ONONDAGA COUNTY, N.Y. -- The saga of the Jordan-Elbridge School District might be nearing an end. Settlement talks began Wednesday in New York State Supreme Court.
Right now, there are least three different lawsuits against the district, all stemming from a number of terminations and suspensions of district officials.
The judge met individually with lawyers from each side for several hours Wednesday afternoon and both sides say this is just the beginning of what they anticipate will be a long process.
Any settlement proposed by the judge would have to be reviewed by the entire Jordan-Elbridge Board of Education for both consideration and a vote before anything could be enacted.
The district has also notified both suspended high school principal David Zehner and suspended assistant superintendent of business and finance Bill Hamilton the reasons for their suspensions.
The board listed 128 charges against Hamilton. The charges against Zehner haven't yet been released to the public.
