School superintendent on leave amid sex harassment lawsuit

TAYLORSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Published reports say a Kentucky school superintendent has been placed on administrative leave following a lawsuit that accuses him of sexual harassment. News outlets report the Spencer County School Board voted 4-0 Monday to place Superintendent Chuck Adams on paid leave as it investigates allegations a teacher made in the lawsuit. Adams declined to comment on the allegations and told WDRB-TV in a message that the board’s decision “is simply protocol in situations such as this.” Attorney Thomas Clay filed the lawsuit last week on behalf of the teacher. It cites multiple examples of alleged harassment and says the teacher complained to superiors but did not get any relief.
