A Calvert school principal may be out of a job soon. The school board met in closed session Tuesday night to negotiate buying out the contract for Spigner Elementary principal, LeeEtta Mable.
The school's attorney, Bryan Russ, says the board is going in a different direction as far as principals and asked to buy out Mable's contract. He says there is nothing negative to say about Mable and that the decision to end her contract does not reflect on her job performance.
Terms of the Mable's departure were discussed in executive session with Russ and Mable's attorney. Details of any potential agreements or severance package deals are not being released at this time. News 3 has tried to contact Mable and her attorney for comment, but neither could be reached.
Mable would make the third major Calvert school official to leave so far this year. In May former Superintendent Morris Ogden stepped down. Once again the board cited a change in direction but say it was a mutual and amicable agreement. In June school board member, Barbara Bird, submitted her resignation. She said she was leaving because of the change in the direction of the board and health problems.
