Here is a little tidbit, which should be taken with a grain of salt. It was passed on to me today and I believe it bares passing on to you. I've heard from two different individuals, both reliable and who wish to remain nameless, that Middletown School Superintendent, Dr. William George will be leaving the school system in the near future.
One individual told me that Dr. George handed in his resignation and is interviewing for Keansburg's superintendent's position, while the other person mentioned that he was leaving to take the position of School Superintendent for Monmouth County.
According to the person who heard Dr. George may be heading off towards Keansburg, they stated that George has denied this and said any rumors circulating that insinuates he is leaving Middletown for greener pastures are not true. He plans on staying put and is trying to put an end to the rumors. However, many other reliable sources have said that the rumors are true according to my source.
As I stated above, this information should be taken with a grain of salt at the moment. Dr. George's job status and/or alleged resignation, until confirmed by him or announced at a Board of Education(BOE) meeting, is a private personnel issue and wouldn't be discussed, on the record at least, by any member of the Board of Education, so asking for a comment from the BOE would be pointless at this time. And since Dr. George seems to be denying the rumor himself, I wouldn't expect to hear differently if I called his office, so we'll have to wait and see.
But as they say, where's there's smoke, there's usually fire.
