West Contra Costa Unified District Board President Tom Panas said in a statement that no action was taken at a special meeting Friday night to determine the performance of Superintendent Matthew Duffy.

“The purpose of the meeting was to consider the performance of the superintendent and to consider if the board would take any action.The board unanimously agrees that it will not take any action at this time,” according to the statement.

Earlier in the week, Board member Mister Phillips penned an opinion piece stating he believed the meeting was called with the potential aim of terminating Duffy as the district struggles with a $48M deficit. Phillips recommended against terminating Duffy at this time. Phillips’ statement here: Phillips’ statement here: http://bit.ly/2rLq7SQ
