In a Monday morning interview, Florence-Carlton Superintendent John McGee said he would step down from his position if asked to do so by the school board.
McGee said more than once in the interview that he was sorry for the at least two instances of plagiarism he committed, and that he is looking through the eight years of school publications to determine if there are any others. McGee said he has spoken to high school English classes and shared with them the effects of plagiarism on his career and his credibility as an educator.
He spoke of meeting with the board and seeing their disappointment when he admitted plagiarizing a story related to the Sandy Hook School shootings and said he would abide by whatever decision the five-member board would determine.
McGee said, as of Monday morning, there is nothing on the Tuesday night school board agenda to discuss his situation.
