GREENWICH, N.Y. - Greenwich Central School District Superintendent Matthias Donnelly was reinstated at the school board meeting Monday, after having been on paid administrative leave.
Donnelly had been on paid administrative leave while criminal charges were pending against him for apparently not reporting any alleged inappropriate touching by former district art teacher, Eric McHenry.
Donnelly, along with former elementary school principal, Benjamin Pisani, were facing misdemeanor charges for failing to act on accusations that McHenry had inappropriate contact with female students.
McHenry pleaded not guilty to accusations he had inappropriate contact with children between the ages of 8 and 12. He taught kindergarten through sixth grade at Greenwich Elementary. According to police, in total, 9 students of McHenry's came forward saying he touched their buttocks, chest or inner thighs in school.
