Springfield school district withdraws Carlock offer

The Springfield School Board has begun a new search for an assistant principal again after the offer to Madeline Carlock was withdrawn this week after the board learned she had been arrested last October.


  1. "The assistant principal position, for which Carlock was offered a $75,000 salary, was created earlier this year at the request of Springfield teachers and principals, who said they needed more support to help them improve the struggling school system."


    1. Someone create a 75k job for me, will ya? I never slashed my mom's tires or kicked a cop!

  2. I suggest that people read the school board minutes from May 21. I find it funny that some of the members do not want to wait until the background checks come back before they hire and the superintendent also mentioned that there wasn’t many applicants. This is complete BS. I worked for a corporation and background checks come back in a few days. Any person applying in a school district knows that this is protocol. Whether the person is an hourly non-contracted employee who works part time, to a salaried management position. The next time any of these school board members come up for re-election, I sincerely hope that someone challenges them. If a person is subjected to a background check and a drug test at a job that pays minimum wage, but our school system, our school board and superintendent overlook or better yet just brush it under the rug thinking no one will find out, they are digging themselves into a big pit. If people in Springfield wonder why we don’t get the best candidates, this is why. Three articles in the Eagle Times, all of which have shown the unprofessional leadership, we as a community have accepted. Any teacher that has proven to be a great teacher, will go elsewhere.
