Bear Creek principal dismissed

The Bend-La Pine Schools board has voted unanimously to terminate Matt Montoya’s contract at tonight’s school board meeting.

Montoya was hired as the principal of Bear Creek Elementary in 2010. He was placed on paid leave on June 24 pending an investigation into his job performance.

On July 9, Montoya filed a discrimination complaint with the school board, alleging race and age discrimination. But last month the board determined the complaint was without merit.

Last month Anissa Wiseman was named Bear Creek’s interim principal.
