Hayden superintendent returns to work

— Hayden Superintendent Trudy Vader returned to work Tuesday and will be on probation for the remainder of her contract, which is up for renewal June 30.

Vader was placed on administrative leave with pay Friday after being arrested Jan. 27 on suspicion of DUI.

The Hayden School Board met Monday morning to discuss the incident. President Brian Hoza said they reviewed policies and procedures and Vader’s contract, which does not include a moral clause.

“There is nothing specifically relevent to this particular incident so we’ll treat it more as a personnel matter,” Hoza said.

After meeting in executive session, Hoza said the board voted to place Vader on probation, which Hoza said will involve “intermittent reviews.”

“We had a thorough conversation considering all types of options, and this is just where the board landed in the end,” Hoza said.
