Ohio schools superintendent given farewell party



Published: Thu, August 9, 2012 @ 1:41 p.m.

COLUMBUS (AP) — About two dozen state employees have said their goodbyes to Ohio’s public schools superintendent who announced his resignation Saturday amid ethical questions.

A spokesman for the Ohio Department of Education says a small retirement reception for Stan Heffner was thrown at the end of Wednesday’s workday and no work time was lost.

A report last week by the state’s inspector general found Heffner was on the payroll of a Texas-based testing firm when he lobbied state lawmakers last year on a bill that benefited the company. The report also found Heffner misused his state email, cellphone and staff to pursue the testing job.

Heffner joined the education department in 2004. His resignation takes effect Friday.

The state school board, which hires and fires the superintendent, plans to meet Aug. 20.
