State agency investigating Dallemand complaint

A state agency is investigating the Bibb County School District's complaint against its former superintendent.

The district filed the complaint against Romain Dallemand in May, according to John Grant, chief investigator of the Professional Standards Commission.

The agency investigates possible misconduct by teachers and administrators and has the power to revoke their licenses as educators.

The district also asked the PSC to investigate its former technology director, Tom Tourand, according to Grant.

Grant would not disclose the complaints against the pair, and we could not reach Bibb school officials for comment.

But in March, an audit said Dallemand committed the district to millions of dollars in spending without school-board approval. That included software later found to be incompatible with the district's computers.

Grant would not comment further on the complaint but said it could come before the state board at its scheduled Sept. 11 meeting. If the board decides there is no probable cause for further action, he said, the case file would be expunged.

The Bibb County school board also asked Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens to investigate whether any crime was committed; Olens' office has declined comment.

Dallemand is reportedly now living in Haiti and attorneys involved in an unrelated lawsuit say they've been unable to reach him.
