The long and painful firing of Stacy Fulgenzi has drawn to a close – for now.
The former Robertson High School volleyball coach earlier this month lost her appeal of a decision by Las Vegas City Schools officials to terminate her teaching position at the district, where she also taught physical education.
Las Vegas City Schools Superintendent L. Larryssa Archuleta placed Fulgenzi on administrative leave last October – just weeks before the state volleyball tournament the Cardinals eventually won – for failing to follow proper procedures for depositing money from a fundraiser for breast cancer victims. Archuleta’s decision was upheld by the school board in a 4-1 vote in February.
