Brainerd High Principal put on leave

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – The Hamilton County School system has placed a high school principal on leave pending an investigation.

Brainerd High’s Dr. Crystal Sorrells was put on leave effective on Monday.

She has been under fire since an incident at the school earlier this month.

A parent alleged that their child was punched in the face by a third-party security officer at the school.

The question has been whether a high school principal can hire outside security.

Dr. Sorrells will remain on leave while the Department of Children’s Services investigates.

Assistant Principal Dr. Sharon Morgan is serving as the interim now.
