Conneaut teacher dismissal sought

The Conneaut School Board, by 7-1-1 tally at its Wednesday, April 12,voting meeting passed a motion to seek the dismissal of a Professional Employee and to inform that employee of the scheduling of a board hearing to consider the dismissal.

The action came following an executive session of the school board members, its lawyer, and superintendent.

The hearing is also subject to any rights the employee may have to elect grievance arbitration in following Public School Code which means the employee may decide not to have a hearing before the board and go to arbitration.

No details of the situation were discussed in public - the motion passed confirming action taken by the Schools Superintendent at a point previously.

As would be typical in such cases, details of the Superintendent’s action would not be discussed even in the executive session as the school board, if a hearing is held before them, must act as jury.

Voting to schedule the hearing were Don Ellis, Jr., Jamie Hornstein, Kathy Klink, Cheryl Krachkowski, Dot Luckock, Tim McQuiston, and David Schaef. John Burnham voted no. Board president Jody Sperry was absent from the meeting with Luckock conducting the meeting.
