Mr. Kurt A. Gladfelter was suspended without pay at Northern York County School District in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania for refusing to teach with a mask on 10/20/21.  He teaches High School Government, Economics and Vietnam War History.  He has previously spoken at school board meetings after our school board went from a 7-2 masks optional plan to quickly changing direction to following the unconstitutional and unlawful mask mandate put forth by the Acting Secretary of Health via direction of Governor Wolf.  

Mr. Gladfelter is not only a graduate from Northern York County School District, he has also been employed as a teacher there for over a decade.  He has two elementary aged children in the district as well.   

I am trying to raise funds to cover his unpaid suspension.  He has been asked to return to work on 10/24/21 for a hearing in which he will likely face further punishment and possibly termination of his employment with the school district.  

Please help and share this information.  He is literally one of the only teachers I know with the backbone to stand up to our spineless school board and administration.  

Here is a link to a change.org petition to save his job created by his students on 10/20/21.  https://chng.it/bcLChBn8mr 

Please pray for his safety, courage and bravery.  Our community is small, but we are mighty.  

--------------------------------------------------------
Update 10/27/21 Mr. Gladfelter attended a meeting on Monday 10/25/21 with administration at Northern York County School District.  He was told he will continue his unpaid suspension and will receive a written statement of charges. 

At the school board meeting on 10/26/21 the very muffled and masked board members broke off into an executive meeting after the board meeting agenda items had been discussed.  When they returned, they moved to approve (it was very unclear what they were saying) something about Mr. Gladfelter to complete a trial and have due process.  (These are not exact words, I'm not 100 percent sure what they were saying at all) but it was clear that it was about him and that they all voted to approve Mrs. McLean's movement to allow him to go through the process potentially leading to his termination.

He needs your help and your support.

Update 11/5/21
Mr. Gladfelter has found counsil to help him through this process.  He is expected to deliver a retainer fee (which is not a small sum of money).  He needs your help.  Please spread the word about his call to action as the only teacher in our district who has decided that what our school board and administration is doing is wrong to children, parents and staff.  Mr. Gladfelter prays the board will vote to follow the order as it was written, not as it's been interpreted by our solicitor.  Other disctricts in our county have done that and have not relinquished local control, have still made it possible for parents to write the exemptions and still allows parents and staff to choose what is best for them.  If our board returns to following the order as written, 504's will not be required or medical notes from Doctors, deeming our children and staff "disabled."  If our board votes to follow the order as written, our teachers, staff and children/parent teams will not face termination, will not be disciplined and will not be automatically enrolled in NOLA.  

Please get involved, and please share this information so that we can make it possible for Mr. Gladfelter to stand up for his and our children/staff's rights at our school district.  He stands up, we stand with him.

Pennsylvania Civics Teacher Removes Mask, Loses Job (theepochtimes.com)

Scaringi Law Firm to represent Mr. Gladfelter
November 15, 2021

Mr. Gladfelter's attorney, Jeffrey Schott, sent a letter to the school board on Friday, November 12.  The letter requesting that all charges against Mr. Gladfelter be dismissed and that he be reinstated with back pay.  

This retainer fee in and of itself is a large sum of money, not something a teacher could potentially afford, however, with the donations of the public and like-minded Pennsylvania parents, individuals and freedom fighters, the retainer was paid.  I am still hoping to raise enough to cover his unpaid suspenion (expecting the solicitor to deny the requests from his attorney) and to keep him going until the requested public hearing before the board.  We are still expecting more costs for Mr. Gladfelter so please keep sharing this donation page and speading the word about his efforts.  He couldn't have done this without you all.  

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.  Thank you.  



If there are any updates from the school board, I will keep you in the loop!!

Update on Mr. Gladfelter's status
November 5, 2021

Mr. Gladfelter has found counsel to help him through this process; someone who believes in what he is doing, agrees and wants to fight for him.  He is expected to deliver a retainer fee (which is not a small sum of money).  He needs your help.  Please spread the word to any that you know could contribute as the only teacher in our district who has decided that what our school board and administration is doing is wrong to children, parents and staff. 

I pray the school board will vote to follow the order as it was written, not as it's been interpreted by our solicitor.  (Our solicitor is evil and has been questioned on other immoral, illegal acts with other school districts in the past.) Other disctricts in our county have chosen to follow the order as it was written and they have not relinquished local control, have still made it possible for parents to write the exemptions and still allows parents and staff to choose what is best for them.  If our board returns to following the order as written, 504's will not be required or medical notes from Doctors, deeming our children and staff "disabled."  If our board votes to follow the order as written, our teachers, staff and children/parent teams will not face termination, will not be disciplined and will not be automatically enrolled in NOLA.  This would help Mr. Gladfelter's case tremendously but our school board has no plans to discuss voting to follow the order as written.

If our board returns to following the order as written, 504's will not be required or medical notes from Doctors, deeming our children and staff "disabled."  If our board votes to follow the order as written, our teachers, staff and children/parent teams will not face termination, will not be disciplined and will not be automatically enrolled in NOLA for choosing to stand up for their constitutional rights.

Please get involved, and please share this information so that we can make it possible for Mr. Gladfelter to stand up for his and our children/staff's rights at our school district. 

He stood alone, now we stand with him.
