WAUKEE, Iowa (AP) - Police say two students have been charged with extorting $1,350 from an assistant principal at Waukee High School who has resigned.

Police say 40-year-old Josh Smith on Wednesday reported the students’ attempts. Police have not released the 17-year-olds’ names. Waukee Police Sgt. Jeremy Long declined to say Monday whether the money had exchanged hands. A public phone listing for Smith couldn’t be found Monday.

Waukee school district officials reported Friday that Smith resigned following an internal investigation. A district spokeswoman wouldn’t say whether Smith was asked to quit or how long the investigation had been underway. He’d worked for the district since 2015

A posting on the district’s Facebook page says the district can’t publicly share details about personnel disciplinary action, because the information is confidential.
