Stroud was the third administrator removed from his school in three months. Also in March, an administrator at Miller Groves Middle School was investigated after a student said the man, Brian Kelly, had hit him, resulting in a scar. According to a report on the incident, witnesses said the male student had banged his head against several items, including lockers, and Kelly had not touched him.
In January, Lakeside High School Principal Jason Clyne was removed from the school after allegations he told janitors during a meeting, among other things, that he was the “master of this plantation,” referring to the school. An investigation into Clyne discovered several unfinished investigations into other allegations, including sexual harassment. Clyne resigned in March, but officials have said he is serving out the remainder of the school year working from home on assignments given to him by the district.
