Judge Denies Monroe Schools Superintendent Harris’ Request To Return To Work
MONROE, La. (AP) — The Monroe City School Board's hearing for Superintendent Kathleen Harris will likely continue as scheduled later this week after a judge denied Harris' petition to stop it and to let her return to work.
State District Judge Benjamin Jones denied Harris' petition Monday for a temporary restraining order against the Monroe City School Board.
The News-Star reports Harris filed a request last week to prevent the board from conducting a hearing on nine charges compiled in relation to her supervision of the school district.
Jones also denied Harris' request for immediate reinstatement and her request for a hearing on her petitions.
Board president Verbon Muhammad has said he hopes to reach a resolution with Harris before the 1 p.m. hearing on Thursday.
