Minutes: 

Mrs. Belford explained that the board had received information that a staff member had filed a sexual harassment complaint against Board member Andy Ziegler.  Staff reached out to an unbiased third party to perform the investigation.  The investigation concluded that they find insufficient evidence that Mr. Ziegler acted in a sexually harassing manner towards Ms. A or acted in derogation of any District policy or state or federal law.

She further commented that there was a recommendation by the investigation team that they "beef up" sexual harassment training for the Board, so that going forward they will be having a retreat where the Board will be having sexual harassment training to ensure they are all up to speed.  In addition, they will be strengthening policies and procedures to make sure they are setting high expectations for all employees, including the Board.  

Mr. Ziegler said he was relieved, but wanted to publicly apologize if he made anyone feel uncomfortable as that was never his intent.
