Taxpayers say turmoil among Yorktown school board members is hurting district

Schools will be opening in a few weeks, but the focus inside the Yorktown Central School District is not in the classroom. Two school board members suddenly quit this week stating they could no longer work with other trustees. Another school board member quit last month and some top administrators have announced they are also leaving. Former board member Patricia Harris says she and the other departing trustees feel the remaining board members are running rough shod over administrators and staff. Parents and taxpayers, however, say the infighting is hurting the district and want the board members to learn how to work together. The board is expected to appoint replacements for those who quit within the next few weeks.
