McCarvers Dismissed Day After Webb Leaves Office
Dr. Webb had one final set of firings before he left office on Friday: he fired both Dale and Crystal McCarver. The McCarvers are both tenured employees with the school system, and they are reportedly already in the process exploring their legal options. Dr. Webb sent a certified letter to the McCarvers on Saturday, one day after he finished his term as director. Dale reportedly has been with the school system for 28 years, and Crystal has been with the school system for 15 years.
Update, 6/19, 11:22AM: The Ashland City Times has an article about a former employee of the school system who was initially fired, but then allowed to resign. This former employee, a male teacher, alleged sexual harassment against Crystal McCarver. The harassment complaint was reportedly filed after the employee was allowed to resign. The allegations were later deemed to have “no merit,” but were reportedly recently brought to light through what the McCarvers are describing as a “political smear” by former director of schools Tim Webb.
