Union: No confidence in superintendent
July 25, 2014 09:38 pm

The Brookings-Harbor School District union is demanding the school board immediately place Superintendent Brian Hodge on administrative leave, saying teachers and staff “overwhelmingly supported” a vote of no confidence in his ability to lead the district.

“We can’t go through what we did last year,” said Terri Poponi, president of the Brookings-Harbor Education Association (BHEA).

On Friday, school board chair Katherine Johnson said the board cannot place Hodge on administrative leave until an ongoing investigation into the complaints is concluded.

The theme around town seems to be the old Boy Scout motto: Be prepared.

“The last six months we’ve been trying to prepare for this event,” said Jed Davis, supervisor of the Ray’s Food Place in Port Orford. “We’re just making sure everything falls into place at the right time. You can’t get everything done in one day and you can’t expect everything to show up in a day. So we are just making sure we are ready.”
