(Editor’s note: The following information was released by the Indian Lake Board of Education on Monday. The school superintendent, Patrick O’Donnell, was indicted on several counts, including rape, last week in Logan County.)
Patrick O’Donnell filed for a hearing concerning his employment status in front of a referee appointed by the Ohio Department of Education within the prescribed ten-day window after notification of the Board’s action on June 29th to place him on unpaid leave pending action to terminate. Legal counsel for the Indian Lake Board of Education has set a hearing date of August 4, 2017, at 9 am at Indian Lake Schools to comply with statutory requirements. This date has not been approved by any appointed referee from the Ohio Department of Education and, therefore, is subject to change.
Submitted by the Indian Lake Board of Education.
