I was living on Camano Island at the time, but I didn't know about the controversy until it was over.
Here's a link to the Stanwood-Camano 2002 school district employees.http://lbloom.net/zs02.html
September 2002 update. Many of the 1994 school board members were voted out of office, and many of the named school district administrators are gone from the Stanwood-Camano school district.
