AD Placed on Paid Leave Over Missing $5,400 at Old Job

Ryan Rosnick, the Barnesville (Ohio) Exempted Village School District athletic director who failed to account for $5,400 in ticket receipts while employed as AD at a different school, has been placed on paid leave from his current position pending the results of an investigation.

Allegations became public last week that the Switzerland of Ohio Local School District has more than $5,400 from volleyball and basketball gate receipts missing. The money was found to be unaccounted for through a 2018 audit — a time Rosnick was the Monroe Central High School athletic director.

As reported by The Daily Jeff, once those allegations came to light, Barnesville district superintendent Angela Hannahs immediately launched an investigation into the Barnesville Athletic Department funds since Aug. 1, when Rosnick began his employment as athletic director of the Barnesville district. His paid leave took effect Jan. 16.

“We noticed some red flags when we conducted our own investigation, and we placed him on leave,” Hannahs said.

Hannahs, who will serve as acting athletic director at Barnesville, said she has no immediate timetable regarding how long the administrative leave or investigation may last.

“It takes a bit of time to go through everything,” Hannahs said.

Scott Baker, who was vice president of the school board, and board member Sam Lucas submitted their resignations on Jan. 15. Baker cited personal reasons for his decision to resign, and Lucas cited personal concerns. It is not clear if the resignations correlated directly with the revelations regarding Rosnick or the disciplinary actions taken against him.
