LIZTON, Ind. – A change of leadership has taken place during a school board meeting on Tuesday night.
Northwest Hendricks School Corporation superintendent Michael Springer told CBS4 that he and the board of trustees have agreed to separate.
“The Board of Trustees and I have agreed to separate,” Springer said.
The resignation comes at a time of controversy within the school district. A Tri West football coach faces a complaint by the Indiana Department of Education for accusations of “immoral acts” and a “neglect of duty.” This comes after allegations that the coach sent inappropriate messages to a female student and touched her on multiple occasions.
It is not clear, however, if Springer’s resignation relates to the ongoing controversy.
