LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Greater Clark school board fires a teacher who faces drug-related charges.
The board voted Tuesday night to cancel the contract for Charlestown Middle School social studies teacher Kevin Hennegan. It earlier had refused to accept Hennegan's resignation, which he offered last week.
Police arrested Hennegan at school late last month and say they found marijuana and $13,000 in his desk.
He's charged with possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia, and with maintaining a common nuisance.
Hennegan is due in court later this month.
He had taught in the school corporation since 1990.
"I never like to be put in a position to have to recommend that a school employee's employment be terminated; but, in this situation, it was the right decision," superintendent Andrew Melin said in a news release.
