This seems like a very simple decision. The Teachers don't support the Superintendent, the administrators and principals don't support the superintendent so where is there any issue. End the contract without a golden parachute or any extra benefits. It is not like the board is terminating her contract early, just don't renew it. If they can't do that maybe it is time to recall and replace the current board?

Coming from someone whom is aware of the inner workings at the district office, the call for Mary’s resignation is not solely tied to the disastrous reopening of the school year. Mary’s nonsensical ramblings, inability to make decisions, and off the wall ideas leave most of her staff extremely confused and frustrated. That coupled with the catastrophic opening of TIDE and her disparate treatment of employees whom are not “Team Mary” are some of the primary reasons she should be terminated. If any good came out of this horrible pandemic is that it exposed Mary for the horrendously weak superintendent she is.
