MOBILE, Ala .(WALA) - As expected, Mary G. Montgomery High School's principal Wade Whitney has officially been replaced.
FOX10 first reported the school's principal and other faculty members at MGM were expecting to leave the school on May 24.
The Mobile County School Board accepted their resignations and retirements but also voted in a new principal.
Superintendent Dr. Martha Peek said she will announce the new principal's name Thursday, May 30, after she has a chance to congratulate him first.
School officials said they were notified recently that Principal Whitney was stepping down.
Peek said that he had enough years under his belt and decided to retire on his own.
Two other teachers also resigned, according to MCPSS spokesperson Nancy Pierce.
Peek insisted that Whitney's retirement had nothing to do with an alleged sex scandal between MGM math teacher Alicia Gray and a 14-year-old male student.
When asked if his resignation was related to any school policy violations involving other faculty members, Peek said she is unable to discuss personnel matters due to privacy.
No word yet if any other faculty members from the school are expected to come up during future personnel meetings.
