Investigative report into TCAPS executive team released

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) -- The investigation report into Traverse City Area Public Schools superintendent Paul Soma and his executive team has been released.

The independent investigation started in the fall after claims of harassment and intimidation by the Traverse City Administrators Association, which represents TCAPS principals.

The report focused on three complaints, and concludes there isn't enough evidence to back up the allegations against Soma and the executive team.

After receiving the report, the board of education cleared Soma of any wrongdoing.

“As hard as it might be able to see that right now, relationships can get stronger when you go through something like this,” said TCAPS Superintendent Paul Soma. “So I have always had an optimistic outlook, that's in my nature, and I will continue to do that and hopefully that's the vision that comes true.”

Soma says he is looking forward to getting their focus 100 percent back on the students.

There were several other complaints in the investigation that weren't included in the final report, so it's up to the board of education how and if they move forward in handling those.
