Important Message for the MCSD Board of Education

From the board of education:

This is a follow-up communication regarding the news shared with the district about an allegation made by a family in the Andes Central School district against Dr. Robert Chakar, our shared superintendent.

Effective immediately, the Margaretville Central School Board of Education has placed Dr. Chakar on administrative leave from his duties as superintendent. This decision was made in the best interest of all parties involved, and will remain in effect pending the conclusion of the independent investigation into the allegation.

As stated previously, there has never been a claim made by any student, staff member, or family in the Margaretville Central School District about Dr. Chakar in the entirety of his tenure at Margaretville.

Principal Laura Norris will serve as the acting superintendent until such time as the investigation is complete.

Given the ongoing investigation, Margaretville Central School District will not be making any further statements about this matter, as we await those findings.

As always, it remains our priority to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our students and staff.
