The personnel issues in the Niles Community Schools continue. Our newsgathering partners at NewsCenter 16 WNDU are sourcing a letter from interim superintendent Dr. Michael Lindley to the school board calling for the firing of curriculum and instruction director Amy Scott. The letter was obtained through a Freedom Of Information Act request. It reveals Scott admitted to an "intimate personal relationship with a male coworker," and they would also have relations during school hours over the past several years. Lindley's letter states other employees knew it was going on, and it compromised Scott's ability to do her job. The other employee involved in the affair admitted the pair deleted videos, photos and text messages that would implicate them after they were told not to interfere, and they also would talk to get their story straight. Scott is married to a teacher in the district. She was suspended with pay earlier this month as the Michigan Tenure Commission looks into the complaints against her. Earlier problems in the district include the resignation of Superintendent Dr. Richard Weigel in March and the removal of a teacher for drinking at school.
