continued Scro, the former district treasurer, was terminated from his position in 2010. A Supreme Court judge ordered Scro to be reinstated, which was appealed, and Scro was ultimately told in September 2011 that his position would not be reinstated with the district. He has since filed in federal court for punitive damages related to his termination, saying the board of education and former board members have violated his First Amendment rights and caused defamation of character.
The board of education entered into executive session for discussion related to a particular person’s employment history, according to board president Brian Richardson. The executive session was called shortly after the meeting began, prior to the board’s action on any items.
Board member Dr. Michael Jorolemon spoke during the public comment section.
“I just want to congratulate [Superintendent Jim Froio] on making it six months with us,” Jorolemon said.
The next board of education meeting will be held at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18, in the high school large instruction room. The budget development update planned for Wednesday’s meeting was canceled.
