School district responds to former superintendent's claims

NILES A school district is responding to accusations from their former superintendent.

Richard Weigel resigned in February following complaints that he bullied the staff. He is now interviewing for a superintendent job in Port Huron, and he told a newspaper there that an investigation cleared him of any wrongdoing. He claims that most of the 15 people who signed "no confidence" documents didn't know the details of the accusations.

The district followed up on Weigel's claims, and they tell The Leader that most of those teachers did in fact realize what they were signing.

So far, the district hasn't gone public with the results of their investigation, because it is privileged attorney/client information. They could waive that privilege.
