Fayetteville Superintendent Investigated For Alleged Sexual Misconduct & Threats

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- Board members with Fayetteville Public Schools have hired a Rogers lawyer to investigate Superintendent  Matthew Wendt about claims in which he allegedly made unwanted sexual advances and threats toward a woman.

The allegations regarding Wendt were reported to Attorney Susan Keller Kendall of Rogers to see if any wrongdoing has occurred.

Kendall confirmed she's investigating Wendt, but declined to further comment, as she said the investigation continues.

The woman bringing the accusations against Wendt has also hired a lawyer, according to a Fayetteville school board member. Her lawyer, Suzanne G. Clark of Fayetteville, claims her client experienced unwanted sexual conduct and threats by Wendt.

Although Wendt is being investigated, he continues to work as the superintendent, and is not on any type of leave status.

This is a developing story.
