Multiple cars stuck on I-95 with flat tires after driving over debris

Boca High principal reprimanded for proposing on football field


The principal of Boca Raton High School has been reprimanded for using the school’s football field to propose to his girlfriend in December 2014, resolving a months-long investigation that led the principal to sue the school district last summer.

Investigators found that Principal Geoff McKee used the field to propose to a former teacher at the school while a group of friends and relatives looked on. McKee organized the event without formally leasing the field, a violation of school district policy.

Superintendent Robert Avossa issued McKee a written reprimand last month, warning him to “conduct yourself in a professional manner at all times.”

The reprimand draws to a conclusion an investigation that began in February 2014 when McKee’s ex-wife raised concerns about McKee’s relationship with a former teacher at his school.

The investigation prompted McKee to sue the school district in May, alleging that the probe was based largely on information that his ex-wife, a part-time actress and former model, had illegally obtained by hacking into his private email account.

McKee’s attorney, Fred Schwartz, said that he and the school district resolved their legal battle, and that McKee was happy with the resolution.

“I’m very happy with the wisdom of our current school district superintendent and his staff in being able to see through all of the false complaints and focus on the one thing that Geoff did incorrectly,” he said, “and that was allow friends to watch him propose to his current wife on the football field at Boca High on a holiday.”
