Jackson County School System officials had no comment this week about a state investigation of the principal and assistant principal at East Jackson Comprehensive High School over allegations they falsified some student attendance records.
“We have conducted our own investigation into the circumstances, and the PSC (Georgia Professional Standards Commission) has also looked into the claims, and I don't think it's appropriate for me to comment until the results of that investigation are known,” said Superintendent Shannon Adams.
Principal Patricia Stueck and assistant principal Chanda Palmer are being investigated by the PSC after a teacher at EJCHS filed a formal complaint in April claiming the two falsified some student attendance records.
The teacher said students were being counted — and in some cases receiving credit for — classes they really didn’t attend. She also told the PSC that school administrators created fake rosters and schedules for a student and that she was required to give credit to a student who really didn’t attend her class.
The PSC voted on May 12 to investigate the allegations and notified school officials of that on May 18. The investigation is ongoing.
