Bibb County Superintendent Dr. Romain Dallemand is recommending Westside High School Principal Laura Perkins' contract with the school be terminated.
An ongoing investigation reveals Perkins misused school funds. Dallemand says because of "incompetency, willful neglect of duties, and other good and sufficient cause," Perkins' contract should end.
According to Dallemand, Perkins handled a 2010 $1.7 million grant inappropriately. 41 NBC obtained a copy of the letter sent from Dr. Dallemand to Perkins, which goes into detail about the misused Blending Learning Opportunities Grant funds.
Dallemand says because of the investigation the district has " lost confidence in [Perkins] ability to oversee Westside High School in a professional and ethical manner."·
A hearing is scheduled for September 8 at 9am at the Bibb County School's District's Administrative Offices.
Perkins in suspended with pay until then.
