A group of district principals and administrators have voted "no confidence" in the city school's superintendent.    

The Association of Supervisors and Administrators of Rochester or ASAR held a vote Monday. Eighty seven percent said they have no confidence in the current direction Superintendent Bolgen Vargas is taking the school. This is a symbolic vote, not a legal vote. It doesn't have any bearing on his job with the district.

The president of the group says they met with Vargas last week and they are encouraged they can resolve their issues.

Dr. Bolgen Vargas statement:

"Improving student achievement will require a serious change in the way we manage our organization. I understand that these changes cause discomfort for many administrators. Our school district desperately needs to improve, and it is regrettable to see the leaders of the administrative union focused on creating friction among adults instead of solutions to serve children.  My intent is to continue working with school administrators and every adult in this District to earn the confidence of the families we serve."
