STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - The two Republicans on the Stamford Board of Finance say the schools superintendent should step down following the arrest and probation of two Stamford High School administrators who failed to report a sexual relationship between a teacher and a student.

The Stamford Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1vihqsc ) that Gerry Bosak and Sal Gabriele said the departure of Winifred Hamilton is the only way to make it clear the school system will not tolerate behavior that may harm students.

Two other finance board members, Democrats Dudley Williams and Richard Freedman disagreed.

Officials say Hamilton has said she will conduct an internal or independent investigation and should be allowed to do that.

Principal Donna Valentine and assistant principal Roth Nordin have said they should have called the state Department of Children and Families and apologized for failing to do so.
