The Archbold Area School Board and Norm Beck, an Archbold Middle School math teacher, have reached an agreement, which was ratified at the board meeting, Monday, March 15.
David Deskins, Archbold Area School District superintendent, said Beck, who has been on paid administrative leave since Jan. 21, will return to the classroom today, Wednesday.
Deskins declined to release details of the agreement, saying the issues involved were personnel matters.
“Information was brought to my attention that resulted in the need for an investigation,” Deskins said.
“To allow that investigation to occur, the school board determined it was necessary to place Mr. Beck on administrative leave, pending the investigation.”
A substitute teacher was hired to cover Beck’s classes, Deskins said.
“As a result of the investigation, the board has reached an agreement with Beck allowing him to return to the classroom,” Deskins said.–David Pugh
