INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Just one month after Roncalli High School told the father of a suspended guidance counselor his services were no longer needed at the school, lawyers for Shelly Fitzgerald are preparing to file an additional EEOC charge.

David Page, Fitzgerald’s lawyer, confirmed to News 8 he will be filing an additional EEOC charge of retaliation against Roncalli High School next week.

Page says Roncalli directly retaliated against Shelly Fitzgerald when they “went after her father.”

Patrick Fitzgerald was told by the school administration in January he would no longer be invited to work at Roncalli’s Senior Retreat.

Patrick reportedly spent 26 years working with the program. 

Shelly said her father told her he was “heartbroken” after school officials told him because of “issues over the last five months” he would not be invited back. 

After Shelly was suspended for her same-sex marriage, she filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
