An anonymous letter sparked a rumor Tuesday that Harrisonville Superintendent Frank Dahman resigned. The rumor is false, the school district said.
Harrisonville Board of Education President R.J. Knox issued a statement debunking the rumor.
“Mr. Frank Dahman has not submitted his resignation and remains in his post as superintendent of Harrisonville schools,” Knox wrote.
The rumor began when a fabricated letter purportedly from Knox was received by a media outlet. The letter stated Dahman was resigning.

“I neither drafted nor signed such a communication,” Knox wrote, “and to the extent such a communication is circulating, it is a fabrication and false.”
Frank Dahman’s son, Joe Dahman, resigned Sept. 6 following the revelation that he is the subject of an investigation by Harrisonville police for inappropriate contact with a student.
Joe Dahman has not been charged with any crimes at this time.
