PEEKSKILL, New York — A suburban New York high school principal who alerted his district about an irregularity in student transcripts plans to resign.
The Journal News (http://lohud.us/1iPkUe1 ) says District Clerk Debra McLeod has confirmed the impending departure of Fred Hutchinson.
Trustee Lisa Aspinall-Kellawon said it's not related to the scandal. She's praising Hutchinson for identifying the problem.
The probe led to administrative leave for four guidance counselors and the head of the social studies department.
A month later, school officials concluded that at least 34 seniors had received credits for a nonexistent class. Instead of graduating, eight of them had to return to school and make up the credits.
