HAGERSTOWN - A hiring process review under way in Washington County Public Schools - launched after the recent firing of a substitute bus assistant - is reaching every department, Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan said.
"Yes, I have initiated a process ... to ensure we have not only consistency, but fairness .... Right now, I'm not sure we do," she said.
On Sept. 29, The Herald-Mail reported that Dana Burcker's employment as a substitute bus assistant ended within 10 days of her hiring. School officials would not say why Burcker was no longer employed with the school system.
Burcker, who has a criminal record, told a reporter she never applied for the position and was offered the job during a phone call.
