McKinley Tech principal placed on leave in transcript tampering investigation

McKinley Technology High School principal David Pinder, under investigation for charges of tampering with student transcripts, was placed on administrative leave Wednesday afternoon. Here’s the formal announcement from DCPS:

“Today, Acting Chancellor Kaya Henderson placed McKinley Technology High School Principal David Pinder on paid administrative leave. The decision, which follows a series of investigations, is not a finding of misconduct. However, it is a necessary precaution given additional information which we received this week.

Last week, information developed in one portion of the McKinley investigation conducted by the DCPS security team was referred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for further review.

DCPS has no further comment on the allegations or investigation.”

More to come.
