The Jamestown Post-Journal says the Jamestown School Board agreed to pay teacher Scott Lumia the equivalent of two month’s pay – totaling $15,160.46 – under the provisions of his separation agreement with the district.
The school board accepted Lumia’s resignation during a special meeting on Nov. 30.
Details of why Lumia resigned have not been released by the district, but WRFA has learned that he allegedly was involved in an inappropriate relationship with a student. The FBI is reportedly investigating a possible case, though officials with the agency could not confirm or deny an investigation when asked by the Post-Journal.
The severance pay was not made public by the school board and was only revealed to the public after the Post-Journal submitted a Freedom of Information request to the district.
Lumia was placed on administrative paid leave on Nov. 21, prior to his resignation.
