Fairmont Senior High Principal Suspended

Marion County

The principal at Fairmont Senior High School has been suspended for four days.

Media outlets report the Marion County Board of Education approved Tyson Furgason’s suspension Tuesday night.

County schools Superintendent Gary Price says Furgason’s failure to complete daily duties was the reason behind the suspension.

Furgason has not been at school since leaving on Jan. 4 following a discussion with Price.

Although the suspension was for four days, Price says he’s not sure when Furgason will return. He says assistant principals and other administrators are performing Furgason’s duties in his absence.
