Case closed, no sanctions.

That’s the action being taken by the Illinois State Board of Education after a misconduct investigation was opened up against Regan Ruyle, a counselor for the Regional Safe Schools program in White Hall, administered by the Regional Office of Education for Calhoun, Greene, Jersey and Macoupin Counties.

ISBE spokeswoman Amanda Simhauser provided those details to WLDS-WEAI News in an email Thursday after we went checked with the state several times since the investigation was first reported in March.      The ISBE investigation was apparently opened up on February 3rd. Simhauser wouldn’t go into more detail.

Larry Pfeiffer, the superintendent of the Regional Office of Education 40th District at the time of the investigation, has since retired. We reached out on Friday to assistant regional superintendent Chad Hoesman. He says Ruyle is still employed in her counselor position. Hoesman had no further comment on the matter.
