Mysterious removal of two principals from Nashua school raises questions
NASHUA — Ledge Street Elementary School students and parents remain confused after the mysterious removal of their two principals late last week.
Nashua School district officials removed Principal Janet Valeri and Assistant Principal Tiffany Hyatt from their positions last week, according to The Telegraph.
Officials did not originally provide any information about the matter for parents when this took place last week. However, Superintendent Connie Brown revealed the two administrators are subjects to an investigation into personal issues Monday, but declined to comment on the details of the investigation.
Brown sent a letter to faculty and families Monday afternoon to explain the situation, mentioning that Valeri had retired and Hyatt had moved on for other jobs. According to The Telegraph, the letter provided information contradicting reports that Valeri and Hyatt are still employed by Nashua School district.
Brown had met with Valeri and Hyatt last week with other district officials, and they remained in the meeting until school finished. Brown did not reveal what happened at the meeting to the media and continued to state the matter was personal.
Members of the Ledge Street School and Nashua Teachers' Union met last month with district officials to deliver complaints about the administrators, including a vote of no confidence for the former principals. However, Brown did not provide any information about this matter or any new updates on the situation at a special Monday meeting of the School Board.
For now, Assistant Superintendents Roland Bouchard and Mike Frederickson will take over as interim principals at Ledge Street elementary for the rest of the school year.
