The Kansas City Star explores how some good ol’ fashioned investigative reporting led to the resignation of a high school principal.

“In light of the issues that arose, Amy Robertson felt it was in the best interest of the district to resign her position,” Superintendent Destry Brown said in a statement after the executive session.

The board agreed with that decision and said will reopen the principal position Wednesday morning and contact others who had applied for the job to see if they are still interested.

“Our goal is to find the best person to be our principal that we can find,” Brown said. “I know the students want that too.”
