Controversy Over Removal Of Principal At Saint John High

A group of Saint John High students is planning a protest tomorrow morning in front of the School District office in Millidgeville over the status of their principal Marijke Blok. 

Her contract as principal will not be renewed but she will return to the school as a teacher. 

Anglophone South Superintendent Zoe Watson is well aware of how the students feel but she can't elaborate because it's a personnel issue. The District Education Council also declined to discuss the change in a public forum. The School District is advertsing for her replacement. 

Meantime, the District Education Council has been told it wound up the year with a small surplus of 350 thousand dollars on a budget of 216 million and Watson's contract as Superinentendent has been extended for a five year term.
