The Riverdale Press, New York/May 18, 2009

Principal Philip Scharper has been reassigned from PS 24, according to sources.

Marvin Shelton, President of District 10's Community Education Council, confirmed Mr. Scharper's removal from the school by District Superintendent Sonia Menendez, saying he had been "temporarily reassigned pending investigation."

The principal, who has had complaints lodged against him for religious proselytizing and for contributing to an environment rife with bullying as well as instances of corporal punishment, was last at school on Friday, Mr. Shelton said.

"Where he's reassigned to, I have no idea," he said.
