Faculty present no-confidence vote over Randolph Academy superintendent

RANDOLPH – Results of an overwhelming vote of no confidence in Superintendent Lori DiCarlo by the faculty will be presented to the Randolph Academy Union Free School District Board of Education at its meeting at 4 p.m. Tuesday on the Academy campus, 336 Main St.

President Jennifer Fuhrman of the Randolph Academy Professional Association said several issues prompted the vote last week, which was endorsed by 88 percent of the faculty.

Along with the balloting, the faculty gathered comments regarding DeCarlo's performance, Fuhrman added. She cited “disrespect, dishonesty, intimidation, poor decision-making and a lack of collaboration” by the superintendent, who has held the post since 2006.

The Randolph Academy, with campuses in Randolph and Hamburg, is a “special act school,” offering therapy, counseling and behavior management along with year-round classes for students from schools throughout Western New York.
