The former principal of Shaker Heights High School, who resigned amid a veil of secrecy earlier this year, was accused by his staff of creating a “toxic” atmosphere, smelling at times of alcohol and making racial, sexual and other inappropriate comments.

The details leading to the resignation of Jonathan Kuehnle were revealed in a series of documents released to Channel 3 News through a public records request filed with the district.

Kuehnle resigned his position in a written agreement with the district dated Jan. 9, about two months after the district, with little comment to parents or students, placed him on administrative leave.

His resignation officially takes effect June 30. He now works remotely for the district, performing data entry duties related to special education students.

A district spokesman said no one would comment on Kuehnle’s departure.

The move allows Kuehnle to leave the district without any disciplinary action being taken. The district also agrees not to appeal his efforts to collect unemployment benefits, should he choose to apply, the agreement shows.

Both sides agree not to file lawsuits stemming from Kuehnle’s leave and pending departure.
