Posted: Updated:

The Cherokee County Board of Education in North Carolina has suspended school Superintendent Stephen Lane.

The Board did not release the reason why Lane was suspended only stating, "The Board has voted to suspend Dr. Lane with pay pursuant to his contract pending an immediate investigation by our attorney. Personnel matters are confidential by law. Therefore, the Board cannot discuss this matter further at this time. Until the investigation is complete, the Board will have no further comment.

In order to ensure that Dr. Lane's due process rights are protected, our attorney has advised us that the Board may not entertain public comment regarding this matter at Thursday night's Board meeting. The Board appreciates everyone's patience during this time."
