Re: Ferg-‐Flor Supt. Placed on Administrative Leave
Date: Friday November 8, 2013
In the last 24 hours the St. Louis County Branch of the NAACP has been inundated with calls in reference to the suspension of Ferguson Florissant School District Dr. Art. McCoy. Currently the Branch is seeking to set up a meeting with the School Board leadership to get an understanding on what the “differences in philosophy” are.
Statement from St. Louis County NAACP President Esther J. Haywood:
“As a former school board member for nearly 20 years I understand that Board leaders and the superintendent may run into disagreements from time to time. What is not okay is the fact the board has not shared with its stakeholders the reasons for placing Dr. McCoy on administrative leave. If it is truly a difference in philosophies and not a personnel issue, the matter should be shared with the public immediately in a public forum.”
