FORSYTH -- The Monroe County school board voted Saturday morning to accept an agreement to buy out the contract of superintendent Anthony Pack.

No terms were discussed, but the agreement is effectively immediately.

Pack, who served as superintendent for seven years, has been on medical leave for more than two months.

Pack was under investigation after the school board received allegations that he participated in "an online site geared toward male relationships."

Pack had to surrender his work computer, phone and tablet to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office for examination.

Pack announced in a statement that he was gay, but he also claimed no wrong doing.

"I have fully complied with the Board's requests that these pieces of technology be thoroughly analyzed and look forward to a report from the Sheriff's Department that my private life is indeed my private life, and not a public spectacle nor an abuse of public equipment or services."
