Second, the findings noted Superintendent McGrath’s “lack of involvement in or knowledge of the NEASC (the accreditation group) voting process that was put in place at AHS” (page 48). More plainly put, McGrath didn’t really know how the process worked. Worse, she manipulated the timing of releasing her decision to fire Ms. Meagher to suit her own purposes. She received a copy of Jen’s email on June 10, but she took no action until after the vote on accreditation on June 21 (page 49).
The students of Andover High and the taxpaying citizens of Andover have been poorly served by this sordid mess. An appeal would be a further waste of Andover taxpayer dollars.
