GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — The Green Bay Area Public School District Board of Education says it's reviewing "issues" following the appearance of Superintendent Claude Tiller Jr. on a radio talk show.

  • In a statement through an attorney, the board said it's aware of an Atlanta radio talk show interview with Tiller.
  • The statement said the board is working through "issues raised that warrant further review and discussion."
  • Former Green Bay East High School president, Ed Dorff, claims he heard the broadcast and requests to make it public.

(The following is a transcription of the full broadcast story)

Green Bay School board members say they're holding private talks after a new superintendent here gave a radio interview in Atlanta.

The issues, as the board called them, concern Superintendent Dr. Claude Tiller Junior.

Through an attorney, I received a statement from the Green Bay Area Public School District Board of Education.

They said they're aware Tiller was on an Atlanta radio show, and they're now "currently working though some of the issues raised that warrant further review and discussion."

Last week, Tiller appeared on a talk show on WAOK in Atlanta to discuss leadership as the first black superintendent of Green Bay public schools, according to a promotion for the show's episode.

Superintendent Tiller started with GBAPS in July 2023.

The full statement from the board, provided through an attorney, is below:

"Board of Education members are aware of the Atlanta radio talk show interview with Superintendent, Dr. Claude Tiller, Jr.

We are currently working through some of the issues raised that warrant further review and discussion. Because this is in part a personnel issue, we are not able to make any additional comments at this time."

The Board is directing all questions to its attorney.

We asked him if Tiller made comments that are being reviewed and if there will be any kind of disciplinary action, but we haven't yet heard back.
