Dellwood principal placed on leave
Tina Duke, the principal of Dellwood Middle School, has been placed on administrative leave along with three members of staff.
Mike Charles, secretary-general of the Bermuda Union of Teachers, confirmed that the union had been informed that “the principal has been put on administrative duty, as have three staff”.
Mr Charles said the three “indicated that they received letters from the ministry placing them on administrative leave until [the Department of] Child and Family Services can do their investigation at the school”.
Mr Charles was unable to give details of the suspensions, but said it was standard procedure for teachers when the Department of Child and Family Services got involved at a school.
He added: “I just hope that the ministry can shed some light on the situation before rumours start flying.”
In response to a query from The Royal Gazette, a spokeswoman said that it was the education department’s policy that personnel matters were not discussed with the media.
