Supreme Court Says Manila Can Hire New Superintendent

February 19, 2004 - Posted at 4:16 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The Arkansas Supreme Court says the Manila School District can hire a new school supintendent despite a pending wrongful termination lawsuit filed by the old superintendent.

Former superintendent Charolette Wagner also had asked for an injunction on filling the position.

The district voted not to extend a third one-year contract to Wagner in January 2003 after she did not obtain certification from the Arkansas Department of Education to be a superintendent.  The court says she was hired with the understanding that she would.

Wagner filed suit, claiming she relied on oral promises from board members that she could continue with increased salary and benefits.  She also claimed gender discrimination and asked for an injunction to keep the district from hiring a replacement.  The Mississippi County Circuit Court granted the injunction.

The Supreme Court disagreed, saying no injunction should be granted.
