Jefferson High School Principal Suspended

The Principal at Jefferson High School tells us he's being suspended starting today, Dr. Kenneth Jackson won't return to work until an investigation is complete into grade changes he authorized last year.

He gave several students D's instead of F's because he said their parents had not been properly notified their kids were failing.

Former Superintendent Dennis Thompson supported Jackson's decision but interim Superintendent Linda Hernandez has some concerns.

    Do you know what has happened at Jefferson High today? Linda H. has made a decision she has a problem with Dr. Jackson, but she should have addressed it with Mr. Thompson before he left. Now, she wants to blame Dr. Jackson when he had permission to change the grades. Today, there are children getting hurt and where is she? Let see if she shows her face or have a comment on the mess she caused today.
