Ferguson-Florissant board president informs Art McCoy of reasons to consider his termination as superintendent

Ferguson-Florissant Board President has issued a statement today on a notice of charges of reasons for considering termination of  Art McCloy’s contract as superintendent. The following is the letter from board president Paul Morris.


December 19, 2013


Dear Ferguson-Florissant School District Families, Staff and Community,


As you know, on Nov. 6, the Ferguson-Florissant Board of Education placed Dr. Art McCoy

on paid administrative leave. Since that time, the Board has looked into several areas of

concern and an independent, third-party investigation has been completed.


As a result of conclusions reached through these investigations, the Board has voted 6-1 to

issue a notice of charges to Dr. McCoy stating reasons the board is considering terminating

his contract for cause. Dr. McCoy and his attorney have received the statement of charges.


In accordance with the superintendent’s contract with the Board of Education, Dr. McCoy

will receive a full hearing of these charges. The hearing will be conducted in closed session,

unless a mutual agreement is reached between the Board and Dr. McCoy to hold the

meeting in open session. Only after the hearing will the Board determine whether to

terminate Dr. McCoy’s contract for cause, which would relieve the District’s responsibility to

pay Dr. McCoy’s salary and benefits.


This was a very difficult decision, but one that we believe is in the best interests of our

students, parents and community. It was made after a thorough, independent investigation

and much careful deliberation among all members of the Board of Education. We recognize

and are grateful for Dr. McCoy’s contributions to our students since becoming

superintendent. Unfortunately, we find it necessary to take this action at this time.


We want our students, their families and our community to know that we will continue to

work tirelessly to ensure that every one of our students receives the highest-quality

educational opportunities available, and that we will work closely with our District community

to forge the path forward with the ultimate goal of success for all of our students.



Mr. Paul T. Morris


Ferguson-Florissant School District Board of Education
