School trustees in Caldwell are remaining mum on details about the recent removal of their superintendent and his assistant, despite criticism from residents. The Idaho Press-Tribune reports that Caldwell school trustees refused to answer questions from the public regarding former Superintendent Tim Rosandick and Assistant Superintendent Luci Asumendi during a meeting Monday evening; the two have been removed from their positions, but are remaining employed as consultants until their contracts end a year from now, in June of 2016.
Rosandick has been Caldwell's superintendent since 2012; Asumendi was brought on a year later as an assistant and director of elementary and secondary services. You can read a full report here from the AP and the Press-Tribune.
Bizarrely, both Rosandick and Asumendi are due to receive raises for the coming year, due to existing contract clauses, even as the board removes them from their regular duties. The Press-Tribune's full report is online here.
