Investigation of Geneva Superintendent wrapped up in November, no details, no word from School Board

The investigation into allegations against Geneva School Superintendent Patricia Garcia wrapped up in November, but there’s still no word on its finding and no action has been taken by the School Board.


Sources told the Finger Lakes Times Garcia berated staff in hallways and in front of fellow workers routinely. In meetings, she is accused of humiliating staff. In classrooms, she allegedly undermined the authority of teachers in front of their students, including a case where she berated a teacher conducting a remote course before taking over class instruction.

Mark Petitt began an investigation September 29 and issued a final report to the School Board November 22. He was paid $17,828 to conduct the investigation.

Garcia told the Times she had “difficult conversations in our administrative meetings” that required “open, honest communication with each other.”
