SCOOP! School superintendent who pooped all over school set to get over $100,000 from New Jersey school district
The former Kenilworth Public Schools superintendent, under a separation agreement, will be paid his full salary through the end of September.
The New Jersey school superintendent who was accused of repeatedly defecating on school property is set to receive over $100,000 from his district until he resigns, reports state.
The coaches and staff members of Holmdel High School, New Jersey, were baffled after finding poop on the institution's running tracks for months on end and the mystery of the whodunnit was finally solved in May this year. The pooper turned out to be a school superintendent of another district, according to police officials.
The puzzle was solved after Kenilworth Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Tramaglini was caught on surveillance camera squatting by the running track. Reports state that a camera was set up at the location after staff members complained to the school resource officer that someone had been taking a dump on the tracks "on a daily basis."
Police officials had arrested the superintendent and charged him with lewdness, littering and defecating in public. Tramaglini was also granted a leave of absence from his $150,000 per year job until the case was adjudicated.
However, latest reports state that the former Kenilworth Public Schools superintendent, under a separation agreement, will be paid his full salary through the end of September. He will also be given two months worth severance pay and $23,827 in unused vacation time, according to NJ.com.
The former superintendent's motive for the serial defecation has not yet been released by the authorities, reports state.
Reports earlier this month said that Tramaglini is also suing the local police department for $1 million in damages. The former superintendent decided to sue the authorities after he was removed from his position as the school's superintendent and had to tender a resignation to the school's authorities.
Documents attained by Ashbury Park Press states that Tramaglini has decided to sue the police department "in excess of $1 million, which includes, but is not limited to, the reasonable financial loss of income, harm to reputation, emotional distress, invasion of privacy, and intrusion on seclusion."
