Ex-Principal Requests Leave of Absence
Former Charter Oak Primary School principal John Wetterauer is asking for a leave of absence through the remainder of the school year.
Wetterauer was reassigned to a "Principal on Special Assignment" after a district report cited ISAT testing irregularities for Special Ed students at his school.
Wetterauer was to report Monday to the Woodruff Career and Technical Center.
Wetterauer's request will be considered by the District 150 school board during a future meeting.
The board, in addition to the action against Wetterauer, issued written warning to Charter Oak teachers Deborah Lowe and Joan Schifeling and directed the administration to assign them to different schools by Feb. 4.
Lowe has been tranferred to Franklin Primary School, while Schifeling has been transferred to Hines Primary School.
