MissionLoc@l brings us an unfortunate story about the latest controversy surrounding Sheila Milosky, the controversial principal of Paul Revere School. Apparently, Milosky was arrested in Marin last weekend for a DUI hit and run:
Sheila Sammon Milosky, the principal at The Paul Revere School in Bernal Heights, was arrested on suspicion of a DUI and a hit and run, reports the Marin Independent Journal. At 12:15 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, “a white 2011 Dodge Avenger with a Colorado license plate allegedly struck a Hyundai Tucson and a Lincoln Town Car just south of the Golden Gate Bridge,” says the report.
“The Avenger didn’t stop and continued heading north. The victims pulled over at Vista Point and called the CHP, which tracked down the suspect car,” it continues.
“Officers arrested Sheila Milosky, a 50-year-old Mill Valley resident, on suspicion of driving under the influence with blood-alcohol levels higher than .08 and hit and run.”
The San Francisco Unified School District said they are aware of the misdemeanor charges.
UPDATE: There’s more on the SFUSD’s response to the incident in the San Francisco Examiner:
The San Francisco Unified School District is aware of the arrest, spokeswoman Gentle Blythe said Monday.
“This incident occurred on a weekend and is unrelated to school activities,” Blythe said. “If she is convicted, by California law, a misdemeanor conviction in itself is not grounds for termination.”
Milosky, who took over at Paul Revere in 2010, underwent a background screening at the time of her employment, Blythe said. The district will “continue to monitor the situation,” she added.
The principal, who was hired to oversee federally mandated reforms at the troubled school, landed in hot water last fall after a group of parents accused her of deploying corporal punishment tactics. The allegations included physical punishment, restrictive bathroom policies, and silent lunches and recesses in the school’s basement.
