(Poughkeepsie, NY) -- The principal of Poughkeepsie High School is on administrative leave.
The "Poughkeepsie Journal" reports the school board voted last night to file disciplinary charges against Phee Simpson and suspend her with pay through the rest of the school year. Board President Felicia Watson tells the Journal that Dean of Students Ronald Jackson will fill in for Simpson. The school board is not releasing further details on why Simpson is being placed on leave. However, a recent probe revealed that more than 40 students graduated under what investigators call "questionable circumstances" last year.
