Pa. official: Resignation prevented legal fight
The Associated Press
Coatesville Area School District President Neil Campbell says the board agreed to allow Richard Como to resign as superintendent to avoid a long legal battle. Some parents wanted him fired.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (bit.ly/15rBkWS) that at a meeting Tuesday night Campbell gave residents a detailed timeline of events leading to the departures of Como and former athletic director James Donato.
The two submitted their resignations Aug. 29 following allegations they'd exchanged racially and sexually offensive texts with one another.
Campbell says Como's resignation will "get (him) away" from the district's children as quickly as possible.
