This evening, the Tuxedo Union Free School District Board of Education finalized a separation agreement with, and accepted the resignation of, Timothy Bohlke. This resignation is effective immediately and Nicole Scariano has been named Interim-Superintendent of Schools and High School Principal. The Board will shortly be launching a search for a new Superintendent of Schools. While this search is being conducted, Ms. Scariano will be assisted by a human resources consultant, Dr. Ronald Valenti. Nicole Clark has also been appointed to help fulfill Ms. Scariano’s duties as CSE/CPSE Chairperson and Section 504 coordinator.
The Tuxedo Union Free School District Board is aware of allegations that an inappropriate post was made on one of the district's social media accounts. The Superintendent of Schools forcefully denies making this inappropriate post. We are taking the incident very seriously. This evening the Board voted to direct the district's attorney and Human Resources consultant to work with an independent IT firm to fully investigate the matter. This investigation is expected to take at least several days. Out of respect for this investigation, we will refrain from commenting further at this time. However, we have been preliminarily advised by our IT firm that visiting this website/viewing the content of the post may present internet security issues for those who accessed it. Consideration should be given by those who accessed the post to take appropriate internet security precautions including changing passwords and usernames and utilizing internet security software programs.
