Granite City schools almost done with internal investigations

KMOV - The Granite City school superintendent says his district is almost through with its disciplinary action against an unprecedented number of employees at the high school accused of misconduct.

A truant officer has been dismissed, while a special education teacher was allowed to resign.

A teacher's aide was also suspended without pay for two months and a coach accused of drinking on the job has a dismissal hearing.

A district vice principal is now the subject of a private investigation.

"As I speak today. I think we are coming to conclusions on some of those fronts and by the time the new semester rolls around in January, this will be behind us," said Harry Briggs of the Granity City School District.

The coach's dismissal hearing is scheduled the end of the month. The probe into allegations against the vice principal should begin this Friday.

Ethics in education seminars for district employees are also on tap.
