GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Dr. Ronald Ross has been reassigned from his position at Greenburgh Schools superintendent, effectively immediately, following a vote by the district's Board of Education at a special meeting on Monday night.
The move comes after several faculty and staff members, including a principal and the human resources director, filed a lawsuit charging racial, religious and sexual harassment by Ross.
"This situation has greatly affected the district, our community, but most importantly our children," Board President Lloyd Newland said in a statement. "It has eclipsed what really matters to us -- the success and academic achievement of our students.
"The Board has voted to place Mr. Ross on administrative reassignment and will await the outcome of the hearing of the charges filed against him. We can now turn our focus to our children and this school district."
Ross had served as principal at Woodlands High School before becoming superintendent in 2012.
