EAST HAVEN – The Board of Education in East Haven won’t be extending the superintendent’s contract with the district.

Dr. Portia Bonner is entering her final year of her three-year contract with East Haven Public Schools. On Tuesday night, members of the Board of Education voted 4-3 against a contract extension.

Board members discussed the details of the contract extension behind closed doors in an executive session before the public vote. Also before the vote, parents delivered a petition with nearly 600 signatures to board members asking them to vote down Dr. Bonner’s contract extension. They are not happy with how she has managed the district, especially in light of budget issues.
