While is is an unfortunate situation, how dare the L-H assume it is a "big distraction" for the administrators, teachers, and students. Has the editor walked around the building to see how things are progressing? Also, Tax: how in the world do you make this something to do with the teachers? It is clearly between the BOE and the superintendent. I can't believe the power people THINK teachers have. I suppose they caused last week's polar vortex, global warming, the holocaust....

Its a very expensive soap opera on the backs of the tax payers. Time to replace the current school board idiots with new bunch of school board idiots.

Glad I don't live in that district, I would not want these extra expenses. It is illegal to disclose personnel issues, but apparently is not criminal or we would have legal action taken. Lets hope they can get their house in order for the benefits of everyone in that district.

Paying someone that does not merit the job, to sit there doing nothing is a HUGE waste of taxpayer money. Find a way to make it work or cut the ties!

If the LH was to do it's homework they would discover that it's against the law for school boards to discuss personnel issues publically, but must do so in executive session. How long will it be before this paper does any research at all?

Six months later! - Paid leave! The school board was obviously ill-equipped to vet and hire to begin with - perhaps the school board should be replaced and an investigation begun into whether favoritism was involved in hiring someone who apparently was not qualified to do the job to begin with.

Where I grew up there is still one principal for each 2 grade schools and only one superintendent for the whole county. But of course that is NOT in NY state. This O-E situation borders on the ridiculous even by NYS standards.
