The superintendent of Norwood City School District abruptly resigned Tuesday amid investigation by the state auditor, school officials confirmed.

Rob Amodio's resignation is effective Aug. 11.

“He is not returning to the office,” said Norwood Board of Education President Sarah Horsely.

Amodio could not be immediately reached for comment.

The school board appointed Kathy Sabo the acting superintendent, effective immediately, Horsely said.

Circumstances surrounding Amodio's resignation were not immediately clear, and district officials were tight-lipped Tuesday night.

But sources familiar with the situation tell FOX19 NOW it has to do with a state audit.

Sources say Amodio had questionable money transfers between the school’s accounts and his own.

State investigators allegedly caught it in an audit.

A source says there have been questionable hirings including Amodio’s wife, who earns more than $90,000.

Horsely declined to discuss specific reasons for Amodio's sudden departure, but she did confirm it was related to a state audit.

"That is all under investigation by the Ohio Auditor," she said. "Any questions should be directed to them."
