PLUM, Pa. — A western Pennsylvania school superintendent is resigning effective Oct. 1 in the wake of three male high school teachers who were convicted and sentenced to prison for having sex with three different female students.
The Plum School Board on Tuesday voted to accept Timothy Glasspool’s resignation. The same board also approved paying $300,000 to settle the district’s share of a lawsuit filed by one of the victims.
Terms of Glasspool’s severance package weren’t immediately revealed, nor were details of the legal settlement. The district says the settlement will be revealed once all parties involved sign off on it.
Glasspool was suspended last year while a law firm hired by the school board investigated reports that Glasspool didn’t do enough to document and investigate previous reports of abuse by at least one of the teachers. The law firm cleared Glasspool of wrongdoing.
