'Conduct' Concerns Lead To Webutuck Principal Switching Positions

AMENIA, N.Y. – The Webutuck school district had considered disciplining a local elementary school principal for his conduct and questionable interactions with student and staff, but will instead be moving him to the high school, according to the Poughkeepsie Journal.

Kenneth Sauer, who was principal of Webutuck Elementary School until he was placed on administrative leave in December, is set to take over as principal of the school district’s high school in July, according to the Journal.

Ray Castellani, superintendent of schools, said only that an investigation into Sauer’s behavior yielded concerns about his “professional interactions,” according to the Journal, which reported that the district considered terminating the administrator before opting to resolve the matter “without the need for further litigation.”

Sauer, who resigned as principal of the elementary school on Jan. 31, will work in an administrative role until he takes over at the high school in the summer, according to the Journal, which reported that he will retain his position as the district director of athletics.
