DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) – The State Board of Education voted on Friday that Superintendent Dr. Robert Kabylski and the Chief Financial Officer be temporarily replaced. The Iowa Department of Education said in a press release they had “made every effort over the past three years” to work with the school district to address several issues including disciplinary actions against minority students, special education services, and “serious school safety concerns.” They go on to say since the district had “consistently failed” to improve those issues, and the Department of Education recommends the move.
The Department of Education says the Department and the Board have worked continuously and explicitly with Davenport officials regarding how to make corrective actions, including conditional accreditation.
There was also reportedly insufficient progress on the financial stability within the district, according to the Department of Education.
