The superintendent of the Methacton School District has resigned after a lengthy investigation conducted by the district.
The resignation of Timothy Quinn was prompted by a report this fall by FOX 29 investigative reporter Jeff Cole which raised questions about his relationship with the district's director of curriculum, Dianne Barre.
Jeff Cole's report included emails, which seemed to show a personal relationship between the two.
After FOX 29 showed the emails to the president of the school board, a law firm was hired and the investigation was launched.
FOX 29 has learned the school accepted both Quinn's and Barre's resignation during a scheduled board meeting Tuesday night.
The school board president said that both Quinn and Barre resigned before any hearings, so there were no findings of fact regarding the allegations.
The district is not expected to comment any further on the issue.
Layers, layers, layers. Time to bundle up once again.
High temperature around the freezing mark today, with sunshine.
Our Saturday storm begins with snow by 10 am. Winter weather stays around all day and night tomorrow. A couple of inches accumulation in the metro area. More to the north and west, less to the south and east. Only a rain event for the shore.
Be careful! Whatever type of precip, we can promise you tricky travel tomorrow. The storm exits Sunday morning.
