ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. -

Charges against a Vermont school superintendent accused of failing to report abuse have been dismissed.

Caledonia Central School superintendent Martha Tucker was cleared by a judge Tuesday. She and Danville High School Principal Noah Noyes were charged last summer with failing to report a student's sex abuse complaint against a teacher.

Noyes denied any wrongdoing, but later accepted a plea deal that will lead to his record being expunged.

Tucker's lawyer says she's considering her legal options.
