TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A school board in Ohio is moving its meetings because one of its new members is banned from going onto the district’s property.
Board members in Toledo’s Washington Local district decided Wednesday not to lift the ban against former superintendent Patrick Hickey.
Hickey was elected to the board in November. He had resigned as superintendent in 2015 before the school board could consider a resolution to fire him. He later was banned after an altercation at the school.
The district had been investigating Hickey’s failure to tell school leaders he’d been accused of inappropriate relationships with students in Michigan decades ago.

Hickey declined to comment.
