Floyd County dreams up a new superintendent
Trejbal is a Roanoke Times editorial writer. He is based in the New River Valley.
Floyd County School Board is all about transparency and public involvement these days. It rediscovered sunlight after being caught keeping secrets from the public, teachers and anyone else who might have been interested that Superintendent Terry Arbogast was making a lot more money than the books clearly indicated.
Now Arbogast is on his way out, a previously announced retirement accelerated. His long tenure at the top of the county’s schools will be remembered not for any successes but for the scandal at the end.
