In The Region:

The Steubenville school board has suspended its superintendent, a principal and a coach after they were changed with roles in the alleged cover-up of a rape by two high school football players. WKSU’s M.L. Schultze has more on the next step in a case that’s drawn national attention.

The board met in an emergency session Monday, just a few hours after Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine revealed the indictments by a special grand jury against Superintendent Michael McVey and others.

McVey is facing felony charges of obstruction of justice and tampering with evidence. And prosecutors say some of that is tied to a separate assault that allegedly occurred four months before August 2012 incident that drew national attention to the town.

McVey has been with the district for 16 years, starting as an assistant high school principal. He was appointed superintendent five years ago after Richard Ranallo retired. Now the board is bringing Ranallo back as an interim, while the criminal case plays out.

Like McVey,  elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman and strength coach and special education teacher Seth Fluharty have been suspended  with pay. They each face misdemeanor charges that they failed to report suspected child abuse.  A volunteer coach accused on allowing underage drinking during the August 2012 party is no longer affiliated with Steubenville.
