Court says Vallas can stay on as superintendent during appeal

July 26, 2013
He is appealing court ruling that he mjust leave his job as school superintendent in Bridgeport, Conn.

Paul Vallas will get to stay on the job this fall as superintendent of the Bridgeport (Conn.) school district while the state Supreme Court considers an appeal of a ruling that calls for his ouster. The Hartford Courant reports that the high court is likely to hear the appeal in September; rulings typically take five to eight months. Earlier this month, a lower court judge decided that Vallas should be removed immediately from his job because he does not meet the state's qualifications for a school superintendency. Vallas has had 16 years of experience leading school districts in Chicago, New Orleans and Philadelphia, but he is not certified as a superintendent in Connecticut.
