Greece Central School District has settled a $1 million age discrimination lawsuit with elementary school teacher Mary Donlon for $235,000.
According to the lawsuit, Donlon complained in 2005 to former superintendent Steven Walts that she was being evaluated unfairly and passed over for summer school positions because of her age. Shortly after, Walts recommended her for dismissal, Donlon claimed.
The district has recently paid more than $500,000 to settle five EEOC discrimination lawsuits—including Donlon’s—against Walts’ administration.
