DETROIT - The Detroit Public Schools Board of Education voted 6-4 to formally reprimand Superintendent Connie Calloway, a move that may hinder her in the future but creates no immediate threats to her job security, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The board decided to proceed with the reprimand after Calloway received a negative performance review, the Free Press reported.

The average length of a superintendent's stay in an urban school district is just over three years, according to the Free Press.
