Board Member Continues Fight for Dr. Vargo


After several weeks people are still fighting for Dr. Diana Vargo after her contract was not renewed by the Ohio County Board of Education.

Board Member Chris Carder says she plans to ask the board on Monday for a reconsideration of the vote.

The community has been far from silent since the controversial 3-2 vote by the Ohio County Board of Education. Board meetings have been packed with supporters of Dr. Vargo.

Carder said board members still don’t know the reason why three members voted not to renew her contract, but some think it has something to do with students test scores.

“Dr. Vargo explained the plan for improving our test scores that was being done in all the schools. We have to let that plan work so give her a year. If next fall our test scores haven’t improved then by all means we need to look at the Superintendents leadership,” said Carder.
