According to a Press Release submitted by Cobre School Superintendent, Jeff Spaletta, for over four months, the Cobre Consolidated School District and Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Spaletta have been the subject of multiple investigations into unfounded and unsubstantiated complaints and grievances filed by employees of the District. With the full support of the current Cobre School Board, Dr. Spaletta cooperated with these investigators resulting in complete exoneration of his name. Dr. Spaletta has now rededicated his efforts into implementing his post-entry plan and vision for Cobre Schools. Dr. Spaletta’s mission as Superintendent of Cobre remains steadfast. According to the press release, he continues to advocate for the improvement of the education of Cobre students. He is focused upon filling recent administrative and teaching vacancies with dedicated staff who are committed to excellence and rebuilding the trust between the District and the Cobre community. Dr. Spaletta publicly wishes to thank the Cobre School Board for their transparency and due diligence throughout this process and the Cobre staff and community members who stood by him and are ready to expect the best for their students.
