NHS Principal Placed on Administrative Leave

Newton Independent School District has placed high school principal, Timothy Kenebrew on administrative leave pending the outcome of their investigation.

Sheriff Billy Rowles says that the Sheriff’s Office was notified of allegations that the principal was sending text messages to a student.  They investigated those claims and met with the Newton County District Attorney’s Office with their findings.  Rowles told us that while they did find unethical behavior they found no criminal offense and therefore any punishment would be up to the school district.
