Riverdale school board hosts special meeting next week

The Riverdale school board will host a special meeting on July 21.

During the meeting, which will be held in the Riverdale Central Office’s board room, the board will then enter into executive session to discuss the appointment, employment, dismissal, discipline, demotion or compensation of an employee, according to a meeting notice. The board will then take action on the personnel per those considerations.

Superintendent Eric Hoffman could not be reached to confirm whether the actions taken will result in the termination of Barb Williams, a kindergarten teacher who was caught on camera shoving her student and picking him up by the face.

Williams has been charged with a first-degree misdemeanor of child endangerment and was suspended for 10 days toward the end of the school year.
