Here is your chance to meet and question the candidates for the Grove City school board. There will be a candidate's forum at the Grove City high school LGI room on May 10, from 7:00-9:00pm. This date is significant because May 9 will be Dr. Mextorf's DUI hearing, followed that evening by the regular school board meeting.
All nine of the current school board members currently defend the decision to hire Mextorf, while fully knowing he had a pending DUI case. Mextorf was cited top-tier charge with a blood-alcohol content of 0.316, which is nearly four times the legal limit. Mextorf's DUI occurred while driving to school, during which time he nearly hit multiple vehicles, including a school bus.
Mextorf, through his lawyer, are seemingly not disputing the charge, as they are seeking a plea deal.
Mextorf, as GCASD superintendent, will be responsible for the guidance and direction of several hundred students and the $30+ million budget of the district.
