Tekonsha Superintendent Not Facing Charges For Alleged Sexual Misconduct
The superintendent of a Calhoun County school district has been cleared of wrongdoing over allegations of sexual misconduct.
The Battle Creek Enquirer says that Jeffrey Kawaski, superintendent of the Tekonsha Community Schools, had been placed on leave after Tekonsha Elementary School Principal Jennifer McGuff accused him of making sexual advances towards her in his apartment. McGuff had been placed on administrative leave for alleged workplace misconduct in April, and in June she went to the police department in Marshall claiming that Kawaski had harassed her.
What misconduct McGuff allegedly took part in was not specified.
This week, the Calhoun County Prosecutor’s Office said they would not be pressing charges against Superintendent Kawaski for Fourth-degree Criminal Sexual Conduct. The school board had hired a private investigator to look into the allegations against both Kawaski and McGuff, and Kawaski had taken a polygraph test and shared the results with both the board and the police department.
Kawaski has been restored to his position in the district, while McGuff remains on leave.
