Judge Denies Raise For South Hadley Superintendent

BOSTON (CBS) – A superintendent criticized for his handling of the Phoebe Prince bullying case won’t be getting a raise after all.

Last year, the South Hadley school committee renewed Gus Sayer’s contract and gave him a raise in a secret session.

But, a judge has now tossed out that raise, and fined the school committee because the meeting violated state law.

Some parents wanted Sayer fired after Phoebe Prince was bullied so relentlessly that she took her own life.
