Conn. Court: Judge Wrong To Order Vallas Ouster
Vallas said that would be up to the new board, which will comprise four new members elected last week and five returning board members.
"I am trying to give them flexibility," he said.
The school board elections gave control to critics who want Vallas out. He said the election showed a desire to eliminate vestiges of state control of Bridgeport's schools and change superintendents.
Vallas was hired as superintendent after the elected school board was replaced by another appointed by the state. The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled the move illegal.
Vallas, a former Chicago schools chief, was selected last week by Gov. Pat Quinn to be his 2014 running mate.
