Ferguson-Florissant School Board moving forward with termination hearing for superintendent

The Ferguson-Florissant School District is moving forward with plans to terminate Superintendent Dr. Art McCoy.

 

On November 6 the board placed Dr. McCoy on paid leave. The next step in the procedure is to hold a hearing with McCoy so he can hear the reasons for his termination. The hearing will be in a closed session, unless the two sides agree to hold the meeting in open session.

 

In a statement posted to the school district's Facebook page, Board President Paul Morris says that after the hearing they will decide if McCoy's contract should be terminated with cause.

 

The school board has not released the reason they placed McCoy on leave last month.

 

The full statement is posted below:

Dear Ferguson-Florissant School District Families, Staff and Community,
 
As you know, on Nov. 6, the Ferguson-Florissant Board of Education placed Dr. Art McCoy on paid administrative leave. Since that time, the Board has looked into several areas of concern and an independent, third-party investigation has been completed.
 
As a result of conclusions reached through these investigations, the Board has voted 6-1 to issue a notice of charges to Dr. McCoy stating reasons the board is considering terminating his contract for cause. Dr. McCoy and his attorney have received the statement of charges.
 
In accordance with the superintendent’s contract with the Board of Education, Dr. McCoy will receive a full hearing of these charges. The hearing will be conducted in closed session, unless a mutual agreement is reached between the Board and Dr. McCoy to hold the meeting in open session. Only after the hearing will the Board determine whether to terminate Dr. McCoy’s contract for cause, which would relieve the District’s responsibility to pay Dr. McCoy’s salary and benefits.
 
This was a very difficult decision, but one that we believe is in the best interests of our students, parents and community. It was made after a thorough, independent investigation and much careful deliberation among all members of the Board of Education. We recognize and are grateful for Dr. McCoy’s contributions to our students since becoming superintendent. Unfortunately, we find it necessary to take this action at this time.
 
We want our students, their families and our community to know that we will continue to work tirelessly to ensure that every one of our students receives the highest-quality educational opportunities available, and that we will work closely with our District community to forge the path forward with the ultimate goal of success for all of our students.
 
Sincerely,
 
Mr. Paul T. Morris
President
Ferguson-Florissant School District Board of Education
