According to the Central R-3 Board of Education the staff member suspended on a school weapons violation last week has resigned.
“The individual has submitted a resignation without an admission of wrongdoing and the board has accepted that resignation. This matter has now been resolved and the board would like to express its appreciation to the community for their support,” a district spokesperson stated in a press release.
The investigation stemmed from an incident where a weapon was found on school property. A letter was sent home to parents last week advising them of the situation with assurances that at no time was any student in danger.
“Recently, we advised that the district was investigating allegations of misconduct involving a non-certified employee. As previously noted, the allegations did not involve misconduct with a student.
“The allegations related to an employee having a firearm in their vehicle on district property. The individual had a conceal and carry license, however, board policy strictly prohibits a presence of firearms on school property,” the spokesperson stated.
