MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - Candidate Sergio Paez will not be the next Superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools, the school board unanimously voted on Tuesday.
Allegations surfaced regarding staff at his former district abusing special education students at Holyoke Public Schools in Massachusetts.
"Obviously I'm disappointed," Paez said to reporters following the decision. "The situation is unfortunate what happened in Holyoke. I produced all the information, but as any superintendent we respect the decision they made. And I'm wishing the best to the city of Minneapolis and they find the right candidate."
Board member Inz said he wasn't comfortable moving forward with contract negotiations with Paez, and made a motion to cancel any further plans with him.
