MEDINA, OH (WOIO) -
Angry Medina parents pack the Medina Performing Arts Center to express outrage over their superintendent's new contract which has some pretty nice bonuses.
Dr. Randy Stepp has been superintendent of Medina Schools since 2006.
A large crowd showed up to a special meeting to find out why the school board gave him an $83,000 bonus.
It's called a signing bonus, but really it's a retention bonus trying to keep him here. And if he ever left he'd have to re-pay it.
"Over course of the last three or four years, there have been probably six or seven school district search firms that have contacted me" said Stepp.
Stepp has agreed to give up his $83,000 signing bonus, as well as the merit raises in his new contract.
At the heated impromptu meeting, complete with several officers, even some of the school board members admitted to parents the bonus was probably not a great idea, especially seeing as how they have a levy on the May ballot asking tax payers for more money.
News of the bonus got out on Monday and by Wednesday Stepp announced he was declining the extra money.
At least 150 people turned up to voice opposition to Stepp's new contract at a special board meeting Wednesday night.
Instead of the board answering any questions, residents were given index cards and asked to submit questions in writing that would be addressed on the district's website and at a public forum on Friday, March 8th.
