Monday night massacre

Rumors immediately flew around the district about the “Monday night massacre” at the school board meeting. Letters drafted by the school attorney to Superintendent Galvin and Principal Fortunato were hand delivered to both administrators later that day.

The letters requested letters of resignation by both administrators prior to a special meeting of the school board set for the following Monday. The letters made it clear if the school board did not have a letter of resignation to act on they would act to end Superintendent Galvin’s contract and deny Principal Fortunato tenure with required public votes at the special meeting.

Facing the negative consequences of such a public decision by the school board, Debbie Fortunato and Tom Galvin both resigned. Tom took a much lower paying job with the state football committee until he reached minimum retirement age and Debbie enrolled in the University at Albany, SUNY doctoral education program.
