School board officials aren’t yet why Corr was removed as superintendent.

It is being reported that Corr and Lolli were under allegations of discrimination and harassment.

DPS has not responded to WYSO’s request for comment, but other news outlets are reporting that School board President Robert Walkerhas said the matter “has nothing to do with students" and described Corr’s relationship with students as “healthy and positive.”
