MULLICA TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Union members are seeking the removal of a southern New Jersey school superintendent who is pursuing tenure charges against a teacher who reported finding two kindergarten students engaged in sex play.

Wednesday's no-confidence vote by the Mullica Township Education Association reflects the members' frustrations with Superintendent Brenda Harring-Marro.

Harring-Marro suspended teacher Kelly Mascio on Sept. 30 after Mascio reported finding two 5-year-olds engaged in sexual play in a classroom bathroom. The superintendent and school board want to fire her, claiming Mascio did not properly supervise her students.

In an email to The Press of Atlantic City (http://bit.ly/1ieNCYR ), the superintendent says the no-confidence vote reflects a small group that refuses to recognize changes in the profession. She says she's disappointed the union leadership did not speak with her.
