Six days after putting Superintendent Rhonda Corr on paid leave pending disciplinary action, Dayton Public Schools officials again Monday refused to publicly release details of the allegations against Corr.
Reached by text message, Corr said that as of Monday afternoon, she had not received a notice of the allegations either. She referred all other questions to her attorneys, who could not immediately be reached for comment.
8 WEEKS AGO: School board gives Corr glowing evaluation
Last Tuesday, the school board passed a resolution stating that it would issue a pre-disciplinary hearing notice to Corr, “detailing the reasons for potential discipline.” Those notices generally include a hearing date for the accused to tell their side of the story.
On Monday, DPS attorney Jyllian Bradshaw said that the hearing notice was “not yet complete,” echoing comments that school board President Robert Walker made last Wednesday. Bradshaw said the document will be issued this week.
Dayton’s school board is scheduled to meet at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday. As of Monday afternoon, the only item on the agenda was a discussion of DPS’ preschool program, but school board agendas have often changed at the last minute.
The school board voted 6-0 last week to relieve Corr of her duties and to elevate Elizabeth Lolli from associate superintendent to acting superintendent.
The only specific issue mentioned at the time was a racial harassment and discrimination report. But school board member Joe Lacey clarified later that separate allegations against Corr, not related to the racial discrimination claim, are the reason Corr has been put on leave.
