Can I file an employer discrimination suit if I am not afforded an opportunity for a promotion? I have been at my job for over 6 years. I have received 5 out of 6 excellent annual reviews. I had tried to start a charter school in my district about 3 years ago due to the poor performance of the district schools. I was told from the new principal that he wanted me to be his assistant principal. The assistant superintendent agreed with promoting me as well, however the superintendent refuses to promote me stating that she does not feel I am loyal to the district. I grew up in this district and returned to work. I am the senior administrator in the high school where I work. I am of mixed races while the superintendent is Caucasian. Any guidance you give is appreciated. I feel I am being discriminated on the basis of trying to have opened a charter school. My work that I have done in the district has reflected my ability to perform as an assistant principal along with my 2 master's degrees.
