Tuxedo school superintendent resigns due to pornography scandal
The Orange County school
superintendent at the center of a pornography scandal has resigned.
In a statement,
the Tuxedo Union Free School District Board of Education says it has “finalized
a separation agreement with, and accepted the resignation of, Timothy Bohlke.”
Bohlke is accused of looking
at and commenting on a pornographic video from his work Twitter account last
month, after his district handle and profile photo were seen with a remark
under the comments.
Officials say the resignation
is effective immediately, and Nicole Scariano
has been named interim superintendent of schools and
high school principal.
The board says it will soon be launching a search for a new superintendent of schools.
News 12 reached out to Bohlke
multiple times for comment, but he has not returned calls.
