Flashing-accused superintendent resigns from Rocori School District

He has been accused of exposure on as many as 16 occasions.

The superintendent who is accused of exposing himself to store workers, on potentially more than a dozen occasions, has resigned.

The Rocori School District board accepted Scott Staska's resignation last week, the St. Cloud Times reports.

On Wednesday, the school board appointed the retired former Roseville superintendent John Thein as the acting superintendent until a permanent replacement can be found.

Staska, 56, is under investigation by police after being arrested for allegedly exposing himself to employees at a Kwik Trip gas station in Waite Park.

Subsequent investigations have linked him to as many as 15 other exposures at gas stations in Waite Park and St. Cloud dating back to November.

He also allegedly exposed himself at a Rue 21 and a Lids store inside the Crossroads Mall.

He has been the superintendent of Rocori Schools District, covering Cold Spring, Rockville and Richmond, since 2002 and was in the running to take over Moorhead Schools District prior to his arrest.
