Acting Principal to be Named

The acting principal appointed to West End Elementary School will be introduced to parents next week.

The announcement will be at a meeting of the West End PTA at 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11 in the school cafeteria.

In mid-January, principal Judy Ratcliff was placed on administrative leave, pending the outcome of an investigation by the state auditor's office, involving alleged spending irregularities.

Ratcliff remains on leave, pending a decision by the Meridian School Board.
