The Iroquois School Superintendent is stepping down.
The Iroquois School Board made the announcement at a special meeting Friday night.
Superintendent Sam Signorino has been on administrative leave since allegations surfaced a few weeks ago. Signorino was accused of using district employees to work on his car, in a district maintenance building.
The allegations came in anonymous letters and pictures to the board. The pictures were posted on the "Iroquois Braves" Facebook page. The author of the page claimed Signorino was also posting to an online car forum, during school hours. The board put him on paid leave, while they investigated.
On Friday night, they announced the results of the investigation. Board members say Signorino did nothing wrong. However, he has submitted his resignation, effective January 31st. And in a surprising twist, Iroquois School Board President Steve Cabaday is stepping down as president, although he will stay on the board.
Cabaday says he gave Signorino permission to do the work. Again, the board found Signorino did nothing wrong.
