The Vigo County School Corporation says it has launched an investigation after bribery charges were filed against former superintendent Danny Tanoos.

While Tanoos retired earlier this year, he was still serving as head of school security and safety. He has been placed on paid administrative leave.

A statement released Tuesday afternoon reads

Yesterday, the Vigo County School Corporation was informed of criminal charges filed by the Marion County Prosecutor against a VCSC employee. Today we have started an investigation, with the assistance of our legal counsel, which will include conducting interviews and following the due process requirements mandated by law. Along with the investigation, VCSC has launched a comprehensive review of School Board policy and administrative guidelines. A major focus of the review will be vendor relationships, purchasing procedures, and overall school finance.

The Vigo County School Board also met in an executive session Tuesday morning.
