It will be a lengthy system of due process as education officials ponder the future of Principal Eric Baim after a DUI charge over the weekend.
Baim, 37, was charged in Berlin with failure to obey a traffic signal and driving under the influence at 1:53 a.m. on Friday, police records indicate. He was at the intersection of the Berlin Turnpike and Spruce Brook Road, according to police.
Baim lives in Bristol.
Superintendent of Schools Mary Conway said on Monday that she did not want to comment on any pending personnel matters. The Board of Education conducted an executive session on Monday to discuss the matter but took no action.
Conway was clear that no official recommendation has been made and added that any employee recommended for termination must first get a hearing from a balanced state board. That board then reports to the local school board and the local board then takes on the matter, Conway said.
