The Barrington School District Board of Education today released the agenda for Wednesday’s Special Action Meeting, and it consists of one item for action: “Accept the resignation of Mr. Mort Argoe, Principal, Woodland School, effective June 30, 2012.”
The meeting, set for 7:30 p.m., also will include a period for public comment.
Principal Argoe submitted his resignation last week after the board’s regularly scheduled meeting (“Principal Argoe resigns from Barrington School District, former mayor says“).
The resignation comes in the wake of an apparent bullying incident at Woodland School that some say was improperly handled by Argoe. At the May 14 school board meeting, dozens of people showed up to support Argoe. Many questioned whether the district’s investigation of the incident was thorough enough.
