SHENANDOAH, Iowa (AP) - A former Shenandoah school superintendent says health issues led him to end his fight to keep his job.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (https://bit.ly/1xJJ5DU ) that after Jeff Hiser withdrew his request for a hearing, the school board on Tuesday carried through on its intention to terminate Hiser’s contract.

Hiser said through his attorney that the withdrawal shouldn’t be viewed as agreement with district allegations of fraud, policy violations and a cover-up of misdeeds. Hiser’s attorney cited Hiser’s ongoing medical issues in a filing to the district.

The school board voted in November to consider terminating Hiser’s contract. An attorney for the district says Hiser had tenure so the board couldn’t fire him without going through an appeal process.
