DARIEN, Ga. -- An emergency McIntosh County School Board meeting was held Thursday afternoon after three school officials were arrested.
A high school principal and two other school administrators were arrested Wednesday morning in relation to a child molestation case involving a former high school math teacher.
The school board heard a motion to suspend the three school administrators, but that motion failed to get a second which would have sent the matter to a vote. The three administrators are still on the job.
According to The Darien News, McIntosh County Academy Principal Terrance Haywood is facing a felony charge of providing false verbal and written statements to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and a misdemeanor charge of failure to report child abuse.
