POWAY, Calif. — The Poway Unified School Board voted unanimously to fire Superintendent John Collins during a closed session Sunday night.
Board members also voted to begin litigation to recover money they say Dr. Collins owes the district, according to PUSD spokeswoman Christine Paik.
Collins was placed on administrative leave in April pending completion of an internal audit requested by the Board of Education. In 2011, Collins oversaw a school modernization bond that brought in $105 million, by raising the tax burden for future generations by nearly $1 billion.
Collins has a three-year contract that expires on June 30, 2017.
