Board upholds firing of superintendent

The Alexandria School Board voted yesterday to affirm their decision to not renew the contract of school Superintendent Rebecca L. Perry.

The panel voted 5-4 against reversing its decision made last month.

Mrs. Perry’s supporters said that she has improved test scores among the 10,000 students enrolled in the system. She has held the job for seven years. Her contract expires next June.

Some board members called for her to be fired after she was arrested in 2004 for driving under the influence.

Some parents said the school board failed to give Mrs. Perry a fair assessment.
