Vineyard schools superintendent Dr. James H. Weiss said last week that longtime music teacher and Minnesingers director Daniel Murphy no longer works for the high school, although he declined to say whether Mr. Murphy had resigned or was terminated.
“Mr. Murphy no longer works for the school, that is all I can say,” Dr. Weiss told the Gazette yesterday.
Mr. Murphy has been the subject of an internal school investigation, as well as an investigation by the Edgartown police for possible criminal conduct. No details about either investigation have been released.
A spokesman for the Edgartown police department last week said the investigation into Mr. Murphy remains ongoing.
Mr. Murphy taught at the high school since 1996 and was also director of the Minnesingers choral group. He lives in Edgartown.
Mr. Weiss reported last month that Mr. Murphy had been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigations.
