District 186 Teacher On Payroll with No Job
District 186 Teacher On Payroll with No Job
 A Springfield School District 186 employee linked to the Capital College Preparatory Academy student ISAT test score leak will not be appointed as a guidance dean of Washington Middle School, following a 4-3 vote by the school board.
The board voted down an idea that would have reassigned the employee to a guidance dean position, effective August 19, 2013. Following the vote, a motion was tabled which would have placed a warning in the employee’s file.

Can the employee be trusted again? “In my opinion, yes. I’m not sure (that I want) to be the purity police,” said School Board President Chuck Flamini. He says he believes even though a mistake was made, the employee can be trusted again. He was in favor of the move.

Flamini was unsure of what the next step will be. He said, “Something has to happen. Something happened to two other employees.” He added that answers will be coming at the next meeting, scheduled for Monday, June 3.
