The principal of Bell Elementary School, Dr. Sandra Love has been replaced. TISD's superintendent says it's because she failed to put a stop to a skit, put on by employees of the school. Four Bell Elementary teachers and another district employee had already lost their jobs for participating in the skit, that has been deemed by the district as "racially insensitive".
Friday afternoon, Kim Tunnell, the district's Coordinator Of Staff Development, was named the acting principal. The job for principal will be posted Monday. The district says it hopes to have a new principal named before the end of this school year.
