A special meeting to determine whether a former candidate for county superintendent of schools was legally fired is scheduled today, officials said.
The Ventura County Board of Education will hear the opinion of the Ventura County Counsel on whether Supt. Charles Weis acted within his authority when he terminated Dan Flynn's contract effective July 1.
The county board will meet at 5 p.m. today in the new offices of the county Superintendent of Schools at 5189 Verdugo Way in Camarillo.
The meeting, which is open to the public, is expected to draw supporters of Flynn, a former principal who was fired after challenging the county schools superintendent for election.
