MANSFIELD, OH - Madison Local Schools' Board of Education held a special meeting on Wednesday to determine whether or not to proceed with an investigation after receiving complaints about an unspecified employee. Immediately after the meeting began, school board members broke into executive session to discuss personnel matters - a meeting that lasted nearly three and a half hours.

Students and parents waited until the Board Members returned from Executive Session to hear the results of what had taken place, but were instead surprised when the board opted to adjourn the meeting. Officials remained tight-lipped, unable to discuss personnel matters with the public.

"I can't really say what we did in the meeting," said Jeff Meyers, School Board President. "We accomplished talking to the attorney and giving him the information we had. We went into executive session to discuss the investigation of charges or complaints against a public employee or official. We gave much information we received to that attorney that was in the meeting with us, and he's going to sort through it, process it, and get back with us very soon."

In the end, nothing was decided upon publicly. Several of the audience members that had waited out the entire process were vocal about the ordeal, with one parent loudly shouting, "You should be ashamed of yourselves!"

The Board of Education will hold their regular meeting next Wednesday evening at 6 PM.
