ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- Are things cooling down in the Jordan-Elbridge School District? Well, it certainly appears so. One lawsuit against the district has been withdrawn.
The lawsuit filed in October was to try to reinstate former superintendent Marilyn Dominick. In her severance agreement, the reason stated for her early departure was irreconcilable differences.
The claim filed by nine district residents stated there weren't irreconcilable differences and her severance package was an unconstitutional gift of public funds.
Dominick has said she was planning on retiring early at the end of the school year anyway. She said she's flattered by the residents' intentions, but doesn't want to return as superintendent.
