“We cannot comment, because it is a personnel matter and it’s being investigated by the sheriff’s department,” School district spokesperson Kenita Bowers said.

If charges are filed, the information will be made public, she said.

Hardy District School Board Member Herb DeGroft said he knew nothing about the investigation, but planned to look into it.
