Ringgold High School Principal Dwayne Homa has been suspended with pay, but the board and administration is not saying why.

Board President Mariann Bulko confirmed the suspension on Sunday.

“We have to go through the proper procedures,” Bulko said. “All I can say he was suspended with pay.”

Bulko said the board was informed of the action taken by the district administration, but was not given details. She said the board has not been privy to the details because if the investigation upholds the suspension, his due process could involve a hearing before the board. Thus, the administration is withholding details so that Homa can have a fair hearing before the directors.

Bulko said she is hesitant to discuss the case further in the event Homa is cleared.

Bulko said an internal investigation has been ongoing. “We were aware there was a problem, but we don't know what the problems are.”

Superintendent Dr. Karen Polkabla also confirmed the suspension, but added, “I'm not going to comment because it is a personnel matter.”
