Chickasha School Administrator Resigns Following Suspension
CHICKASHA, Oklahoma - A Chickasha administrator has resigned following an investigation within the school district.
Pete Bush, the district’s maintenance director, originally faced claims of embezzlement. Tuesday night, during a special school board meeting, lawyers for the district cleared him of those accusations. However, Bush still resigned.
Bush's attorney said other factors played a role.
Bush was one of five employees suspended before Christmas break. Parents say staff were suspended because they protested a new curriculum put in place by the district.
