Former Champaign superintendent faces sexual harassment lawsuit


EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (WCIA) — A former Champaign School District superintendent is accused of sexual harassment in a federal lawsuit.

Arthur Culver was superintendent in Champaign from 2002 to 2011. He led the district through the consent decree — when a federal judge ruled the district had to create racial equity in education.

Culver is now superintendent in East St. Louis. A former employee there filed a lawsuit against Culver. She claims he showed her a pornographic video, fist bumped her thigh and made other “unwelcome advances.” She says her job was eliminated after she reported him.

WCIA emailed Arthur Culver for comment.
