HAMBURG NY, (WKBW) It’s been one week since the Hamburg School Board placed Superintendent Dr. Richard Jetter on paid administrative leave, after learning the superintendent lied to police in a police report about vandalism to his car.

The district now wants him out of his high-paying job, and soon.

Jetter has the right to a hearing, or he can resign on his own. The school district’s attorney, Andrew Freedman says he has attempted to contact Jetter multiple times but has not been able to reach him.

Jetter is still receiving his $164,000 per year salary, about $450 per day.

The superintendent is expected to answer to the misdemeanor charges in the Village of Hamburg on August 6 at 5:30PM.
