GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Gadsden County School Board Superintendent Roger Milton stated that the results from FDLE test were negative for a controlled substance.

Rashid Ormsby will receive no disciplinary action by the school board and continue to teach.


New details are being revealed about the Gadsden County teacher being investigated for drugs, as he continues to teach classes.

Rashid Ormsby is back in the classroom, relocated from West Gadsden High School to here to East Gadsden High School. He's been allowed to remain teaching for now because even though he was tested for drugs the results have to to be determined.

We spoke to Gadsden County Assistant Superintendent Dr. Pink Hightower, who confirmed Ormsby is still working for the Gadsden County school district

On March 21st, when Ormsby was taken by the school resource officer to "Patients First" because he suspected Orsmby was on something. However Doctor Hightower says, there was no positive drug test from that visit.

Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating a bag of white powder found in Ormsby's belongings and those results are not in.

We tried to contact Ormsby himself but he didn't respond and and school officials refused to go on camera.

But in the meantime, this remains an active investigation and Ormbsy holds onto his job with the county.
