Seneca begins search for new school superintendent

Updated June 6, 2014 -Seneca School Board accepts resignation of superintendent

The Seneca, Missouri School District is now searching for a new superintendent.  The school board president tells us on Thursday night the board accepted Dr. Steve Wilmoth's official resignation.

Prior to his resignation, Dr. Wilmoth had been placed on suspension, for an ethics violation.  School officials say in 2011 Wilmoth guided the board toward hiring Ombudsman ESA to provide the district's alternative education services, but never disclosed to his bosses that he was taking money from the company.

He was fined more than $8,000 for the violation.

The school board says it is now accepting applications to fill the superintendent position.



Posted February 22, 2014 - Seneca School Superintendent Fined for Ethics Violation

A Four State school superintendent faces a fine from the Missouri Ethics Commission.

The commission cites Seneca School Superintendent Dr. Steve Wilmoth in a conflict of interest case.

Wilmoth was working as a paid educational consultant for Ombudsman ESA at the same time he served as superintendent.

ESA creates alternative school programs and Wilmoth signed contracts with the company to operate in the Seneca District.

Wilmoth was fined $55,000 by the commission, equal to his ESA earnings.  But if he pays $8,250 the rest will be stayed.
