TCAPS Board To Review Investigation Report On Soma

By Beth Milligan | June 11, 2018

Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) board members have received a report from Rehmann Corporate Investigative Services containing the firm’s findings regarding an investigation into Superintendent Paul Soma.

Soma was under investigation for, among other complaints, allegations he bullied and intimidated female principals. Such behavior could constitute a violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the federal law prohibiting employers from discriminating against employees based on gender, among other factors. Board members authorized a contract with Rehmann in March to investigate the claims.

Board members are scheduled to discuss the confidential report at their 6pm board meeting tonight (Monday), most likely in closed session, at the TCAPS Administration Building. If board members take any action regarding the report - including choosing to make it public - they would come out of closed session to do so publicly.
