INVESTIGATION RESULTS IN ONE FIRING AND ONE RESIGNATION IN LIBERTY-BENTON SCHOOLS

The Liberty-Benton School Dis­trict announced Tues­day it will fire one employee, and another has resigned fol­low­ing vio­la­tions of school board poli­cies about con­tact between staff mem­bers and stu­dents.

The school says wrestling coach Shane Troyer will be fired and choral direc­tor Bryan Black has resigned fol­low­ing an inves­ti­ga­tion that found that Troyer vio­lated a num­ber of board poli­cies that involve con­tact with stu­dents of the dis­trict, and Black also vio­lated board poli­cies.

School offi­cials say they talked to a num­ber of stu­dents dur­ing the inves­ti­ga­tion, and now they believe there were a total of three high school stu­dents affected.

The dis­trict said infor­ma­tion from their inves­ti­ga­tions has been turned over to Han­cock County Children’s Pro­tec­tive Ser­vices and to the Ohio Depart­ment of Edu­ca­tion.

Cur­rently, no word on whether any charges are pending.
