PORTAGE (WKZO) -- A shocker in Portage Schools. They have suspended Supt. Ric Perry after negotiations to reach a separation agreement failed, because Dr. Perry had what they are calling an Inappropriate personal relationship with a district employee and was in material breach of his contract. An investigation is underway, charges will be drawn up and Dr. Perry will get a hearing before the Board of Education.In the meantime they have appointed Asst. Supt. Rob Olson, who was until recently, Supt. Of Sturgis Schools to serve as interim CEO until such time as they can conduct a national search to find a permanent replacement.Perry had been chosen to replace Dr. Marsha Wells who had to be bought out of her contract after disagreements with board members over communications and practices just two years ago. They had been happy with his job performance it was the alleged extracurricular activities that brought him down.
