Stow-Munroe Falls High School Principal Sue Schur retired, pretty unexpectedly to many, in June after 27 years in education — 21 with the Stow-Munroe Falls district.
Recently, a lawsuit filed by Stow-Munroe Falls Board of Education Member Rod Armstrong, brought light to an issue that claims during an executive session, the superintendent confirmed that Schur changed the final grades of some students, including one who is related to her.
Superintendent Russ Jones issued the following statement Monday (Sept. 17) morning about Schur:
I sincerely appreciate the many years of service that Sue Schur gave to the children of our school district.
She was a long-time educator who touched the lives of children in many positive ways. Her dedication to our school district will always be very much appreciated.
In early June I was given information pertaining to Ms. Schur regarding her duties and responsibilities as high school principal. I immediately investigated that information and provided the Board of Education with the details of my findings.
I met with Ms. Schur to discuss the matter with our treasurer, Cathy Bulgrin.
The next day Ms. Schur submitted her resignation as high school principal. I immediately reported my findings to the Ohio Department of Education Office of Professional Conduct, which I am mandated to do by law.
Their investigation of the matter is ongoing which prohibits me from commenting on the matter in further detail.
