District to pay $75K after misconduct allegation

A Flint-area school district has agreed to pay $75,000 in exchange for a former adult education student's promise not to sue over allegations of misconduct by a former school administrator.

The Flint Journal reported details of the agreement involving the Beecher Community School District following a Freedom of Information Act request. The agreement was made in August with a 21-year-old former student in the district's adult education center.

The student says he was sexually harassed after he began testing for his GED in 2012.

Superintendent Josha L. Talison says the administrator is no longer employed by the school after his contract wasn't renewed in June.

The payout comes as the district works to cut $500,000 from its budget over the next two years because of an ongoing budget deficit.
