BELDEN – Ralph Green, the principal of Lee County School District’s alternative school, has been placed on administrative leave, Superintendent Mike Scott confirmed.
Green was placed on indefinite leave last week, Scott said. Scott would not say the reason, citing that it is a personnel issue, but said that it was not for disciplinary action.
In the meantime, Stephen Peugh will serve as principal of the school, which is hosted at the school district’s Belden Center. Peugh is the district’s vocational director.
