Utica Schools Acting Superintendent Brian Nolan confirmed several allegations made in the investigator's report into Superintendent Bruce Karam on Monday, one day before the report is officially presented to the Board of Education. Karam has been on administrative leave with pay since October of last year.
The Utica School Board has placed an employee on administrative leave and named an acting School Superintendent pending an investigation, according to a livestream of a special board meeting Tuesday night.
During a Utica School Board meeting late last year, board leadership admitted that a local businessman was aggravating the district with his consistent emails and Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) requests. Now, the businessman, Howard Potter, is asking why it took so long for the district to respond to him, and why he was overcharged for the documents he requested.
