Looks like the rumor mill is running full-tilt at the Fishwrap online over the new OJR Superintendent of Schools leaving. The OJR School Board rushed to hire a replacement for wrongfully terminated Myra Forrest and less than two years later the new guy resigns. All the details are “confidential”?? Smells like day-old fish guts to me.
Despite all the “drama” this has caused and the pall it has cast over the Owen J. Roberts School District, the students suffer when there are too many turnovers. It seems more than coincidental that this guy is “outta here” already. If it is just “bad timing” then more of an explanation is due OJR taxpayers without violating anyone’s “confidentiality”.
The board owes it to OJR taxpayers and students to do a better job of selecting a candidate who is “in it for the long haul”. Continuity is important and we are talking about educating our children – not hiring someone to run the fryer at Mickey D’s. You had a perfectly good superintendent, who was totally committed to the district, and you fired her for no good reason!
