Boulder Valley school board fires superintendent over unspecified complaint

Daily Camera (Boulder): The Boulder Valley school board unanimously voted Tuesday to fire Superintendent Bruce Messinger, who’s been on paid leave for more than a month while an unspecified personnel issue was investigated.

The board didn’t address the reason for his termination on Tuesday.

Instead, school board President Sam Fuqua thanked people for their patience and said the board proceeded in a “deliberative and cautious manner” with the investigation, adding that the nature of the complaint can’t be discussed.

“While we cannot share the results of this investigation and acknowledge that this may be frustrating to some of you, we ask that you respect the confidential nature of process,” he said.

An emotional Messinger, who didn’t attend the board meeting, said Tuesday that he was “incredibly disappointed” in both the decision and the process.

He said he requested and was denied the opportunity to meet with the board to address misinterpretations and inaccuracies in the report produced by an independent investigator.
