On the Web: Former Geneva Principal Files Discrimination Complaint Against District 304

Report: Complaint of age and gender discrimination added to civil suit by former Heartland Elementary School principal.

The Kane County Chronicle's Brenda Schory reports Thursday that former Heartland Elementary School Principal Margaret Pennington has added a complaint with the Illinois Human Rights Commission to her civil suit against Geneva School District 304.

Among other things, the age- and gender-discrimination complaint says the district paid Pennington less than two younger, less-experienced male elementary-school principals.

Pennington was moved from principal to a school administrative position after she received a negative review in 2009.

School District 304 Superintendent Kent Mutchler told the Chronicle that the bulk of Pennington's complaint was "patently false," and  School District attorney James Petrungaro has filed a motion to dismiss the complaint, according to the Chronicle.

Geneva Patch reported on the on April 22.
