Mt. Vernon Schools Super Reportedly Fired for Improprieties


Graham School, Mount Vernon

The former Mount Vernon Schools Superintendent, who was suspended back in November, has been fired.

Talk of the Sound reports Welton Sawyer promoted a teacher, with whom he was involved in a sexual relationship, to a six figure post. And he didn’t tell the School Board.

In the wee hours of Thursday morning, the Mount Vernon Board of Education reached a settlement agreement with Sawyer which the district refused to make public. The Journal News reports that it has filed a Freedom of Information Law request seeking to obtain the document describing the settlement agreement.
