Education stockTUPELO – Ralph Green, principal of the Lee County School District’s alternative school, was fired on Friday.

Lee County Superintendent Jimmy Weeks said he could not comment on the reason for Green’s termination because of personnel privacy laws.

Retired Lee County Principal Craig Cherry will fill the void at the Belden Center in the interim.

Weeks said he did not know yet whether Green would appeal the decision. The school board also must approve the termination before it is final.
