Even though school's
out, things are heating up in the Huron
The superintendent is off the job, after the school board suspended him
Superintendent Fred Fox is
suspended without pay and now 13abc is learning more about the report behind
It's 50 pages long was
gathered by a law firm hired by the board.
It accuses fox of several things that violate his contract.
The report accuses him
of having an improper business relationship with the CEO of Kalahari resorts. The report says Kalahari provided the
superintendent with free golfing, discounted rooms and other services. In return, the school district gave the
company better tax abatements than were offered to other companies.
Fox is accused of
turning in expenses from a 2011 education conference in Arizona that were not work related.
The report also says Fox
had an affair and other outside activities when he was supposed to be at
work. The report claims that violated
his contract and was a detriment to the school district.
The school board has
passed a resolution to initiate the process that may or may not lead to fox's
dismissal. In the meantime the district
treasurer is in charge of the day to day operations. Mike Weis tells 13abc that this is more a
disruption for the public and not internally.
Weis says the district will be ready to go when the kids return to class
at the end of August.
13abc put a call into
superintendent Fox's attorney but we have not heard back.
