FALL RIVER — Fall River Superintendent Matthew Malone will be docked one month’s pay from his more than $203,000 annual salary. The School Committee’s disciplinary action is in response to an investigation and report that indicates he harassed School Department employees, according to anonymous sources. 

The terms of Malone’s amended contract were released Friday afternoon in a statement from the School Committee and through its attorney, Bruce Assad. 

The reduction in Malone’s salary amounts to a total of $16,917 and there are other marked changes to the contract. 

The School Committee can terminate Malone without cause and rather than compensating him at departure with six months’ pay, the amount is reduced to three months’ pay. 

The school board has the right to terminate Malone without any compensation “if there are credible allegations of bullying or harassment of any employee of the School Department.”

A fourth term of the contract, the School Committee has the right to send Malone to undergo an independent medical examination to determine if he is capable of performing the functions of his job “should a question of fitness arise in the future.” 

Earlier this month in a majority vote, School Committee members voted on the amendments to Malone’s contract in closed session.
