No class for V'ville teacher

In February 2003 he was issued a letter of reprimand for allowing the boys junior varsity basketball team to swim in the pool before it was open.

Additionally, he had been counseled verbally and in writing concerning inappropriate comments to students.

Langevin said it has yet to be determined in what capacity Crandall, who is also a soccer coach, would return next year.

"We'll cross that bridge when we come to it," said Langevin.

When the recommendations were initially released by the hearing officer, Langevin said that she was hoped for dismissal, not only because of the allegations but also because Crandall had been repeatedly counseled in the past.

It was the hearing officer's belief that a 60-day unpaid suspension would alert Crandall to the severity of his misconduct.

Kathy Fiero, president of the Voorheesville Teacher's Association, said, "We don't have a stance other than to respect the process and the hearing officer's decision."

Efforts to reach Crandall and his lawyer were unsuccessful.""
