the seat when they gave her a glowing review and declared what a wonderful job they did. Remember this when Iuliano runs for Selectman next year.

Correct if I'm wrong but was'nt the fearless leader at Noyes Annette Doyle on the hiring squad as well?

Lisa and the rest of the lackies of SPSC. The arrogance that you have displayed has been both overwhelming and sickening. Are you living in a cacoon? What is Mrs. Wilson holding over you? In the real world performance and actions taken buy a supervisor would be questioned by his/her supervisor. The parents and taxpayers are her supervisors, but you as elected officials have neglected to listen to hers and your superiors. From all accounts Dr. Wilson is managing by fear. Teachers know that they can be accused by anyone. She doen't even seek out the explaination from the teacher or administrator, in Mr. Fardig case. She just files a 51A, and forces them to resign under the threat of immediate dismissal. In this country you are innocent until proven guilty, but not in the SPS. Dr. Wilson you have taken a page out of Josef Stalin's guide of management. For this you deserve a raise?? Shame on you SPSC !!!

I am incredibly frustrated with this news. Not only have we had the unexplained forced resignations of experienced teachers, I happen to know that extremely qualified, experienced teachers are being passed over for brand new, fresh out of college teachers for open positions at Curtis Middle School. The only explanation is to save money, and we're giving a RAISE to Anne Wilson. The quality of schools is becoming more and more comprimised, which affects our children and will ultimately affect the reputation of Sudbury and our property values. SPSC please listen to the residents!!
