Richmond Hts school board starts new year; superintendent remains in limbo
A new era should be ushered in this evening when the Richmond Heights Board of Education holds its organizational meeting at 7PM.
Longtime school board member Linda Pliodzinskas is expected to become the new board president, succeeding Josh Kaye, whose presidency was marked by numerous controversies, unusual board turnover, and general tumult. Kaye remains a member of the board as his term has two years remaining.
It is not known when or how the new Board will address the ongoing suspension of Superintendent Linda T. Hardwick, whose contract runs through June 30.
Tonight’s organizational meeting will be followed by a 2013 Tax Budget hearing, expected to begin about 8PM.
