Newton - - The principal at Baker County Elementary/Middle School is being fired and parents and students want to know why.
Joseph Davis took on the role as principal at the school at the beginning of the school year. His contract is not being renewed, but the superintendent won't say why. Parents want answers.
"We don't know what's going on. We would like to know why. I think he's been a nice principal this year. He's implemented a lot of programs, the kids got pre-algebra, they got computer labs, a baseball team. He seems to be doing a good job and why he got dismissed, we don't know," says parent Lynne Hudson.
Superintendent Tommy Rogers would not comment on his decision when we questioned him.
Georgia's Professional Standards Commission says a Superintendent has to complete an evaluation of staff before terminating them. Davis says he never received an evaluation.
But according to the commission, an evaluation does not have to be written. It can simply be an observation. The Georgia Department of Education says a principal can appeal a Superintendent's decision to the local school board and to the state.
