Petite named Southern's acting principal

by Michele Catahay

Department of Education's Student Support Services Administrator James Petite is currently the Acting Principal for Southern High School. DOE Superintendent Dr. Nerissa Bretania Underwood says the agency is working on efforts to ensure the kids are safe at the Santa Rita campus.

Last week, Deputy Superintendent Arlene Unpingco, along with Petite, visited the school after receiving news that more than a dozen students ganged-up on another student, causing concerns about the safety of students and bullying.  Underwood says Petite will be situated at Southern High to provide much needed training to the school aides and ensure disciplinary actions are taken appropriately.  

She couldn't say how long Petite would be at that capacity. Principal Jim Reyes is currently off-island attending a disabilities training seminar (required for special education programs). There's no word on whether Petite will be taking over that position when Reyes returns on island this weekend.
