Community Speaks Out About Toppenish Superintendent Steve Myers

Posted: Updated:

TOPPENISH, Wash.- More than 150 people showed up to Tuesday night's Toppenish School Board meeting to voice concern after school board members criticized the work of Superintendent Steve Myers.

It was a very emotional meeting that continued to raise concerns even after the meeting was over. KNDO received a number of calls from people on the other side, people who say they're upset with Myer's leadership.

Close to twenty people took the podium at the meeting to express their concern to the school board about talk that Myer's could be leaving. They said he's a man that the disctrict can't do without.  

But on the flip side of that, there were a handful of calls into the KNDO newsroom Tuesday night from people who claimed they work for the Toppenish School District. The callers expressed their concern that the other side of this story isn't being told. They said there's a huge majority of workers in the district upset with Myer's leadership. The callers said they attended the school board meeting, but were afraid to go on camera or speak out against Mr. Myer's in fear of losing their job.
