The Sarasota County School District is investigating after a series of complaints were filed against the COO and assistant superintendent, Jeff Maultsby.

Similar complaints were filed over the handling of that complaint by Superintendent Todd Bowden and the district’s human resources department.

An outside firm will be retained to investigate the oral complaint.

Maultsby is fairly new to the district, having come in last year after working as the county’s business and economic development director.
