Charge dropped against ex-school administrator

MORRISON – A charge of violating an order of protection was dropped Tuesday against a former Dixon school administrator after he was found not guilty of disorderly conduct in an incident that originally sparked the order of protection to be filed.

Kye Gaffey, 41, of Sterling, was charged with disorderly conduct after his daughter’s mother, Nicole Dettman, said the two got into a quarrel at her home. She then filed the order of protection against Gaffey, which still is in effect.

In 2009, Gaffey was named athletic director at Dixon High School after serving as assistant principal for 4 years.

He was athletic director for a year before being hired as principal at Auburn High School in Rockford. Near the end of his first year, the school board voted to dismiss him, but wouldn’t say why. He was the fourth principal to serve within 2 school years.
