Parents Pass Petition Calling For Removal Of Phelps Superintendent

Three parents of students in the Phelps School District are circulating petitions calling for the removal of the superintendent.  They are challenging Doctor Delnice Hill's leadership. 

The trouble started last summer when Hill's son, Kevin Hill, pawned two laptops belonging to the district for 450 dollars.  He was director of technology for the system at the time.  The parents say that money was turned over to the school only after Hill was confronted and his mother told police the district didn't want to pursue charges. 

Kevin Hill has resigned.  The petition being passed calls for the Phelps School Board to request Doctor Hill's resignation.  Four closed sessions have already been held to discuss the situation.
