  • UPDATE: OEA to investigate Fairview

    State education investigators were scheduled to arrive in the Fairview school district this morning to interview school officials.
    Superintendent Bill Musick on Wednesday confirmed that two teams of investigators from the state Office of Educational Accountability will interview him and other officials.
    Others to be interviewed include school board members, council members of Fairview High and Fairview Middle schools, finance director Ernie Sharp and pupil personnel director Brant Creech.
    Interviews will be conducted at the high school and the middle school.
    The nature of the inquiry is unclear, because the OEA doesn’t release information on its investigations other than final reports.
    Musick said the OEA hadn’t told him what the investigation is about. “I don’t know a single question they’re going to ask,” he said. He said such visits are “not unusual.”
    Other sources say complaints have been lodged with the OEA about a number of irregularities, and that the OEA will examine Musick’s status and whether the board acted illegally in February when it rescinded its acceptance of his resignation.
    Musick had announced his retirement and tendered his resignation in the wake of a separate investigation by the Kentucky High School Athletic Association that penalized the district for using an ineligible player in 2012 and 2013.
    Musick said then that he was ready for retirement but later said he had had a change of heart and asked the board to reconsider his resignation.
    The Kentucky Department of Education’s legal department said the rehiring was illegal but the finding doesn’t have any enforcement power and the school board has not taken any further action.
