Ric Perry

Perry's resignation was accepted by the Portage School Board last week. An arbitration hearing will decide if Perry gets any severance from the district.

The Portage School Board has accepted the resignation of Superintendent Ric Perry a month after he was suspended for an “inappropriate relationship” with a district employee and ten days before a due process hearing had been scheduled over possibly terminating Perry’s contract. MLive/Kalamazoo Gazette reporter Julie Mack says the two sides will now move to arbitration.

Perry has been suspended since mid-December because of an "inappropriate relationship" with a district employee.
