Iowa School District Official Accused Of Falsifying Bus Records


By Richard Pratt

HOLSTEIN, Iowa (AP) — A former school district official has been accused of falsifying safety inspection records on school buses for a northwest Iowa district.

Court records say 51-year-old Douglas Wessling, of Holstein, faces three counts of tampering with records. He's scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 6.

He was put on leave and then lost his job as transportation director for the Galva-Holstein Community School District after an investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.

Superintendent Dave Kwikkel says three district buses were taken out of service because of damage. Kwikkel says Wessling put one of them back into use before it had been repaired.

Wessling has not returned calls seeking comment. His attorney didn't immediately return a call Tuesday from The Associated Press.
