MEDINA -- In a Thursday evening meeting, the Medina City School Board voted unanimously to give notice to School Superintendent Randolph Stepp that they intend to terminate him.
Stepp will have an opportunity to appear before the board Monday where he is given the chance to say why termination proceedings shouldn't begin.
Following that hearing, the entire Board will meet to consider whether or not to officially authorize termination proceedings to begin. That meeting is expected to take place on Monday, October 28 at 3 p.m.
The board placed Stepp on paid leave April 8 pending completion of a special state audit of his use of a district "carryover fund" held by the Medina County Schools' Educational Service Center.
Stepp filed a federal lawsuit in May against the school board members and district officials, claiming breach of contract, defamation and invasion of privacy.
Earlier this week, the state auditor said Stepp must repay about $4,000 for questionable expenses including gift cards and travel upgrades.
