Rumors were swirling around the Emery Unified School District today as parents, citizens and even teachers tried to confirm that schools chief Debbra Lindo, has been forced out of her position as Superintendent of the Schools. The School District has not made a statement and they have refused to officially confirm or deny the rumor. However, a high level District official that wished to remain anonymous told the Tattler today that Ms Lindo is as of now "on leave" and former Emery Superintendent and State of California Department of Education Trustee John Quinn has become interim Superintendent. Ms Lindo announced months ago after a tumultuous season and a half as the chief, she would leave her position, but not until June.
Ms Lindo's early departure could spell trouble for the Center of 'Community' Life, a massive schools rebuild project that has just broken ground last week. The project Manager for that project, Roy Miller quit his position earlier in the month. The project is slated for completion in 2015.
Ms Lindo served at the pleasure of the Emery School Board and they would have been directly involved in her removal but no Board members would speak to the Tattler. The Board had only just begun a search for a replacement for Ms Lindo due to be completed in time for her previously announced June departure.
