ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- A group of community members in the Jordan-Elbridge School District say they may consider taking legal action to remove board members.
The school board held a meeting Tuesday night, but just as they have for the past several weeks, talks were conducted behind closed doors. The frustration from the community stems from various issues within the district, including the suspension, firing and involuntary moves of several top administrators.
Several weeks ago, a group called the Concerned Citizens of Jordan-Elbridge submitted a list of 58 questions to the district about these issues. Tuesday, board members released their answers, but many of them are not specific. The board cites legal reasons.
The Concerned Citizens group has filed FOIL requests to get some of those answers and they say depending on what they find, there is a chance they could pursue removing board members.
"We just want to make sure that we are, as a community, coming to our board meetings and letting them know we are not going to forget this, that we want to continue to find out what's going on," said J-E parent Mary Jo Wick.
