Principal Forced to Take Paid Leave
Lori Dunsmore will not be working at the Rhode Island School for the Deaf again even though there is only a couple of weeks left in the school year. Although Dunsmore is being removed from her position by trustees, she will still draw her $116,000 salary. Dunsmore, who is deaf herself, was in her 4th year at the school, which was taken over by the state Board of Regents for poor performance two years ago. Dunsmore had already made it public that she would not ask for her contract to be renewed. It expires at the end of the month.
