BREAKING: Hernando School Superintendent Terminated, Shocking Revelations Revealed
BROOKSVILLE – After years of disharmony between Parents, Teachers and the Hernando County School District, Members of the School Board voted to oust Superintendent Dr. Lori Romano in a 3-2 vote of No Confidence, during a school board meeting this evening.
The decision came during a workshop this afternoon and ratified in the regular meeting, just after 7:00 p.m.
Current Board Member and Hernando Board of County Commissioner Candidate, Beth Narverud led the charge, by making the motion to remove Dr. Romano immediately. Narverud has been a long-time critic of Romano’s lack of leadership. Board Member Susan Duval and Linda Prescott backed Narverud’s motion.
Board Members Gus Guadagnino and Chairman Mark Johnson voiced concerns over the decision and said it was a “big mistake.”
Prior to tonight’s meeting, members of the media, including RNRF, received an anonymous email that provide evidence of misconduct on the part of both Narverud and Duval, presumably, as a preemptive attack for deciding to terminate Romano.
The attached document claims Narverud wrote herself a $10,000 bonus check and reads in part, while serving as the Executive Director for the Hernando County Education Foundation, diverting much needed money away from teachers, classrooms and children.
An audit report was attached that allegedly confirms those allegations.
The author also claims Narverud was routinely late to board meetings, falls asleep, and violates Sunshine Laws.
The anonymous author goes on to attack Susan Duval, stating that she was disciplined by the Department of Education over 10-years ago, on several Statute and Rule violations.
Several citizens took to the podium in defense of Dr. Romano but there were an equal number who cheered the decision and fighting for years to have her removed.
After the decision to terminate Dr. Romano, Beth Narverud motioned to have her removed immediately, however, that measure did not pass and it was later decided Romano’s termination would be effective June 30th.
A discussion on who will replace Romano will begin later this month but Romano does have options of due-process, which includes her right to appeal the decision.
