South Orange Middle School teacher learned that he will not return to the district in September. He was notified on Saturday that the Board of Education chose to uphold the that was made in May by Principal Joseph Uglialoro.
Kathleen McCort, who also taught eighth grade Social Studies at SOMS, was similarly notified that she wouldn't be rehired. Her Donaldson hearing, held in June, saw the same result.
Neither teacher was retained by the district. A replacement for Cohen was approved by vote at the Monday Board of Education meeting. McCort's replacement comes from within the school, but from another discipline. That announcement was made in June.
