The suspended principal of Knightdale Elementary School is getting a new job and a pay cut.
This afternoon, the school board transferred Michael Williams over to Wakefield High School in North Raleigh to become one of the assistant principals. School officials say Williams will take a cut in his $55,000 a year salary.
School officials aren't saying if the suspension and transfer are connected to ongoing investigations of test irregularities at Knightdale Elementary.
Test administration is a big deal because it impacts No Child Left Behind and state ABCs bonuses. DPI is waiting for Wake to complete its investigation first.
