San Benito CISD Superintendent of Schools Antonio G. Limón is pictured at the SBCISD John F. Barron Administration Building on Monday after he was reinstated following a year-long suspension and investigation.

In the course of a few days, much of what remained in question for more than a year’s time regarding the suspension and investigation into San Benito CISD Superintendent of Schools Antonio G. Limón reached closure.

SBCISD Board President Arnold Padilla confirmed Tuesday that Limón’s investigation is officially closed – news which came a day after the Board of Trustees approved Limón’s reinstatement after two hours of consideration in closed session on Monday, May 26.

When asked about the findings of the probe, Padilla said, “On the investigation, I won’t be able to comment. All I can say is the investigation is completed and sealed. It is a part of the evaluating factors and consideration of Mr. Limón. That pretty much completes the process.”

SBCISD Community Relations Director Celia Longoria, however, indicated in a school district news release issued on Tuesday that the investigation did not adversely implicate Limón in its findings.
