MEDINA -- The Medina School board voted to rescind Superintendent Randy Stepp's contract Tuesday night.

School Board President Karla Robinson says the board failed to properly publicize the contract on the meeting agenda before voting on it Jan. 7, a violation of Ohio's Sunshine Law.

Stepp says he is now letting his attorney handle matters, indicating that there will be legal steps taken.

Stepp has been on paid administrative leave since April 8 while an audit is underway in the district on some of the fringe benefits he received. His outstanding student loans the district agreed to pay and an $83,000 bonus have sparked major controversy.

The school board also voted 4 to 1 Tuesday night to remove the May school levy that was on the ballot, in light of this controversy.

School district parents formed a Facebook group to protest the board's handling of Stepp's contract and his bonuses. They also protested outside the last school board meeting.
