Orono Orchestra Director Meets Requirements Needed to Teach 

A popular Orono educator–who faced losing his job because he was 2 points shy of passing a state certification exam — has met all the requirements he needs to continue to teach.

The state’s education certification coordinator Mark Cyr says all Waldo Caballero has left to do is fill out routine paperwork.

Caballero is the orchestra director for grades K through 12.

Students and supporters upset about him potentially being replaced protested at a few meetings in Orono.

We weren’t able to reach the school’s superintendent, but Cyr believes Caballero will be able to keep his job.
