ALBANY, Ga. — In another sign that the Dougherty County School system is serious about cracking down on policy violations, Interim Superintendent Butch Mosely last week suspended a Monroe High School assistant principal for violations of testing policy protocols.
Willie Presley was suspended for five days without pay and will be relocated to another site/location for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year, which ends May 6.
The Albany Herald obtained a copy of Presley's suspension notification. In it, Mosely wrote: "On April 12, 2013 your principal, Dr. Valerie Thomas, informed me you had not followed the strict district guidelines for test administration of the SLO (Student Learning Objectives) and that you were warned about such actions on two previous occasions. Because of your inappropriate actions, you will be suspended without pay for five days."
Presley's suspension came just before South Georgia Regional Achievement Center Principal John I. Davis was suspended Monday for not following board policy by failing to request a background check on a school volunteer who was later arrested on child molestation charges involving a 14-year-old female SGRAC student.
"It is the expectation of the Board of Education and the Superintendent that every employee upholds the highest level of professionalism," Mosely wrote to Presley. "If there are any incidents in the future you will face serious consequences and possible termination. I trust there will be no further problems."
