In a telephone conversation, City Manager Darlene Burcham said the offer has not been put in writing yet, and has not been signed... but she confirmed that if Lewis is willing to suspend his grievances, he can take a temporary assignment at Patrick Henry.
Lewis got into trouble after sharing concerns about school safety with a newspaper reporter. He's been fighting for his position at Patrick Henry since June when he was transferred to patrol duty.
Once the task force completes its work, and changes in the School Resource Officer Program are implemented, presumably by the first of next year, Lewis would have the opportunity to renew his grievances against the city, if he chooses.))

The Roanoke County school board approved a compromise plan to light the soccerfield at Hidden Valley High School.
