Warsaw parents have been contacting News 4 about rumors of a big shake up in the local school district.
Right now, Superintendent Valerie Burke still has a job in the Warsaw Central School District, despite rumors to the contrary. But State Police tell News 4 that Burke was arrested for DWI in May of 2011, blowing a .15 percent BAC. Burke was pulled over on the 490 in the City of Rochester when police say she was swerving in and out of lanes.
Donna Veihdeffer said, “I’m not happy. This lady is supposed to be representing the children and the school and that doesn’t seem like she’s representing very good.”
Many parents are outraged that this has been kept hidden for some time. And though rumors said Burke was dismissed, the school board president tells News 4 the superintendent is merely taking some planned time off. However, it was unclear when Burke would be returning to school.
