Embattled Dubuque Superintendent Requests Hearing

DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — The embattled superintendent of the Dubuque school district has requested a hearing before an administrative law judge over the future of her contract.

The Telegraph Herald says Larie Godinez made a formal request on Thursday. She had until Saturday to ask for a hearing before the school board or a judge.

Godinez is on an extended leave of absence after the board on Monday took a step toward firing her, citing a loss of confidence by staff and failure to lead effectively. The board and district officials declined to elaborate because of personnel issues.

Godinez's contract expires in 2014.
