Principal fired after cheating scandal, gets new position

CLARKSDALE, Miss.- Former Principal of Clarksdale’s Heidelberg Elementary School, who was accused of orchestrating cheating, recieved a new position even as her license is being questioned

Lowanda Tyler-Jones, the former principal in question, was named as the communications coordinator for the district’s magnet school program by Superintendent Dennis Dupree.

Tyler-Jones was originally accused of fudging test scores after becoming principal in 2012. Her license expired on June 30 and the Mississippi department of Education is preparing a response to her request for renewal.

A hearing began in May by the teacher licensure commission to discuss revoking Tyler-Jones’ license, but the hearing has since been put on hold.
