Its not a rumor, nor is it supposition. The media, and co-workers say she has been terminated, and the BOE are in the process of selecting a new principal.
Can you cite the media source that has said she has been fired? I have been looking all over for it, just to get some facts.

Does anyone know why Andrea Lacey was fired as principal of John Joy?
Why don't you go ask the school board? No, you'd rather come on here and start your bs.

There are no facts that's why they come on here. Just post whatever you want to say and start the rumor.

What does everyone on here just look at the comics when they get the paper? It was in the paper that she is no longer principal. She was terminated. Thats was in the Rome paper last week. The reason was not released. Look at the back issues of the Rome paper.

The absence of John E. Joy Elementary School Principal Andria Lacey will continue for an undetermined period, at least through Wednesday next week, says Rome district Superintendent Jeffrey P. Simons, who is not specifying the reasons.

Simons said today he anticipates the Board of Education will take action at its Wednesday, Dec. 7 meeting to approve the appointment of Naz Fiore as interim administrator at the school retroactive to Nov. 18, when Lacey’s absence began. Fiore, a former longtime principal in the district who is retired, has been filling in for Lacey on a day-to-day basis since Nov. 18, and Simons had indicated a week ago that it would continue at least through today.

Referring to the Dec. 7 board meeting, Simons said he anticipates that Lacey will be out "at least through that day," and emphasized that "the date is undetermined" for her return. Fiore has indicated that he would be available "through the holidays," said Simons. He anticipates Fiore would be substituting "until further notice," and added he did not know a date when Fiore would complete his appointment as interim administrator.

Lacey is "out for reasons both personal and personnel," said Simons, who would not elaborate. When asked whether there was a suspension, he said Lacey is "not suspended."

Lacey could not be reached for comment. She has been principal at Joy School, 8194 Bielby Road, for about nine years and is a tenured administrator. Her salary is $94,692, according to Simons’ office. The Joy school’s enrollment is about 240 students in grades K-4.

Fiore’s pay rate as interim administrator is expected to be in the range of about $500 per day, said Simons. Fiore’s background in the district includes being a former longtime principal at Stokes Elementary School.

People need to stop spreading nonsense and learn how to read. She is on leave and still employed. I can't believe all the lies being used to smear her.

I came on here to see if anything had been posted regarding Principal Lacey. As a parent of a child who attends John Joy, I am interested to know the facts about the situation. Not that Topix is a place to get Facts, but to get more insight on the situation.

I will tell you this: Naz Fiore is a Big improvement to that school, evident by what I saw at an Assembly at the school a couple of weeks ago. He was very approachable to parents, and you tell that the Teachers both liked, and respected him as an Administrator.

Lacey reminds me of the First Grade Teacher from Billy Madison. Yeah, the one who smeared paste all over her face. It was scary to see how she interacted with the children at Joy.

I lost all respect for her last year during a picnic that the school hosted outside. The one where they had the DJ, and the inflates, and the kids ate lunch outside. My wife pointed her out. Granted, this is during school hours, when students are present. Here she was wearing a tank top, and short shorts. I'm sorry, but as an administrator, that is very unprofessional. If she wants to go to work during the Summer, or even during a Superintendents Day dressed like that, then more power to her, but when students are there, there is no excuse for that.

Whatever the deal is, it doesn't surprise me, and I am anticipating the results of the Board meeting on the 7th.

If you went to school and earned numerous degrees you could make $95,000 too. It all starts with you earning your GED. I have faith,you can do it.

Guess you don't notice how the students dress now days, and parents too. Not too long ago I dropped my child off to school, and saw girls walking by that dressed like street walkers. Eighth graders no less. Smoking, and using language that would make a sailor blush. What are parents thinking by letting their child dress, and act like that? Really folks maybe there is some personal reason the women is out on leave? This thread is typical of the weak minds, and busy bodies we have in Rome. All you folks want to do in Rome is bad mouth everyone, and act like idiots.
AMEN
