Posted at 5:28 PM, Nov 06, 2019

LANSING, Mich. — There's an update on the search for the next Lansing schools superintendent, the community will now get a chance to provide feedback.

An input session is being held Wednesday night at 6:30 and another on November 12th.

They will take place at the Administration Building on Kalamazoo Street.

The sessions will be conducted by the Michigan Association of School Boards.

The meetings are happening due to concerns being voiced about Mark Coscarella being named Superintendent.

Allegations from his past have recently surfaced, including one woman saying she had an encounter with him when she was student teacher in his class where she says he stripped down to his underwear and danced near her after locking her in the classroom.

In addition, Coscarella resigned from Holt Schools in 2002 after accusations of providing and showing pornography to the baseball team he coached.

Coscarella has denied these allegations but says he could have done things differently when it comes to the baseball team.

At the meeting, parents will be able to tell the school board what they think of the superintendent search and Mark Coscarella.
