Mark Lipton, the Katonah-Lewisboro school board president, released a statement regarding Thursday night's school board meeting where members of the Katonah Lewisboro District Teacher's Association voiced their displeasure over the leadership of Paul Kreutzer, superintendent of schools.
On Thursday evening, the Board of Education was unexpectedly presented with a set of concerns by the Katonah-Lewisboro District Teachers Association (KLDTA) regarding the leadership of our Superintendent of Schools. Oddly, many of these concerns date to Dr. Kreutzer's previous employment in Wisconsin, while others refer to his time in Katonah-Lewisboro.
None of the information made known to the public was unknown to the Board, and we find it unfortunate that the KLDTA chose to share its concerns in a confrontational public manner, rather than utilizing appropriate and respectful channels of communication.
It is the Board of Education that is responsible for ensuring that the Superintendent discharges his duties effectively. As mandated by contract, the Board will continue to exercise its performance evaluations of the Superintendent using our established protocols.
