Jefferson High Update

New information tonight on the Jefferson High School controversy in Rockford, according to the Rockford School Superintendent, the principal there, now on administrative leave does not have proper certification to even be a Principal. Dr. Kenneth Jackson is required by law to be certified and according to Linda Hernandez.

Jackson's temporary license expired August 27Th. This comes after Jackson was put on administrative leave earlier this week pending an investigation into allegations that he changed hundreds of grades so students wouldn't fail.

Hernandez says the grade changing is part of the reason for the suspension but she won't comment any further other than to say nothing criminal has happened.

Jackson tells 23 News he won't comment on the situation until he gets legal advice.
