Ridgewood Teacher Settles Tenure Charges
 

Issue Detail:

 
As reported in the Ridgewood News on February 8, 2010 ("Ridgewood teacher could lose tenure" by Delores Alfieri), tenure charges were filed by the Ridgewood Board of Education against Wende L. Greenberg, an English teacher who has taught at the Village's high school since 1989. The hearing on the tenure charges was scheduled on begin on March 22, 2010 before Administrative Law Judge Daniel McKeown. But, the Board and Dr. Greenberg agreed, prior to the hearing, to settle the case. I have placed the Settlement Agreement between the Board and Dr. Greenberg on-line here. None of the records that I have on file give any detail as to the conduct from which the charges against Dr. Greenberg arose. However, the "Appendix of Exhibits" attached to the "Statement of Charges" identifies exhibits such as "12/11/2008 - Typed notes from Matt Cheplic to Jane Blakely, regarding harassment incident of December 10, 2008." Assuming that these records are available under the Open Public Records Act or the common law right of access, citizens who are interested in learning the nature of Dr. Greenberg's alleged conduct may submit a written request for one or more exhibits to the Board of Education.
