The board filed tenure charges against Markiewicz, but voted to accept a settlement on Sept. 17. The report notes terms of the settlement include a statement acknowledging the agreement doesn't establish wrongful or improper conduct.
"The parties mutually acknowledge that this matter has been litigated and resolved in good faith, and that this agreement is entered into solely for the purpose of avoiding the time and expense attendant to any further litigation," NJ.com reported the settlement states.
However, the settlement also notes the matter can still be referred to the board of examiners, which can suspend or revoke Markiewicz' teaching certificate.
Markiewicz is a conductor with the Raritan Valley Symphonic Band and the Somerset Valley Orchestra, according to the organizations' websites. He is also listed as the Co-Caption Supervisor of the Cadets2 drum corps and musical director and conductor of Imperial Brass, a Rutgers alumni brass group.
