TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - Staffers at a western Indiana school corporation where the FBI raided three properties returned to work Thursday preparing for summer and fall activities, its superintendent said.

All Vigo County School Corp. administrators were back to work one day after the FBI raided its administrative offices, transportation center and information technology center, Superintendent Danny Tanoos said.

“Summer school is already started. It is business as usual,” Tanoos told the Tribune-Star (http://bit.ly/1TXTsLQ ). “I am back to work today doing my job and what I need to do to ensure that we move school system forward through the summer and continue to do my job.”

“We are fully cooperating with the FBI and will cooperate with them until their investigation is complete. That is really all we know at this time is that they are doing an investigation and don’t know any particulars,” he said.

FBI spokeswoman Cathy Burton confirmed the agency was conducting an investigation in the Terre Haute area but said she could not disclose any other details.

Tim Horty, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office in Indianapolis, said he could not release details of the FBI investigation or if there is any timeline for completing the investigation.

“We will determine what we may or may not find and make (criminal) charging decisions after that,” Horty said.

At least a dozen FBI agents entered the administrative offices about 9:20 a.m. Wednesday, sending school corporation employees out of the building. Employees were turned away at the district’s transportation center, where FBI personnel were seen looking at a school bus and later removing more than 40 boxes and computer towers, WTHI-TV reported.
