Perryton ISD Board to Name Replacement For Superintendent

Members of the Perryton ISD Board of Trustees are set to name a replacement for the district's superintendent following allegations of sexual harassment.

It was reported this week that superintendent Robert Hall and assistant superintendent Keith Langfitt took leaves on Tuesday following allegations of sexual harassment. The leaves came prior to Perryton ISD's Board of Trustees' special meeting to discuss the personnel matters related to the events.

Board president Monty Kinnard said on KXDJ radio this morning that the board is planning to name an interim replacement for the superintendent role to continue day-to-day operations in the school district.

Members of the Perryton ISD board will meet on Saturday at 9am to discuss a replacement for the position.

The leaves come following the announcement last week that sexual harassment claims had been made against two district administrators. According to a statement released by Kinnard, the district in the process of going through the information and has retained the services of a private investigator to come to a conclusion on the allegations.

"The District has also implemented interim action calculated to prevent prohibited conduct during the course of the investigation.," Kinnard said in the statement. "Following the conclusion of the investigation, the Board will determine what action, if any, is appropriate."
