Updated: Brad Coleman resigns from his position as principal of Airport High School
Fate of administrator decided in Thursday executive session; Coleman had been on administrative leave since February sex scandal involving Airport assistant principal Dawn Diimmler.
Cayce, SC (James Bowers) - Lexington School District Two accepted Airport High School Principal Brad Coleman’s resignation during an executive session at the district office Thursday. The resignation will formally take effect on June 30. Until then, Coleman will remain on administrative leave. Veteran Lexington Two administrator C.R. Hall will continue performing many of the duties of AHS principal until the end of the school year.
District Two Public Information Officer Dawn Kujawa says that Coleman made the decision to leave AHS because he simply felt like it was best for him and his family to close the chapter on his educational career and move on to another pursuit in his life. She stated that Coleman’s decision was unrelated to a sex scandal involving assistant principal Dawn Diimler in February. That is why originally District Two placed Coleman on administrative leave. Coleman was actually offered the opportunity to retain his job as Airport principal, according to Kujawa.
Coleman had been employed with Lexington School District Two for over 20 years and was a popular and respected administrator among students and staff at Airport. He had also served as the principal at Pine Ridge Middle School.
The district will select a permanent successor to Coleman before the 2018-2019 school year.
