Woodbridge Principal Placed On Leave After Investigation

There's a new principal this week at Kilby Elementary School in Woodbridge, Va., but the circumstances that led to the change are still raising many questions with few answers.

It's still not completely clear why Kilby Elementary principal Jennie Bermant was placed on administrative leave Monday, but the removal was prompted by an internal, school system investigation, according to the Prince William County school system. 

The results of that investigation have been turned over to county police, but at this time, the highly-regarded former principal has not been charged.

In a statement posted on the Prince William County Schools' website, the school system calls the investigation both a personnel and police matter, adding only that the system of checks and balances has worked. 

Retired PWCS principal Amy Jordan will step in and serve as Kilby's principal for now to "provide a smooth transition in leadership at the school and continue to provide a quality educational environment for school staff and our students and their families," according to the PWCS statement.
