WFISD Principal on Administrative Leave

Wichita Falls school officials say on Monday, McNiel Junior High Principal James McBride, was placed on administrative leave with pay.

They say an internal investigation is underway but would not give any details of what is being investigated, only that it is a personnel matter and has nothing to do with any students.

McBride was promoted from his role as McNiel Assistant Principal this summer, and has been at the school since 2006.

He also previously served as assistant principal at Kirby Junior High.

School officials say WFISD Special Projects Officer Dr. Tim Powers is acting as principal at McNiel and will be present at the school's open house Tuesday night.
