MILTON, Wis. (AP) -- The Milton school superintendent has resigned after an investigation into a Facebook photo he showed to two district staff members.

The school district released an investigative report and Superintendent Mike Garrow's response Friday.

According to the investigator, Garrow was talking with staff members in June when he brought up a photo on Facebook of a woman that staff members said made them uncomfortable.

The investigator concluded the photo was possibly inappropriate.

In his written response, Garrow said his decision to show the photo was "not a great choice" but said he didn't believe his conduct merited a full investigation.

Garrow has been on paid leave since October. His resignation takes effect June 30.

WISC-TV (http://bit.ly/Y2Pw3K ) reports the documents also say Garrow will receive a $35,000 severance payment by Jan. 1.
