TREYNOR, Iowa (AP) - A schools superintendent has appealed the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners’ decision to suspend his state license for 30 days.

The attorney for Kevin Elwood told The Daily Nonpareil (http://bit.ly/1h9Kqiu ) that the appeal was filed Wednesday in Polk County District Court and that Elwood may continue in his Treynor district post during the appeal process.

On Aug. 7 the board suspended Elwood’s license, saying he should not have let his son work unsupervised as a custodian for the district after the son was accused of inappropriate sexual conduct. Elwood was accused of two violations of Iowa code, including failing to make reasonable efforts to protect the health and safety of students.

In September 2013 Elwood’s son, Kreighton Elwood, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault and one of false imprisonment.
