Tuesday night during a special closed meeting, the Frazee-Vergas School Board could not reach a verdict on actions against teacher and coach John Barlund.


Barlund was placed on administrative leave Feb. 5 for allegations of employee misconduct.

“They explored lots of options. They looked around every tree,” Superintendent Terry Karger said Wednesday morning.

But no decisions were reached and Barlund remains on paid administrative leave.
