NEW BEDFORD, Mass. (WPRI) — Keith Middle School’s assistant principal is no longer an employee in the New Bedford public school system, according to a spokesperson.
John Lima was placed on administrative leave in January, after an alleged safety issue with a student.
The spokesperson said that the school system is “bound by laws and standards concerning interaction with all students. We take these standards very seriously and comply with them to the fullest extent.”
It has not been disclosed whether Lima was let go or chose to leave on his own.
