Michael Bernard, Chairman of the board of Jamaica College
 
The Board of Jamaica College is considering a request by the school's Old Boys' Association to terminate the contract of former Education Minister Ruel Reid as head of the institution. 
 
Speaking on RJR's call-in programme Hotline Friday morning, Jamaica College Chairman, Michael Bernard, said the Board received the request from the Association three months ago. 
 
Mr. Bernard said the school is receiving legal advice on how to proceed. 
 
"What we have to ensure is that there is an education code that has to be followed. There's due process, there is the whole process of ensuring that we investigate matters and that we take into consideration all concerns and complaints that are put to us," he explained. 
 
Mr. Reid is currently on eight months' vacation leave from Jamaica College following the end of his two-year secondment to the Education Ministry. 
 
His leave ends in November.
 
Incentives 
 
The Board of Jamaica College is to meet on Wednesday to discuss a request by Mr. Reid for the school to resume paying him millions of dollars in incentives he received while on active duty as principal.
 
It is understood that the incentives include more than $2 million per annum in additional salary, a fully furnished house and the payment of utility bills.
