Toms River BOE: Ritacco will keep job

The Toms River Board of Education decided Superintendent of Schools Michael Ritacco will keep his job, despite a recent FBI raid of his home and office.

Agents raided the school board offices, Ritacco's home in Seaside Park, and another home owned by a district employee and confiscated a number of files in what officials say is an ongoing corruption investigation.

Some residents say they agree with the BOE's decision since Ritacco has not faced any charges related to the raid.

Meanwhile, Toms River approved the 2010 and 2011 school budgets on Tuesday, which some say is a victory for Ritacco and the district.
