WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut school superintendent is losing his $150,000-a-year job because of comments he posted on Facebook.
The Windsor Locks Board of Education Wednesday voted 4-1 Wednesday night to approve a settlement calling for Superintendent David Telesca to resign and continue receiving his salary for six months or until he finds a new job, whichever is sooner.
The Hartford Courant reports Telesca wrote on Facebook that his first day on the job involved “counseling an administrator to retire or face termination,” and ended the comment with a smiley face.
He also wrote that he slept until 10 a.m. on his first day, and it would be “the best job ever” if that happened every day.
His attorney says Telesca doesn’t want the incident to be the defining moment in his career as an educator.
