Riverside school superintendent resigns


Dr. Richard Odegaard resigned Thursday night after just six months as the superintendent of Riverside Christian Schools.

Parents in the district went public with their concerns over a scandal in Odegaard's past, saying the school board had refused to meet with them. They say they learned through a private investigator that Odegaard had admitted to an act of sexual misconduct with a student 34 years ago.

In 2006, Odegaard resigned from another school over similar allegations, which investigators determined to be unfounded.
