...the OP did say that in very recent history that the superintendent had gotten the district sued four times...and lost all four times.
I'd like to know how, after a lawsuit record of 0-4...soon to be 0-5, the superintendent STILL has a job. The only two ways I can come up with is:
1. there is one school board member who is a bully, has de facto control of the board because they are a bully, and they and the super. are best buddies.
2. the superintendent knows where bodies are buried.
