Painesville assistant principal violated policy on student contact

Painesville City Local Schools placed an assistant principal on administrative leave for violating policy on student contact.

Superintendent Michael Hanlon issued a statement regarding David Klingenberg, an assistant principal at the high school who is under police investigation and has been placed on administrative leave.

"We are investigating the matter further and also are cooperating with the police on their own investigation. The police investigation, which we learned about on Aug. 30, 2012, has been under way since May 2011," he said.

"At this time, I'm not at liberty to provide more information, but I want to stress again that nothing is more important than the safety and security of the students in our care. We will not tolerate behavior that jeopardizes the trust the community and our students place in us."
