Charges Against Leyton Superintendent Dropped
May 5, 2021
Leyton School District Superintendent Chris Geary was placed on administrative leave during a special meeting held by the school board on Jan. 22.
The board held a meeting Jan.29 when it appointed Charles Bunner to serve as the interim district superintendent.
On Friday, April 30,Geary confirmed he had been contacted earlier in the week that all charges had been dismissed with “Non-Public Sanction,” which means the charges will not be on his record.
In a telephone call with Geary Friday, April 30, Geary said the next step is with the school district. In the Jan. 29, 2021 meeting of the Leyton School Board, board president Susie Ernest said “if at any time Mr. Geary is brought back, the interim superintendent contract will be null and void.”
“We are waiting for the school to act,” Geary said.
He said he is anxious to be back in the office.
“I am excited to get back to work,” he said.
