When he was hired, many pointed out that Calinger's history was to hang around for 2-3 years then move on to another district (distorting his accomplishments along the way). Looks like he won't disappoint.

Happy to see him go. Hasn't done anything for months anyway. Only sorry we have to keep in on the payroll.

What a great country - go on leave - get full salary for doing nothing - apply for another job - how do some of these people look in the mirror and like what they see - what a stupid school district

What was the board thinking ewhen the hired him. From whi I heard he came with a lot of baggage. Now he's [acking those bagsd wioth district money and heading for another district. I only hope Steel Valley has more sense!

Talk about giving the keys to the hen house to the fox! Putting Alan Johnson in place as interim superintendent?? He'll be doing A LOT of shady business behind the scenes just like he did in his other jobs before coming here!
