Report: Inappropriate relationships distracted Fox from job

Jessica Cuffman • Mar 19, 2013 at 12:01 PM

(UPDATED WITH FULL REPORT at 2:58 p.m.) The Huron school board has released a law firm's 50-page report on allegations against superintendent Fred Fox, who the board suspended Tuesday without pay.

The much-awaited investigative report says Fox should be fired as result of his alleged misdeeds, including his improper business relationship with Kalahari Resorts CEO Todd Nelson. While Kalahari provided Fox with free golf, discount rooms and other perks, the school district gave Kalahari tax abatements that were more favorable than abatements offered to other companies, the report stated.

The report also said Fox's alleged affair with a Fremont Schools administrator has interfered with his ability to lead the school district. The law firm interviewed about 20 upper-level district employees to compile the report.  

For more on the report's findings, pick up Thursday's Register. For an in-depth look at the Kalahari tax abatement under scrutiny and the cost of the investigation check out Friday's Register.

The full report and supplemental documents are posted below.

A statement issued Thursday afternoon by representatives of Todd Nelson has also been posted.
