Last year, the school district’s superintendent was retiring and the assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction also left before the start of the new school year.
That leadership vacuum resulted in at least two annual reports not being completed and filed in a timely manner with the state Education Department.
New Superintendent Terri Bavis convinced the school board to hire retired Fairport school administrator Jerry Bucklin to do a compliance study on overdue reports.
Bucklin made his oral report to the board Monday night.
“Due to this change in leadership, critical reports were not done on time,” Bucklin said. “The dates were missed and reports were incomplete, in some cases. The district was not in compliance.”
