GLENWOOD, Iowa (AP) - The principal of Glenwood Community High School in western Iowa says she's been wrongly accused and intends to fight for her job.
The school board voted Tuesday to begin the process of firing Kerry Newman, who's been on paid administrative leave since Jan. 18.
The board cited four reasons: an inappropriate relationship with a district employee, poor judgment, inappropriate use of resources and being an ineffective role model.
District officials have not elaborated on the allegations. Newman says the allegations are false.
Newman has been principal at the school since 2007.
