J-E Board of Education rejects settlement proposal offers

— “If they disagree with me they have no problem publicly or privately telling me so.”

The BOE was adamant in also rejecting lawyer Harris Lindenfeld’s proposal in which he offered to settle litigation on behalf of his client, former director of operations Paula VanMinos, in the amount of $168,000, a little more than half of the $308, 000 she contends was guaranteed in her contract.

“Basically for the same reasons,” Froio said, “I do not think this is in the best interest of the district. There was a question asked today about do we believe about going back and forth … and yeah, I threw out a number. It was zero. And that’s the number that I think is in the best interest of the school district.”
