Elementary School Principal Reassigned

The principal at Ridgeland Elementary School has been reassigned after a number of complaints. Naomi Reed was put on administrative leave two weeks ago while the Jasper County School Board investigated reports about the way the school was being run.

Superintendent Dr. Bill Singleton says he can't give details about why Reed was removed, but says she will work for the school board until the end of the year.

The deputy superintendent and assistant principal will run the school until a new principal is hired.
