(Farmington Daily Times) - The principal of Tsé Bit’a’í Middle School in Shiprock has been placed on paid administrative leave.
Central Consolidated School District spokesman James Preminger confirmed that J. Kaibah Begay was placed on administrative leave Wednesday.
She was placed on leave after the administration was notified that the school displayed a poster this week that listed more than 100 students who allegedly would not be promoted to the next grade level, Preminger said.
Preminger said the poster was put up at approximately 12:30 p.m. Monday in a hallway near the school’s entrance. The administration was notified about the poster on Tuesday afternoon, and it was removed at approximately 2:30 p.m., he said.
"The school told the administration. Once they told us, we had the poster taken down immediately," Preminger said.
Preminger said Bowman apologized to students on Thursday and to parents during the school board's work session that evening.
"The superintendent wants to build students' self-esteem, confidence and identity and have it be part of the learning environment," Preminger said. "We apologize to all students and parents that this happened."
