Sparta Superintendent On Leave, Investigation Underway

The superintendent in Sparta schools is on leave after an outside investigation found complaints of threats, intimidation, and aggressive behavior.

Superintendent Amy Van Deuren says all of the teachers and school administrators who spoke to investigators told one side of the story, she’s denying all of the claims against her. Investigators say they spoke with more than a dozen Sparta teachers and staffers who said Van Deuren easily became angry, pounded on tables, pushed into people’s personal space, and even tried to break into a meeting where teachers were talking about her behaviors. Sparta’s school board is now looking to launch an investigation of its own.
