HAMBURG, NY (WKBW) - A source in the Hamburg School District said Superintendent Richard Jetter falsified a police report in which he claimed his car was vandalized during a May 6 board meeting.
Jetter has admitted this to police and will likely lose "his dream job" as a result, said the source.
The source is a self-described supporter of the superintendent.
Jetter was temporarily stripped of power on Tuesday after the district was informed by Village of Hamburg Police Department that Jetter was under investigation, according to a statement released by the district.
Two top administrators are now running day-to-day operations in Jetter's place. Assistant Superintendents Colleen Kaney and Barbara Sporyz will serve as acting superintendents of the district.
School board members will meet at 7:15 a.m. on Wednesday "to discuss its options regarding Dr. Jetter," the statement said.
Eyewitness News has learned the options will include placing Jetter on administrative leave pending the outcome of the police investigation, the source said.
Jetter's personal vehicle was banged up, a part of the side mirror removed and a threatening note found under the windshield wiper following a May 6 meeting at Union Pleasant Elementary School.
The police were called and a report was filed, in which Jetter blamed vandals.
Some blamed politics and a power struggle on the school board for the apparent vandalism.
The following day, parents and teachers rallied around the superintendent pledging to support him.
Days later, Jetter reported that someone had egged a rental van in the driveway of his Tonawanda home.
Jetter is now under investigation for allegedly falsifying the report about his car being vandalized on May 6, multiple sources confirmed.
The start of the school year is roughly six weeks away and already the Hamburg School District has been contacted by several local retired superintendents who have offered their services to fill in on a temporary bases, sources said.
