SPRING HILL -

The school district's new transportation director will stay employed — for now — following his arrest on fraud charges last week.

However, Superintendent Bryan Blavatt said that could change if he is found guilty.

Following the arrest last week of transportation director Douglas Compton, 43, on felony identification theft charges, Blavatt said he and other officials debated whether Compton should stay on or be placed on leave.

On Monday, Blavatt said Compton would be directed to not to have contact with students.

Had Compton been accused of a weapons offense, violent crime or of criminal activity involving children, the result would have been different, Blavatt said.
