Reasons for East Franklin principal’s suspension still unclear

With the reasons for his January suspension still unclear, East Franklin Elementary principal, Terry Bradley, resigned at the end of the 90 day investigation period. At a faculty meeting of East Franklin teachers last week, Superintendent Dan Brigman announced that he had received a letter of resignation from Bradley the previous Friday on April 29.

The resignation will be brought before the school board for approval at its next regular meeting, said Brigman on Monday, adding that he could not comment on the issues surrounding Bradley's suspension or the reasons given for his resignation. In line with public employee records statute, the letter of resignation will not be made part of Bradley's publicly available employee records.
