  • Residents address school board: Superintendent's suspension was 'too light'

     Superintendent Sam Sanders’ 30-day suspension without pay ends Wednesday. The sanction by the LaRue County School Board followed his arrest for DUI while driving a school-owned vehicle, and speeding, in March.

    Sanders pleaded not guilty to the charges in LaRue District Court. He lost his driving privileges after the judge learned he had refused a Breathalyzer test. His next court appearance is June 19.

    Several residents do not think the sanction fitted the violation – and voiced their disappointment at Monday’s school board meeting.
