JCPS and fired Norton Elementary principal Ken Stites settle termination case
A settlement has been reached in the termination case between Jefferson County Public Schools and former Norton Elementary principal Ken Stites.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A settlement has been reached in the termination case between Jefferson County Public Schools and former Norton Elementary principal Ken Stites.
An appeal hearing was scheduled to be held Monday in Louisville, but since the two sides have reached an agreement, it will no longer be needed.
Attorneys for both Stites and the district confirmed with WDRB News on Wednesday that the two sides reached an agreement, but the details were not immediately available.
According to his termination letter, Stites was fired after the district questioned where Stites’ children were living because he owns a home in Indiana. In addition to the residency issue, the district also states in its termination letter that allegations were made that he had "improperly overstaffed a position at (the) school and had inappropriately influenced (the) SBDM council to defund and remove the position from (the) school completely."
It's not known if Stites will get a job back with JCPS and, if so, in what capacity he will be allowed to return.
This story will be updated as soon as we get more information.
