Holmes Teacher's Union Files Complaint Against Superintendent

Bonifay, Fla. - Holmes County School District employees have filed a complaint against their boss.

Holmes County's teacher's union filed the complaint at Tuesday's school board meeting after Superintendent Terry Mears allegedly made some controversial comments about tardiness and guns during last week's active shooter training. 

"It was almost a form of reprimand. I myself was approximately in my seat 30 to 45 minutes before the start time," Steverson said. "The start time of the meeting was at 1:30 and the speaking to, the reprimand occurred at 1:36."

FEA Director, tony gentile says this is not the first time something like this has happened.

"We've had other instances where we haven't necessarily taken any action but this sort of behavior needs to stop and that's what Vicki's message to the board was today," he said. 

Employees were also concerned about alleged comments Mears made regarding teacher's bringing guns on campus. When asked Monday about the comments by News 13 Mears said he never said anything like that and only urged teacher's to follow the law. Florida law makes it illegal for a teacher to bring a gun to school. 

"By the following day an email was issued to all staff in the school district indicating that the school board policy was very precise on that issues and that teachers are not to bring any guns on campus at all," Gentile said. 

Mears declined to comment Tuesday.
