Van Buren school board accepts superintendent's resignation

VAN BUREN, MO (KFVS) - The second of two Heartland school superintendents caught up in a DUI investigation is out of a job.

The Van Buren School Board accepted Sonia Kuessner's resignation, retroactive to December 31, 2016.

After a records request and weeks of effort, we learned Scott County deputies arrested both Wood and Kuessner in fall 2016, but their cases were never sent to the prosecutor for a decision on formal charges.

No word yet from Scott County Sheriff Wes Drury about the status of what we believe is a still-open investigation.
