Why is anyone surprised? These people have a culture of acting like Gods. They are incredibly arrogant and have little respect for anyone. It is only because they have been allowed to get away with this crap for so very long. It's about time they got called on it.

“The Professional Code of Conduct of the State of Connecticut For School Administrators has been breached,” the new school superintendent, Alan Beitman, wrote in a letter dated June 9 to Niehoff. “I will be scheduling you to attend Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA) workshops or other appropriate training sessions … I will ask you, when we meet in July to set goals for 2008-09, to develop at least one goal that will show your understanding of the seriousness of this matter and how this will be addressed in your evaluation portfolio.”
In addition, Beitman told Niehoff: “I would urge you to write a formal letter of apology to the student referenced in the email and to the student’s family.”
Meanwhile, Beitman and several teams of lawyers are reviewing about 500 of Niehoff’s emails.
Not one of Niehoff’s emails was produced following Freedom of Information Act requests beginning last August. Attorney Christine Chinni, counsel for the former superintendent, refused to tell the FOI Commission Wednesday whether any of those emails were responsive to the prior requests.

Can you get the Courant to report on this?
It seems that Niehoff was suspended for 2 days for one email now that there may be others will there be any other disciplinary action?
