Springfield High Principal Suspended On Allegations Of Sexual Harassment

grimes__justin1On Tuesday, September 16, 2014, Springfield High School principal Dr. Justin Grimes was suspended without pay, pending the outcome of an investigation into formal allegations of sexual harassment, according to Robertson County Schools Director Mike Davis.

According to Davis, the investigation into the allegations could take a few weeks. In the absence of Grimes during the investigation several office staff members with Robertson County Schools corporate office will be taking over his responsibilities.

As a result of the ongoing investigation, Davis declined to comment on the specifics of the allegations or how many people were alleged to be involved. Davis did tell us that no students were involved in the allegations.

According to the Robertson County Schools Press Rep Jim Bellis, Police are not part of the investigation.

Dr. Grimes was a teacher at Springfield High and left to pursue other opportunities. According to the Robertson County Schools Website, Dr. Justin Grimes  returned to Springfield High School in 2011 to serve as Principal after serving as Assistant Principal at White House Heritage School for two years and as the Principal of Westside Elementary School for one year.
