Earlier this month, a Twitter account called We See What You’re Doing posted a screenshot of a Northeastern School District principal’s personal Facebook page, which shared a video saying that Black Lives Matter is a “leftist lie.” The post asked Shallow Brook Intermediate School Principal Scott D’Orazio why he didn’t tweet it from his school. It tagged the intermediate school’s Twitter account. Now his job is on the line.
The district administration, which includes Supt. Stacey Sidle, recommended his firing during a school board meeting on Monday night. District officials allege D’Orazio acted outside of his authority by deleting the social media post and commentary on the school’s account over the matter, solicitor William Zee said. D’Orazio will face a board hearing, which has not yet been scheduled, he said. George Margetas and Edward Paskey, D’Orazio’s attorneys, issued a statement on his behalf on Wednesday: “Any suggestion that Scott D’Orazio is racist or harbors prejudice against anyone on the basis of their race is simply not true and contrary to his values. Because he has not yet been provided with the notice of hearing or charges from the school district, any further comment would be inappropriate. Scott looks forward to making a more complete statement at the appropriate time and in the appropriate venue.”
