The Minnesota Department of Human Rights has found probable cause that discrimination did occur in the Hibbing School District.

Last fall, we reported the department was investigating allegations of discrimination, but it was not made public who or what was under investigation.  

Now the commissioner of the Department of Human rights, Kevin Lindsey, said that the investigation is complete after more than 60 interviews were conducted. 

A 14-page memorandum was sent to the district outlining what the department says is the findings of probable cause of discrimination.

However, the department said they are now engaged in conciliation discussions with the district, and it would be inappropriate to comment any further.

On Wednesday, the Hibbing School Board voted to terminate an administrator based on the findings and conclusions of the investigation.

The resolution on the agenda said that the board believes that sufficient grounds exist under state law, requiring the immediate discharge and termination of the administrator. 

When contacted on Thursday, the employee referred us to his attorney. They did not return our call for comment.
