MIDDLEBURY — A Northridge High School teacher is no longer in the classroom, but the school corporation won't say why.

Kevin Pack was hired by Middlebury Community Schools in August 2013. He taught six different German classes, according to a faculty profile that's been taken down from the school corporation's website.

A school employee who answered the phone at Northridge on Monday, March 3, said Pack isn't working at the school anymore.

Superintendent Jane Allen told The Elkhart Truth on March 4 that she can't answer any questions about Pack because no official action has been taken by the board. 

According to state law, the school corporation is required to disclose some of Pack's personnel information. That includes any discipline that resulted in Pack being suspended, demoted or discharged.

Allen responded to a public records request filed by The Elkhart Truth on March 3 with a letter sent March 5. The letter gives the date that the corporation hired Pack but no end date to his employment there. 

It also does not include information about Pack being suspended, demoted, discharged or otherwise disciplined. 

If Pack has been disciplined by the school corporation, it's against the law for the corporation to withhold that information when asked.

Attempts to find contact information for Pack have been unsuccessful.

This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
