Tioga superintendent resigns after bringing gun to school

Email

TIOGA -- Tioga Superintendent D'Wayne Johnston has resigned after he brought a handgun to school out of concern for safety of students and staff.

Johnston said he received threats from a student who had demonstrated behavioral issues in the past, which led him to bring a concealed weapon to school Oct. 2.

"I didn't enter into that decision lightly," said Johnston, in his sixth year as superintendent and ninth year with the Tioga Public School District.
