PARK RAPIDS - The Park Rapids School Board, without comment, voted to accept industrial education teacher Scott Eischens' resignation, "with thanks for his 12 years of service to the Park Rapids Area Schools" at Monday night's board meeting.

The wording indicated the motion was at Eischen's request.

Eischens allegedly brought a hunting rifle onto school property, which violates school policy.

The board held a closed meeting on the matter earlier this month but took no action at the time.

Eischens has been on paid administrative leave since the matter came to light about a month ago.

Hubbard County attorney Don Dearstyne said Tuesday that the matter remains under investigation for possible prosecution.
