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.
