WORTH CO., Ga. (WALB) - The Worth County Schools Superintendent Bill Settle has issued a statement following the decision made by the State Professional Standards Commission (PSC) determining there was "no probable cause on either count” of the ethics complaint filed by Harley Calhoun, the former Worth County High School principal.
Following the complaint, the PSC determined there was no need to go forward with the complaint based on its findings.
“It is regretful that some local news outlets made this whole situation into a big event that was nothing more than the school district and me as superintendent executing normal, everyday duties based on what was considered best for the district,” Settle’s said in his statement.
“In my tenure with Worth County Schools and for that matter, nearly 30 years of service in education, my reputation of being one of integrity, transparency, and directness in working with people remains true and intact,” Settle’s statement continues.
“Even more, I look forward to news outlets covering all the positive and great things going on in Worth County Schools on a daily basis, all year long,” Settle concluded.
