How to Handle Tom Gavin
Nathan Mayberg reports this morning in the Register-Star that after a three-hour executive session, the Hudson City School District Board of Education voted to give Thomas Gavin, the principal of Hudson High School who has been suspended since October 2012 because of allegations of sexual harassment and other misconduct, a temporary reassignment: "BOE reassigns Gavin to Questar III BOCES." Yesterday, Lynn Sloneker reported on her blog, Unmuffled, that HCSD has until today, January 3, to respond to Gavin's allegations that, among other things, his suspension was "arbitrary, capricious, irrational and contrary to education law." The parties have been ordered to appear in court on Tuesday, January 8.
