Superintendent Resigns

ACKLEY, Iowa (AP) - A north-central Iowa school superintendent who's the subject of a criminal investigation has resigned his post.

Fifty-one-year-old Robert Weber quit on Monday without explanation. He'd been on leave from his job leading the Ackley-Geneva-Wellsburg-Steamboat Rock public school district.

Hardin County Sheriff Dave McDaniel has not commented publicly on the nature of the investigation. But he's said he doesn't think children were endangered by Weber.

Investigators have searched Weber's office at the district elementary school in Ackley and a home in neighboring Franklin County, where Weber's address is listed.

Weber had been superintendent of the district since 2008.
