The Carrollton Exempted Village School District Board of Education is investigating allegations made to the Ohio Department of Education against Superintendent Dr. David Quattrochi.

In a statement released by the board just hours after meeting in executive session for two and one-half hours Wednesday morning, the board wrote:

“The Carrollton Exempted Village School District Board of Education holds all of its employees to high standards and remains committed to reviewing allegations against its employees in a manner that is objective and fair. Based on recent allegations the Ohio Department of Education Office of Professional Conduct received against Dr. Quattrochi, our board must investigate the claims made to determine whether they are substantiated or not.”

Board President Dan Ries placed Quattrochi on paid administrative leave Oct. 17, two days before the special meeting was held.

The statement said Quattrochi was placed on leave “to ensure an objective and fair investigation.”

Following the executive session, High School Principal Dave Davis was appointed to serve as acting superintendent. 

The board also hired Attorney Jason Stuckey as an investigator and the law firm of Bricker & Eckler from Cleveland.

“These actions should not be construed as indicating any decision by the board as to the creditability of allegations to be investigated. The board remains committed to its mission and students,” the statement read.
