Both Principals at Camdenton School on Leave
As the school year starts on Tuesday for students in the Camdenton R-3 school district, both principals at the Camdenton Middle School are on administrative leave. According to the minutes from the Board of Education’s closed session on Friday, it was announced that Assistant Principal Joel Carey is on administrative leave. No reason was given for this. He joins Principal Sean Kirksey who has been on administrative leave following an investigation about MAP testing irregularities this spring. Kirksey was supposed to have a hearing on Friday, but that was cancelled. Also during the closed session, an addendum was added to Dr. Paula Brown’s contract to serve as interim principal and to William Kurtz’s contract to be the assistant principal for the rest of August and also the month of September. The Board of Education will have another special meeting on Wednesday night at 6:00. The only item on the agenda is an executive session.
