According to the Fall River Herald News, former Charlottesville superintendent Scottie Griffin has been named as a finalist for the superintendent of the Fall River school system. There were 21 applications for the position — 12 were interviewed, and 5 remain in the running. Assuming that the Fall River school board and the Herald News are capable of using Google, apparently Griffin’s record doesn’t present a significant obstacle to hiring her.
Fall River has a population of 92,000, and is located along the Massachusetts/Rhode Island border, 50 miles south of Boston. It has two high schools, four middle schools, and 28 elementary schools.
Charlottesville just wrapped up an 11-month-long Scottie Griffin saga, ending by paying her $291,000 to please just go away. Griffin previously applied for a similar position in Arkansas, but the local paper got wise to her, and she was denied the position.
