A lawsuit filed last month in Will County accuses Minooka Community High School Principal Darcie Kubinski of sharing student records online via iTunes.

The suit was filed against Kubinski and Minooka Community High School District 111 on behalf of parent Kelly Klepec, according to the Herald-News.

Klepec alleges that on Jan. 31, Kubinski posted a recording from a closed-session board of education meeting where her child's discipline records were being discussed following a 2012 bullying incident at the school, the newspaper reported.

Kubinski is accused of engaging in conduct intended to cause damage and emotional distress against Klepec, as well as abusing her position in an attempt to intimidate her.

The lawsuit also alleges that in October 2012, Kubinski caused a student's records to be shared with a third party who was not a teacher at either high school in the district. The records reportedly revealed the identities of students named in a bullying incident at the district's South campus.

District 111 Superintendent James Colyott denied any wrongdoing by Kubinski, according to the Herald News.

Your username was only an issue to me because you stand behind anonymity while calling out someone's credibility who has made themselves publicly known. That is wrong and cowardly to me. As far as this case goes, what improper behavior are you referring to? If it's as simple and black and white as you seem to clearly know, it should be over quickly so don't worry so much.

The best thing that ever happen to Plainfield School dist 202 was when Darcie Kubinski left!!!. I am sure by now Minooka is realizing that they made one big mistake by hiring this head case.

I don't know who TB Plfd is, but I can guarantee he/she represents a small minority. Kubinski did so many wonderful things for our community during her long time here, it sounds like you are probably a disgruntled person who was held accountable at some point.

El Lee fyi I went to UCF with her she married one of my football team mates, I partied with her many times in the early morning hours when she had to be a Plainfield South in a few hours for work. Her parents always bailed her out of trouble in her life its about time she is held accountable for her actions!
