MISSOULA, Mont. -

Trustees for Ravalli county’s Florence-Carlton schools have set a date to take up continuing community accusations against Superintendent John McGee.

During a board meeting Tuesday, Board of Trustees Chair Pat Appleby announced a special meeting to be held March 18 in the school’s library.

McGee has been under fire from the Florence community since admitting that he plagiarized a column for the school’s community newsletter.  He apologized, but critics came forward with more accusations and began calling for the superintendent’s resignation.

McGee isn’t the only item on the agenda.  There have been accusations of Title IX violations at the school and the board plans to take that up as well.  Title IX is the federal law providing for equal treatment of the sexes in education.

The March 18 board meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:00 p.m.
