Contempt Hearing Set in in Durant Principal Case
DURANT, Iowa (AP) — A contempt hearing is set in Cedar County in a lawsuit filed by a principal reinstated to her job at Durant High School.
Monica Rouse claims the district has created a hostile work environment and failed to fully restore her as principal.
The Quad-City Times says Rouse and the school board will proceed with a hearing on Aug. 27 after settlement talks failed on Wednesday.
Rouse, who was fired in 2010, returned to work in April. According to the lawsuit, she has been directed not to interact with students or staff and has been denied an office with other administrators.
Rouse's attorney says she hopes a judge will impress on the district that it's treating Rouse wrong. The district's attorney says Rouse has her job and is being paid.
