I am sick about this, I loved how he was down to earth like the rest of us and talked about things with students and staff that needed to be addressed. Not someone who keep his head up like he was better than us. He will be greatly missed. I know a lot of people did not like some of his calls but remember one thing people he had bosses too, the school board. There has been times he did go against them. Mr Emery I do hope you get well, and keep your head up you are a wonderful pereson and great friend. I will miss you deeply. Dr. Chappel will do great but what scares me is who they will replace him or her with. God bless

What a positive meeting and how lucky is this district to have Dr. Chappel at the helm. Several power point presentations covered Spirit Week, school assessment progress and an update on the renovation at the JSE. Dr. Chappel and this board have moved forward despite all the roadblocks thrown in their path....keep up the POSITIVE work.

Wow...after reading the very vanilla article and then the comments I'm thinking it sure would be nice to get the back story on all of this.

This smells of special and unethical deal - like Penn College often does. Penn College, for instance, often secretly fires people - then pays them for months as long as they sign a "non-disclosure". Then the terminated employee is given a new title (Special Consultant to such and such), a new office number (which is usually a closet somewhere on campus), and nothing more is ever said about them.

If this employee is on the up and up, why take sick leave until a specific date next year? Why not FMLA? Sad...

The man is sick. He earned sick time and vacation just like the rest of us who are employed. He is taking his sick time now because he needs it. He is resigning at the end of the school year. I don't see where this is unethical...

The administration last evening presented a spirit filled agenda which involved the integration of community groups and businesses. Forget the past few years and move this district with the Bulldog Power we once had Dr. Chappel! Thank you for having the Bulldog Channel available to the citizens who cannot get out. Yes, "we are the orange and black!"

AWndy33 and ValleyDad987 - you are both clearly incorrect. I've witnessed what I talked about with PCT and the link jjs8282 sends the message that I'm probably right about Mr. Emery. He's sick alright - with alcoholism. Thanks jjs8282 for the revealing link about Mr. Emery.

From WNEP - “He is kind of an intense person who tries to follow rules. He tries to make sure everyone does the right thing and follows the rules, so it is kind of a surprise,” said Jersey Shore senior Alyssa Fink. She added it’s up to the school board to decide whether Emery stays on with the district, but to her, if the DUI charges are true, then Emery’s character is in question. “It’s not really a good thing to be looking up to.” "Parents who spoke to Newswatch 16 wanted to point out that Emery was superintendent last year when the district wanted to prevent a group of high school seniors from walking at graduation for being at a party where alcohol was served". Sounds like a winning kind of guy...

Andy33 and ValleyDad - I appreciate your perspectives but disagree (your silly insults aside). It's not outside the realm of possibilities, as you are suggesting, that this individual continued to be a problematic employee in ways that didn't rise to garnering the attention of a media outlet (SG). That he was driving so intoxicated (.211) and demonstrated a cavalier attitude with the police does not reflect maturity and responsibility. It appears he's had multiple DUIs, etc. The evidence suggests some sort of "deal" for him to leave quietly. You're not incorrect that I myself may be incorrect. The way you're both talking, his past has no relevance in suggesting what may have happened currently.
