(West Fargo, ND) -- A West Fargo Public Schools principal has resigned.

The West Fargo School Board voted unanimously Monday evening to release Jeffry Johnson from his contract.

The district says at least one of two complaints against Johnson has been substantiated.

Johnson, who had been Principal of Freedom Elementary School, had been on leave for several weeks and was not listed internally on staffing reports, despite still being shown as the principal on the school's web page.

The district intends to release more information about the context of the complaints against Johnson at some point Tuesday.
