...Sternberg said yesterday that D'Amico, who agreed to the penalty, will have his pay withheld for the month's suspension. During his probation, he will meet twice a month with Deputy Superintendent Kathy Greider to review his performance....
...Later D'Amico told his supervisors that the practice was a long-standing one that could be found in the handbook, though he neglected to say he added the section only after the run-in with the parent, according to the district. He also later failed to correct officials, including Sternberg, when they talked to him and appeared under the impression that the section had been in the handbook the entire time, according to the district's account. D'Amico, on another occasion, was untruthful to officials about when he added the section, the district said....
....D'Amico has been principal since 2005 and made a salary of $132,000 last year.
