What that means: the district chose to sign a resolution agreement (settlement) instead of having an investigation completed. Because Joshua Powell knew he was caught. Otherwise, he wouldn’t agree to settle. (No, settling didn’t save the district any money)

A fun note: Shortly after our Title IX story, the Mt. Sterling Advocate sent an email to had coaches at the high school asking if they used the field house weight room – along with why/why not. You can assume that fishing expedition didn’t get very far. Whitewashing and excusing problem after problem for Powell hasn’t served its readership or its community. Here’s hoping they get back to serving as an outlet that always questions authority and always serves the public.
