Herrin Elementary Principal Suspended
HERRIN -- The Herrin Elementary School principal has been placed on administrative leave.
Andy Shelby is off the job as the district investigates possible misconduct. No details have been released about what allegations he faces.
A hearing on whether to reinstate Shelby will take place in ten days.
OnFriday, the school board offered a candidate the job as interim principal for the rest of the school year. He turned it down. The Herrin superintendent says next Wednesday the school board will consider giving the interim position to retired principal Marie Campanella.
