AUBURN, Neb. (AP) — A southeastern Nebraska school superintendent has been placed on paid leave following an incident involving video of a fight among students.
Superintendent Kevin Reiman was placed on leave Wednesday night after video posted on social media seemed to show him in his home viewing security footage of the fight in a school hallway. A voice believed to be Reiman’s on the online video narrates and laughs about the fight.
Some students, parents and teachers turned out Wednesday night at the school board meeting in a show of support for Reiman.
Omaha television station WOWT reports that Board President Ryan Jones said the board will not comment on the matter to the public or news organizations.
A phone message left Friday for Reiman with his secretary was not immediately returned.
