Long-Term Sub Not Returning To High School Position
Students will complete review and final exam under another teacher.
Bryant Annett, a long-term substitute math teacher at Jefferson Township High School, will not be returning to his position for the final days of school, according to a Honeywell instant alert message sent by the school’s principal, Karl Mundi on Tuesday.
Annett began substituting at the beginning of January as a maternity leave replacement for Chelsea Holland.
Board of Education President Ron Smith said the principal and superintendent have the authority to make personnel decisions in emergent circumstances.
"The board doesn't get involved in making those personnel decisions," Smith said. "We will approve the action that took place at a future meeting."
The board's next meeting is June 18.
No reason was given for Annett's departure. "I cannot discuss any personnel decisions," Mundi said.
His letter to the parents read as follows:
I am writing to inform you that your child’s mathematics teacher, Mr. Annett, will not be returning for the remaining days of the school year. It is my understanding that all assignments for the fourth marking period have been completed and graded by Mr. Annett.
Your child will complete the final exam review and will take their final exam under the supervision of Mrs. Gross.
Dr. Petric, the district Mathematics Supervisor, will oversee the transition and will be available to answer any questions you might have. Dr. Petric can be reached at 973-697-3535 ext. 5879 or via email at email@example.com.
Sincerely, Karl A. Mundi Principal
Editor's note: An earlier version of this story and headline indicated Annett was removed from his position. However, the district only said he was not returning.
