The state education commissioner’s office called Beyer’s handover an indefinite dismissal. The department included the revocation notice in its May 31 update of recent disciplinary actions against state educators.
The revocation follows a complaint alleging that in the early to mid-1990s, Beyer “engaged in a personal, non-educational relationship with a student.”
“The defendant (Beyer), by signing this document, does not admit the allegation, but does not wish to dispute the allegation,” the filing reads.
Beyer did not return multiple calls and emails seeking comment.
From 1993 to 1997, Beyer was employed at Papillion La Vista Community Schools as a special education teacher, assistant soccer coach and head women’s soccer coach, according to his resume.
Annette Eyman, spokeswoman for Papillion La Vista, confirmed that Beyer was employed in the district during this period before resigning to take up a coaching position at the University of Nebraska at Kearney.
Eyman said the district didn’t know about the allegations until early this year. She said district officials cooperated with the Nebraska Professional Practices Commission, which enforces the standards for educators.
Eyman said the Papillion La Vista alum reported the allegations against Beyer to the commission, not the district, during the 2021-22 school year.
“No allegations were made during his time here,” Eyman said. “We didn’t even have to do an investigation in this particular situation, so we don’t even know much.”
Kelly Muthersbaugh, administrator of the commission, said Beyer’s case was a deal struck between Beyer and the education commissioner’s office.
David Jespersen, spokesman for the Department of Education, said the only public information about Beyer’s case is the document of his voluntary surrender.
“Anything else would only have come out if challenged,” he said in an email.
Millard officials were unaware of the allegations until recently, said district spokeswoman Rebecca Kleeman.
“The allegations do not relate to Mr. Beyer’s stay at Millard, and no allegations relating to students came to our attention during his time in the district,” she said.
Beyer worked as an assistant football coach at UNK from 1997 to 2000, according to his CV. After that, he served as vice principal and director of activities and athletics at Boys Town High School before coming to Millard.
UNK spokesman Todd Gottula said personnel records were confidential and he could not discuss Beyer’s employment. Kara Neuverth, a spokesperson for Boys Town, said she never received a report or allegation regarding Beyer.
